3.78/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly hazy darker yellow orange with a bubbly but plump finger of foam.

Grain/cereal sweetness and a bit of lemony/citrus fruity character.

Flavor has a little more depth than aroma, but still rather subtle and nuanced overall.

Light-bodied, medium-high carbonation, crisp but soft, sweet but rounded.

Overall, not quite what I expected after reading the bros articles which made me eager to try this, but tasty nonetheless. Though certainly not 'world-class' in my opinion.

12oz bottle, best enjoyed by 9/7/17
A - hazy golden hefeweizen colored body with a frothy white head
S - cracked wheat, a bit woodsy, lemongrass, yeast
T - earthy yeast, wheat, lemon and orange zest and pith
M - fuller body but still refreshing
O - I didn't seem to like this as much as the Bros did. I thought it was hood, but not great. I doubt I'd buy it again, although it is recommendable for the style.

Poured into a glass, murky tarnished gold with a two inch head that fade leaving lots of lacing. Smell of crackers, taste of wheat, citrus, banana, a bitter aftertaste. Easy drinking, thirst quenching.

Appearance: Cloudy medium amber with one finger white head and nice lacing.

Smell: Wheat, malt, some fruit.

Taste: balanced wheat with a malt finish.

Feel: Carbonation seems good. Smooth crisp unfiltered beer.

Overall: Long ago I used to love bud light golden wheat. This is that beer on steroids! Very good!

Head is a bubbly froth over the top with very nice lacing. Color is a beautiful golden yellow hue. Aroma is yeasty, yogurt, toasted wheat, lemon, lime. Palate is super light and frothy starting with a delicious yogurt custard richness fading into a sourdough wheat bread lemon emulsion with a refreshing bitter lime tang finish to contrast the rich buttery middle. Texture is very light and smooth with a crisp refreshing finish. Carbonation is big and frothy contributing to the light texture and doughy goodness. Pros are beautiful lacing and color, complex, refreshing, easy drinking, sessionable (4.5%) brew. Cons simple on the nose, kinda frothy and bubbly in carbonation, maybe a little out of balance towards the yeastiness. 92/100

Hits those darker in the shade golden yellow notes. The wheat doesn't obscure the clarity in this one so much. 1/2" white head. Good retention. Aroma of wheat.

This one really pushes the wheat and barley aspect. There's a lot of heavily hopped pale wheat beers, but this one keeps draping wheat all over the place, there really isn't much else competing with it taste wise. Carbonation is high. Mild citrus note behind the wheat.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Ridley’s Family Markets in Laramie, Wyo.
Price: $7.99 for a 6-pack (I think)
Purchased: Nov. 18, 2016
Consumed: Nov. 20, 2016
Reviewed as: American Pale Wheat Ale
Misc.: Best by Jan. 24, 2017

Jason didn’t want to take his two leftovers from a 6-pack home, so I brought them back for me. Didn’t know much about the beer, but I knew that Odell has some quality stuff.

Poured a medium-to-straw gold yellow hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. For the style, excellent uneven foamy lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled cloves, a touch of banana, maybe banana bread, caramel, grass, hay, corn, unknown spices and even cantaloupe and/or melon. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste followed the nose nicely. This is very nice and refreshing. Cloves, honey, grass, hay, corn, bready yeast, cereal, peppery spices, lemon zest, faint Circus Peanuts candy, banana bread and some caramel malts. (Taste - 4.00)

Light body. Oily-to-thin texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt, refreshing finish. (Feel - 4.00)

For the style, this nailed it. Very good. (Overall - 4.00)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clean golden with an average head of off-white suds, and little to no lace.

Aroma: Crisp wheat malts, caramel, and maybe a bit o’ honey or maple. Nice.

Taste: Malty and sweet, but not overly so. Hint of fruit and citrus hops underneath. A subtle and well-balanced, ultra-drinkable ale here.
