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.

Bottled. Pours a slightly hazy orangey yellow with a small head that settled quickly. Aroma is of grainy/husky malt (hopefully no tannins) with some citrus and some slight fruity esters. Hops come through but barely. Flavor is of malted wheat and sweet caramel malt with some spicy noble hop flavor and moderate bitterness. This beer is definitely made using an English or American ale yeast as the fruity esters common to wheat beers are almost none existent except for a bit of citrus. Body is pretty thin and decently carbonted. Not too impressive to be from Kalamazoo.

Bells never disappoints me, even with a style thatís hard to work with as this one is. Light orange/copper, hazy pour. White head that sticks around for a while. Yeasty aroma, thicker mouthfeel than normal for a wheat, which is nice. Strong malt flavor with the wheat very apparent. Good esters in the flavor, too -- lots of clove and banana.

Light orange pour with a somewhat lasting eggshell head. Aroma is mostly yeast and very mild. Creamy mouthfeel with notes of wheat, banana and a little spiciness. The wheat lingers into the aftertaste. For the style its pretty good. I found it rather drinkable and a good example of a summer seasonal.

on tap, well carbonated. hazy light orange. a good medium bodied quaffable wheat with a spicy finish. good, but overall a bit on the bland side, though not compared to most american wheats.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2005
TAP. Pours a hazy straw color with good carb. and a nice lasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet from the wheat but spicy from the hops. Also seemed a little murky in the smell with lots of harsh yeastiness. FLavor is slightly sweet, malty, a bit grassy, and mildly hoppy. A relatively full body compared to most other american wheats, but still made to style.

Pours a light golden color w/ big carbonation a big thick small bubbled head and some chunks floating in it as well. Scent was initially a nice carmel malt some light fruits and a bit of dough. Palate is fairly creamy almost fluffy w/ a great mouth feel. Flavor is odd at the least a light nutmeg and wheat and an odd hop w/ some very light fruity floral tastes and a mild malt. Overall a great summertime beer.

Amber-orange color, nice fluffy head, fades quickly but leaves lots of lacing. Not much nose, some bread, light malt, alcohol, tart fruit, perhaps sherry. Taste is mild but sophisticated, mostly untoasted malt and yeast, almost no hops to be found, some citrus tartness, alcohol, fruitier as it warmed. Nice mouthfeel, not too fizzy, not too still, and not thin or watery. This was good but after sampling Imperial Stouts and IPAs over the last few days, it was almost bland. The German wheats I have had seemed much more flavorful. This one tasted good but I could have used a little more flavor.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2005 A great wheat beer by the fine folks at Kalamazoo. Have they made a bad beer yet? This pours a smooth light orange color with a little cloud to it. A slight citrus aroma with a small light head. The taste is very smooth with a pleasant spiced finish. This is a great summer time beer.

This is as good as any wheat beer gets. The ultimate session beer. Pours a beautiful cloudy orange with some sediment. A nice layer of fluffy white head stays the entire time with some decent lacing. Nose is all wheat and some florally citrus notes. Flavor is wheaty and earthy, again with some citrus and floral accents. There is a bit of creamy sweetness at the end with a pleasant hop presence. Mouthfeel is smooth with the perfect amount of carbonation. A perfect thirst quencher. One of the greats to come out of Kzoo. Enjoy.

Yellow and full of sediment. A good american wheat. A bit fruity with a light finish.
