I bought this because it was billed as a summer beer. It does taste berry-ish, though I'm not sure I've ever tasted a elderberry to know if that's what I'm tasting. If you've, like me, never had an elderberry, it's an interesting new taste.

Like Magic Hat's number nine, it has a unique taste and is light, but kind of lacks a punch I like in beers. It feels light. It's summer, and I wasn't looking for something really heavy, so perhaps it's more me not knowing what I want.
