4.56/5 rDev +17.5%
Released - 5/18
Tasted - 5/22
750mL C&C bottle poured into snifter
A – Beautiful beer, bright honeyed orange in color. Head is big, fluffy, and bright white. Settles to a 1/4" layer and leaves great thick lacing down the inside of the glass.
S – Fruity, fragrant, and bright. Big lemon, wildflower, and light yeast notes. Hops make an appearance too, piney and juicy.
T – Lemon, spice, and yeast notes here. More wildflower honey sweetness, and crisp, clean hops. Has great complexity. Light banana notes come through here, as well as a clove/anise spiciness. Balance is impeccable.
M – Quite dry and champagne like, carbonation is high, but it leads to a tremendously crisp and clean mouthfeel. Finish is lingering and brings notes of fresh lemon, and pepper.
O – Great Saison, nice to see Odell try their hand at this style. It stands up to some of the best I've had. This one stands out for its great balance and depth of complex flavors, as well as for its noticeable hoppiness that is not found in others of the style. Worth seeking out.

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!

Poured from 750mL c&c into duvel tulip.
A- Pours a hazy gold, thin white head. Nice looking, weak lacing, head retreats to a white ring.
S- Light citrus and spice, subtle hop notes, not too overpowering.
T- Saison yeast spices, a little pepper. Some citrus comes in from the yeast as well as the hops. Tastes smooth, nice and dry finish. I could drink this one all summer.
M- light mouthfeel, carbbed nicely, the dry nature of the beer and the carbonation clean the hops from the palate quickly.
O- great offering from Odell. Looks good, and impresses more and more through the evening. I'm looking forward to drinking this one all summer long!

Jeepers, look at the foam! Big white cap on this guy. Lacing is sticky in spots. Foam settles to a flim and collar
Aroma: I just don't get the banana stated on the label. Clove, yes; nanner, no. A bit floral. Some light hoppy spice. Perhaps white pepper. A bit of lemon and papaya.
Flavor mirrors the aroma. Sharp citrus and green grass. Honeysuckle. Clove a bit, light biscuit.
I think I'd enjoy this beer more (and I do like it) if the slick feel weren't there. It's kinda oily or something. Velvet? No, maybe not. Not sure what it is b/c the bubbles and carbonation are fine. Just not as dry as it seems. What am I talking about? Someone help me out...
Good porch beer maybe with some hard cheese....mmmm...cheese

On a business trip, purchased in Sante Fe, NM and brought home to Virginia.
Poured into a tulip.
A very nice beer, refreshing yet complex. A saison with all the style’s characteristics well respresented. A beer I would definitely drink again. Did not finish the bottle because I gave my mother a sip and she wanted the remainder.
A – Pours a slightly cloudy pale orange with a 3-finger off-white dense mousy head. Well carbonated. Belgian lacing.
S – Fruity, floral, peppery.
T – Slight lemony tartness, faintly sweet, bitterness in the finish.
MF – Medium-light bodied, fizzy on the palate with a medium-dry finish.

Poured from the bottle a cloudy nectarine color with one finger of bubbly off-white head. Not much left behind in the lacing department.
Nice bright aroma of pineapple, tropical fruit, cloves, yeasty funk, and light cracker.
Bright and lightly-tart taste of pear and green apple along with white pepper, cloves, yeast, and table crackers. Flavor lingers thru the finish.
Medium bodied, dry and clean with a sharper carbonation.
This is a very tasty Saison from the folks at Odell. Bright, clean and delivers a flavorful personality.
