This beer pours a very orange color with a medium white head and moderate lacing on the glass. The aroma is filled with hints of citrus and other fruit along with wheaty characteristics. The taste was surprisingly low in wheat and very smooth. This is one of the first Bell's beers that I've really enjoyed drinking and I would recommend this to most people.

Slightly murky yellow. Wheat, lemon, and light citrus on the nose. Flavor is bright and sweet lemon with ginger. Balanced sweetness with slight sour from the lemon presence. Quite enjoyable.

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!!!!

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.
