Cbuk1013 (243) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2013 On tap at Bells Eccentric Cafe 6-21-13. This doesnít taste much like an Oberon. Tastes more like a cross between a very smooth scotch and white wine. Bourbon and fruit but not a lot of wheat. Very good beer, but definitely not a session beer.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that leaves some lace streaks. Aroma of vanilla, wheat, oak, toffee, bubblegum, and dried apricot. Flavor of vanilla, tea, wheat, lemon, and oak. Light-Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a tea-like mouthfeel. Starts sweet and finishes earthier. Odd but interesting.

Tap. Poured hazy orange copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex vanilla wood and wheat aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bourbon sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. A better version of a soft beer.

Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have wheat malts, bread, orange citrus, light vanilla and wood. The body is very light and watery. Surprising that it is 10 %. Iím not really a fan of this.

DrSilverworm (6306) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Always wanted to try this one... Nice big vanilla whiskey bourbon barrel aroma, but no bite or burn. Works well with the bready, biscuity rich flavors of the wheat wine. A light, orange citrus hop aroma. Clear golden orange color. Smooth, kind of slick texture. Lighter carbonation. Bigger body. Nice long vanilla, lightly spicy bready wheaty rich aftertaste. Moderate sweet taste, light alcohol warmth. Tasty, big complex wheat wine.

tectactoe (1716) - Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Tap: Cloudy, amber body, similar to Oberon (duh) but maybe a bit darker. Foamy, beige head that reduces to a stretchy film quickly. Aroma is fairly light, actually. Mild bourbon, light orange & citrus zest, white pepper, and some strong barrel-induced vanilla in the back. Taste is mostly bourbon and oak, like drinking a liquid bourbon barrel, but not quite as harsh as it sounds. A little timid orange zest from time to time, and some soft wheat in the background, but this is largely barrel. Itís much better than I was expecting, really. Itís like an extremely tame bourbon with some orange peel and wheat notes tossed in.

On draft at Sidetrack. The pour is a golden orange, almost coppery color, with minimum head and lacing. The aroma has a little hops, but a lot of booze. It almost smells like a vodka, or other cheap liquor. The taste is somewhat bland. It's got the wheat, and some malts, but not much more. For smelling like a bottle of booze, there is a lot more to be desired. It doesn't hang around too long, either ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ontbeertaster (2335) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2013
Tap at bells, pours a dark amber, a nice headiness to it, smell was a bourbony woody character, the flavour was fairly strong bourbon booziness and for me didnt really complement the oberon, this may be too light of a beer to barrel age, it was pretty hot, it might be good with a small aging period.

RespertFTW (520) - Michigan, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Draft at Bellís 28th birthday party at Renoís East. clear orange with thin white head. Heavy bourbon flavor adds depth to the standard oberon flavor.
