This review has been brewing for a while, no pun intended. I have had the Bell’s Oberon on tap, bought a 6 pack, waited three weeks…and now writing the review. During that time, I have “sampled” a few bottles and really started to formulate how I feel about the beer. I have also allowed others to have a go at tasting it, as it is always good to have other people’s opinions.

Troegs DreamWeaver, a Wheat Ale, is not normally consumed in the winter but it made a delicious treat for me. It brings back memories of the summer and this is a must-have summer beer. This beer comes in at a slighty-under the norm, 4.8% ABV for a nice light, craft beer. Considering the type of beer, I couldn’t find this on tap so this review is based off a 12 oz bottle.
Southern Tier, a micro-brewery based in Lakewood, NY, delivers a delicious session ale in its 422 Pale Wheat Ale. The pour of the bottle was very smooth and favored a golden, straw-like color. There was very minimal haze to it but it was briefly noticeable. The aroma was rather muted but you could definitely get the sense of a wheaty, field-like aroma. The taste was very smooth on the tongue and went down very well. There was definitely a hint of a fruit (it tasted like an orange perhaps) that gave a little bite to the finish. There was nothing very dry or lingering in the finish about this beer.
