3.95/5  rDev +8.8%

A - Pours a deep red-tinged brown with one finger of head. Head dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing.

S - a funky sourness in top of a huge citrus aroma.

T - very hoppy for a wild ale. Initial tart punch is quickly overtaken by a huge citrus hop character. Almost like a sour black IPA. Still pretty enjoyable. Finish is very oaky. Not like any wild ale I've ever had, but interesting and quite good. Finish also has some lingering citrus.

M - medium/light mouthfeel with a dry, tannin- filled finish.

O - interesting take on the style. I think a bit less oak would make this better, but I enjoyed it as is and would have another.

750ml bottle. Pours a reddish amber with no carbonation. :(

The aroma is earthy brett and fruits with some wood and tea-like spices.

The flavor is sweet fruits and funky brett with a little tart sourness and someastringent tea spicing. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with no carbonation.

Overall, bottles are known to be hit or miss in terms of carbonation - unfortunately this one was a miss. This is amazing when it's good. Draft version is great. Odell did a voluntary recall of bottles, but I kept my 2 becuase I liked the beer.

I love sours and wilds. I was extremely excited to try this beer after standing in line for a bit to get it.

Light funk on the nose smelling of unsugared fresh yogurt and light fruits. Yep, its a sour! It surely carries through to the taste. No alcohol presence with light sweetness followed by a mild acidic sour bite all over the palate and puckering tongue. As a sour lover I was not dissapointed by this beer. It wasn't as much of a mouth puckering kick in the face as I like but it's a great example of a sour.

4.58/5  rDev +26.2%

A - Deep amber/brownish color; half-finger head with considerable retention and lacing.

S - Fruity/citrus/oak combination. Rather sharp. And lovely.

T - Some bitterness on the front end. Finishes nicely. Decent hop edge with a tad bit of sourness. The surprise was pineapple which adds a nice touch of sweetness and complexity, along with the oak which is more prominent. The alcohol comes through just a bit and mixes in well.

M - Medium, edging toward full, body with just the right amount of carbonation.

O - I tried this beer when it was first released, about four months ago. Didn't make a huge impression. Just tried it again a few times over the past month and it has obviously aged very well. Fantastic.

Yet another flat Odell sour shared by MbpBugeye. We really appreciated your intentions Seth, just bad luck I suppose. I really want to like these beers...

A - Flat, burnt umber color.

S - Smells dry hopped (cascade?), a bit of citrus in there.

T - mildly citric, acidic bacteria and strong bitterness. Some cherry meandering around, but in all a bit on the bland side. Lack of carbonation isn't helping though.

M/O - Flat. Ermm... Well, this had potential, but I think even with perfect carbonation this is one of the beers that sounds better on paper (or beernews.org) than it is in reality.

3.73/5  rDev +2.8%

Pours a clear amber with a white head.

Smells of tropical fruit hop character, grapefruit, and other brett-ish characters. Really great nose.

Tastes of brett up front with some hop character. It has the sour funk that is slightly tart but not overly sour.

Lighter body with medium carbonation work OK for the beer. It's a bit too light for my taste.

This beer has good fruit and brett characters with a great nose but the rest of the beer doesn't match up...it just doesn't quite mesh, though, not bad per say.

Pours a hazy, brown/copper color. 1/3 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong sour notes, slight sweet malt, and slight alcohol. Fits the style of an American Wild Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sour tartness, alcohol, slight sweet malt, and slight citrus. Overall, great appearance, decent aroma, body, and blend.

717th Review on BA
Bottle to OSWG
750ml C/C

Thanks to Spdyfire83 for this one!

App- A multitude of browns and reds in this glass. A ring of tiny bubbles around the edges but no head. A bit of a let down to me but a couple reviews said this was intentional.

Smell- A bit watered down tart and aciditic with some dampness and some cherry flavors and some oak.

Taste- Its above average but im still a little let down. This was a bit thin and small. The ABV is very well hidden and with this mostly some fruit and oak shine through.

Mouth- A bit thin bodied and low carbonation. A nice tannic residual flavor.

Drink- Well it was new and different. I dont get the yeast notes but much more of a red wine tannin note. Bottle says 0739, not sure if this is bottle # but I dont think I am coming back to this except on tap if I ever found it.
