A bit out of season, but what the heck? Pours a cloudy yellow and has no head after a few seconds. It has a very yeasty, buttery aroma with a few citrus notes. The flavor is refreshing, light, but with a full body, and a decent bitterness that persists throughout... Not bad at all. It is nothing like a German wheat, but it is it's own beer. I hope to try a fresher example this upcoming summer.

bought a bottle at world market in lansing, michigan. ($1.49)

pours a dark starw (if that makes sence?) with hints of light orange, big pilowy head that falls into a thin sheet.
the aroma wheatie, breadie, yeastie, hint of citrus.
the flavor is wheatie, rich, hint of citrus, bit of spice, some hop flavor.
the mouthfeel is nice, little thin so it goes down easy on a summer day.
oberon is the sign that summer is here.

ps. i still miss solsun!
