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.

"Another AWESOME higher abv saison from Odell. Must be sumthin in the water! Oddly, I thought this one was more hop forward than the one they claim to be, but these hops are earthy and spicy as oppsed to fruity and citrus. There are still hints of tropical fruit, as well as banana and clove. Just a delicious brew on every level."

Anice example of an American brewers attempt at a classic elgian beer. Aroma was full of Belgian yeast esters. Light golden color, good head retention as expected. Subtle use of spice. Could have definently used more spices as the yeast seemed to be the dominate flavor. A very drinkable beer,

One of my favorite beers. As far as saisons go, this beer nails. Pours golden yellow with a slight cloudiness to it. Incredible floral and fruit scents. The taste is crisp and smooth.

750 massively pressurized bottle, always nice when the cork pops itself- Pours very hazy golden with a huge head, three quarters of the glass at least was foam, slowly reduces leaving a ice cream like appearance. Aroma is strong in clove, pepper, yeasty, banana. Taste is exceptionally smooth, creamy, banana and clove up front, followed by a nice spicy peppery aftertaste, subtle sweetness rounds things out. Body is medium and carbonation is very bubbly and champagne like. Wonderful beer, perfect for a summer barbecue or a fancy dinner.

750 bottle, startes out with a nice head that quickly settles away, leaving slight lacing. Pours a cloudy pale orange. Sweet lemon orange aromas followed by some clove and spices in the background. Mildly sweet balanced by hop bitterness. A collection of a variety of fruits, pears, lemons, oranges, bananas, very tasty. Nicely cabonated with a satisfying palate. A long dry and fruity finish.

This was an okay saison though not the best offering from odell. Dry and floral with a subtle citrus and pepperiness.

This is quite good! It’s more on the lemony, floral, yeast side of a saison. The clove and peppery nature is really faint. The carbonation is up there where you’d expect it. The finish is nice with no detectable flaws. Doesn’t have the funk of other saisons, but hey. Solid and drinkable...lotion, more lotion...your feet are like a prehistoric riverbed...

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2013 750. Somewhat faint aroma that has a hint of sourness. Hazy yellow body with plenty of carbonation. Lemon notes. Having this right after Lucid Silo saison. Very similar. This one has more lemon, more alcohol and perhaps more of an authentic Belgian flavor. Very good but struggling a little to determine if its worth 4x the cost of Lucid Silo. Quite carbonated.

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
