3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 A malty, acrid, citric nose with notes of lemon and grapefruit. Slightly hazy light yellow hue with a small, fizzy white head. Mostly lasting with decent lacing.
The flavor is lightly malty with huge lemon notes up front. Acetic with just a whisper of hop bitterness and clover on the backside. Very well-balanced. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation and a watery mouthfeel. Short, crisp, clean finish. Very refreshing wheat beer!

Orangish hue, with a hoppy aroma. Taste is fruity, but doesnít last long. A mildly hoppy finish leaves you wanting more. This is my favorite drinking beer. I prefer it in bottles, as on draught it is sweeter.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2003 Update - I just had this on draft - have to give it another point on Flavor - the spicey/tangyness is more present. Interesting wheat - thick and lot's of "bread-dough" qualities, along with some citrus. I'm not sure if I cared for the hop flavor though.

Bellís version of a wheat is pretty darn good. Well hopped for the style, balanced with a little malt and smooth drinkability. Summer beer. Even tastes good with citrus.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2009 This is one of my all time favorites, very smooth and refreshing, it doesnít seem like summer until the first oberonís been cracked, I had to scale this rating down a little just because even though I really do love this brew, I think a 4.3 was a little high

Loaded with hops as are most beers from this brewery.. Nice body and full of flavor- yeasty, orangey. Remarkably smooth.

Probably the best wheat beer I have had in a long ass time. Cloudy, unfiltered. Rather big-bodied for a wheat beer....it had a unique "citric-breadiness" to it that gave me wood. Excellent sweet finish....great!

Nice golden appearance with some cloudiness. Tangy vannila and citrus flavor. The perfect mouthfeel and flavor for a summerís eve.

Oberon is so good. reminds me of my summers when I was still in high school. Me and my friends would drink this stuff 3 or 4 times a week. Its best when poured in a cold glass & you should also stir all the sediment into the beer. It adds cloudy white goodness. This beer tastes kinda like sweet bread. The bells yeast is so tasty. It also has slight citus notes. This isa great warm weather beer.
