Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a hazy brown colored body with a fizzy soft white head that dies within twenty seconds. No lacing was left and very little carbonation was seen rising. The smell had some orange, grape and cherry. All three of these were pretty distinct from each other - not really taking any sort of blend. The taste had orange, grape and cherry, not much else, maybe a bit of honey, but wasnít exactly combined right, something just didnt quite right taste right? The palate sat light and the carbonation was definitely felt, a bit harsh on the tongue. Overall, well, Iím glad I only got a single of this just to try and I donít think Iíll get this again.

Nice change on a wheat beer. Could easily be classified as a fruit beer. Aroma is wheat with berry notes. Taste is of wheat followed by a small berry fruitfulness.

Bottle. I enjoyed this. Nice notes of berry, wheat, hop and citrus fruit. Finish was slightly doughy...This would be a good summer brew.

from Mondial de la BiŤre 2013, Mulhouse - cloudy blond-orange beer with no foam left; aroma of elder flowers, apricots and tea; medium-bodied and juicy, quite sweet yet balanced by a late acidic tartness; light chewy and pretty long and dry fruity finish where elder dominates

Lightly hazed golden amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of berries, honey, yeast and malt. Taste of mild fruit, malt, berries, yeast, wheat and a mild dry and tart finish.

Bottle. Hazy golden/orange pour. Smell of malt and a lot of berry. Tastes of malts and blueberries. Not bad but a little too fruity to drink more than one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6172) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle. Hazy dull umber-yellow with a low, short lived head. Aroma is a little sweaty, with a floral berry essence. The flavour is wheat first, with estery yeast, finishing with a floral blueberryish note, which I assume to be elderberry having never tasted one. Not bad but nothing special.

A very good summer beer that is lite but still flavorful and refreshing. Aroma is wheat,berry,citrus and a touch of hop. Flavors are well balanced between sweet,dry and lite fruits.

Wheaty aroma has a decided berry overtone - must be elderberries. Pours a pretty clear bright yellow with a very thick, though effervescent, eggshell head. Flavor is wheaty and yeasty, and the slightly sour elderberry note holds its own. Even a bit of hops makes an appearance. Texture is quite fizzy and smooth, though a tad thin. What a beer to welcome Fall!
