Bottle: Pours a cloudy yellow with a solid, big white head. Aromas are fruity... I guess Elder Berries, but Im 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!

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a very thin ring. The nose is very fruity with a light yeastiness and a little wheat. The flavor is pretty bland and boring with just a light sweet fruitiness and a minimal yeastiness. Pretty simple stuff, about what youd expect from a fruited wheat. Light bodied and a bit clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh.

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. Its easy on the palate w/ a touch of bitterness in the finish. Decent.

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.
