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.

Maxbier (408) - Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Very hazy golden with white head. Aroma is citrus and wheat. Refreshing, caramel malt, quite a bit of CO2, cereal almost chocolaty. Slightly grassy hops in the finish. This is one of my least favorite styles of beer, but I enjoyed this one very much.

czar (4687) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
pours cloudy yellow with a nice creamy white head, some retention and lacing. gentle citrus-grapefruit and crackling wheat, lean and fresh pale cereals, yellow skinned fruitiness, spicy peppercorns, lemon peel, dry wheatiness, hint of melons and pineapple, sulfur traces. average carboantion, light body - just a tad watery, dry and almost crisp and astringent herbal-grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. enjoyed!

Dacrza (544) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: August 10, 2014... GLASSWARE: Rare Vos shaker... OCCASION: Shark Week 2014 kicks off...with another mockumentary?!...APPEARANCE: hazy to the point of opaqueness; burnt yellow body; simple white head; little effervescence... AROMA: some pitchy yeast and bubblegum is planted in a malty base; gentle hops round out the profile ... PALATE: light body, slightly active; soft from tart to finish, barely suggesting an ale in the wheat; highly drinkable... TASTE: bright,slightly sou lemon and light malts; some pepper and clove arrive late;remarkably flavorful for a refresher...OVERALL: much better than Shark of Darkness, much to my disappointment of the latter; Oberon is crisp, remarkably balanced, and on par with Victory’s Whirlwind--a worthy case mate for Bell’s Two Hearted...

Beerathon (1291) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Exactly like the description by the brewery- spicy hop profile with some fruitiness, mostly bitter orange. Wheaty/yeasty. Decent, especially in the heat.

Sampled @ ChrisO after GBBF day 2. Clear golden color, small white to off-white head. Smell and taste malts, slightly cardboard, lightly vegetables, a hint of fruit peel, bitter. Average body, fizzy carbonation. Quite bad.

sudomorph (716) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at the Tilted Kilt Indianapolis. Pours a fairly clear, golden yellow with a thin, near white head that coats the glass. Aroma is slight traditional hops, and a bit of grain. Taste is balanced. Mild wheat flavours with a very balanced hop flavour. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Pretty clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall not really my thing. Faint aroma with a mild wheat taste.

Bottle from GBBF. Pours a hazy straw/gold with a white head. Light corn, light lemon, white bread aroma. Light body, medium to full carbonation. Lemon, light corn, light bread, light metal, grass... It’s fine. Solid, refreshing light bodied beer.
