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.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2004 Aroma is very bread-like, yeasty. Cloudy appearance. Slight spicey orange citrus flavor but tastes more like wheat bread.

Poured a large envigorating white creamy head with fine bubbles. The aroma appeared to be citrusy. The lacing was sparse on the sides of my glass. It was bitter tasting and it left a lingering aftertaste. I was expecting a better brew than what this one turned out to be.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 26, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a very large invigorated head of finely sized white bubbles and a cloudy orange unfiltered yeasty body. It had a hop aroma and was slightly fizzy in its start while coming to a smooth finish with its mild hop flavor.

BBB63 (5937) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2003
On Tap (Yogis Bloomington IN) - Huge creamy head on top of the hazy golden colored beer, thin bodied. All the characteristics of a white (wit) wheat beer, citrus nose, a little spicy on the palate. Well balanced for a wheat, finished with lingering wheat taste. Not as big and complex as others in the genre, but a very drinkable brew.

flemdawg (529) - Naples, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2003
Hazy golden color, and a thin white head. A bit of a fruity aroma, but a stuffy nose is preventing any real comments. Bit of a citrusy taste, and a bit of wheat. Dry finish. Over all, not too bad, but Bells has better.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 17, 2003
A beautiful golden/yeasty beer with a nice head. Excellent wheat flavor with a crisp finish. Has a fruity, spicy flavor that is great.

pale but cloudy in color. sort of bland all around. often served with citrus, for better or worse. basically, an "eh".

Having moved to Michigan in March, all I heard about was Oberon. When it arrived, I was disappointed. On tap the beer is gold (yellow?) with a cloudy appearance, but really thin mouth feel not the expected chewy feel I get with other good wheats. While the beer is refreshing, I found it lacking the fruity flavors I expect. This is a nice beer, but not a beer I would seek.

I'm starting to get into American Wheats and this beer is a fine example. Very refreshing.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2003 Again, I had to rerate because of the consistant problem that Bell's has with quality. Another infected Oberon. The ration is not almost 1 in 3 beers is bad. Dissappointing. Eddie G
