Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pilsner glass.
Head of foam was not laced a good 1/4 to 1/2 of an inch think. Sparkling and pearly white in appearance. Body color was a delicate honey-yellow brown, and a bit murky. Head was long lasting, and I could see bubbles still coming up minutes after I first poured.
Aroma a faint was still present. Not quite a bouquet-ish like scent, but more like picking a single peculiar flower out of field (or garden) and absorbing the smell for the first time. Could detect a hint of the buckwheat in the aroma... like kasha before you roast it.
Taste and mouthfeel was crisp and pleasant. Good carbonation without a biting after-taste. Lemony hops taste in the beginning... smooth buttery-nut like bread in the middle, with almost faint caramel-tawny finish.
I think this is pretty close to what I could call a well-crafted beer without having to overdue the hops, malt or alcohol content of the brew... Faint and somehow, complex.
