3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle.
Pours a slightly cloudy orange amber thin off white head. Aroma is floral and slightly hoppy. Flavor is slight wheat with subtle berry. Rather lite. I am not big on the Weiss, but this is nice. Not an odd "specialty beer". I would buy a case of this in the summertime.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle multiple times. Most recently from Market Basket. Copper/ amber color with thin head that dies fast. Elderberries always have had a medicinal and tea -like quality to it. This beer displays the same thing. The flavor has a good malt backbone of toffee and pale honey like flavor with the tea and berry lingering slightly after the finish. A very light bitterness comes from the herbal medicinal note that come from the berry. Body is very light with a soft carbonation. Overall drinkable.

Pours a bit hazy, yellow-gold in color, fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. The nose is very fruity; some breadiness. Fairly sweet. Light bodied. Soft carbonation. Didn’t suck.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Bottle: Burnt-ish amber, moderately hazy & topped with a slightly dingy white, chunky foam. Aroma has some lightly tart wheat & berry notes. Slightly medicinal but not nearly as bad as Magic Hat’s #9. Not sure what elderberries smell like, but this just has a generic "berry" vibe on the nose. Mild graininess. Taste is the same, but light. More wheat with underlying tart berry. A touch metallic & medicinal, but not completely enough to kill the beer. Sharp yeast finish, a touch of astringency, berry, more clumpy wheat. This is not really a good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Aroma is of sweet fruit with a malt funk. Appearance is a hazy gold. Taste is weird at first then steels into a nice berry flavor. Kinda weak. Palate is normal. Overall, a refreshingly decent beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle by the pool. Poured a little and its cloudy yellow. Sweet aroma malty. Sweet blueberry, raspberry, and i suppose elderberry. Tangy and refreshing. Malt heavy with a funky bitter aftertaste. Well balanced fruit beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice light berry aroma with a wheaty slight barnyard funk base. Taste is a hint of berry, and then maybe grassy and wheaty. Has good flavor for a lighter beer and is quite refreshing. Pretty well balanced. This is a solid one from magic hat and I didn't have high expectations.

Very fruity and sweet tasting thanks to the elderberries with some malted wheat and mild citra-hoppiness. Decent.
