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.

MIBG Fest: Golden-yellow colour with a tight white head. Aroma and fresh and floral/spicey and slightly soapy, but not unpleasantly so. Mouthfeel is crisp and slightly creamy. Flavour is moderately malty and spicey, and it is a good dry hoppy finish.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Light wheat aroma, with nice hint of citrus. Cloudy pale amber with small foamy off-white head. Medium watery body and medium carb. OK wheat beer, but more bitter than wheaty. Still citrusy and refreshing.

Very aromatic, citrusy/yeasty. Good color, a little dark for the style but acceptable. Good wheat flavors on the palate and nice bubbly mouth feel.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2003
Nice aroma of citruys along with a citrusy flavor mainly lemon. Light and refreshing I guess. Slight hops bite towards end. Not Bells best but still good.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 14, 2003
Cloudy golden wheat color. Some lacing on the (plastic) glass. Light, wheaty aroma. Light, slightly sour yeasty flavor with some balancing malt and sweetness. Nice, but should not follow Bell's cherry stout, expedition stout, and eccentric ale (served in that order -- by command of Larry Bell -- at an RFD beer tasting). Good. Accessible.

this was the first beer i experienced on ym trip back home to Muskegon, Michigan, i tried this at The Station in Roosevelt Park, cloudy and gold color to it, they garnished this with a squeeze of lemon and the slice on the rim of the glass, i looked at them rather odd when they did it but it accented it perfectly, i then bought a 6er of this at E-Z Way in Muskegon, and retried it without the lemon..., malty, almost chewy, but crisp and clean in the finish

I really depends upon which year you get this stuff. Sometimes it's super nicely balanced and complex, other times...not so complex. Color is a bright yellow-orange, good head due to the wheat, medium body, some snappiness from intermittent spiciness. Always refreshing though.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2003
Hint of hops aroma, cloudy, amber, a small cream coloured head. Malt and hops, with some caramel. Nicely balanced, sweet hoppy after taste. A nice one.
