Slightly cloudy, amber-colored, with a heavy lacing that sticks to the side of the glass. Smells fruity and citrusy. Even some bubble gum. Taste has citrus hits and is slightly bitter. This could pass as a sessionable IPA. Finishes clean and dry with some sweetness. Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. This is a great lake beer. Overall, the label is a bit offensive, but this is a good beer.

Beautiful, 1 inch head of foam upon the pour.

Piney hop aroma with a little bit of something else...something slightly sweet, maybe a bit wheaty?

The hops are the most pronounced thing in the taste as well. It's mostly piney, with just a small hint in the middle of something a little fuller, a little richer, and a little wheatier than a traditional IPA. The bitterness stays in the mouth for a long lasting finish.

As it warms I get a bit more of the bubblegum/banana/clove I expect from a wheat beer, but the characteristics of the wheat are definitely muted and overpowered by the hops. It's there, but it's faint.

We crack the tops on a pair of bottles, pour a brew of rich golden copper into our Bell’s Weizen glasses. It holds a two finger head of pillowy French vanilla colored bubbles, showing great retention. At thick sheet of lacing is left around the glasses as it slowly dissipates. No haze or sediment is noted until the dregs of the bottle throw a bit of murk into it, while carbonation appears to be active. The nose gives brown, pale, and clean wheaty maltiness, along with freshly tart citric hops, florals, and nectary hop sugars as the base. With warmth things blend, and include further notes of tannic teas, lemonade sugars, metallic yeast, light boozy wisps, and lighter caramel hues. Our first impression is that it isn’t as sweet as you would expect from the nose, or as tart with citric puck, but it is well balanced throughout and highly refreshing. As we sip, the taste opens with pale and powdered wheatiness, cane sugar sweetness, Smarties candy zing, bitterly earthy and citric hops, herbal root, bitter lemon rind, phenolic plastics, and honeysuckle florals. The middle peaks with coppery metallics, smoother herbal hops, biting yeast, oregano spiciness, green twig sappiness, bready yeastiness and toast, chalked wheatiness, and green tea leafiness. The end shows a nice blend of toasty brown, caramel, and bitterly wheaty malts, blending with soy sauce, lemony citric hop juiciness, bittering herbal and earthy hops, surprising boozy burn to the tongue, and general planty freshness. The aftertaste breathes bitterly, with tree sap, green grass, muddy mineral, wheat bread crust, raw sunflower seed, biting citric and earthy hops, baker’s yeast, light pale toast, and distant mallow sweetness. The body is solidly medium, and carbonation is medium, but froths up quite a bit when swirled around the mouth. Each sip gives nice slurp, cream, smack, foam, and pop, and the mouth is coated evenly, only to dry into a light and chalky pucker, with astringency streaking across the hard palate and tongue. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks excellently.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this beer was its fresh and zesty aroma, and its ease of drinkability. Here, the hops are forward enough to pass as your typically sticky session IPA, but with warmth the wheat and complexity start to boil out and settle in. This remains true through the flavoring as well, with a surprisingly intense hop profile that moves between citric bitterness and metallic herbal and earthy bite. They seem at odds with one another through the entire glass, but do find harmony independently with the hearty grain base. This beer certainly delivers on the hops, but almost so much so that you lose a bit of that wheat by the end. Odd Side delivers yet another refreshing and sessionable ale that certainly does linger a long time on both the mind and the palate.
