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.

notalush (4859) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2003
Pours thick for a summer ale, with no head and a murky blonde appearance with lots of large floaties. The bottom of the bottle is coated with a thick layer of white sediment. Smells very citrusy and mildly sweet. Mouthfeel is unusually thick and slightly creamy - flavor is slightly tangy, with a big citrus flavor and a nice malt presence for a summer beer - the finish is slightly bitter and hoppy, but mellows to a mild sweetness in the long term - aside from the appearance, this is probably the best wheat beer I've had yet.

NaturalIce (146) - originally from Michigan, New York, USA - MAY 30, 2003
By far one of the best summer ale's out there. Foggy appearance but it has a great taste. The bottle is pretty cool, too.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2003
UPDATED: APR 6, 2004 Aroma is very bread-like, yeasty. Cloudy appearance. Slight spicey orange citrus flavor but tastes more like wheat bread.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2003
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 (4935) - 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 (6045) - 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 (531) - 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.
