BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Odell Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A Golden Ale created by blending the final recipe with its own barrel aged pilot beers fermented with wild yeasts. Each individual barrel contributes a unique flavor from the wood chosen and the cultures resident to achieve subtle complexities that develop(ed) over time. A beer which starts sweet, filling the mouth with fruit-like esters and a mild spiciness, changing to a tart and lingering flavor reminiscent of grapefruit living amidst an earthy, citrusy hop aroma. Define flavor for yourself in this constantly evolving liquid expression.

Drank this years ago; from my notes:

Light orange color; very murky.

HUGE head; bountiful lacing. Careful pouring this!

Nose is of white wine. Taste is of apple juice & white wine, with notes of oak. For all that, this is pretty easy to drink and better than expected. An enjoyable diversion.
