4.08/5 rDev +7.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Thick, cloudy, honey-like. Yeast sediment permeates Bell's Oberon Ale. It almost seems like carbonation just slowly floats suspended in the beer, as if it weren't even moving. I have never seen something like this in a beer. Wonderful foam and good lacing.
Smell: Spicy, peppery hops. Some yeast and malt as well. Overall very good. Nothing exciting, but it's well balanced.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Initially I taste a lot of excellent spicy hops. The hops pervade throughout the entire beer. A bit of bready malt in the background. Also I taste something sort of buttery and sweet that adds to a good, creamy mouthfeel here as well. Great overall.
Drinkability: Very little to complain about. Maybe a bit too much bitterness for some people.
Overall: Only the smell leaves something to be desired. One of the easiest wheat beers to drink in my opinion.
Serving type: on-tap

3.49/5 rDev -8.4%

Beer pours a cloudy and hazy darker yellow. Some chunks of yeast can be seen suspended in the beer despite a careful pour. Head settles out to a thin collar.
Smells of wheat, citrus and a general yeastiness. Nothing sticks out too much.
The flavor begins with an initial smooth wheat flavor. No real fruitiness. Finishes with a fairly assertive hop bitterness. Bitterness is well short of a pale ale, but stronger than most American wheat beers.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side do medium bodied. Medium level of carbonation.
Straightforward American wheat ale with an enjoyable hop presence that leaves the yeasty wheat flavor intact. A good summer brew, but climbs up a bit in abv compared to many others in the same style. Not out of place though.
