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 saw myself skipping through a wheat field with pigtails.(Even though I am not a girl)Birds and bee's abound as I frolicked joyously lost in a field of bliss. The beer fairy hovered overhead with a long straw that was attached to a tank of Oberon. Wheeeee!!!!

Cloudy orangish color.Aroma has a faint smell of fruit and hops.Some fizziness in the mouth with a wheat flavor.Finishes somewhat smooth and sweet. Not bad for a wheat beer.

Bottled. Cloudy orange in colour. Neutral aroma. Some melon, a lot of fizz together with a watery light body and low bitterness makes this a highly disappointing effort from Kalamazoo. Some bubblegum in the finish can't save it.

Oregon Brewer's Fest. It was good to see a brewery like Bell's make it to the fest. Unfortunately the Oberon wasn't as great as some of the other experiences I've had with Bell's brews. Pale golden color. Very lite beer like with some yeast undertones.

Sorry, I found this quite bland. Nothing really happening here. Minimal hops, kind of a mediocre beer.

A straw color with an off white head. The aroma is of faint wheats and light hop. A good wheaty flavor that lingers and a hop that bites at your tongue a little. A solid and refreshing american wheat.

A good American wheat, possibly one of the best. Readily available in the summer months.

Light gold color. Medium head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. A medium bodied American Wheat ale. Malts are fruity and slightly sweet. Hops are fairly floral. Well balanced. Very nice wheat beer. Light and refreshing. Flavorful wheat beer. Very nice. Mild tasting yet, so well constructed wheat beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Clear light yellow, large white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus. I agree with DrNate. This was a little watery and slightly too bitter. A touch of citrus zing in the flavor. Pretty good.

A little too wheaty for me. Very good beer if you like the wheat taste. The label is very attractive.
