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.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2006 Thicker than typical German-style wheat beer, but not as thick as saison. Mildly tart and astringent but lacking the strong yeast profile typical of unfiltered wheat beers. A more complex hop and yeast presence would make Oberon like a good saison rather than a heavy American wheat.

Bottle..poured a nice light yellow with a good head and decent lacing. not to much aroma but what there was was a little fruity. I dont like wheat beers, but this was very light and easy drinking and not bitter at all.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2006 The big surprise is an American Wheat can actually taste good. Much like a hefeweizen. Gold, lots of yeast. Flavors of orange, coriander, citrus, and wheat. Easy to drink and refreshing. Good stuff.

Interesting brew. A little thicker, sweeter, and less refreshing than what I expected. But still a good brew. Kinda reminded me of drinking a big glass of juice. Not one of my favorite wheat beers but not bad either.

Found the aroma of this very displeasing. Smelled of clorine. I do not think it was a tainted glass, as I have drank many a brew at this bar. The cloudy hazey liquid reminded me of a Saison. The taste was light up front but had a big wheat middle with a somehat strange aftertaste.

07.17.04 12oz bottle, trade from jsquire. Pours a muddied oak color; very little head. the beer is crisp and wheaty. Backyard weedy. There is a touch of citrus sourness to it and a later hint at bitterness. An interesting take on American wheat. Thanks Jeff.

Pours a hazy yellow orange. Very little head on this one, and it goes fast. Aroma is rather citrus and spicy. Flavor is dominated by the Czech Saaz hops, and proved to be a bit too spicy for me personally. A nice summer beer.

Hazy Yellow Coloring. No Head. Wheat. Fruit. Hops. Little bit of Bitterness at the end. Not a bad Summer Beer.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 11, 2004
On tap. Lightly orange hazy color with a light head. Aroma is lighty yeasty and citrus, rather weak though. Flavor is moderatly yeast, lighly hoppy, orange, and grapefruit tones, with lightly spicy hints. Probably the best summer beer I have ever had, but thats not an all too powerfull statement.

Small fizzy head above a yellow body with a slight orange tint. Really no aroma at all. Maybe some wheat. But basically nothing. It does have decent flavor though, but is also light. Sort of a very light fruity wheat taste. Fruit includes oranges, bananas, apples and some light pilsner-hop bitterness. I appreciate the "complexity" in the taste, though it is very light. I could still enjoy a few on a hot day.
