A blog for dum ideas that are too long to fit on my Facebook status

Beer #25 – Magic Hat Elder Betty

Elder Betty, Magic Hat Brewing CompanyVermont, United States of A
Hefeweizen,  5.5%ABV

Aroma: Hints of lemon, grapefruit and banana.  Nice fruity aroma but not too intense.

Appearance: Pours a hazy gold, very small white head (could’ve been a glassware issue).

Flavor: Fruity up front, banana with a fairly strong wheat and tart/hop finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium light body, nice carbonation.

Overall: Nice aroma, fairly tart and bitter flavors for a wheat beer, which was somewhat unexpected.  Not sure I really dig this as a summer style.  The flavor is just a little hard to get used to and too intense for a summer beer.
