From Midwest contributor Richelle..
You know summer’s on the way (even if you are still wearing a down jacket) when you see that bright yellow and orange sun smiling at you from the other side of the bar!
Bell’s Oberon Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. 5.8% abv.
Appearance: Foggy golden color with just enough frothy white head to let you know that you are drinking a fresh beer!
Aroma: Wheat, Citrus, and a bit of spice
Taste: Citrus is the main flavor here, followed with that tiny bit of spice you smell and a wheat aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Light and crisp. Not at all chewy as one may expect from the cloudy appearance.
Drinkability: Goes down fast and smooth, with a wheat aftertaste apparent. I’m not usually a big wheat beer drinker, but this American style wheat is one of my favorite beers. It goes down nicely without the overpowering citrus pucker typical with Hefeweizens.
Best Enjoyed With: A sunny day, good friends, and light refreshing foods. The flavor and style of this beer is best kept away from heavy, overpowering food. Enjoy it with fruit, cheese, fish, poultry, grilled veggies or all alone.

I agree with Bill Murray, oberon does taste different than it did perhaps 4-5 years ago. I recommend the two hearted and hop slam varieties. my personal favorites.

I question the credibility of the reviewer. I was there for the tasting, and “cleansing the palate” with shots of Jager bombs wrung out of a bar rag in between each beer is technically not standard in gauging a beer’s taste. However, she is hot, so perhaps this should be overlooked.

A few years ago this was a great beer. I think they changed the recipe a little, although they deny that happening. I no longer like it from a bottle but it tastes alright on tap. Bell’s Nut Brown is probably their best beer.
