nice wheat beer base that is enhanced by the elderberry. very good beer for magic hat , but in general just not worth avoiding...

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light orange with a small white head. Aroma is sweet citric and fruity, some berry juice and some wheat, a note of gummy bear like candy. Flavor starts sweet and a bit sugary citric, picking up some of the berry and a wheat note in the finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.

Cloudy amber, small off-white head.
Scent is wheat and berry...(surprise!)
Taste is quite pleasant...like a fruit beer that that isn’t over-the-top-infused.
A rather refreshing beer, actually.
Light, crisp and sweet.
Not too bad at all.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap. Pours hazy gold with average, fizzy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is cereal and cookie malt, blueberries, floral hops, and light pine. Flavor is bland malt and faint hops; fruit flavors seem to just add confusion; dry finish. Light body, low carbonation, and low warmth.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange with a small white head. The aroma has smooth american wheat, berries (elder, I presume), floral and herbal traits. Medium body that’s fuller than expected with semi-soft carbonation. The taste is much like the aroma and is fairly natural tasting along with some light citrus. The finish is a bit spicier and fruitier. Nice - one of the better Magic Hat beers I’ve had.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my favorite fruit/weiss beers I’ve tried to date. pours a delicious cloudy amber copper with a substantial head. Taste is wonderful. Raspberry fruit flavor does not dominate this beer but is an outstanding companion to the tasty wheat flavor of this beer. One of the more drinkable beers I’ve tried in a while too. Palate is pleasant and sturdy. Love this beer!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Geraghty’s. Pours a hazy golden color, small to medium head, with min lace. Aromas are weak, maybe some fruity malts, little bit of hops,and some earthy notes. Taste had more behind it with the elderberrys coming through, not really any lemons, some faint hops. Crisp and refreshing, alright, just bland like most magic hats. As it warmed it got sour and artificial tasting. Not for me.

Pours a cloudy light golden color. Aroma is of malts, hops, and I guess elderberries. Flavor is a little fruity. I can pick up some berries along with some malts and wheat. A decent summer brew.
