Smell is of whiskey right up front, for a barrel aged beer it's very light tasting. warmth on the back end of it. I am not an Oberon fan at all but the higher ABV and barrel properties on this make it a totally different beer.

Overall a very different, interesting beer that was enjoyable to finally try.

Digressing on the drinkability scale, but picking up the savory and spicy factor, Bell's Oberon foregoes its thirst quenching properties for more flavor, complexity and overall culinary charm.

Uberon emerges from its bourbon barrel nap with a light tarnish gold color and arrested in a cloudy haze. Glowing dimly, the ale crowns with a sparse, loose and lightly carbonated swath of foam. Whisky spice fills the nose with an undertow of fresh wheat bread, orchard fruit and exotic perfumy spice. Early flavors open with a wheaten sweetness that's remiss of pulled candy, fruit punch and sherbet.

As the ale unfolds on the middle palate, the sweetness slowly retreats and the flavors of fruit take command. Apple, lemon, papaya, pawpaw, apricot and pineapple all seem of the stewed, cobbler-like variety. Natural spices of white pepper, coriander, alligator pepper and clove are soothed with vanilla and caramel. Evading sweetness seems shockingly "circus peanut" candy like in the same way to many wheatwine. Bourbon spice trails with its own vanilla, toast, oak, coconut and caramel taste that adds both charm and fatigue to the late palate.

Medium full on the palate, the beer's sweet and lowly carbonated bulk lumbers on the finish, however its bright and fruity fare seems to keep the palate lighter with a playful fruit-like acidity. A mild prickle and a simmering warmth registers in a medium length afterglow of stewed fruit and exotic spice.

On Tap @ Blue Door Pours a light golden color with a fresh whispy head, looks great. Smell was wheat wood and whiskey all on the lighter side. Taste was mild whiskey with wheat and lemon citrus and malt . ABV well hidden on this with whiskey and barrel subtle well carbonated it tasted like a blonde barleywine , glad i got to try this from the tap, and would gladly try this one again.
