Odell "Shenanigans"
Odell Brewing Company - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
Wild Ale (ABV 9.1%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a murky medium brown with a slight ruby hue and an average (1-2 finger) light brown frothy head that reduced to a thin cap which lasted throughout and produced excellent thick sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a toasted grain malt and a funky Brett yeast with hints of caramel, green apple, overripe dark fruit (plums and grapes), citrus peel and bit of spice and a mild woody cask presence.

The taste was very malty and lightly sweet-tart with notes of caramel and dark fruit from the onset, progressing into a slightly bitter flavor with spicy sour presence and a woody alcohol ending. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a sour citrus peel bitterness left to linger for just a tad longer.

Mouthfeel was just under medium in body and dry in texture with a ticklish carbonation.

Overall this was a very unique tasting brew: a bit sour, a tad sweet, a touch fruity and a nice bitter woody finish. All this working together to basically create this very tasty and memorable brew...
