Staple summer drinking in Michigan. Despite all the great Bellís, this is usually the only one on tap in the Detroit-Metro area. Still, itís what you need on a summer day.

This is an old standby now. Brewed only in the summer, and there is a reson for it... it is a very summer brew! Your bananna/coriander american-style wheat with a kick of citrus. Way to fun... I drink about 3 dozen of these each summer. It is hard to avoid in Michigan.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque buff with little head. Slightly sour aroma with bread yeast and some spiciness. Sweet and bready in flavor. A little spicy, a little caramel, a little citrus. Nice body. Better than Widmers though not my favorite style.

I had this beer from the tap. Slightly unpleasant aroma, but tastes very good. A good mix of tastes, this beer leaves a lemony, malty aftertaste. Iíll have to try it again to get a better picture of it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Being from Kalamazoo, Oberon is taken to an obsession. Pours yellow-orange, cloudy. Occasionally some sediment. Spicy, but not as hopped up as other wheats Iíve had, and not as much as I would like. Fruit/citrus finish is enjoyable. Overall good, but needs to be re-examined to keep up with local competition in the SW Michigan area.

Pours a nice yellow-orange color with a cloudy unfiltered body. Spice and citrus taste and aroma. A sweet finish with less hops than I would have expected.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A large head was poured but it was diminishing. An unfiltered beer with a lot of particles. The flavor was sweet and the carbonation was soft.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Simply put, in my opinion this is one of the best beers in the world, probably Top 10. Very elegant and smooth, great, light taste and near lack of aftertaste. It seems a little stronger than 6% ABV.

hazy appearance with quickly diminishing head. Smells of sweet bread, lemon twist and tastes light, soft, but a little sticky. decent.
