3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Tap (Yogis Bloomington IN) - Huge creamy head on top of the hazy golden colored beer, thin bodied. All the characteristics of a white (wit) wheat beer, citrus nose, a little spicy on the palate. Well balanced for a wheat, finished with lingering wheat taste. Not as big and complex as others in the genre, but a very drinkable brew.

Hazy golden color, and a thin white head. A bit of a fruity aroma, but a stuffy nose is preventing any real comments. Bit of a citrusy taste, and a bit of wheat. Dry finish. Over all, not too bad, but Bells has better.

A beautiful golden/yeasty beer with a nice head. Excellent wheat flavor with a crisp finish. Has a fruity, spicy flavor that is great.

Having moved to Michigan in March, all I heard about was Oberon. When it arrived, I was disappointed. On tap the beer is gold (yellow?) with a cloudy appearance, but really thin mouth feel not the expected chewy feel I get with other good wheats. While the beer is refreshing, I found it lacking the fruity flavors I expect. This is a nice beer, but not a beer I would seek.

I'm starting to get into American Wheats and this beer is a fine example. Very refreshing.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2003 Again, I had to rerate because of the consistant problem that Bell's has with quality. Another infected Oberon. The ration is not almost 1 in 3 beers is bad. Dissappointing.

Tap: Quite appealing hazy gold with rocky white head. Rather mild scents of bread and lemony zest. The taste started wheaty and then moved to more citric and spice flavors. Finish was slightly sour for my taste.
