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.

This wheat ale poured a cloudy, med/light yellow colour with a quickly dissipating head. To the nose there are scents of citrus hops, toast and corn. First sip was somewhat thin but lightly flavourful with flavours of corn, bread and a light citrus hop flavour. Finish was minamily bitter with the hop flavour lingering.

16 ounce can.....how have I not rated this? Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A big sweet fruity nose, banana, lemons. Very smooth, fresh lemons, dry biscuit malty base. A crisp tea like focus, like dusty wheat. Really quite nice. Super smooth. I could drink 6 of these easy. Finishes hoppy and citrusy.

12 oz bottle. One of the better wheat beers around without the usual dryness or yeast residue you;d expect from this type. Give it a try.

OnTheTrail (52) - Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2015 Aroma is lite and malty, a hint of hops. Taste is lite bread, with a bit of lemon. Perhaps I should try this again on a hot day - not used to being disappointed by Bells. ( note I was coming down with a cold when I rated this. Need to re-rate)

BlackHaddock (4692) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2015
22nd May 2015: bright sunshine on the patio but surrounded my dark thunder clouds here in California (at my daughters). 12oz bottle poured into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip glass. Cloudy body with an orange hue to the lemon colour, on top a snow white crown of tight bubbles. highly carbonated, like most beers in this style. Yeasty, citrusy and too cold initially. The wheat comes through very heavily in the flavours and dominated the taste. Refreshing and crisp in nature, but not really my thing. Scored objectively.

Drinking from the bottle. Not keen on the spicy aspect. without the spice i would like this more.

adasko (876) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 19, 2015
Niezbyt przyjemny słowdowy aromat z lekka siarka. Piwo niemal klarowne, złote, kiepska piana, niezły lacing. W smaku lekkie fenole i guma balonowa z przodu. W środku słodowość. Końcówka pusta. Brak posmaku, brak goryczki. Ogólnie mocno średnie.

GenDV138 (2870) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2015
4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Hazy orangish yellow with off-white head. Aromas of light citrus, wheat, malt. Tastes of citrus, orange peel, light wheat. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Nice easy drinking summer beer.

Chadski4 (160) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Beautiful sunny pour with a nice cloudy body. Aromas lacked a bit of the advertised fruitiness but the hoppy flavors on top of the wheat is a great balance.

Light golden color that is cloudy. Very little aroma and very little carbonation where I had it on tap. More of an American style wheat. No banana or clove flavors like a German Wheat. Slight spicy flavor with a bitter finish, though no hop aroma is present.
