Excited to try this because I really like Odell Brewery.

Serving Style : 12 oz glass bottle, poured for appearance.

Appearance (4) : Beautiful honey colored body with a thick, fluffy three finger head. It recedes very slowly to a two finger head much like a sunset on a summer night.

Smell (4.25) : The aromas are all there. Lots of spice. Spiced hops, candied orange, and fresh wheat dominate the beer. Faint pinch of alcohol. A tiny touch of blueberry. Wheat beer in general is simple - and that's what this smells like. There's nothing I'd add or take away.

Taste (4) : This beer is fantastic. So rich, smooth, "warm". Very bold flavors. Woody. Heavy orange and lemon peel. Spice, hops, some light coffee bean. Faint blueberry. Slight fruity and metallic bitterness at the end that dissipates into a bready finish.

One negative I'd have to say are that it's heavy on the citrus peel, and is a little tinny, which can be a little distracting from the overall wheat bread taste. It's a commonality of the style though, so I won't penalize the beer too much.

Mouthfeel (3.5) : Creamy, medium bodied, small bit of carbonation. Finishes dry on the palate with a quasi-syrup feel. Like pancakes in the morning. Refreshing. I do wish it had a yeastier finish, that would knock the score up at least a point.

Overall (3.93) : If someone shows up to your house with a six pack of Easy Street, you know you have a buddy for life. This person/persons knows beer, and you should be grateful for that. This is a good wheat beer - impressive even, and when a beer makes you say "mmmm", you know it's grand. Of course I'll never deny myself a wheat beer unless it's truly horrible - it's hard for me to knock any beer of that style. I'd say Easy Street comes up above average in wheat beers overall.

Sampling right now on 7/17/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F and poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a cloudy gold in color with a good 1-finger white head that settles down to just a small amount around the sides of the glass. Spotty lacing is seen with even a ring or two actually at first. The aroma is of wheat and grains. The taste is about the same with a good amount of wheat coming through. This is a good wheat that gets better with each sip even. Clean and crisp. No bitter or harsh aftertaste at all. Perfect carbonation. A tasty wheat beer overall
