This is a beer that has gone through too many changes. When Oberon was Solsun it was better. Last year it was better. The citrus flavor was more apparent and have more sediment. Seems like this beer was dumbed down this year. Too bad. This was one of Bell's best beers.

MABR-Cloudy light amber color,small white head that faded fast.Wheaty citrus aroma with a light spice character to it.The taste was better then i thought it would be,Wheaty sweet taste with a slight spice and fruity tone with a slight yeasty flavor, the after taste being wheat and citrusy with a nice smooth feel to the brew.This was one fine brew and for the price it can't be beat.

drywallman (325) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2003
A cloudy amber brew with a respectably long lasting head. It had a good wheat nose, and a spicy/twangy hop experience at the end. Just the right amount of carbonation. I recommend it.

BCAR (221) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Summer in a bottle. Beautiful cloudy pale color. citrus nose. Great utilization of wheat and hops produces a truly refreshing ale. Makes me smile when it hits my tongue.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2003 Very smooth. No citrus detected. Occluded and full of particulates. Doesn't taste bad. Doesn't bombard your taste buds either. Had second, didn't impress me anymore than it did the first. An average wheat. I don't know where you are getting yours but mine aren't very good.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2003
Light, crisp, citrus, wheaty nose. Cloudy golden orange in colour with a thin head and visable carbonation. The flavor starts out wheaty and sweet and kind of citrusy ends with hops and moderate bitterness. Overall, Good

radiomgb (2143) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2003
Cloudy orange in colour. Aroma of sugar, slight hops, peaches and some yeast. Flavour started sweet, turning to hops with a medium bitterness. Finishes smooth, creamy and a quick bitterness.
