Of course, these two got up to some crazy experiments, so let’s head into the Odyssey and taste what they’ve created.

*NEW* Orange-Cardamom Wings – $7.50

The chicken on the wings could be higher quality. It’s a little bit dry where it should be more tender. That being said, the sauce is really good. The cardamom flavor comes through intensely. These wings are less messy to eat than the others offered here, so those worried about stains may want to pick this over the other options.

Traditional Buffalo Wings with Celery and Ranch – $7.50

brew-wing-9913

This doesn’t have the best Buffalo flavor. It’s pretty mild and borderline barbecue tasting. Skip these.

*NEW* Impossible™ Buffalo Chicken Tenders with Plant-Based Blue Cheese, Plant-Based Ranch and Celery – $7.50

For the money, you get a big portion size. It’s rather good, with an enjoyable Buffalo flavor. It does have a bit of spice. We’re still pretty shocked by the portion, as it feels gigantic. The Impossible “meat” is tasty and the plant-based ranch cools down the heat of the dish. It’s definitely a great option for plant-based eaters or carnivores who just want to give it a try.

*NEW* Scorching Hot Scotch Bonnet Pepper-Curry Wings with Creamy Cucumber Raita – $7.50

These wings may be the spiciest thing we’ve eaten at Walt Disney World. if you do not have a high spice tolerance or you don’t like spicy food, this might not be the dish for you. There’s still a lot of flavor, even though the heat is quite strong. The sauce is very pasty, which makes it far messier than the others because of the consistency.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sticky Wings – $7.50

These are one of the most interesting items on the menu and one of our favorites. The flavors work even though we don’t get a lot of the grape gel. The crunch of crushed peanuts on top added a nice texture. It’s more like peanut butter glazed wings. They aren’t spicy, and the wing itself is rather dry — which, in fairness, they did sit out for fifteen minutes while we waited for the brussels sprouts.

Garlic-Parmesan Wings – $7.50

brew-wing-9905

These are way too greasy. It’s hard to even taste the garlic Parmesan because they’re so oily. Overall, the wings were mediocre. They aren’t crispy at all. Skip these.

Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Buffalo Sauce, Plant-Based Blue Cheese and Plant-based Ranch – $5.00

These were pretty good, but we don’t think we would go out of our way for them. They were a bit too hot for such a hot day. We would recommend getting something from the Fry Basket to go with them, maybe the Yuca fries for some sweetness? These were also made to order, which is nice, but it does take a hot minute to get them. We waited about ten hot minutes.

*NEW* Frozen Fusion: Twinings Pomegranate and Raspberry Herbal Tea fused with Orange Ice Cream Molecules (Non-Alcoholic) – $4.75

This is more of a typical theme park slush type of drink. It’s got a heavy pomegranate taste.

It’s advertised as having an orange ice cream crumbled on the top, but it’s much more like an orange popsicle due to the consistency and flavor. There’s definitely nothing creamy about it.

This one’s not so much of a stand out since it has a much more standard flavor profile to a slush you could get anywhere.

Still, the cup is cute.

*NEW* Pickle Milkshake (Non-Alcoholic) – $5.75

This is going to be one of the most talked-about items of the festival.

It’s super milky on the front end. It has a strong dill flavor that lingers, but the dill overtakes the pickle.

We would get it again, but if you don’t like pickle, you will definitely hate this shake.

Of course, the cup that you can take home may be another incentive to try it.

*NEW* Sun King Brewing Caipirinha Lager, Sarasota, FL (4.0% ABV) – $5.50 for 6 oz., $9.50 for 12 oz.

Untappd describes this as a “Brazilian inspired light lager with lime flavoring.”

*NEW* Blake’s Hard Cider Co. Tropicolada Hard Cider, Armada, MI (6.9% ABV) – $5.50 for 6 oz., $9.50 for 12 oz.

From Blake’s Hard Cider Co.: “If you like piña coladas, this is one you’ll want to get mixed up with. Juicy pineapple, tangy orange and fresh coconut – there’s a ‘lada to love about this hard cider twist on the island classic.”

*NEW* Bold Rock Peach Berry Hard Cider, Nellysford, VA (4.7% ABV) – $5.50 for 6 oz., $9.50 for 12 oz.

From Bold Rock: “Delivering unmatched refreshment when you need it with huge peach and blueberry notes paired with a classic blue ridge hard apple cider foundation of flavor!”
