Had this as part of a variety12 pack. Pours wheat aley murky yellow brown. Smells like berries and other fruity nonsense. Tastes like berries too with a malty wheat ale taste and not much hops. The fruit and the malts donít mesh well, the wheaty earthiness of the malt kind of makes the berries taste funky, almost rancid. Not to say that this is a bad beer, itís actually very pleasant and drinkable, just not one Iíd get on a daily basis.

GIJOE (594) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Pours a bit hazy, yellow-gold in color, fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. The nose is very fruity; some breadiness. Fairly sweet. Light bodied. Soft carbonation. Didnít suck.

Headbanger (3246) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2014
12oz bottle 7/18/14 (Jewel Mix A Six)-42į in Shaker-Pours a hazy gold with no head. Aroma of wheat, berry and funk. Taste of I suppose elderberry. This light bodied brew is not bad but not the best.

tectactoe (1519) - Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle: Burnt-ish amber, moderately hazy & topped with a slightly dingy white, chunky foam. Aroma has some lightly tart wheat & berry notes. Slightly medicinal but not nearly as bad as Magic Hatís #9. Not sure what elderberries smell like, but this just has a generic "berry" vibe on the nose. Mild graininess. Taste is the same, but light. More wheat with underlying tart berry. A touch metallic & medicinal, but not completely enough to kill the beer. Sharp yeast finish, a touch of astringency, berry, more clumpy wheat. Not awful, but I will be avoiding this one in the future.

Crispy34 (357) - Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2014
12oz bottle. Aroma is of sweet fruit with a malt funk. Appearance is a hazy gold. Taste is weird at first then steels into a nice berry flavor. Kinda weak. Palate is normal. Overall, a refreshingly decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beastmaster (228) - Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2014
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.

Mep3222 (421) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
