Being from Kalamazoo, Oberon is taken to an obsession. Pours yellow-orange, cloudy. Occasionally some sediment. Spicy, but not as hopped up as other wheats Iíve had, and not as much as I would like. Fruit/citrus finish is enjoyable. Overall good, but needs to be re-examined to keep up with local competition in the SW Michigan area.

Pours a nice yellow-orange color with a cloudy unfiltered body. Spice and citrus taste and aroma. A sweet finish with less hops than I would have expected.

A large head was poured but it was diminishing. An unfiltered beer with a lot of particles. The flavor was sweet and the carbonation was soft.

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.

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.
