Because it's over-rated. And it's a wheat beer. (Which suck.)

Well, this thread is off to a great start I think.

Y'all have let me down even more! LOL!

I happen to like most wheat beers, and have yet to find Oberon "overrated". Now I'm a day behind! Not sure how I will make it up. I *could* drink 2 tonight (if I can even find any now!), but I still missed out on enjoying it yesterday! Can't go back in time.

total n00b here and wow, didn't know Bell's had TWO over-hyped, over-rated, intentionally under-supplied seasonals

Last years release was spectacularly blah. I used to really like it when I lived in Lansing. I got some last year and it tasted like band-aids. I contacted them and they tested the batch I referenced. Said it was fine but sent me some swag for my troubles. I like Bell's typically but Oberon has lost my vote.

Hmm... I haven't been let down yet. Only time is when I got some very early in the season and it was a bit hoppy/bitter. I thought it was just my tastes due to drinking Blue Moon before that. Most of the time I have to limit myself so I don't get too used to it. Besides, there is always Two Hearted to drink too.

I've had Arcadia's version and wasn't impressed. There are lots of that style out now, but I just enjoy whatever Bells has done with their recipe.
