Aroma is very citrus-like; humbled and not overpowering. Hazy golden - hop character is noticeable and eloquently balanced. Fitting of a weiss style beer. If you find this .. Give it a shot .. It may surprise you. (Recommended) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Wheaty and fruity, this is yet another Magic Hat beer that just doesn’t do anything for me.

"Refreshing, but very very simple. Wasn’t impressed by the nose or flavor, as a fruit beer, or as a Weiss. Semi sweet without any depth to the wheat ale. Meh..."

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Dark berry aroma with some bready notes. A hazy light orange amber pour with a thin white ring and no lacing. A blast of elderberry flavor to begin with followed by wheat and some hints of bread. Medium-light body and fizzy carbonation. Overall, this was better than I expected. I found it refreshing and would drink again.

Fucken nasty grape kool-aid flavor kids beer. Wat. The. Fuck.

This would be best served at a kids 5th birthday party.

Pours cloudy and golden. Aroma hints at fruit and malt. Light with subtle berry flavor.

Flavor is much better than the aroma. Aroma is a bit skunky and the flavor flavor is fruity and delicious.

Hazy purple amber color. Pleasantly cloudy as expected. Modest berry flavor, but to the tart side.
