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.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Pours an orangish/yellow color with a small but lasting head. Faint yeasty, malty scent with a little spice and fruit. Taste suble with some cloves, yeast, very very light banana and a sweet and oh so slightly buttery bitter finish. Buttery, oily mouthfeel. An okay beer, but I find it a little dull. Gumball head makes this beer taste like Miller Lite in my opinion.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2006 Soft, snowy white head and cloudy dark straw-colored body. Surprising aroma of butterscotch, biscuits, nuts, and yeast. Wheaty, butterscotch flavor with a tangy, tangerine quality. Light spiciness and well-integrated hops that are a subtle but substantial component. Long, woody finish. High diacetyl levels make this a highly unusual American wheat beer but it is unique and interesting. Later cleaner samples were much more refreshing and enjoyable.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2004
Terrific aroma as soon as I opened the bottle. Citrus, bannanas, and yeast dominate. The nearly unnoticable head dissapears quickly but there is an acceptable amount of lacing. The colour is nice, a bit murky and has a nice gold look. The beer is creamy in my mouth and is incredibly smooth. The citrus is noticable in the taste as is an slight feeling of a dry wheat like taste. I enjoyed this beer and will definatly revisit it with freiends next summer.

Pours straw yellow. Light citrus nose. Not sweet, not hoppy, just perfectly balanced.

garrison (792) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2004 From a bottle (though I’ve had it on tap, too) - It poured a nice autumn gold hue, with tight lacing in the tall head, snd the aroma wasn’t as "banana-esque" as like in my wheat beers. Still, the flavor was good, and I recommend this beer.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2004
had this on draft in chi town: this one was poured out a rich orange color haze with bits of a white whimsical head. nose of yeasty mites and citrus blanching. this one reminds me alot of pyramid heffe with a little extra special twist of spice and thickness. a good beer.

Pailhead (5381) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2008 Bottle: Aroma is citrusy, pepper, spicey, and dirty wash cloth. Pours a nice hazy yellowish-orange with white head without much retention. Initial flavor is sweet but very weak. Orange is the strongest flavor in the finish. Very slight sourness and hops in the finish as well. Very thin mouthfeel. I have a lot of friends that really like this stuff. It’s decent but nothing all that exciting. 4-4-6-4-14

Time for a re-rate

Bottle: The aroma is citrusy with some notes of pepper, orange peel, and faint banana. It pours a hazy orange with a moderate white head that leaves behind sporadic lacing. The flavor starts with a moderate orange presence with some light banana in the background. The finish has tangy wheat notes, orange peel. and light pepper. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A solid session brew.

Goodfella (60) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2004
Bottle-I was not impressed. I thought the beer lacked flavor. It tasted a bit watered down and lost its head quick. in fact when poured, it has no head? oh well.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - SEP 21, 2004
Cloudy yellow body with a few splashes of sun and copper. Head is very small, white and gone in no time. Smell is fragrant citrus leaves, cotton, butter, sugar and also of yeast. Smells almost like a bag of kettle popped corn. Taste is sweet and bright and could almost be mistaken as a belgian double. The clarity of the flavors are excellent allowing my taste buds to harvest curaco, lemon and lime zest, bubble gum flavored sugars, clove, yeast and alcohol. Taste finishes with a grapefruit-like, dry hop ending. Very good and certainly a top favorite of this style. Given to me by my great friend jbg9348.

jercraigs (8289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2004
Pours a hazy pastel yellow-orange body with a moderate white head. Aroma is mostly fruit accented yeastiness - mild citrus and maybe banana - with a bizarre sort of sour undercurrent that I can only describe as stale elementary school student vomit. This sounds harsh, but its the best thing I could come up with to describe what is in actual fact not that bad. Just a bit of a... wheaty? bite in the background. Pleasant medium-thick palate. Flavour is refreshing and restrained yet still subtly complex. Otherwise sweet profile is balanced by the bitterness with a wheaty bite to it. Finish vaguely reminds me of some of the Unibroue products. Thanks for this bottle Obisbeer.
