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.

Batch 6267, the new 2004 release. This beer looks very nice. I'd call it yellow-orange. The suspended yeast takes a spot and just hangs out there for the whole beer. It doesn't seem to settle at all. It really looks great. Aroma of yeast and wheat. The taste is refreshing as it takes over much of the mouth. There is a sour and spice character to the taste along with a wheaty feel. I plan to enjoy this beer often throughout the spring and summer.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2004 Cloudy golden color. Aroma is fruity and yeasty. Flavour is Malty with some citrus and spice from the hops. Finish is dry.

Shag (2647) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2004
Aroma is wheat and sour fruit. Apperance is a murky orange with a moderate head and excellent lacing. Flavor is sour with some oranges, pears, and bananas. A very refreshing summer beer that offers lightness along with complexity. I am impressed with Bells if they can brew a decent American Wheat! Because usually I despise this style of beer. Get out the lawnmower come June and grab this beer!

Aroma was terrific -- I got a vision of sunlight, warmth, fields of ripe crops of wheat and corn. Even though it was a touch old, I enjoyed the yeasty, hoppy mesh, would have it again.

Wow. I'm not impressed at all. It's weird how one brewery can make both this and the Two Hearted. Pours a cloudy amber looking like caramel with almost no head and no lacing. Smells yeasty with some malt. Tastes way too malty. I can sense some grains in there. The excess carbonation covers the tongue quickly masking other tastes. Mouthfeel is moderate and creamy with too much carbonation for my tastes. Drinkability is okay. It's not objectionable, it's just not good.

Hazy golden apperance with a yeasty, citrus aroma. A light/moderate creamy body. Tastes sweet; hops add a nice kick. Finish is slightly acidic with a dry aftertaste.

I had this in a dive bar near Wrigley field. Very clouds, fruity aroma and taste. Easy to drink, like most wheat beers.

Cloudy yellow color with a big white head. Aroma of yeast and a little citrus. Flavor of yeast, wheat and citrus. A little sour and the finish is very dry.
