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.

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.

Frank (3809) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2003
Bright golden with a bit of haze. No head aside from a trace amount of foam. Aroma is yeasty, lightly fruity (peach?). Slightly buttery with a hint of cloves. Tart and fruity. Slightly too thick and sticky to be the true summer refresher this wants to be. Still, it's mild, easy-drinking, and quite pleasant.

Wheaty aroma with a small bubbly head. Poured golden with a slight orange color. It tasted bananas and a slight spiciness here

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2006 Good cloudy appearance with little head. Taste is simply wheat. Relatively little complexity. There is no banana on the nose or lasting spiciness like in other wheats I have had. Even as it warms it continues to be one dimensional. Refreshing but nothing to write home about. Re-Rate 5-06 On Tap. This is a very different beer on tap. Bready, full, creamy with light butterscotch sweetness. You can really taste the Saaz in this- nice spicyness. It really comes alive and is quite a refreshing summer wheat. Always a conundrum- do you rate the fossilized bottle version or the vibrant tap. Mine represents a mean.
