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.

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.

Batch 7016. Poured a hazy amber with a white head. Aroma was of wheat and citrus. Definitely a great summer brew.

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 youíd 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 Bellís 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 Bellís, a really tasty pale wheat ale.

Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Aroma was wheaty & mildly spicy. Had a short- lasting off-white head on a hazy dark yellow body. Not too shabby, but nothing to do write home about.

Bottle 2006 batch. Pours a nice light, golden, honey brown. Aromo is a little weak for me. Light yeasts and malts. With a touch of wheat coming through. Nice white head, that gets small but sticks around. Wow, this would be a nice beer to enjoy after a hot day of yard work. Very light ob the tongue. Wheats, malts and a few hops are present here. With just a hint of citrus bite to it. Very nicely done Bells!

Here in Michigan people get excited about this beer as itís seasonal, so I decided to finally try it for myself. Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head, lots of dense lacing. This is a very pretty beer. Aromas of wheat, grass, yeast, banana, orange. Smells very fresh, nice. Flavor is not as complex as the aroma unfortunately. Typical wheat beer taste with hints of the afore mentioned flavors and a gentle hop bite. Finishes clean and slightly sour. Mouthfeel is light and watery with moderate carbonation, refreshing. This is a nice summer brew, not outstanding, but still pretty good. Itís worth trying, I just donít see what all the fuss is about.

Zinnamon (40) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2006
Very subtle aroma, smells like a flower garden. It poured to a golden yellow. Almost like a carbonated pee, but in a good way. A simple beer but very tasty for its purpose. Great for a hot day. It was very difficult to put my finger on the taste of it but you could definetly not taste any alcohol. Oberon was wheaty and I enjoyed the taste but it was nothing out of the ordinary.

Pours a light yellow orange. Looks a few shades darker than a pilsner. Straighforward wheat flavor and aroma of fruityness. Very distinct taste. Not bad, maybe its not warm enought outside yet.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Original rating 4/13/2006 On tap at the Red Hawk

After a series of lovely experiences with Bells, this one has been my first disappointment -- and itís a considerable disappointment.

The beer pours cloudy and fizzy with an orange peel aroma and a spicy/pepper overcarbonation that comes out prickly and heavy on the stomach. The flavor is rather bland, and overwhelmed by the carbonation.

6/3/5/2/9 Revisit 7/5/2013 Very nice American wheat. My palate had a lot of growing up to do first time around. Iím replacing rather than averaging the two ratings.
