Second entry in the Oddland series. Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber with tiny particulates much like pear juice. One finger white head with great retention and lacing. The aroma of fresh pears and spices was noticeable at arms length while pouring, inviting. Aroma in the glass is more spicy, with cardamom, hot peppers and saison style yeast. Flavor quite floral, with mild pear juice and dry saison style yeast. Finishes with an unusual dry, Asian hot spice bitterness, almost like allspice. Light to medium bodied with nice carbonation. An Oddlands ale indeed. Slightly unbalanced with the spicing kind of taking over at the end, but still enjoyable and unusual flavor progression. Finish is dry and sharp like a Biere Brut, but spicier. The finish has some curry elements. I would have liked to have tasted the bright pear juice as dominant in the flavor as the aroma, but this was still enjoyable. I tend to like Elysian's experiments in skating to the edge of flavor, and this one is in that category.
