Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Chouffe tulip. Beer was a dark, ruby red, almost purple color. Tiny head, quickly fizzes into nothing. Plenty of carbonation, no lacing around the glass.
Aroma was raspberries, tart cherries and a pinch of vanilla. Smells very tart. I like it already.
Taste was tart cherries, raspberries, vanilla, biscuit and wood. Starts off moderately tart and turns into a long, sweet fruity finish.
Man, I dig this beer. It's tart and just a touch on the sour side, but not overpowering. I don't mind overpowering, melt your face sourness, but this beer has a nice balance that makes it both tasty and easy drinking.
Well done Odell's. You continue to impress me. I hope you keep this one in your rotation.

750ml bottle into Jackie O’s snifter. Thanks Dave!
A: Pours a clear cranberry juice color with super fizzy layer of bubbles that disappeared almost as quickly as I pour. Very active carbonation.
S: Bright notes of cherries and raspberries (and cranberries) dominate the nose. The berries are tart and lightly sweet smelling. Dry oak barrel, lemon-like acidity, and tannic oak and fruit skins mix with the fresh berry tartness. This smells very dry and very puckering.
T: The raspberry seems to come through more than the cherry, but it is there. The oak barrel really shines and it adds a dry, earthy, woodiness to the fruit. I also get hints of lemon and also a mild sweaty funk. In the finish, I get tart berry notes that remind me of cranberries, and fruity flavors in the aftertaste are jam-like and slightly sweet.
M: Medium body with a thicker mouthfeel than I expected given the ample carbonation. The carbonation is soda-like but softer and fuller. Definitely smoother and heavier than I’d of thought. Drinks very well. Not as tart as the nose let on.
O: A clean and easy fruit sour. Fruit/oak flavors complement each other rather than overpower. Thanks again, buffs9!
