look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Tasted 3 March 2014.

Pours a lovely pinkish amber. Two fingers of fizzy pinkish-white head, sizzling down quickly and leaving little lacing (as expected). Thick column of bubbles rising up the center.

Smell is predominantly sweet, with fruity undertones and just a touch of tartness. Rounded, sweet fruits, filling my nose with honey and juice.

Taste comes through powerfully fruity but well balanced. Plays the sour-sweet line really well, tilting first to one, then to the other. Eventually it settles on sweet, but I love the acidic elements and the balance they provide.

Feel is outstanding. Medium-bodied, a little sticky. Prickly carbonation that is near perfect, causing the flavors to dance and play. Makes this beer significantly better than it otherwise would be.

A very enjoyable fruity almost-sour. The play of fruit and sour is lovely. And the feel is top-notch.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A- Pours a clean amber with a 1 finger dense head that lingers for a bit

S- Raspberries control the nose. Notes of vino and red wine. A mix of fruits that is difficult to decipher at times

T- Some acid, but not over bearing. Sweet berry notes until the oak takes over. Seems to lack any real intensity or clear direction. A bit spotty

M- I like the feel. Silky, yet slightly dry.

O- this one missed the mark for me. Love almost everything from Odell, but this one seemed like a tart cool-aid to.

$15 for 750 ml bottle
