A good wheat ale. Had a lot of (probably too much) Oberon when I was in Ann Arbor last summer!

Pours a brilliant bright orange. Nice white head. Aroma is pretty standard for a wheat ale...a little weak, but no real complaints...maybe there's a sort of popcorn smell I'm picking up - yeasty elements as well. Taste is some orange with rather bland malts. Feel is nice- highly carbonated..medium bodied. Overall, seems to be more of a summer easy sipper. Not a lot going on to like or dislike really.

This one pours a very cloudy blonde color with a nice white head that is relatively thick and settles moderately slowly while leaving nice lacing down the glass.

The noise is sweet malts, bread, cumin, back pepper and a touch of pine.

The taste is an exceptional one with similar notes to the nose and sweet malts, bread, cumin, back pepper and a touch of pine. Great balance and very excellent overall flavor. I love it.

The mouthfeel is rich but not too rich and it is just right for this style.

Overall another fine example of a rather exceptional beer.

This is an above average beer, it pours a nice golden color with a fluffy white head, and there is a descent amount of Lacing left on the pink glass. This is worth a try.
