Ok. The nose is plain with some citrus notes and herbal hops. The beer is hazy amber with a white foamy head. The taste is the same with a little tart berry in the back. Crisp and medium bodied.

The aroma is malty and somewhat yeasty with a fruity like essence but hardly any. The hops are herbal in nature. The appearance is deep cloudy gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer but does not have much of a elderberry taste or smell.

Pretty good beer, but does take some getting used to considering that it has a fruity hint to it. Overall, I like it a lot, but I would not seek it out.

Mondial de la bière 2012 - Bière dorée, à peine voilée et coiffée d’un fin col ne traçant pas le verre. Des arômes de céréales, d’herbes vertes et de fruits rouges. Elle est peu amère, assez minérale et passablement sucrée. Elle est plutôt mince, légèrement effervescente et se termine sur des arômes éthérés.

It;s a fruit wheat beer from Magic Hat. What were you expecting? It smells artificial, It’s sweet an cloying, and the furthest thing in the world from refreshing. No.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose - same yeast as #9, berry and heaps of peaches. Head was non-existent. Color - a hazy orange color. Flavor - Does hold with magic hat’s tradition of being different. More of the raspberry flavor on the tounge, with a lot of fruity acitity. Part of the flavor was even chalky. I can see where they were going with this one, but they didn’t get it dead on. Whatever yeast they use does not mesh with the rest of the beer. Always taste disjointed. Low carbonation. The beer is light and summery, so if that’s what they were going for, they hit their mark. Enjoyability 2.5/5

Pours hazy gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet summer fruit ant yeast aromas. Thin and mildly tart with hay, strawberry and blueberry front to back. Lasting mild bitter earth

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is fruity, I’m guessing elderberry. I’ve never had elderberry but I’m guessing that scent. A wheat characteristic with yeast and an underlying banana note. Appearance is cloudy orange with a medium white head that diminishes to a soapy film. Taste has a very berry (elderberry) note to it. It’s good but not quite as balanced as I would like. Palte has minimal carbonation with an aftertaste of lingering berries. Overall, It’s a good berry beer. Just not my cup of tea. Cheers!

Bottle. Poured a very hazy yellow with no real head at all. Aroma was bready, citrus, lemon grass, and berries. Flavor was malts, bread, yeast and lemon. Finish was the elderberries and some tart ness. Something just wasn’t right here.
