COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden haze for a summers 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.

Bottle into a goblet. Pour is a haze honey orange with a white fine head. Aroma is that of a time when your out picking blue or black berries in the summertime. Taste is a malt filled with the berry juice. Finish is a sweet berry that hangs out a while.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet and aromatic, with a purple elderberry hue. Juicy on the palate, a little sweet, and refreshing.

Bottle: Pours a cloudy yellow with a solid, big white head. Aromas are fruity... I guess Elder Berries, but Im 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.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2014
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 youd expect from a fruited wheat. Light bodied and a bit clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh.

(12oz bottle) Pours a hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of elderberry, wheat, and minerals. Flavor of elderberry, whip cream, muffins, blueberries, and caramel.
