3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased at Evolution Liquors in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a nice hot summer Sunday, great way to enjoy this one. Appearance is a cloudy maroon gold with a thin white head that is bubbly. Aroma is of tart berries, light sweetness, not much more. Taste goes down tart and leaves a sour taste, definitely fruity with a dry finish. Overall itís good for the season but not much else.

Bottle from Julie and Brian. Pretty decent summer beer. Just a hint of elderberry, or is that a joke and its really blueberry? Though my Mother used to go elderberry picking so there is such a thing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow color, foamy white head, honey-orange aroma, orange peel flavor, slightly bitter taste, fizzy, long finish. Interesting for a wheat ale, very fruity.

Yikes, this is one strange brew and not in a good way. The berry gives it a very muddled taste and doesnít mix well with the wheat. Different, but didnít like it much.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Definitely more drinkable than the standard #9, but still not a great fruit beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle. Pours hazy dark gold. Tastes smooth, light, sweet, like berry and very light hops. Smells like light malt and sugar.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can, poured an amber color with full frothy head. Aroma of lemon grass, some banana, orange, wheat grass. Medium sweetness. Some berry taste flavors, with some citrus notes. Average carbonation. Litte watery, slick texture. Slight tartness. Not bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dull and slightly hazy orange in color. White head goes away quickly. Nose has some fruit in it, but its muddled - not rotting, but over-ripe. Taste is garbage. Yuck.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A fine fruity wheat beer, but not very upfront with itís body and balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Muted orange, slightly hazy, thin white head. Bit of a wild berry aroma. Drinks with a musty gristiness of a wheat beer, the earthy berry essence taking just a subtle side role. Pleasant enough, good summer sipper. (#5080, 6/27/2013)
