Bell's Oberon Ale is one of my favorite wheat ales. I'm from West Michigan, so I have a natural affinity for this brew, but I've had lots of beer in my days (especially while attending Michigan State University) and Oberon will always be a favorite of mine.

It's smooth, dark pour finishes with a decently thick head and is accompanied by orange and wheat aromas. It has a slightly bitter and hoppy after-taste, but has a smooth and warm, yet slightly dry feel on the palate, which adds to its crispness. Accompanied by an orange slice, this 'American wheat ale with the color and scent of a summer afternoon' is perfect for accompanying warm weather and summer parties with your friends. Beware - the bottles aren't twist-offs. I would say that this beer is somewhat similar in respects to the orange-like qualities of the Blue Moon Belgian white, but surpasses it and others in its class and will be enjoyed by wheat-loving beer enthusiasts.

given to us by a neighbor from michigan (thank Lori and Mike)... they suggested drinking with an orange... though in some bars it's a lemon... tried orange... i can see it's good for summer, but no for me.

smells tangy, citrusy - 3

appearance - dark orange, hazy, nice thick head for a wheat... - 4

good mouthfeel - hard to distinguish the nuances of taste

bubbly and refreshing...

overall 3.5
