Pours a hazy yellow with a good sized white head. Smells and tastes like wheat. This is a nice summer beer.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 Bottle. Smells of sweet dough and orange. Hazy yellow. Little head. Nicely carbonated. Tastes of wheat and citrus flavors. Finish is bitter and a bit dry. An ok american wheat.

Hazy blonde color with a thin white head. Aroma and flavor of wheat and citrus (lime I think). Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Pretty good for a wheat beer ! Thanks to csbosox for sending this my way.

decided to pick up a few of these once they were freshly brewed...cloudy orange appearance with big head....aroma is of citrus hops, as was the flavor (lemon is distinct)...palate was a tad harsh; a nice summer beer

Bottled: Pleasant aroma, with a slightly spicy citrus scent. Lemony flavor with a very good and smooth wheat beer taste. Unlike Blue Moon, this hides its 6% alcohol content well, possibly due to the lemony flavor rather than more of an orange flavor. Overall, wonderful summer beer, very refreshing.

Draught: Faint citrus/meal scent. Cloudy golden color. Small white head. No lacing. Lemony, with good balance of hops and malts. Rather have a Prima Pils or Farmhous Summer. Still, not bad for a warm day.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2011 What a treat. Just a great wheat beer with a hint of fruit flavor. Could taste the freshness on this first warm day of spring. More orange and camel over the years.

This is my 6th Oberon so far today. I had one on the way back from the liquor store, after work, three more playing 12 holes of disc golf, before it got dark. (It was 80° today) I had #5 with dinner. #6 is this one. 12 oz bottle. 50.8° and sered in a 22oz wiezen glass. Pours about 3/4 of the way up the glass. Hazy golden color with a 3/4" rocky white head. The beer is so hazy that you can’t see, at all, through the beer. There is a smal white ring of yeast along the bottom of the bottle, and I’m sure in the glass. The head dies and spots the glass. The aroma is wheat and yeast with citrus/lemon notes. The first one I had today had an aroma that reminded me of euro pilsners, must be the Saaz hops. The taste is tart wheat, yeast, lemon, malt, and hints of banana? The body is full for a wheat, in fact, it is full for most beers. The aftertaste is yeast, lemon, and refreshing wheat. This does remind me of their winter wheat with the big body for a wheat and the strong yeast profile. Tasty beer. The flavor seems to change a bit as you drink it.This, it’s cousin winter wheat, , along with Gumballhead, are my favorite wheat beers.

Very fresh, would be okay on a hot summer day but lacks the zesty lemony qualities I’m used to in a wheat beer. Hides the 6% well. The commercial description says "wheat malt", and that’s a good way to put it in that unlike the typical yeast-at-the-bottom variety this beer also has a strong malt presence.

This would be a great summer beer. Sadly it was a Toronto winter day that I sampled it, so the potential refreshingness was slightly lost on me. Either way though, I liked it. Hazy golden brown with a thin head. Malty nose initially then great lemony freshness and some cloves and spice. Flavours follow through and then a nice slightly malty hop finish. Solid.
