Tap at Oberon release party in Cbus. Very well balanced and drinkable. Not my preferred style of beer but I enjoyed it very much. Can see why this is their top seller. Dangerously drinkable.

Tap at Oberon release party in Indy. Hazy orange with minimal head and good carbonation. Aroma is all orange. Maybe some wheat, but lots of orange. Flavor reminds me of an IPA. High presence of citrus hops. Sweet fruit balance out and wheat presence makes for a nice smooth drink. Very drinkable. Palate is light but not watery.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2008 First day on tap at the brewery today...I guess summer is on the horizon. A few drafts at the brewery today and bottles (batch 7296). Moderate lacing. Wheat beers are not my favorite, but this one takes the cake. It accounts for over 60% of Bellís sales (yes, over their flagship brew), and I can see why. Great balance throughout. Very drinkable. Bellís Oberon is "plain beer" how "plain beer" should taste (wheat, NOT rice or corn).

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 In the bottle. This is a pretty honey cloudy golden beer with a thick fluffy white head. The strange thing is that the head has these darker tan splotches on top which I have never observed before in any other beer. Aroma is straw-like with honeysuckle scent. Has a wheaty tangy zesty flavor. Citrus is faint only. The finish is of a grainy wheat with a slight hop bitterness. Pretty good.

Draft. This is a wheat beer? Red/Brown cloudy body with a miniamal white head. Aroma of caramel sweetness. Taste similar. A decent session amber ale, I couldnít tell this was a wheat beer at all.

Without a doubt the best American wheat Iíve ever had. Crisp, fruity, orangey, juicy, with a spiciness from the Saaz that lent a zip to the otherwise clean aftertaste. Refreshing and tart even without the usual yeasty notes of the hefes I love.
