Brewmaster Brad's Notes: "Obi Ron's Wheat is a perfect beer for the spring and summer months, but it goes down just as nicely any time of year. Brewed with nearly 50% white wheat and a dash of light crystal malt, the malt flavors are quite prominent and serve as a perfect backdrop for a modest hop charge. The choice of liquid yeast pairings works wonderfully to accentuate hop flavor with a heightened fermentation derived ester profile, and a small Centennial dry hop step serves to really round out the aroma."

Nice, crisp, flavorful and refreshing beer. Glad to be drinking this one as the weather warms up.
tried this as a straight wheat beer - no orange zest, no fruit, no spice and its very good. I'm not a hop head so I did cut the Centennial hops in half and this turned out great. Also recommend longer time in bottles than 2 weeks. It only gets better with time
I brewed/fermented according to the recipe. Temperatures were a little cool (60-65 deg F), however, I had good activity in the primary fermenter. I followed good cleaning processes as I had before. My first brew was fresh squished IPA, and it turned out great. This brew carbonated well but the final product has a "wangy" (not sweet) flat taste. I am not sure if maybe I missed something or if this brew just doesn't agree with my palate.
So far not so good. First tasting at 2 weeks the beer did not even look or act like beer, more like a soda, and when orange wedge was added it was a science experiment. They have aged better a bit, but still not a very pleasant beer to drink at the time.
Produces a decent representation of Oberon. Think it would have been closer without the optional dry hop addition. Would omit that if I buy again next summer.
