Had both in bottle and on tap. Oberon pours a cloudy, pale golden-orange color. Slight amounts of sediment in the beer actually look inviting rather than scary (like pulp in your orange juice). Thin, wispy white head that leaves decent lacing on the glass. It's hard to get a powerful nose from this stuff, but what you do get is full of orange zest, mild clove, mild cooking spices, a tad of grain, and a bit of wheat. The taste is very closely tied to the smell - nice and robust for a wheat-style beer, backed with a citrusy-orange peel flavor and a nice kick of spice that hits about halfway through and lasts til the end. Hops are present, but faint and come out near the latter half of the taste. Some graininess is also present, but not overpowering or notably predominant. A hint of clove can also be detected from nearly start to finish. Medium-thin bodied with a soft amount of carbonation make this beer easy to drink.
Oberon is a great summer time wheat beer with a somewhat unique flavor profile for this style. A solid choice all around.

I had this beer a few years ago at a cool little cafe in ohiopyle after a day of rafting and/or hiking. it hit the spot on a hot day. it is refreshing and light but with subtle hoppiness that lets you know its a bell's beer. thats all i remember about this brew but will revisit it this summer. i like pretty much all bell's beers.
