A - Cloudy orange pour with a white fizzy head. Decent lacing. Some carbonation is visible.

S - Scent of caramel malt, some citrus notes, and a bit of dry sherry. Has a boozy smell as it warms.

T - Strong malt flavor with a bite of sharp berries. Finish has a potent bite. Very sweet component to this.

M - Strong sipper that really goes well after a meal. I was glas to split the bottle with a few friends. This is not a style that I'd like to have too much of.

O - Enjoyable collaboration and well worth trying.

Poured from 750ml into tulip. Bought this back in January I think and its been sitting in my closet ever since...
Pours a deep burnt orange/copper with a good amount of thick foam. Very hoppy rye aromas, hints of sweet malts. Taste is very rye-like. Its sharp rye malts, bitter hops, resin, and stinging paint thinner feel; though there is some sweetness. I had really high hopes with this one, but it was just to sharp for me. I think this was my first wheatwine, so this may well be how it should taste, but regardless, this was slightly lacking in drinking enjoyment for me.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

P:  A beautiful cloudy body of orange copper that displays a 2 full fingers of milky taupe head that lingers. 

S:  Fresh bursts of citrus sun drenched wheat, grapefruit, orange peel, mango, toasted caramel malt, barnyard must, dried hay and hints of fresh rolled oats. Once swirled a timid lacquer, and orange pinesol aroma hit the nose. Alcohol is sweet with a dash of spicyness. 

T/M:  Dark malts flood my palate, toasted caramel, toffee, charred wheat, and burnt orange bitterness to round out the complex flavor. Orange dark chocolate liquor filled candy is the most noticeable flavor profile.  The bitterness us a triumvirate array of tropical fruits, orange zest, grapefruit and pine resin. Fluffy mouthfeel, nice warming and a dry semi chalky finish lingering orange oil and pine resin. 

O:  A hop forward wheat wine that is loaded with complexity. Flavor changes drastically from cold to warm with it being much smoother once warmed. Hats off to Mikkeller &Three Floyd's for a deliciously well crafted treat.

A - Pours a deep, cloudy amber. Lovely 2 finger light caramel head. Great retention & lacing.

S - Hoppy on the nose with caramel, toffee & dry malts.

T - Hoppier than I expected from the style but it still has a lot of depth. Slightly sweet with lightly roasted malts and caramel. Hints of orange as well.

M - Medium body, not thick or cloying but has tons of carbonation.

O - Very enjoyable... I expect hoppy from 3F no matter the style of beer.

Thanks to egrace for sharing this beer! Thanks elliot!

poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: glowing orange witha slighly hazy body. Almost 3 fingers of an offwhite colored head. Crazy thick lacing sticking to everything it touches. Head drops to a nice thick cap.

Smell: Citrusy hops(grapefruit and orange zest), pine, pineapple, and tropical fruits. A hint of wheat malts.

Taste: No surprise here 3 Floyds brewed a hoppy beer. Lots of citrusy hops grapefruits, oranges, pine. I am getting a hint of honey sweetness and wheat malts.

Mouthfeel: on the high end of a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The beer has got a little booze heat to it, but its not overstated in the beer and does not become distracting.

Overall: Its gotta be one of the better wheatwines that I have drank besides Founders 09 Nemesis. Really great collaboration with the gypsy brewers & 3 Floyds! I really want to try Rugoop now!

Have had this bottle since about January, bought at Rick's in Alexandria, VA for $14.99. Poured into my Duvel tulip from a 750ml bottle.

a - Pours a hazy orange-brown color with two fingers plus of fluffy light tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Leaves a tons of lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of Belgian yeast, grapefruit, lemon, buckwheat, citrus, toffee, and caramel malts. Nice mix of citrus and caramel.

t - Tasted of grapefruit, citrus hops, Belgian yeast, spice, bready malts, fruity malts, caramel malts, toffee, and citrus. More malts in the taste and less hops than the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Body is very smooth and creamy. Very drinkable; alcohol is not present here.

o - Overall a very nice wheatwine. Lots of citrus and lemon hops in the nose and nice caramel malts throughout. Definitely did not feel like 10.4% ABV. Would have it again.

Inch tall light beige fluffy head. Body is a murky dark orange color. Wonderful head retention and resinious, splotchy lacing. Beautiful looking beer.

Oranges, slight lemon zest.

Sweet citrus at first then heads into a more wheaty taste. Grapefruity/orange-tinged hops play a big part in BooGoop. Relatively clean finish for a wheatwine.

