I can't believe I haven't reviewed this one yet. Maybe that's because my first experience with this one was right before Larry Bell pulled out of Chicago for a while, and the place I had it apparently had tainted tap lines. Whatever the reason, I hated this one the first two times I had it at that place. I've since had it several times and obviously it's a great bottle.

Color is pale golden, as expected. Smell is a bit muted, but a slight grassy sweetness, some yeast and a little hint of bitterness. Taste is all wheat and yeast and a very minor bitterness in the end. And then it fades. Overall, as solid a wheat beer as you'll find anywhere.

On Tap: Thanks to FM, Color poured a super pale, hazy light yellow, and had a very tight leveled out type of lacing just above the white head.
Smells of zesty lemon and some spice, very clean and crispy. Taste is much like Belgian witbeir, very spritzy, lemon is sharply toned with a spicyness mixed in that blended well. It's mostly lemony then anything, imagine a Sprite or 7up with three times the lemon and add some wheat and yeast and wham-o, you've got this Oberon. I've had it in the bottle before, but on tap is so much more yeasty fresh then from the bottle. Super drinkable and highly recommended for quenching thirst on warm to hot days in summer.

Had this on draft at HopJacks in Pensacola. Served in a pint tumbler.

A: Poured a beautiful light orange. Had some debris in it. Was served with no head other than a thin wispy ring that did what it could with the lacing. I will chalk that up to a less than stellar pour. Still a good looking brew.

S: This is where it was lacking in my opinion, but still not bad. Smelled only of wheat and citrus.

T: Great. Lots of wheat up front with some nice hoppy notes, citrus (nice heavy orange), and malt. A great balance to this beer.

M: This beer is a bit on the light side but it works for the beer. Still has good coating and leaves a nice citrus aftertaste. Very refreshing and crisp.

D: I really liked this beer. It has the refreshing nature of a wheat but still has some hop backbone. Very nice.

I enjoyed this beer this afternoon after a rough week at work. I've had it many times out of the bottle, but this was my first draft experience.

A nice summer orange color, topped with a thin head. There is a citrus aroma that is obvious upon poor (sorta like Blue moon).
However, the taste is more refined with hints of orange and other citrus. The beer itself has a nice feel in the mouth and goes with a variety of dishes. I like this beer out of the bottle very much, so it it did not disappoint me on draft.
