12oz bottle from batch # 10317 poured into pint glass on 05/20/2011. This was one of my first beers that helped me discover craft many years ago- this is my first time reviewing it.
Hazy orange body with lighter edges topped with a creamy, white head. Good retention and good lace. The nose is simple but nice- citrus and honey. This ale tastes as it smells but add some wheat notes. Very well balanced. Light to medium body with crisp medium carbonation. Overall Oberon is a decent summer drinker. I find it pairs well with salads. Not Bells best but a flagship none the less.

Oberon is the color and scent of a summer afternoon poured into a pint glass.
Head nearly white sustained by nice beading from the higher level of carbonation. Lace persists, although not much of a test since this brew drinks fast. Great with a pulled pork sandwich like the one I am having from Sweet Water Bar-B-Que (famous in the Ft. Leonard Wood area).
Americanized version of a Hefe Weizen (without German Weizen flavors and aromas of banana esters and clove-like phenols) brewed with Saaz hops. Spicy and fruity, O.G.1.057
