The beer is light in body and mild on hopping, but is not wimpy in taste. The yeast we leave in adds a delicate floral and citrus flavor and enhances the beers mouthfeel.

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 Dogs In Heat Wheat and New Belgium Sunshines, all vying for the eager palates of more discerning youth. When I do meet the occasional college student whose interested in trying a beer thats a step up from the average keg available at the nearest frat house of debauchery, they seem to lean towards the wheat beers. I hypothesize that its 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 its 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.

heemer77 (5313) - 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.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - NOV 29, 2005
The bottle poured a slightly hazy light yellow beverage with a small white, fizzy head. The head was mostly diminishing and left little lacing on the glass. The aroma was slightly earthy and bready with notes of citrus. The body was medium-light with lively carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started off slightly sweet with definite bread and earth presence. There was also some citrus in the background. The finish was medium-long and somewhat bitter.

amalsugar (41) - Tremonton, Utah, USA - NOV 6, 2005
Light golden color with haziness. Good head from the tap that lingered for a while. The aroma was citrusy but not overwhelming. The flavor was good with a slight maltiness and wheat flavor present. Mouthfeel was pleasant with a bit of yeast flavor present in the aftertaste.

thegreenrooster (4101) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Pour is a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is yeasty and lemon. Citrus also is most of the flavor and also some breadyness. Sub par at best for the style and there are better out there.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 15, 2005
In the bottle from Cost Plus. Cloudy pale yellow with a serious white head. Good lacing and retention. Has the aroma of citrus and wheat. Smooth and drinkable with some lemon suggestions. Nice quick finish. An OK wheat for those looking at that kind of beer. The six I just bought may have had some age on it. Perhaps they brew this year around?

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Tap at the brewery. Nice hazy body with a ring of bubbles. Taste-mercifully lacking the usual banana flavor associated with wheats. Husky, yeasty, very slight cardboard with some light skunk.
