COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Pours a nice cloudy apricot color with a very fluffy white head. Aroma is up front with some barnyard, manure, citrus, oak, light vinous notes, clementines. Flavor has some good funk, yeast, oranges, leathery flavors, some tart qualitites mixed in with the sweet yeasty flavors. I think this version is better than the original version.

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.

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.

There is so much going on in this beer! The flavor profile is extremely complex. There is apple, grapefruit, a hint of a Rose wine, some barrel is slightly in the taste. There is a earthiness to it as well, some sourness from the lacto. Overall wonderful beer. Wish I had another to enjoy later. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a cloudy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour fruit and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer and good for another large round number for me.

750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear golden amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of oak, vanilla, spice, citrus, horseblanket and light white wine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of oak, vanilla, spice, white wine, citrus and lighyt horseblanket with a crisp dry lightly tart lingering oak finish. Not bad but WAY overpriced!!!!

Bottle Courtesy of Dak. Really enjoyed this much more then others it seams. It has a really funky earthy feel that is reminiscent of a rustic farmhouse ale. Some booze and sweetness but not overly so. I like it!
