Purple haze all in my brain…recently took a trip to the Big Easy, New Orleans, so of course I had to sample some local cuisine and some local beer. Ordered up some char-broiled oysters and decided to wash them down with some Purple Haze by local brewery Abita. With names like Purple Haze and Turbo Dog how could I resist. A ‘fruit and vegetable’ beer, I took a sip and the first thing that hit me was a taste I couldn’t put a handle on. I quickly jotted down my first impression and what I wrote was ‘fruity and weird’. A slight raspberry taste but there was just this flavour that I found ruined any hope this beer had. You want to try it go ahead, but you’ve been warned….
