Ah yes, the newest brew from Odell...

A - Very light orange color with lots of yellows and whites... Nice foamy head rises and slowly falls. Some spotted lacing remains left behind. Brew is not too clear, perhaps age will help clarify. You can tell much of the coloring came from the wild rice, almost a purple tine was given to this brew.

S - Nice orange and hop spice slams your nose. Mild oak/vanilla speaks easy. The honey stands out as well as the wheat. The chilies are very well hidden.

T/M - Very nice. Sweetened very well, not sugary by any means. The pear is nicely meet by the honey and wheat. This is a wheat based brew with lots of unique intricacies... Heat from the chilies are unnoticeable, only slight flavor kicks out.the 40% in oak is a great benefit to this brew, the vanilla is mellow and much needed. Perfect carbonation and mild heat. medium bodied and awesome bold bitterness that bring your thirst back for more.

O - A very pleasant surprise. I wasn't expecting too much from this brew, but it finishes very nice. The label doesn't sell this brew, but the flavor and contents will. Awesome job to the guys at Odell! Highly recommended, grab one if you're able.

Finally got around to opening this one after sitting in the back of the fridge for the last couple months. Poured from bottle into large 25oz glass

A - Lots of fluffy white head on this one. Had to wait Great clarity with a brown orange.

S - Pineapple upside down cake comes first and strong. Get some citrus and crispness

T - Refreshing tropical crispness up front. Booze is present on back end, but not overpowering. Honey flavors come through somewhere in the middle, and blends in with the booze at the back

M - Medium Heavy Mouthfeel does well to cover up a lot of the booze. Medium levels of carbonation

O - Kind of has flavors all over the place, and has quite a bit more citrus than I was expecting here for a strong ale, but I would say overall I enjoyed the experience.

A: Cloudy apricot hue with a large, thick, and foamy, and creamy head that eventually fades to a 1/4 inch head; lacing is fantastic

S: It's difficult to tell for sure what I actually pick up from what I've just read about is in here but it's definitely grainy and a touch boozy and a touch spicy; pineapples, prickly pears, chilies, apples, black pepper, booze; this smells complex and awesome

T: This is grainy and fruity; hops and yeast are the stars here and although there is a subtle spice; the pineapple from the hops and the bready grains shine through; I also taste a boozy sweet-honey presence in the finish

F: Creamy, medium body--the yeast really creates a nice mouth feel

O: Such an amazing, complex beer; the alcohol is present but it isn't over powering; fantastic job O'Dell!

Shared a bottle with a friend. It poured a hazy amber with a very tall white head. First impression: a tasty mess. I'll concede that I'm usually a little dubious of beers with big levels of mixing like this. This one, however, doesn't seem to lose too much. It comes off a like a peppercorn tripel. There's a dry spy character with a touch of heat. Sweet flavors with a hit of light juice (maybe that prickly pear) pop in, but the dry, bitter cut of the beer overbalances them. The aroma has a touch of honey and a heavy floral spice that veers in the direction of Belgian saison. There's a high alcohol note in the aroma, but that just makes me want to get a second bottle to age. Overall, a complex beer that's quite tasty and a great choice if you want to sit down and think about your beer.
