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'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

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2003
Cloudy golden color, sweet fruits in the nose aand taste. Crisp and light tasting. Good for a summer day.

Superstar (45) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2003
Tap: Quite appealing hazy gold with rocky white head. Rather mild scents of bread and lemony zest. The taste started wheaty and then moved to more citric and spice flavors. Finish was slightly sour for my taste.

scarey label reminds me of god awful Mehana beer (my worst rated beer); but nowhere near that bad--well not all that good; spicy complex flavor fun but lacked texture too thin instead.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2003
A cloudy yellow. Aroma is much less harsh to the nose than a german wheat, just enough to let you know that it is a wheat. Kind of a sweet scent too. Hmmmm... a little sweet. Not bitter, but definite wheat flavor. Although I typically despise wheats, this one's okay!

YnotABeer (96) - Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2003 good, not great. Smell was a little funny, but it poured and looked good for a wheat beer. Taste seemed a little off though. Adding a splash of oj helped; but it's still quite good and refreshing, (ie. better than water/budmillercoors).

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2003
Pours a foggy darker yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma of yeast and light hops. Light bodied with flavors of hops and fruit but not in big doses. Finish is crisp and progressively bitter throughout the glass. I found this to be a little mundane but it was not too bad.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2003
Slightly hazy honey color with a medium white head. Crisp spicy aroma. Spicy hops taste. The finish and aftertaste turns dry and bitter. Reminds me more of a Kolsch.
