COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours light golden and hazy with a thin foamy white head.Aroma of corn, light toasted grains, and mild fruity esters. Taste is light graininess with wheat and some apparent adjuncts, although I doubt if this beer actually contains corn, it sure does smell and taste like it. A very mild citrusy/fruity note is also noticable, but not dominant. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation. Really not as bad as most American Wheat beers, but this still isn’t very appealing, please try again.

Draft @ Bell’s Eccentric Cafe: Hazy yellow color with an off-white head. Light fruity aroma with notes of both red and green apples. The flavor was light and fruity with a touch of spice. Light body.

Bottled. Has a fruity, citrus taste that is very crisp and refreshing. It does not have a skunky scent, but a flowery, fruity scent. My drinking mates have raved so much about this beer, and they’re right! Highly recommended!!!

Bottle. Pours very cloudy yellow with thin white head. The aroma is of wheat and lemon zest with some bready notes. The flavor is crisp and zesty with a yeasty foundation. Some grapefruity hops are even evident in the finish, but fade into a clean, slightly sweet aftertaste. Refreshing.

2006. Batch 7319. 12 oz. bottle. Bottle conditioned. Pours cloudy yellow. Thin, white head, goes away to a layer of foam that stays mostly until the end. Squiggly, little dark floaties that end up sinking. A huge, thick layer of sediment left in the bottle. Little bit of lacing. Aroma is definitely wheat. Some lemony citrus and some yeasty aroma. Flavor - initial impression is that this is the best American Wheat I’ve ever had. Vanilla, a tiny bit sweet, really nice, crisp finish. Tiny bit of orange, lemony crispness and a little bit dry. Palate is light and medium at the same time, but it feels more like medium. Just the right amt. of carbonation and really smooth. This beer has a ton of hype and pretty much lives up to it - for a summer american wheat, which isn’t my favorite style by any stretch. This is really good and very nice for the summer. Good body while staying light and it has a lot of flavor.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 On tap. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a white head. The flavor is of a carbonated wheat, orange, and spices (pepper). It is well balanced and very drinkable.

Pours a hazy yellow orange with a foamy white head with some pretty nice retention. The aroma is pretty much yeast, but there is some mild clove and banana..a very light aroma overall. The flavor is also light with some clove, banana, wheat malt, lemon zest, and yeast. Creamy over the tounge, the carbonation is pretty much on...not too much nor too little, and the finish is pretty clean. Pretty much what you’d expect from the style, it may not be mind blowing but it is very crisp and refreshing. Overall this is a really great summer session beer, not a whole lot to bog you down and enough flavor to keep you interested.

From a 12oz. long neck brown bottle with a short blurb about the wheat ale and a batch number, 7259, packaged on 02/20/06, on the back label. Made a good appearance, poured a cloudy orange hued golden with a nice foamy white head that slowly settled into a semi-sticky, thin foamy lacing, good carbonation. Had a wheat malty and spicy, floral hop nose with the Bell’s house strain yeastiness. A crisp, smooth medium bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Delicious tasting, wheat, slightly fruity, maltiness, a sharp hop bite from the spicy camomile-like Saaz hops, a little alcohol warmth in the palate and a crisp, spicy, malty finish. One of favorite seasonals from Bell’s, a really tasty pale wheat ale.
