Simply put, in my opinion this is one of the best beers in the world, probably Top 10. Very elegant and smooth, great, light taste and near lack of aftertaste. It seems a little stronger than 6% ABV.

hazy appearance with quickly diminishing head. Smells of sweet bread, lemon twist and tastes light, soft, but a little sticky. decent.

Thanks to Pailhead for this beer.

Poured a cloudy golden with a small fizzy off-white head. Sweet aroma of clove, a touch of banana, caramel, and lemon. Taste is light citrus, grass, a bit of sugary sweetness and lots of dry toffee. Reasonably full body with good carbonation for the style. Goes down very well for the style, even though itís still a style that fails to impress me.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with atpayne (thanks!). Poured a medium to deep and cloudy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Some floaters. Aromas of wheat, light clove and a little fruity. Tastes of stronger wheat, citrus, and light spices.

Oberon is exactly what i want when i crave a wheat. good beer to have in the fridge when the craving hits. Great balance. the head developes fast and dies quickly. very easy to drink

As long as you donít get the bottom of a keg, this is a keeper. I love Oberon in bottles and on tap. Though I miss my Moose Drool and Fat Tire back home in Montana, I love that I can get Bellís in Indiana and Illinois. If you like wheat beers at all, go for this one.

Bottle, batch 6998. Poured a hazy yellow/amber with a small off white head which quickley diminished. Aroma, picked up a lot of grain with a orangish citrus hop. This was a sweet, lightly orange hopped beer with a lot of grain overtones. Finish was clean mostly sweet with a very light hop bitterness. This is an excellent example of a great summer ale.

Oberon is a great wheat ale all summer long. It provides a template for other American wheats to work from as it is aromatic and richly flavored. Increasingly yeasty in finish as a nod to German wheats.

Pours a dark orange color with a white head that tends to diminsih quickly. Flavor is tart with sweet accents and some apricot flavor. what can I say there is almost no beer better suited for a warm summer afternoon.
