4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color poured a super pale, hazy light yellow, and had a very tight leveled out type of lacing just above the white head. Smells of zesty lemon and some spice, very clean and crispy. Taste is much like Belgian witbeir, very spritzy, lemon is sharply toned with a spicyness mixed in that blended well. It's mostly lemony then anything, imagine a Sprite or 7up with three times the lemon and add some wheat and yeast and wham-o, you've got this Oberon. I've had it in the bottle before, but on tap is so much more yeasty fresh then from the bottle. Super drinkable and highly recommended for quenching thirst on warm to hot days in summer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very nice aroma of lemon, sweet grain, and a little clove. Flavor is dominated by a well balanced grain sweetness with some good hop bitterness backbone. Finishes again a little fruity. Very good summer brew.

Cloudy golden with small white head. Aroma is mild sweet, wheat, hint of cloves. Taste is too sweet wheat, hint of lemon. Light/medium body.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like a Belgian Wit, deep honey colored with thin white head. Aroma is yeasty with heavy wheat malt presence. Very crisp on the palate which reminds me of a belgian style. Flavor is mediocre. A somewhat generic bland flavor to it that reminds me of Blue Moon's white. Nothing deeply characteristic standing out. Finishes a little bitter and stale.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I'm glad to find that this is a wheat ale, because that's what I suspected (it wasn't listed as such), so I guess I'm getting better at this tasting thing. Light golden with the look you'd expect from an American wheat. It's smooth with a grainy flavor and a bare citric edge. Good.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2007 Cloudy deep yellow. Fizzy head that doesnít last long. Aroma is of haircare products such as hairspray. Light wheatiness. Not my favorite Bellís but worth trying.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 3/20
Hazy straw color with minimal head retention of the white bubbles. Overwhelming diacetyl in this bottle!!!! I can't smell the wheat malt in this whatsoever. I can't smell or taste anything in this but butter. I'll re rate this at a later date with a new bottle.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 Cloudy golden color with no head, surprising in a wheat beer. Wheat and yeast flavors are only moderate, slight fruit, surprisingly hoppy bitter bite, which I really like. Not a very wheaty wheat beer, not a great beer over all, but pleasant enough. // Rerated from a mini-keg. Much better head, much better appearance than the bottle. Much more intense wheat and lemon citrus. Better mouth as well. Significantly better overall.

I'm not a fan of wheat beers but this one is OK for my taste. Wheat is not overstated as some. Very nice hops bite. Pleasant aftertaste. Beautiful light straw color. Will buy again
