Pours a weak, thin head. Color is a clouded yellow, with heavy sediment throughout.
Smell is yeast-like, with a heavy emphasis on wheat content.
First sip is very similar to that of the scent. The first quality that comes out in the beer is that 1. this is not a filtered beer. It's the flavor that comes from all the combined sediment that has developed in the brew. The second quality that comes out is that of wheat. It brings out the main qualities of the genre that most beers only add on as a garnish.
I've heard that as a beer, Oberon is basically Bell's flagship summer brew. And while it may not be my favorite genre of beer, I will definitely stand behind my loyalty to Bell's Brewery for making fine beers. Cheers to summer!

Beer pours a cloudy and hazy darker yellow. Some chunks of yeast can be seen suspended in the beer despite a careful pour. Head settles out to a thin collar.
Smells of wheat, citrus and a general yeastiness. Nothing sticks out too much.
The flavor begins with an initial smooth wheat flavor. No real fruitiness. Finishes with a fairly assertive hop bitterness. Bitterness is well short of a pale ale, but stronger than most American wheat beers.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side do medium bodied. Medium level of carbonation.
Straightforward American wheat ale with an enjoyable hop presence that leaves the yeasty wheat flavor intact. A good summer brew, but climbs up a bit in abv compared to many others in the same style. Not out of place though.
