Share This Review

Oarsman Ale is a German-style Berliner Weisse brewed by Bell’s Brewery, Inc., and for the purposes of this review, was served in a wheat beer glass from a can.


The Berliner pours a mostly clear straw color with a thin, bubbly white head that dissipates rapidly. The reduction doesn’t leave behind any lace or residue.


The aroma is faint with a light lemon scent and backed softly by wheat.

The palate follows the nose mixing tart lemon and wheat. The combination tastes somewhat like lemonade. Finishes dryly with a juicy bite of lemon.


Its feel is light, crisp, and effervescent.


The Oarsman Ale is easy on the palate and this thirst quencher makes for a pretty good session beer and is a nice representation of the style.

Recommended Pairings

Bell’s recommends the following food pairings with their Oarsman Ale: scallops, ceviche, lemon, fresh herbs, goat cheese, feta cheese, walnuts, pistachios, and Poutine topped with feta cheese; sweets of raspberry, blueberry, apple, and white chocolate.
