3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that steadily receded, down to a thin scattered film with a small collar and fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt, mild grassy hops and a sweaty yeast with a note of citrus (lemon) and a touch of honey.
The taste was a tad sweet and a bit grainy with hints of honey and citrus pretty much throughout, with the finish having a strong yeast presence and a light hoppiness towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time following the swallow with a citrusy and slightly bitter yeast taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was a step or two beyond light in body and watery in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall this was a pretty basic Wheat Beer that had a good flavor and a really good drinkability, most definitely would make a great summer BBQ session beer...
355ml can from Binnys Kenwood. Pours a hazed blonde color, fluffy white head. Aroma is light and non-descript. some creamy wheat and slight herb, musty, oatmeal. Flavor is grainy and doughy, some herbal character, sweetness. I’m not into this at all, like drinking dough, not pleasant. stevoj (5868) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 13, 2017
Can from Boise Co-op. Very subtle what beer, as in, barely there. Light golden body, skin of head. Faint grainy aroma, white bread. Taste too is bready, wheat. It does have a nice texture though, not enough to salvage this. Frank (4257) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2017
These days, I expect wheat ales to basically be APAs but this is in the old school American craft style and quite refreshing. It’s cloudy orange in the glass w/ an ton of thick patches of lace after the first few sips. There is a bit of soft fruitiness to this and quite a solid malt presence once you taste it. It’s quite full and creamy on the palate but a good prickle of carbonation keeps it from feeling sluggish. Some sweetness brings out a hint of lemon hops in the finish. This is a really well done beer overall, not aggressive but subtly spicy and flavorful. IndianaRed (5121) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 9, 2017
Can, hazy light yellow. Typical light wheat beer aromas. A bit more sharp hop flavors that I expected. Bold flavors, soft wheat bready trailer. Not Bad dlihcsnatas (819) - Temple, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2017
Cloudy yellow with small fast fading head. Smells of grain and tropical fruit but the taste is grain with a strong tartness that is not very good at all. Two more bottles of this in the sampler so maybe after drinking the other nine beers these will taste better.

From 12oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a hazy orange/yellow, thin white head. Nose is sugary, sight malt, wheat, nutty. Taste is light bodied, sweet. Finishes crisp, simple easy drinking beer which is definitely the intent. sPOKEtacular (29) - - MAY 29, 2017
Out of the new cans from liquor store. Pours cloudy with nice big white head. Excellent flavor and palate.

A great summer wheat beer, perfect for the backyard grilling season. I'd pick this one again

Jason didn’t want to take his two leftovers from a 6-pack home, so I brought them back for me. Didn’t know much about the beer, but I knew that Odell has some quality stuff.
Poured a medium-to-straw gold yellow hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. For the style, excellent uneven foamy lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.00)
Smelled cloves, a touch of banana, maybe banana bread, caramel, grass, hay, corn, unknown spices and even cantaloupe and/or melon. (Smell - 3.75)
Taste followed the nose nicely. This is very nice and refreshing. Cloves, honey, grass, hay, corn, bready yeast, cereal, peppery spices, lemon zest, faint Circus Peanuts candy, banana bread and some caramel malts. (Taste - 4.00)
Light body. Oily-to-thin texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt, refreshing finish. (Feel - 4.00)
For the style, this nailed it. Very good. (Overall - 4.00)
