3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The pour is a dark, muddy, deep garnet color with a beige, pillowy, fizzy head which nearly all diminishing. The nose is amazing but a bit simple; nice lacto, tart cherries, some balsamic, toasted vanilla, toffee, musty yeast, toasted oak, slight chocolate. The flavor is nice as well still tart cherries and balsamic notes, lighter dry chocolate, some sweet toffee, dry oak and vanilla, and the same musty yeast. The palate is fizzy, more than medium, drying, and silly. The finish is drying with musty notes, balsamic, oak, and dry chocolate. A very nice dark sour with excellent oak notes to add complexity. The palate is a bit too fizzy to allow the flavor to completely emerge. Odell is simply just doing amazing work in their small batch beers. Nice.

Dark crimson, garnet, chestnut pour with a dense eggshell head. Balsamic vinegar, tart cherry, brett, funk, and earthiness in this one. Dark fruit, astringent, perhaps some unripened plum. Looks good, sounds good...just not very good.

Nice appearance and great lacing. Aroma is slightly medicinal. The taste is tart but a bit bitter. Cannot tell if it’s hops or astringency.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled on 10/1/2012 at Odells Brewery. This wild ale pours a very murky dark brown color. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, sweet and tart. A full bodied sour/wild ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, tart and a little funky. The hops are herbal. Nice tartness, its tart but the sweetness still shines through. Hints of wood and some funk. Not over the top, but it definitely has the Flemish Brown/red aspect to it. Some brown sugar at the finish. Very nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is lingering tartness.
