Notes: Loaded with our unique blend of açai, guava, and elderberry, and balanced with a delicate addition of Himalayan pink sea salt, this beer pops with a bright ruby color and a refreshing tart finish.

Can poured into pint glass. Date stamp 11/24/20. Drank on 6/18/20. My first venture into this Wild Ale style of beer, purchased as part of ODell variety pack. I think this may be an acquired taste, not even sure how to rate it. Light, notes of strawberry with a tart finish. Well carbonated. Could see it as a refreshing summer ale. It’s an interesting change of pace.

Poured from a can into a tall fluted glass. Cloudy pink color. Nice white head initially which dissipates to nothing quickly, no lacing. Pleasant fruit smell and taste. Flavors of raspberry, strawberry, and lime.

Not something I will buy again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: pours a completely cloudy and opaque reddish pink color with minimal head.
Aroma: Strong aroma of guava, papaya, and tart berry. Some red wine too.
Taste: Strong elderberry. Very bitter. Followed by tart fruit. It is salty too. Between the bitterness, tartness, and salt, it's somewhat difficult to appreciate or identify the fruit flavor. Much easier in the nose.
Feel: Minimal to no carbonation. Drinks flat like juice. Moderately sweet. A little disappointing, as I think it could benefit from some carbonation.

Overall: Not overly impressed by this sour. The flavors are interesting, but the bitterness and tartness outbalance the flavor. Plus, it drinks completely flat. +1 for the interesting fruit flavor combination, but otherwise I won't be returning to this one.

LOOKS: Pink Grapefruit juice with a finger of creamy foam. Nice lacing down the glass.
AROMA: The only thing I would have guessed, blind, about this brew is the salt content. Tart. I probably would have said grapefruit added. It does have a very unique smell that is fruity and maybe a bit fleshy.
TASTE: Again, fleshy and very fruity. Salt is there for sure. Had I not read the can description, I might have added, 'something tropical.' Nothing grapefruit about the flavor.
FEEL: Thin body, but, not like a 'lite' beer. Dries up slightly on back end. About average carbonation. Pour it very slowly if you want a big fizzy brew.

L - Looks the part in its rosy-like murk and opacity. Good cling to the tulip, with lace, for a 4.5% beer.
S - Nice aroma of fruit, bruises and sour (as I like to call the whiff), a little yeast whiff
T - Falls off really quickly, barely a sour impression, no fruit to speak of, like a light smoothie with no taste really. Huh.
F - Decent carbonation, but drinks like a thick LaCroix seltzer.
O - Meh, have had better from Odell.

Pour is an unusual hazy rose color. Lazy ascending bubbles along the side. Just over a finger of white crackling head dropping into the beer. Had to bump up my number for some nice glass lacing.

Smell is a bit like musty berries that were left sitting out for just a bit to long. Maybe even damp dirty laundry? Not to cool on the smell, or my sniffer is broke.

Very tart on the tongue with this one. Almost like one of those sour/tart candies the kids like. Real hard to pick out a certain fruit over another. Lots of clashing. Definitely can find the guava. Okay now got some acai and I do get a hint of salt with that tartness. Seems extremely complex on the taste, kind of like a wheres Waldo thing.

Mouth feel is nice and light. The carbonation really bounces on the tongue almost giving it a sizzle. finish is very snappy and crisp with just a bit of that lingering sour tart in the back of the throat that slowly slides down. Like the mouth feel!

This one has some winners and some detractors. At first the pour seemed a bit odd but came to fit this unusual beer. The smell just don't do it for me. The taste seems so complex as I play with that lovely sweet/tart flavor I seem to be trying to pick through it to isolate what is coming through on my radar. The mouth feel is really fun and almost playful and really helps the beer play with that sweet/tart mix. My only real slight is that odd musty smell. Anyhow Cheers go out to ODell Brewing for a very interesting beer. If you like the style I would say you should try it!
