"An American wheat ale brewed with Saaz hops. Spicy and fruity, Oberon is the color and scent of a summer afternoon".
Oberon is the perfect summer beer and I'm bitter that it's not available in Chicago anymore. For those not aware, due to Illinois distribution laws, Bell's decided to pull all of its beers out of Illinois locations. If you're interested in more information, check this out:
I was able to pick up a six pack of this stuff this past weekend in Indiana, and the fact that it's available is a sign of summer approaching. It's crisp, refreshing, light with a hint of citrus, and blows Goose Island's 312 out of the water. Hopefully, someday, this stuff will be readily available in Chicago again.
