A Golden Ale created by blending the final recipe with its own barrel aged pilot beers fermented with wild yeasts and lacto. Each individual barrel contributes a unique flavor from the wood chosen and the cultures resident to achieve the subtle complexities that develop(ed) over time. A beer which starts sweet, filling the mouth with fruit-like esters and mild spiciness, changing to a tart and lingering flavor reminiscent of apples and grapefruit living amidst an earthy, citrusy hop aroma. 42% aged in wine barrels 58% Ale

750 ml bottle to snifter (thanks Daknole). The bottle says this is 10.5% (not 9.4%). Looks good; a cloudy orange with white head. Smells spicy and funky with some hop notes. Tastes like it smells, but a little busy. Good mouthfeel though. Enjoyable.

Really nice offering from Odell once again. Pours hazy copper / orange with a dense off-white head. The aroma has sour apples, tartness, apricots, mild vanilla/oak, wild yeast bugginess and earthiness. Medium full smooth body with lots of gentle flowing carbonation. The flavor starts with far more influence from the wine barrels with both wine and oak aspects. There is lots of red wine, berries, fruitiness, vanilla and wild yeastiness. The finish is a funk fest for being just released. There is aso dry red wine, toasty malt and different sour aspects. Great beer.

Sampled on 10/1/2012 at Odells Brewery. This wild ale pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, sweet, orange and tropical, with some wood and some tartness. A medium to full bodied wild ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, with some tropical flavors. The hops are earthy. Mild carbonation. Touch of wood, some funk, and some white wine. Nice balance. Hides the alcohol very well. Nice blend of sweet, fruit, wood and tart. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.
