Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, dark, orange-brown coloring, with a filmy, bubbly, white head. Nose of toasted grains, subtle citrus notes of tangerine, and hints of caramel. Flavors are citrus and candy sweet forward, with a toasted grain backbone. Highlights of tangerine throughout. Light, effervesced body, with a citrusy and grainy aftertaste. Smooth, light, crisp finish.

I'm just not a wheat beer guy, but this one was pretty good. Odell can pretty much do no wrong as far as I'm concerned, and they make this a good representation of the style. This is one of their most popular beers and I can see why.

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 (3.83) : 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.
