Triple Haze ~ Abita Brewing

Appearance: dense purplish haze under an off-white bready head. The color is interesting, if not a bit off-putting – pink grapefruit meets raspberry meets blender.

Nose: I had to dig deep to find the nose on this beer. Angel food cake. White bread without the crust. Frozen blueberries and strawberries. Sweetened pink grapefruit in the back. Lemon and berry ice.

Palate: berry juices and angel food cake in the middle. Light, airy, and very bland. Nothing along the edges. Blueberry and strawberry ice while lemon ice nips faintly before disappearing in the swallow. More than halfway through faint berry skin tannic bitterness tries to impress.

Final Thoughts: meh. Boring if I do so and I do. The original Triple Haze from Abita is far better. For a bigger badder brother to the Triple Haze, he falls short on all counts. Forgettable.
