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.

This is the beer that originally got me interested in microbrews over 5 years ago, but it’s gotten to the point here in Michigan where it’s way overrated. Hazy yellow color, small head. Sweet aroma and taste. Wheaty, citrus flavor. Overall a drinkable summer beer, but not something I usually go out of my way to buy.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2006 Tap; South Lyon Hotel....Wow...this now American standard (or at least here in Michigan), is well done. Hazy orange hue of the sun…small but extremely white and frothy head. First sip is citrus and alcohol. But, after a few more pulls, it seems to mellow a bit. Its incredible with pizza! Really cuts the cheese nice….uh…ignore the pun. I can really taste the Belgian malt and its hopped perfectly. Great beer….and even good ice cold.

Pours a golden yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is wheaty with hints of hops and lemon citrus. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, wheaty with lemon. Very refreshing brew.

Staple summer drinking in Michigan. Despite all the great Bell’s, this is usually the only one on tap in the Detroit-Metro area. Still, it’s what you need on a summer day.

This is an old standby now. Brewed only in the summer, and there is a reson for it... it is a very summer brew! Your bananna/coriander american-style wheat with a kick of citrus. Way to fun... I drink about 3 dozen of these each summer. It is hard to avoid in Michigan.

Pours an opaque buff with little head. Slightly sour aroma with bread yeast and some spiciness. Sweet and bready in flavor. A little spicy, a little caramel, a little citrus. Nice body. Better than Widmers though not my favorite style.

I had this beer from the tap. Slightly unpleasant aroma, but tastes very good. A good mix of tastes, this beer leaves a lemony, malty aftertaste. I’ll have to try it again to get a better picture of it.

Pours a golden orange with a thin white head. Aroma is decent, with scents of hops, malts and yeast. Flavor is well balanced with a smooth palate, consisting of : hops, yeast, malts and lemons.

Being from Kalamazoo, Oberon is taken to an obsession. Pours yellow-orange, cloudy. Occasionally some sediment. Spicy, but not as hopped up as other wheats I’ve had, and not as much as I would like. Fruit/citrus finish is enjoyable. Overall good, but needs to be re-examined to keep up with local competition in the SW Michigan area.

Pours a nice yellow-orange color with a cloudy unfiltered body. Spice and citrus taste and aroma. A sweet finish with less hops than I would have expected.