Full mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

One of the lesser boozy wheatwines I've had, which has always been my beef with them. This one excels in that regard.

A - Pours a brilliant dark burnt orange, clear and bright. Thin white head without great retention. Faint rings of lacing.

S - Bitter, resinous hops, citrus and pine, grain and caramel malts, booze.

T - Very hoppy, much more so than I expected from this style. Mountains of flavour and depth. Mandarin, kumquat, orange, pine needle, alcohol heat, treacle.

M - Syrupy full body, moderate carbonation. A real sipper.

O - At the right time and place, i.e. as a digestif, a really pleasant experience.

Thanks to Bendurgin for sharing this nice tick! Poured into a chalice. The color is hazy light amber. There is a nearly perfect looking off-white head of about a half inch that has a lot of sticky lacing.

The aroma is hoppy to begin with. There is some nice caramel malt aroma to go with the hoppyness making a sort of caramel apple effect.

The taste has a nice caramel sweetness. Slight orange hop bitterness is in the finish; balancing out the sweetness.

This is pretty enjoyable. I like it.

Poured into a chalice. This one pours a golden straw color with a finger of fluffy white head. A bit of sticky lace.

The aroma has a nice forefront of grassy hops with some hints of sweet caramel in the background. Big malt backbone here with hints of toffee and caramel. Surprisingly hoppy finish giving this one a nice bitter edge.

The body is medium with good carbonation. Overall this one is not to bad. Certainly unique.

750ml, Winter '12 (sitting on this since January '12)
Unmarked tulip

A: Pours a deep orange amber color. Big fluffy pillowy head. Off white. Looks like tons of bottom conditioning. Already leaving lots of sticky lacing. Some alcohol feet for sure.

S: Through the nose, I still got a ton of hop aromas. Lots of fruitiness actually. Mango. Papaya. Pineapple. Maybe that overripe peach is there. Then the nice bready malt sweetness. A buddy of mine described the smell like fresh baked soft pretzel, and I sort of do get that as it warms.

T: Pretty solid brew. Up front you get some bitterness on the tip of the tongue. Still a good amount of hoppiness in this one. Lots of sweet juicy fruit hops. Then in the middle of the mouth those delicious malts come into play. Don't know if it's the buckwheat, but it makes for a really pleasant flavor mesh with the hops. Still a good amount of bitterness on the back end of this one. It sticks with you. The ABV is dangerously hidden, don't taste it but I assume I'll feel it in the end.

M: it's medium leading to full. Really more in that medium DIPA range.

O: A- actually upset I waited this long on this.

750 ML poured into a snifter

A- This beer pours dark, dank amber brown. Its clear, but dark. It poured with a massive head off off white/tan bubbles, extremely dense and great retention. Nice lacing as well. An absolute beast of a beer.

S- I get a lot of hop bitterness and hop aromas. I have been sitting on this bottle for quite some time now so the hop aroma has faded and the hop character that is still around smells of age. There is pineapple, grapefruit, pine, overly ripened fruits. There is also a strong sweetness, a malty, sugary backbone that gives it a kick.

T- A huge bitterness up front, absolutely three floyd'ed. Hop flavors are extremely strong in here for the age. There is a ton of pineapple, and pine. There is some overly ripened grapefruit and apricot. Malt profile is sweet but still has some breaddyness to it as well as a nice feel which keeps it in check.

O- This is a beast of a beer but it's drinking easier then I had expected. The hop profile may have faded with age but the bitterness is in check, very much so. Carbonation is on par. Aftertaste is bitter, dry and hoppy.

M- An awesome beast of a beer. I wish I had tried it fresh because three floyds hops are out of this world. However, with the age I put on it, it drank quite easy. Look forward to the future of the "goop" family. Next time I will try to get one fresh and age another for about 2 years.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

On the path of New Holland's Pilgrim's Dole and Founders Nemesis '09; this new wave of buckwheat heavy ale comes alive with the remarkably intense citrusy hop character.

A rather viscous pour looks like creamy corn syrup but with a tint of burnt orange and garnet. An eventual froth separates from the beer underneath for a very sturdy and dense retainage of mild yellowish foam that clings confidently to the glass.

Strong and surprising hop notes of grapefruit, oranges, pineapple, and and mangoes spring to the forefront just ahead of a candied scent of straight up caramel, cotton candy, and marshmallows. Strong alcohols present a light booze note that hides just behind the hops and gives the beer a rosy floral overtone throughout.

