COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.

drsandman (310) - New York, USA - JUN 1, 2014
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 (4360) - 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.

solidfunk (4012) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Some light elderberry which is well integrated but doesn’t necessarily make this a better beer. Pours cloudy golden with good head and lacing. Light acrid cellar taste to it that is ok. Light sweet finish. On tap at DC Summerfest.

Bottle. Celery soma,I presume elderberry but would call it a good fake grape nose.in the mouth light, pretty well carbonated.the fruit is light which I appreciate good amount if wheat. Short finish

Understand what you’re getting into here. Slightly sweet, with a nice finish. Nice beer if you know what to expect.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Not a fruit beer? It’s all about the berries. It poured a slightly hazed deep yellow body with a sustained tall sudsy head. Highly carbonated. The aroma was berry filled - apparently elderberry - with some warm white bread. It tasted as it smelled and finished on a fruity note with a "stemmy" bitterness. No more.

Bottle poured a golden hue w/ a small quickly and fully diminishing white head. Moderate sweet aroma of grapes and berries. Initial flavor is a light sweet w/ a heavy bitter finish. Tastes are straw, raspberry, apple, lemon. Light bodied, watery texture, lively carbonation and a moderate astringent feel in the finish.
