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.

my favorite american wheat beer; i usually have it on tap. pours cloudy orange yellow with sediment and a sizeable head. has a playful aroma of citrus and spice. oberon is more full bodied than most wheat beers, with orange and citrus notes, wheat, decent malt and hops, and a dry finish. some places will serve it with a slice of orange, in my opinion it’s much better on its own.

This is one of the best wheat beers I’ve rated so far. Nice fruity aroma. Particles seen floating within a cloudy gold color. Head is excellent with nice lacing. Taste is very smooth and well balanced. Truly enjoyable brew.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy dark yellow with a gentle head. At first the aroma is all yeast but given time banana and bread notes appear. Dusty texture and muddy flavour. Belgian alcohol finish. Not a refreshing wheat.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2005
dusty yeasty aroma, apricots. Understated. Pours a murky orange, thin head. Bland in the middle. Strong alcohol finish diminishes refreshing finish that should be present in a wheat. Below par for Bells.

guzzler67 (1665) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Hazy, light amber appearance with an average size, white head and light lacing. Soft fruit and wheat in the aroma. Fruity, flowery taste complimented by some mild hoppiness. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated with a finish that is slightly bitter. On tap at Kclingers.

hershiser2 (2053) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2005
On tap. Pours very interestingly, looks almost like a smoothie or an orange julius. Light lemony wheat flavor. Tasty, and very thirst quenching on a hot day.

barenada (211) - Georgetown, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2005
(draft) Bright and fizzy. This would probably be good if it was a hot enough day. Like a million degrees or something.

marcus (9133) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 8, 2005
This blond wheat beer poured with a short white head, eliciting a strong, fresh aroma. The flavor is light with a slightly biting finish. Great beer on for a hot summer day.

As far as American Wheats go, this is one of the better ones! Nice hazy golden color with a thin foamy head. Light on the hops. Goes down real easy.
