12 oz bottle, Kroger, Delaware. Pale golden; diminutive fizzy white head dissipates into nothing; basically no lacing. Aroma largely biscuit, with notes of wheat beer yeast and tart berry. Flavor is really mild with some unidentifiable berry flavor that sort of resembles blueberry; hardly any bitterness to speak of. Thin body. Really unimpressive, even for Magic Hat.

Pours a hazy dark golden yellow color. Aromas of malts, a touch of honey. Flavor is the same as the nose, nice malt taste with honey like sweetness. Smooth hop finish, medium body with a quick aftertaste.

Elder Betty is my favorite fruit beer I’ve ever had. It’s not like other fruit beers, where you think you’re just drinking cider; there’s enough of an aftertaste that reminds you that it’s beer to know it isn’t cider, and it’s not overpowering with one fruit. I love it.

It is hazy light amber in color. The head is almost non existent after the initial pour. It has aromas of bread, cinnamon, and wheat. The flavors of bread, berry, and sweet brown sugar with a dash of cinnamon dominate the flavor palate. It’s listed as a wheat ale, but it doesn’t resemble any wheat ale that I’ve had. If your looking for a unique taste, this one has it. If you are looking for a true wheat ale, this isn’t it.

Put us to bed. This beer is going to bring it. It has a fruit taste and darker malty taste.

Hazy golden color , medium-size white head. Wheat malt and berry in aroma. Light taste of malt with yeast and some berries ( grape?) . Easy-drinkable refreshing beer.

Pours a hazy golden color with a small head that dissipated quickly. The aroma is grapes and berrys. In the flavor, I pick up grapes more so than the berry and some wheat. Not a huge fan of this beer.

Initial taste is a nice blend of wheat and hops. Nice fruit under tones that complement well.

355ml bottle. Primarily tastes of wheat ale, but there is a fruity sweetness and sourness that comes through. Not cloying, but also not all that distinct. Didn’t know what an elderberry tasted like when I started and I still really don’t now. Would be a reasonably refreshing generic berry summer beer.

Very fruity. Good taste for the beer itself and the berries come out. Could easily take this to a party and pLease many people.
