2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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...
Hazy pour. Flat aroma of fruit. The berry flavor is moderate which is just perfect. Not overpowering, and not really very sweet. Unlike many fruit based brews this does not get sickening tasting after just one. Quite good. Bottle. Dacrza (1067) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2017
DATE: July 22, 2017... OCCASION: having bowled with the Morgans, we set our sights on dinner...GLASSWARE: Weihenstephan weizen... pours a truly golden body with thick, clustering bubbles that form a frothy, clumpy white head that would make sea foam envious... wafting aroma of elder berry, tart raspberry, banana, clove, perfume esters, and light biscuit malts... not off-putting... first sip is effervescent, medium-bodied, fizzy and creamy enough to be a fulfilling sip in its own right...reasonable for a wheat ale, without much to detract from its path... berry is overpowered by caramel and biscuit--not what I expected, or should have... flowers and bubblegum are also present... the profile is refreshing but not a berry weisse in some respects...honestly, this works in some weird way, but I do not find it ultimately a beer I’d come back...though it reminds me of our time in Love Ladies with the Blancos, and that is worth something...

Hazy to cloudy golden color with a smaller, but stable nearly white head. Light fruity aroma, akin to a blueberry pop tart. Sweet flavors, with light berries, including gooseberries and blackberries. A fruity style beer that does not keep my interest. 5/12

Kroger bottle. Clear gold. Aroma of grass, hint of honey, hint of bitter fruit. Flavor is grass, bitter berry, honey, bread. Boring. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours a hazy dark golden yellow color. Aromas of malts, a touch of honey. Flavor is the same as the nose, nice malt taste with honey like sweetness. Smooth hop finish, medium body with a quick aftertaste.

Elder Betty is my favorite fruit beer I’ve ever had. It’s not like other fruit beers, where you think you’re just drinking cider; there’s enough of an aftertaste that reminds you that it’s beer to know it isn’t cider, and it’s not overpowering with one fruit. I love it. hman43 (1885) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2015
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. aumentm (750) - North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2015
Put us to bed. This beer is going to bring it. It has a fruit taste and darker malty taste. mstrcrwly (1000) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2015

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.
