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!

This is a pale gold colored beer with a very hazy body, and a slight head of airy foam. Aroma consists of little more than faint wheat malt. Nice hoppiness, with high bitterness and a grassy, citrusy hop flavor. The yeast strain gives a well-rounded fruitiness. Otherwise, nothing much else here. It is well-carbonated and refreshing.

Nothing too special, but a pretty drinkable beer. It reminds me of the early days of micros when everyone made a generic American wheat.

Pours a cloudy straw color with yeast floaters all around. The finger of white head dissipates slowly but steadily. The nose is yeasty. The flavor profile follows the nose and, of course, has plenty of wheat upfront.

This offering is slightly tastier than the average wheat beer but it is certainly nothing special.
