Sampled at MBG 2013 Summer Festival. Nice aroma, very oaky, light bourbon, vanilla, and citrus fruit. Taste is a bit odd but not bad. Lots of oak and vanilla definitely overpower the base beer. Light bourbon, light citrus fruit. Better than oberon but it would definitely be hard to finish a pint of this.

Tap. Oberon is a pretty solid beer to begin with, now barrel age and it comes out even better. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quite interesting blend of vanilla, caramel, and oak with strong citrus and slightly tart notes. Overall good, but not my favorite barrel aged beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap: The aroma consists of fruit, citrus, bourbon, and vanilla. It’s a hazy amber with a two finger white head that has good retention and lacing. The flavor starts with fruit and citrus. The finish has light-moderate bourbon and vanilla. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, better than I expected.

On tap at Ashley’s Ann Arbor. Pours a clear amber with a white head. Light, nondeScript fruity bourbon aroma. Flavor of bready bourbon, wheat, and fruits. A little muddled, but enjoyable.

Draft to taster at Eccentric Cafe. Looks solid; a transparent light golden orange with white lacing. Smells solid; like Oberon with a heavy but pleasant bourbon influence. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Draft @ Eccentric Café. Pours a cloudy light brown, minimal head. Big aroma of booze and wood. Taste is oaky, bourbon, and fruit. Good stuff.

On tap at Bells 7/11/13... Aromas of white wine, light fruit and a little woodsy earthy tones. The flavor of alcohol mostly dominates this, with notes of apple and pear. Rather dry finish. Very good... I was surprised this was as good as it is.

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Note that the board said between 6% and 7% abv, that showed in the taste as it had far less chemical taste to it. Orangeish brown pour with no head to speak of. Scotchy sour aroma, like bourbon aged sour/wild ale. Light wheaty beer that’s slightly bitter and mixed with rich, buttery bourbon. Fresh rind-y orange, raisin, and bourbon tastes. Effervescent whiskey flavor on finish. Average carbonation with slightly sour but clean finish. I prefer this version of Oberon, as it tastes little like Oberon.
