2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2016 Bottle poured into a shaker. Cloudy straw yellow with a thick white head and a lot of visible carbonation. Lots of wheat and a little yeast to the nose. A lot of wheat but mostly grass and light pine hops. A lightly hoppy aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation that stings a little. Not really what I expected and not in a good way. I must have gotten a bad batch because it is only slightly like what anyone else has described.

A great summer beer, spicy and delicious. It had been a few years since I’d had Oberon, and this years version seems spicier. Great beer for 90 degree days...........and its now available in cans!!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Gollem in Antwerp (along with 77ships), first time for me, though this is a classic among American wheat ales. Cobweb-lacing, off-white, moussy head over a hazy yellow golden beer with slight peachy hue. Aroma is unfortunately ruined by a lot of DMS (cooked cauliflower), which I am very sensitive to and which I did not in the least expect in a Bell’s; after this sulfuric odor fades a bit, I get green banana, soap, white bread, sugared pineapple, peach, mango, yeast. Fruity onset, bit estery with peach, pineapple and gooseberry impressions, medium carbo, supple malt sweet body with soapy and light sourish wheat, light hoppy finish with a somewhat herbal character but not as aromatic (let alone bittering) as it could have been - though like all wheat beer styles, American wheat is not characterized by huge hop quantities anyway, of course. And thus this beer ends mostly with malt sweetness, a bit grainy even, and on the thin side. I expected a whole lot more considering how great Bell’s other beers are and the DMS largely ruined this for me so this was the big disappointment of the day, I’m afraid...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml. bottle @ Gollem. Date says 03/02/16. Hazy golden, little white patchy head. Nose is big paper, some cardboard, there is low orange peel, mango, apricot, low grain,… Taste is bitter insecticide, herbal, paper, apricot, lots of paper, low cardboard, low esters & orange peel, tad bitter herbs. Body is bit dull, oily, paper. Not really getting the high score here, it doesn’t have a pleasant wheat base, hop presence is far too low, most bitterness and taste is paper and mothballs, meh at best this one.
