COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after a little blue butterfly found living on wild hops along the Front Range of Colorado. Delicate hint of banana and clove-like flavor, typical of a traditional saison, that flutter with a subtle spice character derived only from the hops used.

Draft in a sampler at the brewery. Pours a pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of bready and sweet malts, banana, floral hops, lemon and orange citrus, and mild spice, including clove. The flavor is mostly the same, with some dough. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bright, sweet, dry mouthfeel. Interesting saison.

I visited Odell in 2010. At the time I didn’t realize how good I had it. Pours hazy light pear with white head. Scent is fruity and sweaty. Taste is dry, sweet and sweaty. Nice and bubbly like a good Saison should be. Odell, please come to Georgia. Bottle - Brick Store Bottle Share - Decatur, GA

DiarmaidBHK (3418) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Draft at Krug Park. Pours yellow with a half inch of white foam. Leaves a bit of lacing in the glass. Fairly sweet on the tongue. Feels like a pineapples dipped in hop juice allowed to ripen. Whatever! Finishes clean. What it lacks it barnyard it more than makes up for in flavor.

Nice hazy golden appearance, and a lively citrus aroma. Let down just a little on the taste, seems a little soapy or something. Overall still not bad though
