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.

Wasn’t too impressed. Maybe I missed something. One of my bottles seemed to have a lot of something settled out. I thought that for a wheat it was kinda weak in punch for my mouth.

A nice cloudy orange color. A sweet, fruity aroma present. There is a noticeable bitterness this year, also oranges, coriander. Malt and wheat characteristics similar to American West Wheat Beers. I like Oberon but for some reason I enjoyed last year’s bottling a lot more than I do this year. Had on tap a couple times since my last rating...so refreshing. Good balance that I really enjoy.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2002
RE-RErate for 2002: The citrus finish is back! its the same as 2001 again. I don’t know about the bottled version yet. RERate for 2002: Gone is the citrus finish the yeast is now the major player(minus points) There is magic in this bottle. I don’t like wheat beers but this one is much different. The best place to drink this beer is on Mackinac Island in the summer. There is something about the smell of horse piss and the taste of Oberon that is magical. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2002
It has a light, cloudy yellow color to it. A light airy qualilty with bits of critrus and other flavors that almost make it taste like a light cider.

Typical cloudy wheat appearance, with a nice cider color. Good flavor with a touch of citrus background. Good head and nice lace.

Nice vaguely belgian tasting ale. Lots of citrus notes. Much better than say Ommegang in the same category.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2003 Bright orange-yellowish color with small suspended yeast particles floating around, has a small white head that doesn't last, light citrus aroma, light bready, malty flavors it leaves a flowery aftertaste.It has a very creamy and full mouthfeel, not as spicy and fruity as I remember, still very enjoyable and refreshing.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2006 Pours with a typical chalky and chunky foam which is dense and creamy. Aroma is straight yeast, hints of butter, citrus, marshmallow, and whispers of coriander. Flavors are again, yeasty, with an array of oaty goodness that coats the mouth. This has drastically improved since they’ve acquired their new brewing system and rigorous QC. Very good considering the dull style.

a decent wheat beer. good for the summer months. a little too much ’spice’ for me.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 30, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 Pours with a medium size head that slowly fades away. Huge unique aroma, that has several different light fruits in it. Slightly acidic/spicy taste. I drank it at cellar temp, but I can tell this would be a good beer to have in the cooler on a hot day. Thanks PsychProf!
