look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours with a large head that lingers but eventually lays as a thin white covering on the beer, which is a hazy, deep golden color. Aroma is pineapple and wine with a fair amount of alcohol. Surprisingly subtle on first taste, medium bitterness in the middle with a moderately complex finish. The Riesling flavors come out strongly as it warms. Mouth feel is dry with good carbonation. Very enjoyable, experimental ale from Odell.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a hazy, orange-golden body with a thinning, near white head.

Smell: A sweetish, honeyed nose that comes across as playfully juicy, with the white grape addition, but there's also some soft, subtle hints of pear, banana and melon.

Taste: Sweet, honeyish taste with seemingly a bit of wheat and biscuit to it. A blend of lemon cream and white grapes with, like the aroma, very mild accents of pear, banana and melon. Lightly spicy midway, hint of grapeskin. Not much assertiveness from the oak addition, really. Still some settling sugars around for the fruity, sweetish finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: A nice and pleasant enough beer, though I'd prefer it a hair more drier and effervescent.

Pours a hazy golden color with a thick foamy head. Great head retention and lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeasts, cloves, maybe bananas. Slightly oaky. Again, taste consist of Belgian yeasts, bananas and cloves. There is a spiciness to the taste. A mild wine aftertaste. Medium bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation.

Clear slightly orange tinged golden body.
Light an crisp on the palate delivering those grapes, pale bready malts and some oak essence.

A: poured into a pint glass to a clear yellow with a three finger dense white head that retains well and leaves good lacing
S: smells of clean maltyness with some grapes and oak
T: taste is cracker like malt, oak and some nice grape flavors. no hop bitterness to speak of. swallow is more oak and grapes with some lingering malt sweetness.
M: medium on the palate with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel and a refreshing finish that's a little drying.
O: Kind of simple but the execution isn't bad. It's an enjoyable drink but this one loses some marks due to not really being to style.
