I brewed this beer with a friend who loves craft beer and is considering getting into brewing. His favorite beer is Oberon, so I looked for info about clones for that beer and cobbled this together. I have never had Oberon, so I can't say whether it is close. But the beer is good. The most surprising part of the brew is the pronounced fruit aroma that I would characterize as tropical fruit (and definitely more than just citrus). I'm having my friend over this weekend for his first tasting, and hope he enjoys it.
