COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle-I was not impressed. I thought the beer lacked flavor. It tasted a bit watered down and lost its head quick. in fact when poured, it has no head? oh well.

Cloudy yellow body with a few splashes of sun and copper. Head is very small, white and gone in no time. Smell is fragrant citrus leaves, cotton, butter, sugar and also of yeast. Smells almost like a bag of kettle popped corn. Taste is sweet and bright and could almost be mistaken as a belgian double. The clarity of the flavors are excellent allowing my taste buds to harvest curaco, lemon and lime zest, bubble gum flavored sugars, clove, yeast and alcohol. Taste finishes with a grapefruit-like, dry hop ending. Very good and certainly a top favorite of this style. Given to me by my great friend jbg9348.

Pours a hazy pastel yellow-orange body with a moderate white head. Aroma is mostly fruit accented yeastiness - mild citrus and maybe banana - with a bizarre sort of sour undercurrent that I can only describe as stale elementary school student vomit. This sounds harsh, but its the best thing I could come up with to describe what is in actual fact not that bad. Just a bit of a... wheaty? bite in the background. Pleasant medium-thick palate. Flavour is refreshing and restrained yet still subtly complex. Otherwise sweet profile is balanced by the bitterness with a wheaty bite to it. Finish vaguely reminds me of some of the Unibroue products. Thanks for this bottle Obisbeer.

Pours light orange with creamy tan head. Nose is of light banana, yeast and citrus. Nice balance of wheaty bitterness and sweet malt. Smooth finish. If my memory serves me well, it seems as if the flavor changed when they switched the name from Solsun to Oberon. The Solsun was absolutely incredible.

Creamy, yeasty, banana, and light spice. Creamy mouthfeel with citrus, vanilla and banana flavors. Finish is long enough to make this a great summer session beer!

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2004 #200 for me. Pours hazy yellow with lots of floating yeast; pretty much no head after the fizz from the pour goes away in a few seconds. Aroma is very wheaty and citrusy; nothing too out-of-the-ordinary. But the flavor is just plain unusual; awesome hit of citrus fruitiness, but itís not as sharp as the typical lemony citrus flavor; itís more mellow; sort of a more "closed up" flavor than a typical wheat, almost "musky" you might say; touch of banana/clove, vaguely reminiscent of a Belgian, and a slight vanilla/cream taste. Mouthfeel is awesomely full and thick for the style. This is a very cool and unusual beer. I was a bit taken aback from the first sip. Really top-notch wheat beer, and I donít really like wheat beers; probably my favorite thus far.

Pours orange with a creamy white head. Taste is creamy and smooth as well. Citrus taste throughout. Very interesting and distinct from any beer I have ever had. Great stuff.

Pour is a beautiful orange with a foamy white head that quickly dissapears. Appealing aroma and a great flavor. One of my favorite wheats, easily.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2005 I was surprized to find out this was a wheat ale, the label not giving away any of the ingredients. This has a righteous hopped aroma with a thick red/tan head, a pleasant bitterness followed by a citric aftertaste. No alcohol flavor, just solid refreshment.

wierdly opaque with a fresh-squeezed orange juice-like color...citrus (grapefruit & tangerine) with heavy wheatiness in the aroma...wheaty yeast & citrus flavors with somewhat of a bitter finish.
