I had heard horrific things from a friend about this so I was going into it with very low expectations. (We're stout/porter/bock guys) I found this to be quite pleasing. Fairly light. I noticed a strong orange presence, something I discovered that added great taste. Some spice remnants as well. Very cloudy yellow appearance. Quite happy!

smoosh (535) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Draft: bright yellow with a fizzy white head. This brew reminds me of some of the classic German wheat beers. Lots of banana and spice. I enjoyed it.

BBB63 (5750) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2003
On tap: Hazy amber/copper hue with very good off-white head and good lace. Aroma hinted of banana, spice, lemon, pineapple, earthy yeast esters. The taste started malty and citric twangy, then followed with a shot of spice and lively hops. well balanced. The mouthfeel was creamy and smooth. A well done brew and according to Larry Bell, this is an experimental wheat/weizen, not a witbier.

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2004
This is everything that Oberon should be. Refreshing beer with feet planted both in American wheat and Belgian white soils. A hint of of citrus and clove spiciness ... perhaps a tad of coriander. This beer is irrisistable delicious.

jsquire (3345) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2003
On tap at the Town Pump in Detroit before the Motor City Bowl (which Northwestern lost after a very good game). Impenatrable cloudy orange juice-like yellow color with no head and a very spicy wit nose. Upfront banana clove flavors with a sweet grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Very thick, full mouthfeel. Nice wit.

temporrari (380) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2004 Had this on tap at the bar. Made it difficult to judge aroma as it was served quite cold. Cloudy yellow color with a thick and long lasting white head. Flavor was not outstanding but pleasant. Was served with an orange slice. This is a pretty good brew. Could drink it all night.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2003
(Draught) Pours a hazy maze color with a creamy white head. This is a very sweet beer with flavors of citrus, bananas, and cream.

TAR (2410) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Draft: Opaque banana. Creamy, rocky white head. Sharply citric and yeasty on the nose with bananas and cream notes, noble hops, clove, and sour apples. Pepper, herb, and peach undertones. Soft, spongy carbonation. Predominantly cirtsuy at the start, followed by heaps of bananas and cream, and soft pale malts. Lightly peppery throughout with fresh green hop notes. Dry and tingly toward the finish with persistent yeast notes and herbal, leafy hops. Loaded with yeast and fresh hops. Quite the change of pace.

I was suprised to see that this was the seasonal Bells offering at my local restaurant for good beer. Fairly light (not quite whitish) with a substantial head and fruity aroma. The first sip hits you that sweet citrusy flvor associated wtih wits and the use of weiss yeasts. Teh flavors blended between orange zest and banana. A very tasty beer that well exceeded my expectations and initial bias created by some other reviews
