Odd Side -Grand Haven, Mi
"A derisious wheat ale with a hoppy finish that lingers long time"
Chill haze runs throughout the burnt orange body but when backlit shades of sunset orange take over. The dirty white head grows to a finger in height and becomes incredibly dense as it slowly settles to a thick cap. Sticky lacing decorates the glass.
There is a lot more caramel in the nose than I expected. I'm afraid this one is past it's prime. Tea leaf hoppiness and a squeeze of lemon join a more pronounced jammy orange but like I said, there is a lot of malt present in the nose of this beer, although the sugary jammy notes smell solid.
Tea leaf hoppiness hits right off the bat as well, too bad. For such a low alcohol beer there is a heavy dose of caramel, it's not overly sweet but the flavor is there. Orange marmalade comes through mid-palate and adds a nice touch. There's a decent bitterness on the finish.
The body has a nice softness and sits just below moderate in weight. It feels a little to light at times. The bitterness hits in the middle and lingers after each drink growing to a nice firmness toward the end of the glass.
This beer is past it's prime, which is a shame because I can see the flavor profile being inviting if it were fresh. Jammy, bitter, caramel, and easy drinking would make for a solid beer. Unfortunately, this particular bottle is a shell of its former self.
