A golden haze for a summer’s 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.

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

It is hazy light amber in color. The head is almost non existent after the initial pour. It has aromas of bread, cinnamon, and wheat. The flavors of bread, berry, and sweet brown sugar with a dash of cinnamon dominate the flavor palate. It’s listed as a wheat ale, but it doesn’t resemble any wheat ale that I’ve had. If your looking for a unique taste, this one has it. If you are looking for a true wheat ale, this isn’t it.

Put us to bed. This beer is going to bring it. It has a fruit taste and darker malty taste.

Hazy golden color , medium-size white head. Wheat malt and berry in aroma. Light taste of malt with yeast and some berries ( grape?) . Easy-drinkable refreshing beer.

Pours a hazy golden color with a small head that dissipated quickly. The aroma is grapes and berrys. In the flavor, I pick up grapes more so than the berry and some wheat. Not a huge fan of this beer.

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..."
