Odell plans an Oud Bruin and a new Woodcut

Odell Brewing CompanyTwo new beer labels out of Odell Brewing Company of Fort Collins, Colorado have recently been been approved by the TTB and with them comes news of some exciting beers. The first is Number 06 in the line of Woodcut Oak Aged American Ales, and the second is The Meddler - Oud Bruin Ale, another barrel aged offering.

The new Odell Brewing Woodcut No. 06 is an oak aged ale featuring Mosaic hops, a fairly new variety that yields aromas like tropical fruits. Not much is known about this hop variety as a Google search doesn't show much. The beer is measured at 10.0% ABV and will be packaged in wire-caged and corked 750ml bottles.

The label describes this beer as follows: "The 6th offering in the renowned Woodcut Series features a bold, pioneering hop variety, Mosaic. The distinct character of the Mosaic hop presents wafting aromas of tropical fruits like mango, papaya, and guava. The familiar oak flavors of vanilla, almond, and dried fruit mingle with the zesty hop essence crafting a decadent drinking experience. Each Woodcut offering is truly limited edition beer with a unique flavor that comes from select hops, fine malted barley, and our brewer’s careful aging process. Enjoy."

The second beer, The Meddler - Oud Bruin Ale, is an old style Belgian beer apparently took well over a year to age. This ale describes as: "A resurrected style from the Flemish region of Belgium, The Meddler oud bruin is a crafty concoction, comprised of several generations of brown ales, barrel aged and blended. Wild yeast and Lactobacillus meddle with the brew for over 18 months, creating complexity and depth of flavor. Hints of malty sweet chocolate and vanilla toy with a hauntingly sour finish. Intricate yet balanced, The Meddler will leave you craving more of the mysterious brew".

This 8.9% ABV beer will be put into wire-cage and corked 750ml bottles.

Please note, that TTB label approval doesn't always mean that these beers will be released anytime in the near future. Odell Brewing may age these beers further and wait for a later time this year to release. Once a firm release date is known, Fermentedly Challenged will pass that along.
