A Wheat Ale brewed with American Wheat and a proprietary blend of Hefe and classic Belgian-style yeasts. A refreshing winter alternative created from the subtle fusion of two classic flavors.

Very cloudy pale yellow. big banana nose. Creamy with soft carbonation. Very simple with overripe banana dominating. Not bad though with a slight hint of cloves and spice.

Grabbed a growler of this from the Liquor barn and sat down to a happy evening. Hazy golden color with a generous white head. Aromas are floral and sweet. Flavor is smooth with sweet yeasty tones and again floral. Looses some points in the palate because I felt that it was slightly over carbonated. A wonderful brew none the less and I feel fortunate to havr tried it.

Wheat beers are summer beers. The big surprise is that this is a wheat beer on testosterone. Every classic aspect of a wheat is a bit exagerated in this beer. It is very cloudy with s short finely laced head. The beer is a dark straw color with a strong lemony aroma. The palate is adequately short of sweet with citrus overtones and a fairly strong hop follow through. Wheats are not my favorite, but this one holds its own.

Draft/ First impression is a pleasant lemony aroma. Pours a nice cloudy yellow under thin but long-lived white head. Malts are very light, nice wheat complement.is subdued for the style. A little grassy (and a tad gassy), dry, with a tingle of bitterness. The citrus taste remains prominent, though toward the end more estery fruitiness and spiciness make an appearance. Not overwhelmingly "Belgian,", but very drinkable, like a kölsch or even a lawnmower beer.
I had this at the little sports bar in Marshall Field's in downtown Chicago, "InField's," and found it a pleasant surprise. Prices are interesting: $3.50 for 24 oz Gooses, $4.50 for micros on tap (Summit, Bell's, Sierra Nevada), and $5.50 for imports (just Guiness and Heineken). The BMC's are only in bottles. Not a bad deal.

Homebottled version by Hopsrus: Beer pours cloudy golden with a white head that rapidly dissipates. There is lively carbonation with this one. Aroma is compelling and correct for the style with orange peel and coriander notes. Flavor is good too with the initial flavor being mouth filling orange peel and the finish nicely dry and bitter. Good beer. Thanks to Hopsrus for the opportunity to rate this one.

Pours out a hazy,pale orange hue, with a proud, puffy snow-white cap. Aroma is softly spicy and citric. Taste: smooth and mellow, with flavors of banana, bubblegum, and orange unfolding with little coriander like bits of spice on the plate. Light bodied, with a sweet finish, very tasty and refreshing. Designed as a cross between a weizen and a wit, to suit those who crave such a thing away from the summertime, I think this one works. I was skeptical at first, to see Bell's release a winter brew so different from the stouts and the Two Hearted, but they've crafted something nice here. On tap.

Hazy golden color. Smells fruity. The flavor has a raspberry-like taste which seems out of place. A little thinner that the appearance suggests.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2004 Light yellow and hazy. Aroma is fruity and very yeasty. Moderately spiced, with clove and a light dose of coriander. Some lemon flavors and candi sweetness. Tangy mouthfeel. Good witbier!

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.
