Not bad at all! Very good golden pour w/ a big white head that leaves a ring of lacing. The aroma is subtle but has a nice berry undertone to it. The taste is fairly plain w/ that little hint of berry in there. It’s easy on the palate w/ a touch of bitterness in the finish. Decent.

Aroma, sour fruit: raspberry, BlackBerry. I’m not familiar with elderberry bourbon guessing that’s what I’m smelling. App: cloudy yellow, Small white head. Taste: airy, sweet and sour, plum,wheat. Not pasty at all for a wheat beer. Feel: above average carbonation, Very nice. Yea, magic hat.

Transfer from BA review from 6-7-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – It pours a hazy deeper golden color with a huge, thick white head. The head has quite good retention and slowly fades to give a light to medium amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma is rather interesting. It has a yeast and doughy with some lemon and elderberry smell with a somewhat funky aroma. There is a somewhat bitter aroma mixed in as well; the aroma is overall somewhat satisfying. Taste – The taste is light elderberry and dough up front mixed with a lighter citrus flavor. These flavors form a base for the brew lasting the entire taste experience. The lemon flavor remains the same in the taste, while the elderberry seems to intensify more toward the middle. At the end, the yeasty doughy flavors really gets rather strong and mix with a somewhat bitter lemon and funky flavor which linger on the tongue for quite some time. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is slightly above average with a carbonation level being on the average side. The body is quite nice for the doughy taste with the carbonation good for the citrus flavors. Very fitting for the brew. Overall – This was a rather interesting beer. A little different, but good none the less.

Pours a nice rich golden. Smell is artificial berry and malt. light smell. taste is similar with fake berries but sweeter a bit. Light malt and not really any bitterness to speak of. Tastes ok, but a bit fake and sweet. Medium body light carbonation. One time buy here.

Block (1342) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Not an overly great wheat beer but it is a nice, light beer with a bit of hops. The elderberry adds a somewhat different finish and aftertaste.

Pours a hazy yellow with pink hue, tiny white head. Aroma is grape, raspberry, blueberry, cough syrup, hay. Taste is medium sweet, light salt / light hop, doughy. Light/Med body, average carbonation. Reminiscent of a berry soda made with splenda... not my favorite.

jmgreenuk (4230) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear straw colour with a round bubbly white head. The aroma is yeast, rye, light banana. The flavour is neutral veggie with a caramel toffee malt, light zesty red-berry fruit palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Not too bad at all I have to say. I’m not a fan of the style but quite enjoyed this.
