Odell had a tap takeover at one of the local bars in town, and boy was I excited! They had a list of 8 beers that they tapped, but the two that I tried and had never had before were Odell Celastrina Saison and Odell Loose Leaf. To begin, we’ll start with the Celastrina.
This beer was excellent and oh so delicious! Served in a tulip glass, the body is a
beautiful golden. There is a significant amount of lacing. It tastes sweet with a great amount of floral aromatics. It’s a smooth beer that finishes wet. You also taste a sweetness of banana through out and a little bit of spice from some nutmeg or clove. Great beer.
The second beer is Loose Leaf. First off, I’m a huge fan of the graphic design! But onto the beer. This is supposed to be an American Pale Ale. It pours a very crisp, clear yellow. Think pilsner. In fact, I think it kind of tastes like a skunky pilsner. I’m honestly not a fan of it. Not enough flavor or hops in it. It’s got an earthy taste to it and proves to be drinkable, but I like my beer with some more flavor. However, if you are out in the heat for a long time and wanting to drink a keg of beer, this would probably be a good choice.
