A golden haze for a summer’s daze. Elder Betty is a weiss-style ale with a bready malt flavor balanced by a touch of hops and complimented by the tart berry flavors of elderberry.

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Mep3222 (987) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Had elder Betty in variety pack from food lion for 2014 July 4th. Light beer, sweet aroma and taste of wheat beer. Not bad for a hot day.

Stampion (190) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow. Smells mild bitterness and berry. A nice relaxin refreshing beer. Berries aren't too strong. Almost forgettable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet and aromatic, with a purple elderberry hue. Juicy on the palate, a little sweet, and refreshing.

Bottle: Pours a cloudy yellow with a solid, big white head. Aromas are fruity... I guess Elder Berries, but I’m not sure what that smells like. Berry nice flavor with great wheat notes, and the tart berries pulling through it all. Love this beer. Fruity...but delicious.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. This is one of my favorite Magic Hat brews. Amazing berry aromas but not overpowering. Nice smooth beer with a hint of bitterness from the hops!
