Bottle: Light copper color with plenty of beige head. Nose is sweet, citrus and caramel. Flavor is a bit of a letdown after reading through the label and all of the ingrediants used. Malty, light citrus, and caramel. Just a trace of honey. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice enough brew, but it tastes more like a softer version of Mirror Pond than an artful collaboration of regional ingrediants.

750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Served at cellar temperature. Pours an enormous white head, with extensive lacing, over a very effervescent, slightly hazy gold (SRM 6) body.....nose is pine, light citrus, apple, pear...taste is light sweet, with touches of pepper, light fruits including pear, apple, finishing slightly sweet but with attendant phenolic spice bitterness....mouth feel medium to light, alcohol hidden, carbonation very high with continuing frothy head. Although this has been created with a melange of ingredients from a wide geographic area, it works. What has been created ends up being a Belgian Golden Strong Ale. It meets the BJCP criteria of that style almost to a "T". While this style is not the best of the Belgians, it still is more interesting than "Specialty Grain" as a title. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Pours amber orange with a white head. The aroma is light citrus zest with some viney hops. The flavors of orange citrus hops with some sweet and tang notes on a medium body.

Huhzubendah (2262) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Shared by raveskdr. Thanks Chris. The beer is golden orange hued and mildly hazy with a quarter inch of head. The aroma brings citrus, toffee, malt, booze. A bit sweet with a touch of honey perhaps. Alcohol presence is there throughout. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Overall, I thought this was ok.

dcschiller (2201) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine Scottsdale. Pours a hazy straw color with nice off-white head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma has resinous hops, florals citrus and a bit of wood. Taste is sweet malts with some honey sweetness and finishing bitterness. Medium bodied with a slick texture. The oak is noticeable and distinctly Odells in flavor. That is the same oakiness is found in several Odell?s beers. A nice idea from the brewer and one that I enjoyed more than their other offerings.

unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Poured a medium reddish-amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of toasted rye, caramel, citrus and some fruity. Tastes of toasted rye, caramel, and citrus

ElGaucho (2161) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2012
750 ml bottle. Belgian yeast evident in the aroma with hints of brett and higher alcohol. Really nice nose. Hazy gold color with some visible carbonation. Frothy, small bubble, off white head that lasts initially but fully erodes by bottom of glass. Rich, higher alcohol flavor and very carbonated mouth feel. Good amount of sweetness. Full bodied flavorful beer that’s a winner.

Gription79 (2157) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Poured from a 750ml bottle. I found this to have fruity notes. There is a slight tartness, some grain, lots of tropical fruitiness. Very interesting.

Awkwardly sweet and muddled beer with some fruit and caramel and other flavors that I cant place. Finishes fruity and perfumey sweet. Odd and kinda boozy.
