Elder Betty Elderberry Weiss

Today I'm drinking Elder Betty Elderberry Weiss brewed by Magic Hat Brewing Company in South Burlington, Vermont. This is their new Summer Seasonal. I'm trying to figure our exactly what the label art is supposed to represent. Looks like a crazy kind of tree with some purple fantasy monster trying to hide behind it.

Berry and wheat aroma, but not that strong. Flavors are similar with those berries adding both sweet and tartness on your palate. The wheat is noticeable texturally as well. Fruity beyond the berries, too. If you use your imagination, you will taste some nuances of grape bubble gum. But all of the flavors are very soft and work well together. There is a bit of an acidic quality toward the end as well. Good carbonation and refreshing. Nice aftertaste. Check it out.
