3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours cloudy yellow with a nice creamy white head, some retention and lacing. gentle citrus-grapefruit and crackling wheat, lean and fresh pale cereals, yellow skinned fruitiness, spicy peppercorns, lemon peel, dry wheatiness, hint of melons and pineapple, sulfur traces. average carboantion, light body - just a tad watery, dry and almost crisp and astringent herbal-grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. enjoyed!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE REVIEWED: August 10, 2014... GLASSWARE: Rare Vos shaker... OCCASION: Shark Week 2014 kicks off...with another mockumentary?!...APPEARANCE: hazy to the point of opaqueness; burnt yellow body; simple white head; little effervescence... AROMA: some pitchy yeast and bubblegum is planted in a malty base; gentle hops round out the profile ... PALATE: light body, slightly active; soft from tart to finish, barely suggesting an ale in the wheat; highly drinkable... TASTE: bright,slightly sou lemon and light malts; some pepper and clove arrive late;remarkably flavorful for a refresher...OVERALL: much better than Shark of Darkness, much to my disappointment of the latter; Oberon is crisp, remarkably balanced, and on par with Victory’s Whirlwind--a worthy case mate for Bell’s Two Hearted...

Exactly like the description by the brewery- spicy hop profile with some fruitiness, mostly bitter orange. Wheaty/yeasty. Decent, especially in the heat.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Tilted Kilt Indianapolis. Pours a fairly clear, golden yellow with a thin, near white head that coats the glass. Aroma is slight traditional hops, and a bit of grain. Taste is balanced. Mild wheat flavours with a very balanced hop flavour. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Pretty clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall not really my thing. Faint aroma with a mild wheat taste.

Oberon means summer. This beer is best enjoyed on a hot summer day. Thanks to the brewers at Bells for bringing summer in a glass.
