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.

750 ml. bottle- Pours hazy golden with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is funky and sour, hops. The taste is wheat, a little funky, tangy, wood, hops, alcohol, maybe honey. Body is medium, carbonation is high. Overall I liked this beer, but the alcohol could have been better hidden, and it would have been nice to detect some of those New Mexico chilies.

Fun concept. Big honeyed Belgiany nose. Kind of like a quad. Gold with fading head. Cloudy. Huge malt and grain profile with some sweet citrus. Full bodied. A bit too sweet for me. Everything seems to be there if you are looking for it but not exactly complex.

TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle at a family tasting. Pours golden with some head. Flavor is very unique and sweet. It almost has a honey flavor to it. You can taste a lot of the different ingredients and it is quite complex. Surprisingly good.

RSRIZZO (2034) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2012
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Snifter at 41°. Color is a hazy golden with very active carbonation and a tall rocky head that just keeps growing. As you pour more into your glass a few chucky floaties show up. Aroma is fruity and a little sour with some yeast in the back. It has a lighter medium body that goes down with a crisp yet smooth mouth feel. Flavor is light with pear, a hint pf pineapple and just a touch of peach, then a little oak shows giving it a note of vanilla. The hops come in giving a nice floral taste and a little citrus along with a nice bitterness. After taste comes on slightly dry with a tart almost sour feel then the citrus comes back up. Overall its a great brew, big extremely complex flavor, yet light and easy to drink with a nice alcohol kick that is completely hidden.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle: pour is hazy orange gold with a massive white head. Aroma is sweet, honey and biscuity malt, apricot/ peach fruitiness, floral. Good body, floral and honey on the front, crackery/biscuity malt, hints of nutty rice in there too. Strange minerally taste in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[keg, Friends of Ham, Leeds] Extremely excited about trying this, on arriving at FoH I asked how much was left, and the barman replied there was plenty. Drank a few alternatives, then chose the Footprint last, out dribbles less than a third of a pint. So, I got (for free), the last part of the only keg in Europe of Odell Footprint. Opaque golden amber, with a large white head, it had a lovely aroma of orange barley sugar, straw, pine and leather. On the taste, sweet, slightly honey-esque with caramel malt, before a lot of citrus fruit, and then on the finish a peppery, metallic edge before the alcohol arrives. To be honest, I didn’t get much chilli other than maybe as that spritzy copperyness. Still, a great beer – no idea what prickly pear tastes like so we can chalk that one off. I imagine it featured in the overall thought of the beer – which was slightly coppery honeysuckle. Only complaint I have is that I’d like to have had more [18052013]

Beaver (1872) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2012
750ml bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a huge creamy bubbly white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is slightly tart tropical fruits, honey and wheaty malts with a little chili.

The flavor is wheaty malts, honey, vanilla and a lot of sweet tropical fruits with a hint of chili spice in the finish. The mouthfeel is fairly full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, it’s pretty subtle but a very well balanced complex blend. I like the malts and tropical fruits with a hint of spice. It’s very easy drinking and seems more like a 4% beer rather than 9.5%
