    Brought back from the States by my friend, Skinbot. Pours a mildly hazy golden colour with a frothy, slightly off-white cap, decent retention and foamy lace. Sweet malty nose with the oranges kicking in, and some weird hop that does not fit well with the wheat. Medium-bodied with decent carbonation. Very light taste of bread, caramel and citrus. An average wheat beer that is not all that well-blended and lacking character.

    pours slightly cloudy golden color with a nice white head and decent lacing. The aroma is wheat, lemon zest, hints of spice. The taste is slightly sweet wheat malt, lemon, hints of tropical fruit, moderately bitter hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is medium body with moderate carbonation, crisp. Overall a nice wheat ale, crisp summer seeion beer.

    Pours a cloudy golden color. Smell is of lemons and wheat. Taste is wheat, tangy, some lemons. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall I found this to be a mediocre beer.

    I had this beer on tap at the Hotel Pfister in Milwaukee. This is another Bell's offering I have passed on a time or two - mainly because I am not a fan of wheat beers. This beer was pretty awesome and worthy of the praise. The wheat flavor is subtle and has a grassy backbone. I would not hesitate to buy a sixer of this - not only is it delicious, it is a dangerously easy drinker.

    A good ol' American style wheat. Another brewer which I find all over the place and this one is on the right end. A cloudy golden-yellow pour with a decent white cap. The aroma is mild wheat, yeast, and spices. The flavour was fruity, with notes of yeast, and a bitter finish.

    This has been one of my spring-time favorites, as it sprouts about this time of the season. Bell's Oberon is a fruitier beer, even served with an orange wedge, prevents scurvy. Pours into a glass as a sort of rusty-like, pale orange. It is bright and wet in flavor. The texture is fresh and finishes with a mellow smoothness that gently quenches parched throats and thirsty mouths.

    Orangish/yellow and cloudy with a nice soapy white thick head. Leaving a fair amount of lacing on the glass. Looks decent enough. Nice notes of orange citrus. Even detecting some floral hops. Picking up the wheat in the background. Nicely balanced. Getting some grapefruit and some orange in the taste. Only a small amount of bitterness coming in at the back of the throat. Just getting a slight bit of alcohol in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel was thin, refreshing, crisp, thirst quenching. Maybe only a bit watery. Very nice summer brew. Easily drinkable. Perfect after a hot, hard days work. This beer is better than most summer wheat type beers I've had.

    Pours a straw yellow that is slightly hazy with a tight white head and some lacing. Aromas of citrus, esp. lemon, wheaty malts, slight spices. Taste is somewhat zesty with the citrus upfront and a bit of grainy malts following, then a bit of bitter.

    Draft at Pinocchio’s into a standard pint glass Poured a hazy lemon gold with a modest white head. Lacing was ample and lasting. and lemon Nose was citrus upfront, especially orange, with some wheat and breay malt obvious as well. Taste started with sweet citrus moderated by malts and finishing with a crisp and pleasing bitterness. Mouthfeel was average for this style, lighter than medium with good carbonation. This was, like everything from Bell’s seems to be, a solid offering I will try again.
