Brewed with locally grown herbs and spices from The Gardens on Spring Creek, Trellis Garden Ale is a stroll through the garden in a glass – a sip of summer and a harvest of flavor. Coriander, cilantro, pineapple mint, lavender and rose petal bloom in this bright pale ale. Hoppy hints of citrus and fresh cut grass balance the malty sweetness and enhance the subtle floral spice for a refreshing finish. $1 from each bottle of Trellis Garden Ale sold will go to The Gardens on Spring Creek.

Wonderful golden-blonde color, head that's (almost too) good, very nice lacing and retention, and a healthy (but not obstructive) level of sediment from the bottle-conditioning. Really nice, expressive nose: nice elements of green pine-nettle, lemongrass, sweet basil, tarragon, and green coriander, as well as sweet white-pepper and thyme in softer tones. Very sweet flavor—the pineapple announces itself less in tart qualities than a cooked, almost grilled tropical sweetness—with subtle grassy bitters and and touch of coriander-seed (alongside the top-notes of coriander-chutney, minus the ginger and garlic that gives such a concoction bite), but not as vegetal a taste-profile as one would expect following that herbaceous-ass bouquet. Mostly, there are impressions of arugula and parsley that lingers with the medium-heavy thickness, which is maybe surprising for the color, but not considering the substantial bottle conditioning and what tastes like additions of invert-sugar (but is probably the pineapple asserting its saccharine elements).

Solid effort, largely delivering on its garden-herb guarantees—though not an extraordinary great beer, which is what I generally expect out of Odell.

Poured a hazy light amber color with finger width foamy head. Retention is mild. Lacing is good. Cilantro and lavender predominate the aroma. I do detect the pineapple as well. Tastes like a garden. Cilantro, lavender (very strong) taste. Not really my cup of tea. Light bodied. Moderate carbonation.

Thanks to Tieman for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a murky golden-orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, spice, herb, mint, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, spice, herb, and mint flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of herb and mint bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with lots of interesting spice, herb, and mint characteristics all around.

Serving type: bottle.
