Bell’s Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with Bell’s signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas. The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy dark yellow with a gentle head. At first the aroma is all yeast but given time banana and bread notes appear. Dusty texture and muddy flavour. Belgian alcohol finish. Not a refreshing wheat.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2005
dusty yeasty aroma, apricots. Understated. Pours a murky orange, thin head. Bland in the middle. Strong alcohol finish diminishes refreshing finish that should be present in a wheat. Below par for Bells.

guzzler67 (1578) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Hazy, light amber appearance with an average size, white head and light lacing. Soft fruit and wheat in the aroma. Fruity, flowery taste complimented by some mild hoppiness. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated with a finish that is slightly bitter. On tap at Kclingers.

hershiser2 (1533) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2005
On tap. Pours very interestingly, looks almost like a smoothie or an orange julius. Light lemony wheat flavor. Tasty, and very thirst quenching on a hot day.

barenada (211) - Georgetown, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2005
(draft) Bright and fizzy. This would probably be good if it was a hot enough day. Like a million degrees or something.

marcus (7838) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 8, 2005
This blond wheat beer poured with a short white head, eliciting a strong, fresh aroma. The flavor is light with a slightly biting finish. Great beer on for a hot summer day.

As far as American Wheats go, this is one of the better ones! Nice hazy golden color with a thin foamy head. Light on the hops. Goes down real easy.

12 oz. bottle. I don’t really understand why so many raters are dumping on this beer?! the stats page looks like a yo-yo. why not rate a beer for what it is, within the style it has been placed? IMO this is one of the better thirst quenching flavorful Amer. wheat I have sampled. I may have just found a new summer session beer.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2005
12oz - July 6, 05 - Aroma is pungent of wheat and stale hay. Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a small head and some lacing. Flavor is kind of mild with wheat, lemon, and a touch of malt. Palate is slightly sticky and sour. Not bad on a hot day, but not what I rememeber from the old "Solson" days...

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Pours a hazy deep golden yellow witha thin ivory head. Smells of crisp wheat malt. Tastes of grainy wheat. Hints of lemon and farina (!?!). A bit bland really. Mouth is crisp. Pretty drinkable I guess. A half step up from most boring American wheats but that is faint praise indeed.
