Commercial Description
Spring '10 — Spring Fever Odd Notion

This unique surprise cross-pollinates the classic American wheat beer with an American Pale Ale. What grows next is a fruitfully unfiltered union with a delightful hop aroma, a pleasant citrus hop flavor, and a beautifully balanced finish that leaves other ales hoppy green with springtime envy.

    [Best served in a Shaker or Weizen glass]

    Poured a pale hazy amber with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. The aroma was of light bead malts, a grassy hop and had a soapy yeast scent with notes of citrus. It tasted bitter in the beginning and ended with a bitter-sour flavor with citrus overtones. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery yet creamy in texture. Overall its an OK brew but most definetly nothing special.

    Ferm; Alright, I was very excited about trying this beer, mainly because Magic Hat does change the recipe every year and every season. This year for spring we are blessed with an un-filtered ale. It is very interesting beer. Unlike most unfiltered offerings from other breweries I feel that this beer is a bit more complicated. It dances on your tongue and has a hint of sour notes right off the bat. Who would figure that this beer settles down nicely on the palette unlike that sour little brat in the movie theatre that makes noise throughout the entire movie. I will always recommend picking up the seasonal sampler from Magic Hat just to try the Odd Notions, but this Spring offering......
