Bell's Brewery in Comstock, Michigan. I'm really enjoying re-reviewing some of the more well-known and loved beers after quite a bit of time has passed. I originally drank this beer back in April of 2009, so you can see what I mean. I entered the code from my bottle 9757, and their website told me "Your Bell's Oberon Ale was packaged on May 18, 2010". Very cool feature! The label describes this beer as "an American wheat ale with the color and scent of a summer afternoon". Sounds delicious!
Not a very powerful aroma, just faint wheat and orange. Orange and other citrus flavors kick things off followed by some bread and dough. Those malty flavors are then interrupted by some lightly bitter hops and spice accentuated by some prickly carbonation. Quite refreshing. The sweet and bitter flavors swing back and forth like a pendulum on your palate, never getting too far from center. A very balanced beer. Nice medium body with the wheat providing nice flavors and texture. Take your time drinking this beer. There are lots of little nuances that you can pick out with a little patience. Really nice summer beer. For sure try this beer!
