UPDATED: MAY 9, 2003 Bright orange-yellowish color with small suspended yeast particles floating around, has a small white head that doesn't last, light citrus aroma, light bready, malty flavors it leaves a flowery aftertaste.It has a very creamy and full mouthfeel, not as spicy and fruity as I remember, still very enjoyable and refreshing.

TAR (2503) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2006 Pours with a typical chalky and chunky foam which is dense and creamy. Aroma is straight yeast, hints of butter, citrus, marshmallow, and whispers of coriander. Flavors are again, yeasty, with an array of oaty goodness that coats the mouth. This has drastically improved since they’ve acquired their new brewing system and rigorous QC. Very good considering the dull style.

a decent wheat beer. good for the summer months. a little too much ’spice’ for me.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 30, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 Pours with a medium size head that slowly fades away. Huge unique aroma, that has several different light fruits in it. Slightly acidic/spicy taste. I drank it at cellar temp, but I can tell this would be a good beer to have in the cooler on a hot day. Thanks PsychProf!

Not as much head as a lot of a head as I was expecting, but it does have a nice dark apricot color. The first aroma and flavor that you pick up is apricot. A good bit of it. That’s followed by the expected wheaty and malty flavors that start to dominate towards the middle of the glass. Some citric crispness is present througout. Very little bitterness or hop characteristics are present. This is an awesome wheat beer. Just so everyone knows, Hennes is a great big bastard. He gives me this stuff (and an Expedition Stout) and expects me not to get jealous of him being able to have easy access to this stuff.

This pours from the conditioned bottle (be sure to decant while pouring) a hazy pale honey. The large creamy white head has good lacing and is mostly lasting. The nose softens quickly, but is initially toasted cereal, flowers, citrus, fruit (apple, pear, and date) and earth. The flowery flavor is very balanced with a decent finish. The palate is light, dry and lively, and finishes clean. Refreshing.

Very nice aroma, malty, with a decent flavor. A bit of bitterness balances out the hint of spice. Citrus aroma.

Not a huge fan of this beer. It’s a decent wheat beer with nice citrus and wheat tones to it, but it doesn’t live up the hype I get for it. I go to school and everyone says this is the best beer ever. Stick with Arcadia’s Witsun.

Ah yes, the arrival of Oberon means summer is right around the corner. An excellent wheat beer, with hints of citurs flavor and hops. a great summer brew

Oberon...Aproved..... Update 2002 Version: Best looking beer ever with its juicy gold greatness. citrus aroma. More hops and more coriander then last years version. My rating is slightly lower as i’ve matured but still and excellent beer
