12oz bottled on 3/18/18
Pours a hazed gold/amber color beer with a 1/2" off white head and short retention.
Wheat. Orange-y. Yeast.
Taste follows the nose, it's not simple or complex...somewhere in the middle with definitely enough to keep interest and come back for more.
Full bodied. Low to medium carbonation. Clean and finishes quick and dry...a plus.

Yeah, like Alexis Ren's instagram, I'm into it. Bright orangish hue like I feel F.W. Murneau's masterpiece, Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans would look like if it was shot in technicolor. Taste is like waking up next to Alesandra Ambrosio on a cloudy day, and then having her freshly squeeze you some orange juice - I can get used to this. It's not the most vibrant, it doesn't speak to me like Sartre at midnight, but it is there and proud. And that is enough for the Raul man.

From Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids MI ON March 26 - Oberon release day. Pours a slightly hazy amber golden with fruity citrus aroma with bit of yeast. Taste citrus - orange, slightly grainy, mild clove with touch of spicy hop. Smooth juicy mouthfeel, well carbonated. Though still winter like while consuming does taste like spring - really good.

Grand Rapids local Family Fare sells a ton of Bell's products. Pint can poured into a Witbier curved glass.

Orange to amber pour with a thick couple inch head. Little to no lacing and aesthetically pleasing. Aroma is of huge wheat presence with undertones of orange peel and a typical malt backbone. Mouthfeel is of standard wheat taste but is most definitely of a higher quality than domestic wheat beers. The orange notes are diminished and very subtle to the taste. It's an interesting beer that definitely isn't something to write off. I see why many people rant and rave about Oberon but I'm not overwhelmed
