Great news from Odell:
Fort Collins, CO/mbb/. – On September 8, 2012, Odell Brewing will celebrate the release of The Meddler, a barrel aged Oud Bruin Ale and the brewery’s fifth Single Serve release this year.
Inspired by a resurrected style from the Flemish region of Belgium, The Meddler Oud Bruin is a blend of several generations of brown ales that were barrel aged for over 18 months. Wild yeasts, Lactobacillus, and Brettanomyces meddle with the beer creating complexity and depth of flavor. Intricate, yet balanced, The Meddler has an 8.9% ABV.
“At first sniff you get a caramel crystal malt aroma with hints of tartness,” said Brent Cordle, the brewery’s barrel aging manager. “A creamy tan head appears after the pour giving way to flavors of brown sugar, oak and vanilla paired with sour black cherry and a crisp dry finish.”
The Meddler is offered in cork and cage finished 750 ml bottles and will be available throughout the brewery’s ten state distribution footprint. Odell Brewing will celebrate the release of the beer with live music, beer samples, and local food in the brewery’s Tap Room on September 8th from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
