Jamesthebrit's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Jamesthebrit (484) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2013
A: Pours a lighter dandelion color. Pretty good white head. S: Fruity, orange, lemon. Super malty. T: Pretty dry on the palate which is nice. Easy drinking, subtle citrus. Super malty... too malty I think. P: Dry on the palate. Light body. A solid beer here. Easy to drink. Wheat is a little too slight and malt is a little too much but nothing terrible wrong with this beer. I think you’ll be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t like this beer. Also it signifies the arrival of spring! So you can’t hate that.

Oberon is an epic beer! (Bell's house yeast must be the secret ingredient?) All I know, is I have never tasted another beer quite like Oberon. When it releases each year at the end of March - our group drinks nothing else until it runs out in September. Oberon bottles, cans and mini kegs go with us on our boat, at the pool, picnics, hiking, weddings, etc. One of the few beers worthy of a Shakespeare reference.

The description definitely makes it sound hoppy. But I thought it needed more hops to balance it out. Citrus notes. A decent beer if nothing is better is on tap ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from BeerShop.gr, enjoyed at Gunnarsbu. Pours hazy deep golden with a small fast fading white head. Aroma of wheat, spicy hops. Taste is light sweet, soft creamy malts with a light spicy finish.

12oz bottle. Hazy golden orange with a thick white head. Wheat, yeast, citrus, bread, grassy hops. Medium carbonation. Peppery wheat finish. Good stuff.

Very good taste, refreshing with fruity undertones. Served with an orange slice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pleasant looking. Nice lacing, creamy head. Strange aftertaste, but you get used too it. Not my favorite whet, had worse, had better.

on tap at Bridesburg Bottle Shop (which unfortunately just closed down) - cloudy yellow color. Slight malt aroma and flavor. Just ok.

SONOFWODEN (77) - New York, USA - SEP 2, 2017
Poured with a great 2-inch head that stood up over the top of the glass and laced down the glass. Very hazy orange-color, which I liked, with medium carbonation. Aroma was typical bready, not much hops. Taste is that same bready, not sweet with just a little spice and hops. Medium, kind of creamy body. I enjoyed it and would drink it again -- but -- if Two Hearted Ale was on the menu, I would rather have Two-Hearted.

Not my favorite by far. The smell ruins it. Don't know why it has such high ratings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2017 Not super wheaty, hint of floral notes. Light and refreshing with light kick at the end
