Bells never disappoints me, even with a style that’s hard to work with as this one is. Light orange/copper, hazy pour. White head that sticks around for a while. Yeasty aroma, thicker mouthfeel than normal for a wheat, which is nice. Strong malt flavor with the wheat very apparent. Good esters in the flavor, too -- lots of clove and banana.

Easy drinking blonde ale... Pours a clear blonde with minimal lacing and carbonation... Not much flavor, hop character, or maltiness... Definitely could drink a 6 pack and not have a buzz

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy and lively orange with a sudsy white head. Yeasty aroma and some light fruits but it’s not really in your face. Have to say this is an odd brew. This beer looks like it should taste way better, with perhaps more citrus character, but it falls short. Bells makes a ton of good beers, but to me this one isn’t one of their best.

Glass: Hotel glass (~1/3 pint)
From: A Chevron in Tempe, Ariz.
Price: $8.99 for mixed 6-pack
Purchased: May 15, 2013
Consumed: May 15, 2013
Misc.: Packaged on April 10, 2013
Poured a golden straw murky color with one finger of gray head that dissipated fairly quickly. Sporadic spots of thick lacing along the sides. Average-to-bad retention on the top.
Smelled honey, lemon grass, cereal, wheat grass and corn. A bit grainy overall.
Tasted much smoother than the smell. Got honey, wheat, lemon grass, cereal and some pale ale characteristics with a cleaner finish.
Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, watery, smooth finish.
A pretty good beer for the style. Nice for the summer. Happy to see Bell’s!

Better year for Oberon than last. A summer staple for any beer lover! A wheat ale begging for an orange or straight out of the bottle on a pontoon.
