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.

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.

Very overrated, but still the best Bell's and pretty good if you have money burning a hole in your pocket.

This was my first Bells beer and a welcome introduction to quality beer. The taste was definately full of citris and wheat. It pours a cloudy yellowish color and has a nice fruity aroma.

Oberon poured a very hazy/cloudy yellow gold with a nice white head with fine bubbles. It had a wheaty, citrusy aroma. It had a nice slight citrus taste with a hoppy finish. Wheat beers are normally my favorites, but this is a good specimen.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2003
Cloudy golden yellow/orange with a thick but diminishing white head. Nice sweet aroma of banana, spice, oranges, and honey. Thin palate, with loads of carbonation. Flavor is wheaty, and has malt and citrus notes with a hint of pepper. Light and refreshing. An excellent session beer, I could drink quite a few of these.

(Bottle from summer of '02) Pours a murky orange with a rather large, short lived head. Aroma is light with elements of sweet oranges and honey? Wonderful. The flavor is much lighter than I have come to expect from this beer. It also has a heavier alcohol presence than I'm use to. Slightly nutty malt paired with wheat elements dominate the body. The finish is light and somewhat underwhelming. I found this bottle at one of my local merchants along with a year old bottle of Bells' Best Brown. I was curious to see what they would taste like after a year. Though this isn't a bad brew by any means, age is not kind to one of my favorite beers which normally scores well into the 4's

(Bottle) Pours a cloudy orange-yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is kind of sweet. Good tasting light bodied beer.

Pours murky yellow with a medium white head. Aroma and flavor are a tad yeasty. Hops and fruit are apparent, but perhaps it would be improved if it were a bit stronger on the hops and fruit. I hate to rate a Bells relatively low, but I found this to be very average for my tastes.

Thanks go out to the Hot and Spicy BeanDip for bringing the Oberon and Porter back from her travels, BeanDip Rocks!

I’m drinking this baby out of my Erdinger Weizen glass…Poured in the sediment to make it a cloudy blustery sunrise of gold and orange, a head of frothy white sea foam blows to shore.
The flavor and aroma suggest a dusty wheat likeness, orange zest, a pinch of cinnamon, bananas, and peach juice. The palate is sublime….smooth and creamy. Bitter fruity banana and orange peel finish….. Quite enjoyable
