Pours cloudy dark yellow with a tall lasting white head.
The aroma was fruity with an acidc sharpness.
Sweet, tangy flavor, with some dryness in the finish. I prefer German Hefes, this isnít bad if you like the American style.

Complete Candy. You can so waysted youíll wake up in the middle of the night to discover the bed is wet. Good with and orange slice or some slut at the bar. I just saw it in 5 litre kegs. If I had money. Iíd buy everyone at the store. Alternate Oberon and Hieneken repeat 8 times and see what happens. Youíll hear crazy stories.

draught: what a beautiful looking wheat beer. creamy orange color with carbonation coming through the cloud of yeast. aroma was slightly fruity and slightly bitter. On tasting I could definitly tell that it was an american wheat because it really was lacking the fruity esters of its german counterpart. I did however enjoy the czech saaz hops. They gave is a delightful spice. Palate was great for a wheat beer. Not to thin and not to think. Overall, decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was actually quite enjoyable to drink. NIce bittersweet fruit aroma, with some wonderful citrus notes, reminiscent of orange rinds. Flavor has some nice toasty caramel maltiness, mixed with a light bit of cereal topped off with a banana. Has alot more body than I expected from the style, but then I think about Bells and I would think nothing less, and am never disappointed even when it is a style I do not really care for.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2007 8/05/2006: Iíve had this in bottles, but most recently I had it on draught. Darker orange in color, very cloudy, moderatly carbonated. Tastes and smells like wheat, a little sweet, good orange/apricot flavor. The draught version seems more mellow or something since it doesnít seem to have a hop bite to it. Another great Bellís beer!
22 oz draught, $4.95 at the Winking Lizard Tavern (Crosswoods). Rating 7 3 8 3 15 = 3.6.
4/02/2007: I had a couple pints of this on draught at Fries Cafe (Cincinnati, Ohio) during the Bellís Oberon Release Party... Bellís Oberaon has a cloudy orange color with a foamy off-white head. The aroma and flavor contain wheat malt, orange, and a hint of corriander. This beer has a medium body and the mouthfeel is nearly creamy. Bellís Oberon is a pretty good American Wheat, but it seems to be getting more and more like Blue Moon Belgian Wit everytime I have it. Actually, I used to hate this beer the first time I had it (it used to be quite sour and loaded with spices), but now itís drinkable... Rating: 7 3 7 4 14 = 3.5.

party can.(approx. 12 pints) Poured like a pub style beer engine. Very cloudy even for a wheat beer. Light caramel with slight orange tinge. Nice fresh bubbly head..;-) Started out slightly sweet with subtle citrus note. well balanced and refreshing. was less hoppy than tthe bottle, and much more wheaty. hope Bells can perfect the party can because the last 2-3 pints were extremely yeasty, and would love to try it again. Love oberon,but watch the yeast overkill. thanks

Pours out a clouy amber with a decent white head. Smacks of American Wheat. Iím often disappointed by the style but this one was quite satisfying. Citrusy, a bit of orange and lemon. Its light on its feet, crisp and quite smooth. I think its got a bit bigger body than most American wheats with just a hint of malt. Overall, A good summer beer.
