Oberon has returned! I had been craving one for quite some time. This beer is the embodiment of Spring/Summer. It reminds me of warm summer afternoons mowing the lawn, grilling steaks on the deck with friends and family, or laying out on the beach overlooking Lake Michigan. It is very well balanced with a more banana, lemon, and orange taste upfront with a slight hop bitterness on the backend. Not sure if your supposed to do this with American Pale Wheat's but I left two-thirds in the bottle and swirled. It made the appearance slightly cloudier and had a more yeasty flavor to it. Very carbonated and refreshing throughout. I would consider this a session ale even with the ABV above 5%. I can't wait for the 16oz cans later this month!

Cheers!
