Finally sampled the bottle I've had on hand!

A - Poured from undated bottle, though first batch, to a globe. The beer pours a deep amber/mahogany/red color. Good lacing. Little head, perhaps a 1/2 finger. I was told by one of the brewers that this was intentional. Interesting.

S - Excellent aroma. Very fruity with citrus and melon and tropical fruit character, together with a strong oak flavor. Very complex and yet simple.

T - Less intricate than the nose but still very good. Similar to the aroma in that the fruit character comes though first but not as powerful as the nose: citrus and melon flavors. Mild bitterness. A lot of hop character as well as strong yeast tones. A nice sweetness. The alcohol is hidden very well, I almost had to try to detect it.

M - Medium bodied and decently carbonated.

O - Very good. The only downside is that it's a bit flat, but again I was told this was the plan. Either way very good. Recommended.

A - Pours a deep red-tinged brown with one finger of head. Head dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing.

S - a funky sourness in top of a huge citrus aroma.

T - very hoppy for a wild ale. Initial tart punch is quickly overtaken by a huge citrus hop character. Almost like a sour black IPA. Still pretty enjoyable. Finish is very oaky. Not like any wild ale I've ever had, but interesting and quite good. Finish also has some lingering citrus.

M - medium/light mouthfeel with a dry, tannin- filled finish.

O - interesting take on the style. I think a bit less oak would make this better, but I enjoyed it as is and would have another.

750ml bottle. Pours a reddish amber with no carbonation. :(

The aroma is earthy brett and fruits with some wood and tea-like spices.

The flavor is sweet fruits and funky brett with a little tart sourness and someastringent tea spicing. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with no carbonation.

Overall, bottles are known to be hit or miss in terms of carbonation - unfortunately this one was a miss. This is amazing when it's good. Draft version is great. Odell did a voluntary recall of bottles, but I kept my 2 becuase I liked the beer.

Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl.
L: Pours chestnut with a thin white foam collar. S: A little funk, chocolate, fruit, and malt.
T: Starts malty sweet with traces of fruit with some balancing tart and hop.
F: Medium body, soft carbonation.
O: this is a decent wild ale but not their best work.

I love sours and wilds. I was extremely excited to try this beer after standing in line for a bit to get it.

Light funk on the nose smelling of unsugared fresh yogurt and light fruits. Yep, its a sour! It surely carries through to the taste. No alcohol presence with light sweetness followed by a mild acidic sour bite all over the palate and puckering tongue. As a sour lover I was not dissapointed by this beer. It wasn't as much of a mouth puckering kick in the face as I like but it's a great example of a sour.

A - Deep amber/brownish color; half-finger head with considerable retention and lacing.

S - Fruity/citrus/oak combination. Rather sharp. And lovely.

T - Some bitterness on the front end. Finishes nicely. Decent hop edge with a tad bit of sourness. The surprise was pineapple which adds a nice touch of sweetness and complexity, along with the oak which is more prominent. The alcohol comes through just a bit and mixes in well.

M - Medium, edging toward full, body with just the right amount of carbonation.

O - I tried this beer when it was first released, about four months ago. Didn't make a huge impression. Just tried it again a few times over the past month and it has obviously aged very well. Fantastic.
