2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from publix. Pours hazy brownish orange with very little head and what is there leaves quickly. The aroma is like a berry wit which i believe this beer to be. I am unfamiliar with the aroma of the elder berry so i can not say it is authentic or otherwise. The taste is very full of berries. This is a nice summer choice but geared more toward a womanly palate.

Pours a hazy off-yellow with a light wheaty-citrus aroma. Flavor is light and similarly wheaty with a backhand of light berries. Solidly drinkable and not too fruity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - pours light orange with a faint whitish head that dissipates almost immediately. Aroma is quite heavy on the fruit, though the fruits themselves are somewhat hard to distinguish. Definitely some wheaty notes coming through as well. Flavor is, well, not half bad...slightly cloying, but not offensively so. Lots of berry-ish notes, an underlying wheat component and pretty much no hop note whatsoever. Palate is easy drinking...far from complex and lasting, but it is what it is supposed to be! Would I drink this all the time...no. Would I have it again...sure!

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Greg. Thin white head, quickly fades to minimal. Bubbles on the side of the glass. Hazy amber / golden color. Crisp carbonation (burpy), drier finish. Interesting aroma, wheat flavors, with some sort of artificial-tasting berry in there. Some floral, soapiness. Not a bad flavor, but a bit light overall. Light sweet. Not bad, not great, better stuff out there

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of cotton candy, light sweet tarts, and a touch of wheat. It pours a cloudy golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a light quick dose of cotton candy and elderberry. The finish has notes of light wheat, grass, and cereal notes. It’s light bodied with lightly fizzy carbonation. Overall, it’s an unoffensive thirst quencher.
