Bellís Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with Bellís 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.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2008 Draft, at KBC, Oct. 20, ’03. Cloudy, good color but no real head. Lemony flavor, certainly spritzy and refreshing. KBCís taproom, the "Eccentric Cafe," though, leaves a little to be desired. Exposed brick just makes it seem cold, not much crowd (of course it was football Sunday and they had no TV). Seemed to be run by artsy college students.
Re-rate: Draft, 2006. I found this on tap at Wishbone, a Cajun restaurant in Chicagoís West Loop, right across from Oprahís studios, as it turns out. Was able to enjoy it much better here. Nice orange body again, very hoppy and spicy nose. The first taste hits both Saaz and lemony flavor of a wheat beer. My impression is revised upward.
Bottled. Aug. 18, 08. Batch #8613 My first "official" Bell’s purchased since they came back to Illinois: Pours amber-yellow with a fizzy white head. Smell of lemon with a touch of cider, some yeast. Hazy. Toasty malt and wheat flavor, a little citrus taste. Lacks the spiciness I find with other American wheat beers. Orange character arises later on. No distinct hop impressions. Actually a little heavy for summer swilling, but I just bought this sixpack in mid-August; it’ll settle in nicely for fall.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured hazy orange, nice white head but no retention and n o real lacing. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Taste is a little acidic, some alcohol, some floral notes, wheat and yeast. While Iím not that impressed Iím not really disappointed either, nice drinkable beer.

Pleasant mild bread aromas. Hops contribute some citrus flavors. Slight touch of spice - some mild clove. Hazy light to medium amber color; sparse off white head. Mildly sweet; mild bitterness. Light to medium body; slick texture; average carbonation; medium finish with bread, citrus. Overall a pleasant summer brew (a wedge of orange does work well with it), but nothing especially complex or too distinguished.

Bottle. Cloudy, straw-yellow pour with a small frothy head. Leaves some film. Mostly orange peel and hay in the aroma. Flavor is a little sour, mostly citrus and wheat. Good example of the style.

Had this brew at Comerica Park in Detroit. I had heard good things about this brew, and having the Two Hearted Ale in the past, I knew this brewery was quality. Very good refreshing Ale, with a bit of a Hop bite to it. Purchase and you wonít be disappointed. MB

poured out of the bottle. Hay and hints of oranges in the nose. Rich yellow with a slight copper hue, decent haze and frothy white head that retains health for quite a while. Medium mouth feel for a wheat with fair carbonation. Was expecting a little richer texture to match the haze visually. Nice crisp grain flavors with slight hay and good amount of fruitiness. Good wheat ale for the summer season.

Like a much better version of Blue Moon White Belgian. This is a bit more sour and yeasty, but also smooth and mildly sweet.
