Bottle: A little cloudy light orange color. Decent white head. Wheat and citrusy aroma and flavor. But it had a funkiness to the aroma as well, not present in the flavor though. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Cloudy, peach color with medium sized, white head. The aroma is wheat, citrus with a faint metallic note. The flavor is orange, lemon, bubblegum and wheat. Mouthfeel is light and lively. Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 25, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly opaque orangish yellow, with an off-white head and semi-active carbonation. Thereís barely a scent; a sweet aroma at most. The taste is incredibly smooth with a perfect balance between the hops and the citrus taste that lingers within this great wheat beer. Itís medium-bodied, yet bubbly on the tongue, with a smooth finish as well. Ratman197 (14668) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2006

2/11/06 (bottle): Thought for sure Iíd had this previously, but guess I hadnít rated it yet. Poured a pleasantly bright orange-yellow with a nice yeasty swirl and a billowing head that quietly settled. Good orange-citrus aroma. The flavor was somewhat boring when I compare to some of the better American wheats Iíve had ... only a mere wisp of yeast or citrus ... just a mellow malt and a hint of the former. However, this is mellow and evenly balanced and I could easily enough take down a number of these without complaint.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2007 Wheat beers are far too easy to tread on, far too prone to excessive indulgence, and never properly imbibed. With that said, I rated the fairly far and widely available Easy Street Wheat, a direct Colorado competitor with Flying Dogís In Heat Wheat and New Belgium Sunshineís, all vying for the eager palates of more discerning youth. When I do meet the occasional college student whose interested in trying a beer thatís a ďstep upĒ from the average keg available at the nearest frat house of debauchery, they seem to lean towards the wheat beers. I hypothesize that itís the gentle and inviting flavor of wheat beers in general that permits the explorative nature of some to move beyond the plane of American swill. Anyhow, I had the Easy Street in a casual potluck type setting, to which it seemed well suited. The color is a dull and lifeless gold, filled with sediment that leaves nothing to awe at visually. The smell is also a simple front; the general wheaty characteristic smell with an insufficiently curative citrus outline. As for the taste, it is a simple metallic wheat blend, with the same plain lemon element. I imagine the Easy Street could be perked up with a slice of lemon, but overall itís generally a low quality wheat, especially compared to what is available on the market. Beer for dollar Hoegaarden will get the job done better, and it comes with a sense of European sophistry, which Odell is clearly lacking. Easy Street Wheat is a nice effort for a wheat beer, and probably a good stepping stone for the uneducated beer neophyte, but completely inadequate for the more experienced drinker or for anybody who has a lust for the unique style that is the wheat beer. zombywoof (467) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 19, 2006

Awesome...THE best wheat beer that Iíve ever had. Pop a slice of lemon in the glass and youíve got a great summer treat...although Iíd get this year-round. heemer77 (5355) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Cloudy darker gold with a hint of orange. The white head dissipates quickly. The aroma is canned peaches with some bread. There is also an earthy sweaty note. The taste has some light potatoes along with some light clove spice in the finish. There is a light hint of pears in the taste. A light crisp mouthfeel. A decent version of an American Wheat.
