Tap at Indigoís. Nose is light mixed berry and some bready wheat with a hint of citrus. Hay in the nose as well. Taste is similar with more hay and bread notes. Some light berry and a nice wheat finish. Not a bad brew.

Bottle. Hazy golden/orange pour. Smell of malt and a lot of berry. Tastes of malts and blueberries. Not bad but a little too fruity to drink more than one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy dull umber-yellow with a low, short lived head. Aroma is a little sweaty, with a floral berry essence. The flavour is wheat first, with estery yeast, finishing with a floral blueberryish note, which I assume to be elderberry having never tasted one. Not bad but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wheaty aroma has a decided berry overtone - must be elderberries. Pours a pretty clear bright yellow with a very thick, though effervescent, eggshell head. Flavor is wheaty and yeasty, and the slightly sour elderberry note holds its own. Even a bit of hops makes an appearance. Texture is quite fizzy and smooth, though a tad thin. What a beer to welcome Fall!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled April 8th and poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint on May 20th.
Appearance: Interesting label that sort of looks like a tree with eyes and a nose, but then on another glance, it looks like a woman at the trunk. Pretty cool label. Slightly hazy yellow-orange color with a finger of head that dissipates to a simple white ring on top of the beer. No lacing. Looks alright.
Smell: I donít know what elderberry tastes or smells like, but I will say that the aroma has a lot of berry aromas with a slight funk from the yeast.
Taste: Pretty one-dimensional, but enjoyable in spite of that. Thereís a nice berry flavor, with a slight malt finish -- I donít get much hop flavor to specifically speak of, and little if any bitterness at all. Pretty light and refreshing with a solid carbonation.
A very drinkable and refreshing late spring or summer beer -- it reminds me quite a lot of Samuel Adams Blackberry Witbier, just with a different look and slightly different mouth feel. Pretty average ... not awful.
