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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pour is dark hazed amber with a tight off white head. The nose is a balance of wood, Brett, and fruit. Wood is most forthcoming with apple skin, light mushroom and tannin. Taste is much less balanced, stronger malt undertones, brighter apple skin notes, musky mushroomy brett, fairly powerful tannic flavor. Very strong carbonation, light body, semi dry finish with a tinge of booze but not too much for the alcohol content.
