COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bellís Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with Bellís 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.

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.

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.
