Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium orange with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that dissipated rapidly down to a small collar with poor spotty lacing. The aroma was of a light bread malt and a strong sweet doughy yeast with a very noticeable note of elderberries. The taste was up front with a strong wheat presence and then had a big dose of berry flavor mix in and that was pretty much the case throughout the rest of the tasting. The flavor lasted an average amount time with the yeasty berry flavor only left for a short time on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a strong lively carbonation. Overall a very fruity Wheat Ale, refreshing and tasty but nothing overly special...

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. ---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.

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.

ADesenberg (552) - Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle: Pours a cloudy yellow with a solid, big white head. Aromas are fruity... I guess Elder Berries, but Iím 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 (4858) - 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 youíd expect from a fruited wheat. Light bodied and a bit clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh.
