This replaced my years long favorite.

Serving Type: Bottle, but poured into a glass with the last little bit swirled around then poured in. Follow the instructions on the bottle.

Appearance: Lighter in color than most Wheat Beers, almost like Blue Moon but much cloudier.

Smell: Lots of banana tinged smells, very sweet smelling. You can smell the hops they used more so than say Boulevard Wheat.

Taste: here is where I wish they had a 6.0-Amazing rank. This beer is over-the-top good with taste. If you like wheat, white, or Belgian beers, this is for you. Congrats Odell Brewery, you have created a beer that is sweet, thick, has many flavors ( not a boring wheat beer) and is super drinkable.

Mouthfeel: Very thick throughout, very satisfying.

Drinkability: A must try.

2.5 finger hfoamy head with decent retention for a wheat, nice lacing on a golden with slight crimson hues murky body.

S: a very nice sweet lemon aroma on a wheat and biscuity background.

T: lemon zest and wheat with a mild spice/peppery note. One of the more complete and full tasting wheat, nothing watered down about this one.

M: fuller bodied than most wheats, medium body overall and moderate to high carbonation, crisp and semidry in the finish.

Overall: Wheat beers are not my favorite but this may be the most complete beer in this genre I have had. I am ranking this based on its comparison to others in its field.

A - Pale, straw yellow, fairly clear, and quite bubbly topped with a thin white head with decent retention and fabulous lacing. <4.5>

S - Bananas and clove with a slight tart, citrus aroma. Overall very sweet. <4.5>

T - Playfully sweet and spicy at the front of the pallet that gives way to a hearty malt backbone with a slight alcohol flavor, but the spices remain constant. The hops make a brief and subltle appearance to clean out the finish. Sticky remnants of hop flavor linger in the aftertaste, giving way to the spices and a faint return of banana sweetness. <5>

M - Creamy, medium body, carbonation is very subtle. <5>

O - The clean finish and subtle sweetness makes this beer very drinkable and the complex, spicy flavor begs another sip. One of the better wheat beers out there. <5>

Bottle to tall pilsner glass.

A - This unfiltered wheat presents with a distinct and attractive cloudiness, which is contrasted against an orange hue. There is something very pleasing about an unfiltered light-bodied beer which creates a very earthy sense.

S - You absolutely understand the description of a yeasty nose with Easy Street. Very earthy and yeasty, supporting the cloudy appearance.

T - Extremely drinkable and satisfying taste that is very well-balanced. As a result of the yeast a very carbonated beer, creating a lot of action on your tongue upon first impression. The combination of slight dryness with a fruity hint is very satisfying.

M - The high level of carbonation generates a lot of activity in the mouth.

D - Drinkabilty for Easy Street is off the charts. The balance of this beer is accomplished by slight hints of fruit, dryness, earthiness/yeastiness, and carbonation. Perfectly balanced wheat.

All of the flavored are subtle: the citrus, the grains that taste like the came from straight from the oven. This beer has a body as strong as a well-drafted porter. Great with grilled chicken

Appearance: Poured a perfect, light, cloudy yellow hinge with a standard white head that built off around the edges and retained a fine cap.

Smell: Not too strong, not too light. A malty wheat prevails with subtle citrus tones.

Taste: The beginning was sweet with slight malt hints, but softly resonated the wheat; the middle dipped down into a mysterious sweetness, still encompassing the wheat tones; the end climaxed the wheat perfectly.

Mouthfeel: Perfect carbonation, very lightly creamy, but I loved it.

Overall: My favorite wheat brew to date. Easy going, Easy Street (to be specific.)

Appearance: She poured beautifully into a glass. 45 degree tilt for the first 60%, then aggressively at 90 for the last 30% of the pour. Once in a glass, this beers true colors were able to shine. Light, golden, with a hint of cloudy yellow. The head was egg white in color and full in shape.

Smell: Very light and crisp. The sent of wheat is apparent with a touch of citrus.

Taste: My mouth was met with a delicate sweetness derived from wheat and malt flavors. Taste was very consistent throughout; very light and refreshing. Enjoyed it to the last gulp. Left a gorgeous lace.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, and soft. That first sip, when the beer breaks the head, is flawless.

Overall: Top tier wheat beer. Elegant and straight forward, I loved it. Odell done good

From bottle to Glass. EXP date 9/11/13
