Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Celastrina, or Hops Blue, is a tiny blue butterfly found living on wild hop plants along the Front Range of Colorado. Little is known about this rare species, but we hope to change that. Celastrina Saison pays tribute to this winged creature with delicate hints of banana and clove-like flavor, typical of a traditional Saison, that flutter with a subtle spice character derived only from the hops used. $1 from each bottle sold will go to the Colorado Natural Heritage Program to help fund research of the Hops Blue butterfly.

A-Pours a darker yellow. Mostly clear bodied. Big, sudsy head. Also the cork almost took out my eye when opening.

S-Smells a bit phenolic. Quite floral. Some banana. Also some apple juice. Lightly spicy.

T-Sweet with some grassy hops. Just as phenolic as the nose. Some lighter honey flavor. Plenty of floral flavors. Bananas. Some breadiness and finishing spice.

M-Medium bodied. Softer carbonation. A little bit creamy. Hint of booze.

O-Mostly tasty. Nothing groundbreaking here.

On draft at the Odell Brewery - June 2013

A - Golden, with clarity, 1 finger of head and some sticky lace left on the glass
A -4.75: Huge hop kick in the nose! Amazing bitter and sweet.
T - 4.5: Perfect well balanced DIPA. A little more sweet than bitter. Incredible taste
M - Medium bodied and well carbonated. Great on the palate
O - As good a DIPA as you will ever find. Clone this one, and pass it around. Well done!
