So I sampled and picked up a growler of this at Odell's. From what they told me they took the first runnings of their Easy Street and made a big wheat wine.
The pour was a mostly clear lighter copper color that was darker then Easy Street itself. A nice head considering it was poured out of a growler. The nose itself was pretty alcoholic with noticeable yeasty smells. Not much of a wheat aroma but a nice bold malty essence.
The taste was rather strong but the essence also is there. The phenolic and alcoholic flavors come out but not as much as the nose would indicate. A more balanced beer but the hops are limited. Could use more bitterness but with that brings out a nice body. Not much wheat flavors, but more like a honey or honey malt flavor that really stands out.
The mouthfeel is limited due to the strong malty presence that could be more balanced. Realistically this is a great beer that needs to be aged for a year or so. Too bad its just on the 5 barrel system and not in bottles so I can cellar it.
Serving type: growler
