Purple Haze poured with a small to medium, bone colored head. Beer color is a slightly orange-ish gold. It is very cloudy, with a lot of various size sediment in the glass. The aroma has some wheat, with fruit and vegetal notes. I don't get a particular 'berry' scent in the aroma. There is a prominent berry note to the taste, but it is not overpowering. You get the malt first, then the berry comes in on the back of the taste. The raspberry is a nice balance of sweet and tart. Not overly complex, as the malt and berry are about all I am getting. The aftertaste is slightly metallic with a bit of the berry. Although I am not normally a fan of the fruit beers, this has a nice balance and is one I would drink again.
