COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bellís Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with Bellís 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.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Pours hazy/cloudy yellow gold with a big white head. Yeasty/wheaty aroma with slight citrus. A little too bitter for the style. Not the most impressive of the Bells lineup.

Bottle, marked with "6276". Tons of suspended sediment in the body, wish I had poured more gently! Thin white head. Burnt cookie and overripe banana in the aroma. The flavor has a very strong yeast component for obvious reasons. The carbonation and spicy hops make for a very lively mouthfeel. The beer has a brief bready sweetness but itís quickly eclipsed by the yeast and strong hops. Has a herbal, bitter finish. I think the hops are way to strong, they hide whatever nice wheat characteristics might have been in the beer. Also, all the yeast in my glass probably contributes to masking the malt as well.

This beer pours just like any other wheat beer in appearance. Small, diminishing head. Cloudy. Subtle aroma and flavor can best be sescribed as soft. Nothing special but nothing objectionable either.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Tap - Cloudy and very light in color, small white head. Very mild in taste and aroma. Slighty yeasty - not my favorite Bells beer.

A wonderful summertime beer. Terrific by itself, improved with a squeeze of lemon. Important to serve in a glass, as you should properly mix in the malt residue at the bottom of the bottle. Cloundy golden color, wonderful nose. What a freshing summer been should be.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2004
Slightly murky yellow. Wheat, lemon, and citrus on the nose. Flavour is bright and sweet lemon with ginger. Balanced sweetness with slight sour from the lemon presence. Nice unique flavour but for some reason it didnít overly impress me.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2005 Nice summer brew! Smells like freshly cut grass. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Taste is hoppy, citrusy and spicy. Sweet malt. Medium/Light mouthfeel and body.

sethdude (706) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Pours a cloudy, gold color, spot on for the style. Nose is of floral hops, a bit of sweetness, and a solid note of hops and yeast. Flavor is more hoppy than typical American Wheats, and there is a great bitterness here that is not too common in the style. A very welcome change to a style perfect for summer.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2006 As much as I love Bellís, this isnít my fav. beer of theirs. I like it, but one six pack a year is enough for me. Great cloudy, organgish color and an interesting spicy, wheat aroma. Still, one of the best beers on a hot midwest day.

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Cloudy with lots of yeast floating in a medium golden, honey colored beer with an white head that is retained. Aroma is quite sweet with expected wheat aroma, but not the banana and clove I look for. Flavor is quite tasty and mouthfeel is creamy in a good way. One of the really good summer beers.
