4.06/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a beautiful amber (crimson red) pour with 4 fingers of foamy off-white head. cork made a nice loud pop sound, which hasn't happened with any other odell 750's i've opened up. a wonderful aroma of brett, apples, pears (cider-like scent), slight citrus orange-like, almost a cedar scent coming off. a strange vanilla flavor coming from the mix of brett with the oak which is wonderful, mixed in with that funky pear/apple flavor which is nice and subtle, a sweet malty backbone, and some caramel.
medium in body with pretty high carbonation. pretty refreshing.

a very nice beer overall, great use of brettanomyces to make an amber ale way better than it should be. slightly tart, would've been even better with lactobacillus added for some sour notes. either way, this was definitely worth trying. just noticed the heavy abv on the label.. honestly it feels like 5-6% beer.. it is very well hidden!

2.74/5  rDev -27.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2

Dark amber in the Orval chalice with swirls of foam and very light lacing. In the mouth, however, this stuff is alive with carbonation. Smell of leather and spoiled citrus.

The initial sourish taste is rather off-putting. I worked hard at savoring the confusion of flavors. The rather severe bitter finish doesn't seem like much reward. Any malt flavors have passed over to the great beyond. Sweet and sour with a harsh woody edge. Sweet pickled crab apples with a dose of fingernail polish sums it up.

I have enjoyed quite a few Brett-brewed beers, but this isn't one of them. I think there are some bacteria that went to work on this and the aged result is less pleasant.

From the corked and caged 750 ml bottle bought at Grapevine Liquors in Denver.

3.5/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bomber into a sifter glass

Appearance - dark rich crimson color. Lots and lots of carbonation give this a great head with a great lacing.

Smell - quite tart up from followed by a rich malty vanilla smell. I also get woody earth tones

Taste - tart right out of the gates, but then really an off taste to follow it up. Tastes like burnt wood at the very end.

Feel - Very very carbonated and that off taste does not leave your mouth.

Overall - I had this beer right when it first came out, before I was on BA, and remember it quite different. The yeasts in this guy sure did a number to the beer and it wasn't something I enjoyed.
