4/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Big bottle into small nonic tasters.
A: Pours a mildly hazy, blond/amber body sporting an off-white head that settles with some celerity into a patchy cover and sticky ring. Barleywine-ish.
S: It has that trademark 3Floyds hop character, a fine balance of citrus, pine, and earth. There's a slightly different sweetness in the finish that I can't immediately identify--my guess is the buckwheat.Not like malt, not like rye...but good, I suppose.
T: The hops also come through like, say, Gumballhead does. The interesting thing to me is the finish--the bittering melds really wonderfully with the almost rock-candy-like malt/buckwheat. Like an odd mix of rye and candi sugar or something. It does remind me of a light, buckwheat whiskey I've had. Enjoyable, different, good change of pace. I'd consider brewing with this myself.
M: Fulsome, mouth-coating feel, some stickiness from the hops, just-over-moderate carbonation, and no alcoholic heat. A bit astringent.
O: A pretty solid quaff, though a bit pricey--14 bucks for the bottle, methinks. I've enjoyed whiskeys with spelt and buckwheat, and I'm glad to see brewers moving in. About what you'd expect from a FFF/Mikkeller collab.--over-the-top, quality hopping,

I can't believe I didn't rate this one when I had it, unfortunately my notes have no date on when I tried this one, but here is what my notes say on it...
Pours a cloudy hazy amberish brown color, with a super thick off white khaki head. Smells very malty with a hint of hoppy sweetness. Initial taste - malt bomb but very pleasant balanced finish with aftertaste slightly bitter and sweet. low carbonation definitely unlike anything else, probably thanks to the buckwheat! good boo goop!

3.58/5 rDev -10.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: deep orange hinting towards red. almost opaque but just barely able to see through when held to the light. bubbly off white head that leaves a lacing behind
Smell: figs and dark fruit along with a strong wheat backbone. quite a bit of strength to the smell but not quite alcohol
Taste: opens up with figs that mix with the wheat that consists of most of the beer. ends with a strong hoppiness and slight alcohol bite
Mouthfeel: fairly light and wheaty. ends with a bit of bitterness from hops and alcohol
Overall: a fairly good but overall disappointing beer. Three floyds is talked up a lot and this one let me down a little especially for the steep price tag
Serving type: on-tap
