A: The cork pops with a lot of gun smoke coming out of the bottle. Pours a slightly hazed pink/red color. A noisy and bubbly white head forms to about two finger, but fizzes out completely in a second.
S: Sweet berries up front, with a fleshy, acidic twang. Musty yeast and wood. Not a lot else I can discern.
T: A sharp acidic bite up front with the fleshy berry fruits again. Musty yeast, kind of muddled, old wood. in the finish. No real definition here.
M/D: A medium body that is super spritzer like. Champagne like carbonation. Kind of tannin like, a bit muddled and finishes dry. The the sharp acidic bite really makes this a slow sipper. It is a bit of a chore to finish the bottle.

Not one of Odell's better attempts, and there are way better American Wild Ales out there. A miss, from an all around great brewery for me.
