Bottled. Cloudy orange in colour. Neutral aroma. Some melon, a lot of fizz together with a watery light body and low bitterness makes this a highly disappointing effort from Kalamazoo. Some bubblegum in the finish can't save it.

Oregon Brewer's Fest. It was good to see a brewery like Bell's make it to the fest. Unfortunately the Oberon wasn't as great as some of the other experiences I've had with Bell's brews. Pale golden color. Very lite beer like with some yeast undertones.

Sorry, I found this quite bland. Nothing really happening here. Minimal hops, kind of a mediocre beer.

A straw color with an off white head. The aroma is of faint wheats and light hop. A good wheaty flavor that lingers and a hop that bites at your tongue a little. A solid and refreshing american wheat.

A good American wheat, possibly one of the best. Readily available in the summer months.

Light gold color. Medium head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. A medium bodied American Wheat ale. Malts are fruity and slightly sweet. Hops are fairly floral. Well balanced. Very nice wheat beer. Light and refreshing. Flavorful wheat beer. Very nice. Mild tasting yet, so well constructed wheat beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Clear light yellow, large white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus. I agree with DrNate. This was a little watery and slightly too bitter. A touch of citrus zing in the flavor. Pretty good.

A little too wheaty for me. Very good beer if you like the wheat taste. The label is very attractive.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
MIBG Fest: Golden-yellow colour with a tight white head. Aroma and fresh and floral/spicey and slightly soapy, but not unpleasantly so. Mouthfeel is crisp and slightly creamy. Flavour is moderately malty and spicey, and it is a good dry hoppy finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light wheat aroma, with nice hint of citrus. Cloudy pale amber with small foamy off-white head. Medium watery body and medium carb. OK wheat beer, but more bitter than wheaty. Still citrusy and refreshing.
