The Odell Brewing Company is in Fort Collins, Colorado. Odell is one of my favorite breweries. They make consistently high quality and tasty beers.
This is Odell's combination of a Belgian kriek (cherry) beer and a framboises (raspberry) beer. The beer ages in oak barrels with cherries and raspberries. It is 6.5% ABV. The beer pours dark pinkish in color, tinge of brown, with champagne-like carbonation and a champagne-like head of white fizzy foam. The aroma is tart and fruity, large on cherries, light on raspberry, and oaky. The taste is tart cherry, cherry, oaky wood, a touch of earthiness, hint of raspberries. There is loads of fine, champagne-like carbonation. The finish is both tart and dry. This is a delicious interpretation of a kriek.
Odell basically never disappoints, and this is a great representation of its style.
