Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw color, with very little head. Not much going on in the nose - a bit of grain, and some tart yeast notes. The flavor leads with a tang (yeast, and a bit of citrus), and gives rise to some breadiness. Has almost a sourdough character to it - tart, and oddly refreshing. Pretty good for a lawnmower-type beer. Nice astringency on the palate, making it quite drinkable.
Can. Pours a hazy light golden color with small white head. Aroma of lemon and wheat. Slightly tart with a bit of sour citrus. Very light. Subtle, not the extremely puckering tartness you get with others in the style. GarrettB (1694) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 10, 2018
March 20th, 2015 - The Oarsman Ale is an odd duck, with all kinds of curious and head-cocking eccentricity. The aroma is both buttery and wheat, but there is also a sheen of steamed artichoke that takes me off guard. And the flavor is tangy and acidic, with a lighter palate and very fine sweetness, with a touch of white grape. The acidity defines the flavor, but the artichoke aroma keeps knocking it out of focus.

12 ounce can poured into a stemmed Chalice. Bright yellow with a small amount of carbonation. Sour tart aroma. Light body with a tart taste of lemon. Clean dry finish. Would probably pair well with Chinese cuisine or spicy Italian. The_Osprey (9721) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2017
September 2017 - Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza. As 'Bell's Oarsman Ale'. Pale yellow, translucent, still, foamy off-white head leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is rubbery, condoms, some grapefruit. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is again rubbery, light citrus, minerally, quite thin and plain. OK. (5-4-5-4-13=3.1) john_hops_kinz (26) - - NOV 2, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Oarsman Ale: This tastes like a slice of American cheese baked onto of a big slice of lemon, except you forgot to take the plastic off.

Apricots and cherries up front and a bit overripe. Alcohol is well hidden. A bit to sweet for my taste.

Sour citrus fruits, grapefruit, bread, grain and cereal malts, zesty lemon, lime. Hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Light bitter. More sour, bitter citrus fruits, yet not too intense, more bread and cereal malts, soft carbonation, light bodied. Decent Berliner Weisse, refreshing and well-balanced.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2017 Can pours a hazy straw color with a huge white head that lingers leaving lots of lace on glass. Aromas of citrus fruit, herbs,and wild flowers.Tastes of tart lemons, seltzer and mildly sweet wheat bread.Light body, abundant carbonation, slick, tongue tingling mouthfeel and a nice tart,lightly salty finish. It is not to tart and very light. This beer is very refreshing and easy to drink on a hot fall afternoon. I like it! higgsbison (275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Interesting session wheat beer. Light with notes of lemon. The sour/tartness makes it unique. Interesting but too light for my taste
