Very hazy; pale yellow. Creamy and soft, yet still crisp somehow. Clean malts, with notes of bread and light grains. Nips of lemon above and earthy yeast below. Not very exciting, but well made and refreshing.

Oberon has light floral aroma. The color is a light cloudy golden. The head is creamy and white with good retention. There are some fruity undertones but overall the beer is quite mild.

Bottle. I ordered this beer at three different bars that all claimed to have it but did not for whatever reason. I didn’t even want it that badly but after getting shut down like I did I HAD to get it. Cloudy golden color with a white head. Wheaty, with some clove and some pear. A bit yeasty, mild citrus. Medium creamy body, refreshing. Thank God, finally an American Wheat worth drinking.

This one is a little different than most wheat beers that I’ve had. The beer has alot of the fruity tones you would expect from a wheat beer, but also has some very mellow malt and hop tones worked in there as well.

Thick yellow/orange with a floral nose. Nice honey and dried fruit tones with somewhat of a hoppy finish.t

Not bad, not bad. Good cloudy golden orange colour (or is that just the label making me want it to be orange?). Good and fruity, much better than many of the "summer" beers that arrive in June. It is more complex than simply citrus and spice, there is some nice malty notes that make it heavier than most wheat beers. Another great Bells entry.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - SEP 27, 2005
Slight hazy golden blond ale with very small white head. Aroma is honeyish, milkbeardy with a refreshing accent of hops and flowers. The taste is smooth and has nice touches of cake dough, dried white raisins, this sounds maibe strange but I have impressions of stuffed and slight caramelized leeks. It has also a dash of Highland Park nut bread (hazelnuts), dried stone fruits, candy cookies, Drambuie and oatmeal. A slight hoppyness gives this beer a nice lift-up in the finish.

Colour changes from clear gold to fully hazy orange, depending on the level of the bottle; whitish irregular head, fast gone. American hops, good ones, even when not at I²PA levels, some dry cookie sweetness, but in perfect balance. Lytchee aroma, but not only sweet, with a whisky touch. Taste : dry hops sacks, filled with Christmas-dried oranges, green sultanas and some steamed and cloved onions. Medium bodied, yeast-filled MF. Even once KNOWING it, I just can’t get ANY wheat out of this, unless it would be the looks. Blind it would be a pure guess. How much wheat is malted in Belgium, BTW?

Bottle. Batch ID #7012. Packaged on: August 9, 2005. Hazy straw pour with a thin off-white head. Crisp, wheaty, white bread aroma with some lemon and a bit of spice. Not a whole lot going on taste-wise. Wheaty and lemony, just subdued. The slightest hint of corn and white bread. Crisp. On the watery side. Plenty of better American wheats out there. This one’s just forgettable.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 Pours cloudy yellow with thick white head. Aroma is banana, pine and citrus. Flavor is very fruity, bananas, oranges, grapefruit, and some apple. Finishes bitter and dry. Excelent summer beer.
