1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A very mild Weiss that would be marginally acceptable if not for an overwhelming taste I can only describe as very overripe oversweet blueberries crossed with polgranette. Just barely drinkable enough that I will drink the other two in the mix pack. But what makes it mildly acceptable is that it is a light enough taste that you barely notice that its bad- you know, like with Bud Light, but involving fruit. A few more fruit beers like this and I might have to adopt Triple H?s "Man Law" from the old Miller Lite commercials- no beer with fruit (I?ll admit to liking some beers with *a little bit* of orange, lemon, or lime, and, oddly, cranberry lambics). Between this stuff and shandies, ugh. Summer seasonals have mostly jumped the shark. Time for a reboot. Someone try something radically different for beer next summer please.

Bottle by the pool. Poured a little and its cloudy yellow. Sweet aroma malty. Sweet blueberry, raspberry, and i suppose elderberry. Tangy and refreshing. Malt heavy with a funky bitter aftertaste. Well balanced fruit beer.

Nice light berry aroma with a wheaty slight barnyard funk base. Taste is a hint of berry, and then maybe grassy and wheaty. Has good flavor for a lighter beer and is quite refreshing. Pretty well balanced. This is a solid one from magic hat and I didn't have high expectations.

Very fruity and sweet tasting thanks to the elderberries with some malted wheat and mild citra-hoppiness. Decent.

Had elder Betty in variety pack from food lion for 2014 July 4th. Light beer, sweet aroma and taste of wheat beer. Not bad for a hot day.

Pours a cloudy yellow. Smells mild bitterness and berry. A nice relaxin refreshing beer. Berries aren't too strong. Almost forgettable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet and aromatic, with a purple elderberry hue. Juicy on the palate, a little sweet, and refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a cloudy yellow with a solid, big white head. Aromas are fruity... I guess Elder Berries, but I’m 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!

Poured from a bottle. Clear yellow color, small white head. Mild blueberry smell. Light body with a light sweet blueberry flavor and a light finish.

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 you’d expect from a fruited wheat. Light bodied and a bit clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh.
