Pours a very nice yellowish color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, yeasty, spicy. The taste is malty, yeasty, spicy. Medium body, AVE hidden pretty well. Overall, a tasty brew.

This is a very light, yellow-orange hazy brew. The head is fluffy and white. Lots of cloudiness and the aroma has a spritzy, fruity, funkiness, along with a mellow light malt note. The taste is a bit more sweet and malty than typical for the style. Light brett, a bit of yeast, and lots of complexity. After a few sips, there is some warming. Fuller in body than expected. Very good.

A: I really like the bacteria/bug vibe going on on the bottle. Wish there was a born on date. Pours bright gold with a decent-though-slightly-below-average-for-a-Saison head.
S: A bit musty. Kind of muted. Am getting some barnyard.
T: Dry as a bone. Getting decent brett-y undertones. Not much juiciness on this very dry brew. Was hoping for a bit more complexity.
F: Light, but also hearty.
O: Always a fan of trying new brett and funked out beers. This isn't a standout for the style, but is a fun brew.

This redolent reddish-orange pours with two-fingers of sustained white froth. Brett, pineapple, white grape and green apple float nicely to the nose. Tastes of brett and more light fruits with a hint of sugar in the finish. Light to medium soft and dry as can be. There's some fruit peel in the aftertaste.

This might not be extreme enough for some, but it's about as well-balanced and flavorful as it gets in my book.

From a bomber purchased in Grand Marais into a shaker, while gazing out at Lake Superior. Pours a massive puffy eggshell head on top of a dark hazy pineapple gold. Nose is dank wet hay, overripe mango, lemon, and modest levels of Brett without being too funky. Pungent, but I don't get discernible layers. Some filling flat breadiness in the middle, some pepper, and some floral Bretty notes toward the end. A little sweet and funky on the finish. Lively mouthful but not crisp. Modest body. Stepping back, it seems like a promising beer, and Odell almost means guaranteed quality. But somehow, this one doesn't really grab me...still well crafted and I'm glad I tried it. It is on the pricey side.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Has a Belgium yeast aroma. More of a saison. Slightly grassy. Maybe apples? Good Belgian farmhouse taste. Very smooth aftertaste. Almost syrupy. Apple, pear?? Either way; very, very good.

Pours a hazed & effervescent bronze with a finger of ivory head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Sourness, grassiness, pears

T: Follows the nose, pears, figs, & apricot up front, some brett & grapefruit as well. Grassyness, grapefruit & brett funk as this warms, pear as well. Finishes with citrus, funk & a little dryness & some crispness

MF: Medium body, lively carbonation

Drinks fairly easy, plenty of funk & citrus

Pours a hazy, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong citrus, yeast, slight sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of a Saison / Farmhouse Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong citrus (papaya/pineapple?), yeast, slight sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, decent appearance, dominated by citrus in aroma and body, and a decent feel.
