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.

On tap. Lightly orange hazy color with a light head. Aroma is lighty yeasty and citrus, rather weak though. Flavor is moderatly yeast, lighly hoppy, orange, and grapefruit tones, with lightly spicy hints. Probably the best summer beer I have ever had, but thats not an all too powerfull statement.

Small fizzy head above a yellow body with a slight orange tint. Really no aroma at all. Maybe some wheat. But basically nothing. It does have decent flavor though, but is also light. Sort of a very light fruity wheat taste. Fruit includes oranges, bananas, apples and some light pilsner-hop bitterness. I appreciate the "complexity" in the taste, though it is very light. I could still enjoy a few on a hot day.

Not really a disappointment as through the course of time I’ve read so many reports here of people that didn’t think a lot of this. The larger disappointment that my brother brought a whole sixer of this, rather than another Bell’s. Still, I hoped for a bit more SOMETHING to come up over the top. Found some, but little comfort in my non-beer drinking brother saying "I could drink this" ... Nice layer of yeasty bidness that did little to impart much over the generally middleoftheroadwithsomebetterflavor. Better than a yawn, but not by a wide margin.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2008 rerate. on tap at pauls bavarian lodge. deliciously fresh from the tap. pours cloudy golden pour. fruity notes tagged with a light hop backdrop mixed notes of spice and dough. flavor is similar with more spice showing up and some malt flavors trying to peakak through. goes down swell and smooth. uterly refreshing. have it on draft if at all possible.

A midwestern summer classic! Refreshing and flavorful, beautiful cloudy yellow appearance. Rich, full body and good hop presence for a wheat beer. Note: this review for draft Oberon - this beer is VERY different (disappointing) in bottles. I may have had mishandled merchandise, though.

This is a damn good beer. It will provide the courage I need nicely to shave my head. Gawd bless beer and its wonderful side effects!

hazy golden orange color with a thin white head, distinctive wheat aroma with a bit of sweet bananas as well as a hint of orange peel (coriander). wonderfully smooth flavors of wheat and orange with a smooth refreshing palate...great summer brew.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2007 Bottle pours a hazy yellow with a big white head and good lace. The aroma is almost Belgian, spicy, clove, citrus, and hops. The flavor is citrus, spicy, a touch of clove, and more hops than I expect in style. The palate is rich, made more so by the agitation of a lots of sediment and somewhat carbonated. Overall, this is pretty awesome.

On draft. Nice crisp wheat with a great little hoopy bite. I wish I sampled more from this brewery, they seem to know what they are doing. Very murky pour (in a good way!) Spicy notes of cloves, orange and too many others to write about.
