This is my #1 favorite all-around, hot-afternoon-have-a-beer-and-relax beer. Summer just isnít summer without Oberon. Whenever we go back to Kalamazoo to visit family, we have to bring at least a case home with us. Recently I have had to bring more, as my co-workers are now addicted too!

A bit of trivia. This beer used to be called Solsun, however another brewer claimed either the name or label (i forget which) was a rip off of theirs. So larry changed its name to Oberon after the king of the faries in a midsummer nights dream, Way to sock it to íem! I was lucky enough to get my hands on a old Solsun bottle for my collection, it was a happy day.

this is the best american version of a wheat beer that iíve tried (so far--no doubt i have many more to try)
it really isnít comparable to a german hefe, but it is so much better than all of the blander american versions....great mouthful of flavor. a bit sweet but has just the right hop balance to offset the sweetness.

Nope sorry, nothing special -- Iíll stick with a nice Franziskaner or Hacker-Pschorr.

Tastes just like a great homebrew. Distinguising factor is the aroma.

A great summer beer. Tangy and a bit of citrus flavor. Not the best Bellís product, but certainly worth trying.

Probably the only beer from the k-zoo brewing company that i actually like. It had a flavor all its own.

Many say this is the worst of the Kazoo. line. If thats the case, they are brewing some of the best beer in the world.
