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.

I purchased a case of this on sale at Westy's (Camp Hill, PA) for $27 to take to a Labor Day picnic.

I tried one this afternoon and I thought it was pretty good - easy drinking and tasty with no real aftertaste. I had some "everything" sourdough pretzels with it and they were a perfect accompaniment.

Pours a semi cloudy light orange with a thin white head. Nose is citrus, wheat, grass, slight caramel maltiness. Mostly light fruit upfront in the taste. Sweet orange, lemon zest, wheat yeast strain. Sharp bitterness / tang throughout the mouthfeel. Becomes dry and chewy in the finish.
Overall, a pretty good summer sle offering from Bells. Very fruit driven, abundance of orange zest and standard wheat ale backbone give you a Michigan summer.
