355mL thanks to maniac. Clear straw. No head formation. Aroma is thick sugar, old grape soda, sticky sugar, urinal cake. Taste is old Halloween candies and candy corn. Lots of artificial candies and treats. So gross. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shiny straw color with a golden shine and a little white head. Quite clear. Aroma is a toasty, slightly sour, malt. A littl wheat and sweet malth come through. Flavor is sweet malt, and a fairly clean feel. A bit sour and wheaty.

gripweed57 (979) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber color. A ton of bubbles lead to a small foamy white head. Pleasant fragrant fruity malt aroma. Honeysuckle, berries and mango come to mind. Light refreshing tangy wheat malt flavor. Reminds me of a shandy, only less sweet. Some hop bitterness in finish, clean and crisp. A very drinkable summer brew. The elderberry makes it unique.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2012
12oz bottle poured into glass. Not sure what type of berry they used here, elder I guess, but it smells a lot like a mix between blueberry and raspberry. Definitely a summer thats for sure. Not too bad but nothing really special.

Another flavored offering from magic hat, this beer is a good beer if you like fruit flavored beers. It has a nice clor and a hazy heffeweizen color, reminds me a little of Abita’s "purple haze" but not as sweet. Elder berries are a nice touch. This would make a great lawnmower beer on a hot humid day. Refreshing!
