3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy with lots of yeast floating in a medium golden, honey colored beer with an white head that is retained. Aroma is quite sweet with expected wheat aroma, but not the banana and clove I look for. Flavor is quite tasty and mouthfeel is creamy in a good way. One of the really good summer beers.

Alright.. this is definitely not the best bells that Iíve had. By far the most famous of their brews, it is an easy to drink beer. Perhaps that is why it has such mass appeal. There isnít much aroma to oberon, thus my low score in that category. It does have a decent body, and is pleasant to drink. I just didnít pick up on any subtle flavorings, other than a dab of citrus. Then again, maybe I am just not a fan of american wheat beers...

This beer means summer to me. Itís what I look forward to when I take my trips up north (MI) where itís abudantly on tap. It offers just enough spice with the wheat flavors and a good finish.

This was pretty good, but I am not a huge fan of wheat beers. Spicy in flavor but the finish was a little wierd and not that much to my liking. However, donít let me be the judge, try it anyways.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2004 on tap at some bar at illinois state university. itís just a pleasant miller, in my opinion. easy to drink, pleasant bitterness. a bit dry, keeps you to drink it. a hint of spice, banana. not bad! UPDATE 7/12/04: uprated aroma +1 and overall +1, duvel tulip glass; refreshing. perhaps it's the atmosphere.

Very nice wheat beer. Looks great in the glass with a white head and a somewhat cloudy yellow-orange color. Somewhat spicy, citrus wheat aroma. Flavor is distinct wheat with citrus undertones. Good mouthfeel.

Beautiful cloudy haze, miss the days when the sediment would settle to the bottom. bitter taste and and perfect carbonation add to the ambience of the perfect summer brew.

Pours cloudy orange with a snow white head. Taste is citrus and spices (celery was my first impression but its more complex than just that). Slightly sour but not disgustingly so. Some bitterness in the finish. A different wheat for sure. Very refreshing.

Bottle pours a hazy pale yellow, with a large rocky white head, light carbonation, and with attractive lacing. † Wheat malts and lemon zest on the nose, as well as what I like to refer to as 'dog farts' or 'pond water', typical in many American Wheat beers. † There is also a spicyness to this that I cannot pinpoint. † Up front it is rather wheaty, slightly citrusy, and again with that odd spice. † That spice isn't far off from perfumed hairspray. † While not bad, it doesn't really add to this beer. † Finishes with a somewhat medicinal flavor. † Body & mouthfeel seem alright, but the aroma and strange flavor throw me off. † Thanks goes out to MarkR for the trade!
