4.8/5 rDev +25.3%
Appearance: She poured beautifully into a glass. 45 degree tilt for the first 60%, then aggressively at 90 for the last 30% of the pour. Once in a glass, this beers true colors were able to shine. Light, golden, with a hint of cloudy yellow. The head was egg white in color and full in shape.
Smell: Very light and crisp. The sent of wheat is apparent with a touch of citrus.
Taste: My mouth was met with a delicate sweetness derived from wheat and malt flavors. Taste was very consistent throughout; very light and refreshing. Enjoyed it to the last gulp. Left a gorgeous lace.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, and soft. That first sip, when the beer breaks the head, is flawless.
Overall: Top tier wheat beer. Elegant and straight forward, I loved it. Odell done good

4.8/5 rDev +25.3%
Appearance: Poured a perfect, light, cloudy yellow hinge with a standard white head that built off around the edges and retained a fine cap.
Smell: Not too strong, not too light. A malty wheat prevails with subtle citrus tones.
Taste: The beginning was sweet with slight malt hints, but softly resonated the wheat; the middle dipped down into a mysterious sweetness, still encompassing the wheat tones; the end climaxed the wheat perfectly.
Mouthfeel: Perfect carbonation, very lightly creamy, but I loved it.
Overall: My favorite wheat brew to date. Easy going, Easy Street (to be specific.)

I took a chance and had a bottle of Easy Street with dinner tonight at Circle 7 in Ballwin, Missouri. Poured a pale golden with standard head and lacing. A very drinkable beer; however I was struck by the complete lack of body. The start and finish is clean and light, but nothing in between. I can see this as a session beer in hot weather, easy drinking and refreshing, but I don't think I'll seek it out.

Another bottle from the family trip to Missouri; glad to be seeing some Odell again.
A little over two months before the best-by date (“7/19/13A”).
A: Color is a pale, slightly hazy gold, with a mound of crisp white foam on top; typical for the style. Spotty retention and little circles of lacing here and there.
S: A fruity, spicy aroma that’s undeniably wheat, notes of sweet lemonade, clove, coriander, and juicy orange peel. Quite aromatic, and very pleasing. Estery yeasts (in the form of fresh banana) and husky grain fill the nose to the edges with wheat beer charm.
T: Unlike the nose, there’s not that much to the palate. Hints of lemon, orange, and a little clove blow through on a wave of timid, earthy graininess without so much as an extended greeting before they depart; in essence, it’s a clean, easy-drinking wheat with a very mild taste. Good to see some hops on the back, though, drying the finish to a respectable, slightly-astringent leafiness (keeps it from being too one-dimensional).
M: Very, VERY light, almost offensively so. The more I drink, though, the more I enjoy the texture in my glass – a slow-building frothiness eventually sets this one as “palatable.”
O: An oddly small beer that grew on me over time. That first sip, though – now that was a little too light for my tastes. Allow this one to warm up a little, allowing the grainy wheat notes to overtake what little bitters stick out when it’s chilled. In all, I think I can say that I like it for what it is compared to what it’s supposed to be, but nothing more.

Got in a trade with swingracex. 12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 4/25/2013. Pours hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear, light banana, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, grass, and earthy yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester notes with light hops; and good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, floral, grass, and earthy yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, and earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters; with a great malt backbone and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; wit ha moderately creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice wheat ale! Very nice balance and robustness of flavors; and very smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one.
