12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but should be fairly fresh. Pours hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with inedible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, peach, light pine, floral, grass, wheat, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of hop and malt notes; and good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, orange rind, lemon zest, pine resin, floral, grass, wheat, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Good amount of spicy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pine resin, floral, grass, wheat, light caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Good balance and complexity of citrus hop flavors; with a light-moderate malt balance and some light cloying pine bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very good hoppy wheat ale. Good balance of citrus/pine hops with a light-moderate malt balance; very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: a deep brownish orange. fairly hazy. about a finger of an off white head that leaves a bit of a lacing behind

Smell: bold citrusy hop. some minor wheat notes. very hoppy

Taste: a slight wheat start up quickly overtaken by a strong hoppy bite. the hop flavor is citrusy and resinous. very bitter

Mouthfeel: medium body. strong bitter lingering. not as refreshing as I prefer wheat beers mostly but definitely good hoppy bite

Overall: a very hoppy wheat ale. the wheat definitely takes the back seat. but in terms of a hoppy beer its a strong one and a drinkable one. Keep rocking out the bottles Odd Side!

$2.19 single. Bottle date is scratched away, but I'd go out on a limb and say this isn't more than 2 months old. Poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance: A really hazy dark orange color -- darker than I was expecting. A light, soapy-ish tan head floats on top and is about two-fingers for awhile before staying at one. Very nice lacing.

Smell: Decidedly hoppy, but with some malty character to not make it overwhelming. Earthy hops with a sort of sweet citrus smell as well.

Taste/feel: Outstanding beer. I tend to dislike most beers that are under 5% because I tend to find that they lack much flavor/character, but this one is fantastic. A wave of sweetness and juiciness on the front of each sip, with a nice hop bite on the finish to make this drink like a wheaty IPA. The wheat character isn't gushing in this one, which I like, because too much of a wheat flavor often times turns me off on a beer.

A session beer if there ever was one.. I love the sweetness on the front and then the smack of bitterness almost immediately after. This may actually be my favorite from Odd Side.

Bottle poured into a weizen glass.

A- Purchased as a single without the pretty blatantly racist label. It initially pours a clean copper body. A swirl and yeast dump clouds things quite nicely. 1-1/2 finger , khaki head. Light-moderate carbonation. Awesome stick looks like a tightly wound web or lace. Pretty good head retention.

S- Very hoppy during the pour. Grapefruit mostly. A sugary-sweet backbone gives the impression of candied grapefruit zest, those citrus chews that are shaped like fruit slices, or even juicy fruit gum.

T- It drinks much like an IPA. Tons of grapefruit, though on the sweet side. I always added sugar to a morning grapefruit as a kid. This brings me back there.

M- medium carbonation. A lot of hop bite. Quite dry.

O- Another difficult to rate beer, because it's so outside of the general style guidelines. Not bad, but not a real American wheat either. I'd put it up there with a Gumballhead or Lagunitas. Those seem to rate higher for most users, but I'm kind of an American Pale Wheat traditionalist, for better or worse.
