On tap, pours golden color with a small white head. Nose is tart, bananas, doughy. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. This is a decent summertime beer, but not my favorite of the style.

Very pale yellow with lots of bubbles, not too appetizing to look at but whatever, itís beer. Tangy aromas yeast aromas, but picking up a bit of microwave popcorn diacetyl? Never had an elderberry before so donít know what it íshouldí taste like, but itís good! The elderberry lends some nice fruity and floral nodes quite different from the addition of hops. Very little head, but an almost unpleasantly high amount of carbonation (12 oz bottle).

Very subtle sweet aroma. The taste is a touch tart with some floral notes. It's bubbly. The bubbles tickle my nose.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crisp hazy wheat beer with thin berry flavor. I donít love it but I find little wrong with it so I guess that makes it a good beer.

Bottle->weizen. Hazy gold with medium white head. A: funky berries, fruit, and spices (presumably the elderberries), wheat, bread. T: tart wheat, berries, spice. Intersting, but iltimately unsatisfying.

I didnít come in with high expectations but Iím pleasantly surprised. Magic hat does well with the subtle flavors - #9 is also brilliant. This is their strong suit. Keep it up.

Had this as part of a variety12 pack. Pours wheat aley murky yellow brown. Smells like berries and other fruity nonsense. Tastes like berries too with a malty wheat ale taste and not much hops. The fruit and the malts donít mesh well, the wheaty earthiness of the malt kind of makes the berries taste funky, almost rancid. Not to say that this is a bad beer, itís actually very pleasant and drinkable, just not one Iíd get on a daily basis.

12 oz bottle, Kroger, Delaware. Pale golden; diminutive fizzy white head dissipates into nothing; basically no lacing. Aroma largely biscuit, with notes of wheat beer yeast and tart berry. Flavor is really mild with some unidentifiable berry flavor that sort of resembles blueberry; hardly any bitterness to speak of. Thin body. Really unimpressive, even for Magic Hat.
