Typical summer ale, light bodied, light-medium carbonation and a cloudy pale yellow. Pours a one-fingered, white head that settles quickly but leaves some lace. Looking for the wheat and not finding it, this is a pale without the bitter hoppy aftertaste. 12oz bottle $1.75, from Liquor Barn, Lexington, KY.

Very pale. Light summer brew with a lemony hint. Unfortunately, I only have one to taste. I believe the previous entry was correct in the multiple effect. Another enjoyable brew from Bellís brewhouse brought from my brother in the North. Thanks, Lee!

The trick to pure oberon bliss lies in the serial consumption of several bottles of this classic michigan flavor. Cloudy to opaque from the tap, the citrus/malt/yeast combination is perfectly balanced and perfectly drinkable. While not so phenolic as most wheat beers, this wheat/barley blend brings planty of layers of complexity when drank with intention. A sour note buils up and up on the palate, increasing the mouthfeel to a sour, almost acidic level. Desire to quench the sourness leads to copious ingestion of malty citrus ale, until all that is left is the DISTINGUISHABLE intoxication and gut-feel that is characteristic of Larry Bellís Brews.

Had this at the DC/MD/VA/WV/PA gathering. Bottle courtesy of ??. Clouded amber with a small white head. Nose is watery wheat, some lemon, and yeast. Very grainy. Taste is wheaty and grainy with light citrus and a noticeable yeast note. Body is medium and it finishes with light sweetness, some citrus notes and more wheat and yeast. Seemed average to me.

Pours hazy light orange in color. Yeasty light citrus aroma. Very well balanced smooth easy drinking beer. Finishes nice with a slight orange taste. For alot of Michiganders this is their favorite summer brew. Itís even better with an orange or lemon. But I rated without because I donít know the boundaries on that. Very nice wheat overall.

Aroma of sweet malt. Flavor is sweet butter with a slight wheat. Good, a bit different for a wheat.

I would like to thank all of the little people that made it possible for me to enjoy this beer. Wohlfs (Steve) that is you. Thank you. Pours cloudy orangish with a this durable white head. Nice malty aroma with some citrus and yeasty notes. Tastes like light orange soda. A real nice wheat beet weighing in at 6%, nice!

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Pours an orangish/yellow color with a small but lasting head. Faint yeasty, malty scent with a little spice and fruit. Taste suble with some cloves, yeast, very very light banana and a sweet and oh so slightly buttery bitter finish. Buttery, oily mouthfeel. An okay beer, but I find it a little dull. Gumball head makes this beer taste like Miller Lite in my opinion.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2006 Soft, snowy white head and cloudy dark straw-colored body. Surprising aroma of butterscotch, biscuits, nuts, and yeast. Wheaty, butterscotch flavor with a tangy, tangerine quality. Light spiciness and well-integrated hops that are a subtle but substantial component. Long, woody finish. High diacetyl levels make this a highly unusual American wheat beer but it is unique and interesting. Later cleaner samples were much more refreshing and enjoyable.
