COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bellís Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with Bellís 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.

Beautiful beautiful color. Canít say that itís typical of AMerican wheats but I liked it. In fact I liked it so much that I named my cat after it!

Cloudy orange, thin head for a wheat. Slightly orange wheat nose. Flavor is nutty, wheaty orange. Too sweet. Clovey?

Bottled at the DC gathering. I was disappointed with this one. perhaps it was always going to suffer in comparison with all the big, beefy beers I had been tasting before it. Itís quite fruity (melons in there somewhere) but I found it rather run of the mill. I know itís the style but, without the banana esters of German wheat or the spices of a Belgian, I struggled to find much of interest. Iím sure it would be fine as a summer quaffer and may have impressed more in less exalted company.

Startling color of goldenrod leaning towards green. Bespeckled with suspended motes. Miniscule head and little carbonation. Massive buttercream and caramel nose with apple, hay, and a hint of cumin. Slight caramel again leads the flavor, with supporting roles being fruity unripe peach tartness, butterscotch, wax, and minerally wellwater. Light and creamy palate. Clean finish with a chalky afterfeel. Ho-hum wheat ale oddly dominated by diacetyl and buttery yeast.

Typical summer ale, light bodied, light-medium carbonation and a cloudy pale yellow. Pours a one-fingered, white head that settles quickly but leaves some lace. Looking for the wheat and not finding it, this is a pale without the bitter hoppy aftertaste. 12oz bottle $1.75, from Liquor Barn, Lexington, KY.

Very pale. Light summer brew with a lemony hint. Unfortunately, I only have one to taste. I believe the previous entry was correct in the multiple effect. Another enjoyable brew from Bellís brewhouse brought from my brother in the North. Thanks, Lee!

pdoyleusa (17) - Clinton Twp., Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2004
The trick to pure oberon bliss lies in the serial consumption of several bottles of this classic michigan flavor. Cloudy to opaque from the tap, the citrus/malt/yeast combination is perfectly balanced and perfectly drinkable. While not so phenolic as most wheat beers, this wheat/barley blend brings planty of layers of complexity when drank with intention. A sour note buils up and up on the palate, increasing the mouthfeel to a sour, almost acidic level. Desire to quench the sourness leads to copious ingestion of malty citrus ale, until all that is left is the DISTINGUISHABLE intoxication and gut-feel that is characteristic of Larry Bellís Brews.

Had this at the DC/MD/VA/WV/PA gathering. Bottle courtesy of ??. Clouded amber with a small white head. Nose is watery wheat, some lemon, and yeast. Very grainy. Taste is wheaty and grainy with light citrus and a noticeable yeast note. Body is medium and it finishes with light sweetness, some citrus notes and more wheat and yeast. Seemed average to me.
