Hazed golden orange body with a lasting pocked white head. Lemon banana and yeast nose. Sweet thick flavor that is like buttered apples and lemon cream pies. Plainly said it is refreshing light goodness. Really fills in the rough spots after sweating my balls off all day. A touch of vanilla in the finish with the yeasty tang.

Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is nice and fruity and there are some telltale hops in there. Flavor is watery and way to sweet. Some citrus and hops make it into the flavor as well but nothing overpowers the other. Could be better.

3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Probably the best session beer Iíve had. Had the chance to be in Bloomington, IN the weekend the bars and stores got their first batches of the summer. Draft was a great opaque gold, looked good even in a cheap plastic cup. Bottle was cloudier, with noticable sediment. Both had a slight aroma. Flavor was smooth and hoppy. The taste wasnít as sweet as some people describe, much less than a macro-wheat, but more noticable than more complex wheat beers.

Pours a ruddy yellow with a small head. Lightly fruity nose and strong german malt. There is a strong presence of german malt (munich I think) in the flavor, along with a nice wheatiness. A touch of hops.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours hazy with a yellow color and a small head. Aromas of fruit and bread. Flavors of wheat, grapefruit and a slight hint of hoppy bitterness. Quite refreshing, not overdone with coriander or such like many other summer beers. Also a bit heavier than the typical summer wheat.

Bottle. Yellow/ orange color with a nice lasting head. Flavors of citrus and wheat. Not the same beer Iíve had in the past. A little watered down. Still a good beer. Could be better.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a small head. Subtle citris aroma. A very smooth blend of citris and wheat tastes. The beer as a whole is subtle and drimkable. Was not blown away by any stretch.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with a firm white head. The aroma is obviously wheaty with subtle citrus notes and assertive enough. The flavors are well balanced: wheat, slightly sugary malts, subtly tangy hops. Oberon finishes on a woody, semi-sweet lemon note. It goes beyond just being a thirst quencher.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2006 almost no aroma at all. extremely flavorful for an american wheat. very good. a little bitterness. reddish, clear. boy my notes for that one sucked, eh. RERATE. what the fuck was i talking about with my first rating? itís not clear, itís a wheat and itís totally opaque orange. itís a beautiful beer, though the head was uglyish. 2 fingers or so worth. my friend got a quarter barrel of this. so good. orange (blasphemy) actually complemented it quite well.

Bottle, batch 7326. Pours a cloudy yellow straw with a moderate creamy off-white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, and some spicy hops. The bananas come though slightly in the taste, as the wheat is dominant, hops make a short appearance, and has a sweet, biscuity finish. I picked up some citrus somewhere in there as well. Pretty good American wheat.
