3.46/5 rDev -9.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
A - Cloudy flaxen color. Pretty thin with bubbles clinging to the glass, but not much head.
S - It smelled a little fruity: mango, apricot, grapefruit.
T - Its taste was a little sour, but fruity and yeasty.
M - Medium bodied, smooth, and pleasantly tangy.
O - It was interesting and definitely not bad for a wheat beer. I'd drink it again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
A: Very cloudy and mostly pale yellow. Very little head. Looks pretty decent.
N: Lots of peppercorns, some banana and light grapefruit. The malt shines through with an appreciable biscuit. Follows up with spruce and earth.
T: Very peppery with a decent level of bitter bite. There’s a lot of bread running through this which makes for a substantial meal. Slight lemon sourness.
M: Round mouthfeel with a light body. Ends dry. Very, very well carbonated.
O: A great summer drinker. Nothing to amaze, but it’s well built and is a good step up for those who haven’t had anything more intense.

Oberon mini keg. Served in a pint glass
A- Glowing orange/yellow. On the first day, without disturbing the sediment, it poured a hazy yellow. Henceforth I shook it a little and it had lots of suspended white floaties and was closer to orange. Cinnamon-colored deposits sat at the bottom of the glass. When first opening this keg, it has lots of carbonation, and pours a creamy white head. Small, tight bubbles.
S- Spice, wheat, barley. Very Pleasant
T- peppery, wheaty, malted barley. Moderate but evident bitterness. Not hoppy, but still spicy
M- smooth, thick, pleasing
O- different from the bottle compared to the mini keg. This is closer to a draft taste. I have suspicions that bottled it is bottle-conditioned and the mini keg is force carbonated. It's basically less earthy and tastes lighter. The second day drinking this there was little carbonation left, even with closing the tap and the vent, so I would recommend pouring all of it as quickly as possible. I would also recommend shaking the keg gently before opening to disturb the sediment. Overall, I just love the idea of a mini keg, and I had a lot of fun drinking this- with a little help from my friends.
