Brewery: Bell’s Brewing Co, Kalamazoo, MI
Beer Style: Summer Ale
I don’t like summer beers. They’re just too light and fruity for my tastes. But, I absolutely love Oberon. There is just something about it. Now that it’s available in cans, this will easily become one of my favorite golfing beers.
I always find myself searching this out (thankfully I can get it pretty easily) every late spring/early summer when it’s released. I just wish I could be up in Kalamazoo when Oberon Day happens… I’ve heard it’s crazy!
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.