Strength is also the name of the game in taste, but this time the malty richness of caramel, maple, honey, confectioner's sugar and fruit flavored candies gives a palate a sweet coat with robust wheat breads, grain, and spicy rye-ish buckwheat. The full appreciation of malt is short lived as the mid palate provides an onslaught of hops that change the tone of the beer toward American barleywine territory in a hurry. Citrus and tropical fruit flavors battle it out with ripe red grapefruit pulp, tangerine zest, pineapple, apricot, mango, and passion fruit notes that plummet into a deeply resinous bittering that finishes the beer briskly, semi-dry, and somewhat refreshing.

Full bodied for sure as the protein rich wheaty quality clings onto the unresolved sugars and deeply embedded carbonation for an expansive mouthfeel that extends very deep into the finish. Even as the hop dryness and alcohol thinning works to dry the beer, the malts release very late to allow the hops to provide final bitter impressions that linger well into the next sip.

A memory that reminds me of pineapple upside down cake, tropical fruit juices, and pine sap continues to develop beer flavor well after the glass is gone. This is a masterfully crafted ale that delivers the obscure flavors that intrigue beer drinkers but with an excellent balance and execution to find familiararity as well.

A - Amber to copper, rose closer to rust, turbid and a enormous off white almost pink-tinted head.

N - Strawberry, grapefruit skin, lemon zest, lactic sourness; strong touch of esters and phenols, plastic, granny smith apple, juiciness, vinous, fresh mint.

T/M - Candied fruits, toffee, viscous and syrupy mouthfeel but a crisp and drying-tannin like finish; some vinous suggestions, grape skin, vegetal, herbal, rose hips, lavendar; whole lotta shit going on here.

D - This was such a pleasant surprise as I have not been overly blown away by wheatwines in the past. More akin to a nice barleywine but toes the line of refreshing.

t - boozy toffee caramel with some nice hopping...again, very american barleywine. wheaty.

m - tingly. lots of carbonation...prickly.

o - overall, this is a really nice beer. my wife dug it too. very impressed, wish it was still on shelves, would love to nab another bottle.

On tap at The Farmer's Cabinet in Philly on 7/5/12. Served in a snifter.

Pour: Mostly cloudy caramel color with just over a finger of fluffy, sticky white head.

Smell: Wheaty sweetness and some citrus. Hops have held up well since its release.

Taste: Caramel sweetness up front followed by a burst of floral, peppery, and citrus hop bitterness. Hops command the majority of the taste, but are not overpowering. Bready sweetness lingers.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy body, and not overly bitter. Definitely warming, but alcohol is masked pretty well.

Overall: really excited I got to try this, and I was not disappointed.

750mL shared by a buddy. Served in an oversized snifter. 

Pours a cloudy burnt orange with two and a half fingers dense yellowish head. Plenty of lacing. 

Smells of herbal and citrus hops with grass, spice and a little booze. 

Taste follows the nose. Grassy, herbal hops, spicey, lemon, slight orange, an almost smokey or burnt wheat and traces of alcohol. Much less alcohol than I expected for the over 10% abv. 

Medium, almost full feel. Moderate carbonation. Slight alcohol "cooling" burn. Long, dry bittersweet finish. 

A nice brew. Much hoppier and more bitter than other wheatwines I've had with less sweetness. It's a unique take on a relatively underdone style. My friend and I both got bottles earlier this year. He agreed to share his now and I'll share mine later. I sure hope I can wait another 12-18 month to let those hops fade and see how much residual sweetness is hiding behind all that bitter. Either way it's freakin tasty.

A: Tawny brown with a huge frothy head and great lacing

S: Lots of booze; grainy--lots of wheat characteristics; pretty hoppy too with lots of grassy, herbal, and citrus hop characteristics; this is boozy and grainy and grassy with just a touch of that cat-pee, dank aroma that comes out in some heavily hopped beers--but in a good way, I promise

T: Man, this is grainy and grassy and boozy; the alcohol is strong but it plays so well off the citrus flavors from the hops and the grainy, herbal, grassy malts

F: A touch thin but a medium finish and sticky, oily texture makes up for the somewhat thin beginning

O: This is a tasty, boozy beer; so grainy and malty and hoppy and boozy and mmm

A deeply hazed dark orange beer with a huge, fluffy, cream-colored head. Retention and lace are both very good. After quite a few months the aroma is still aggressively hoppy; pineapple and citrus leap out of the glass, followed by a heavy, bready malt note and lots of brown sugar and caramel. As the beer opens up and warms a bit more details emerge, in particular a distinctive coconut aroma that was very attractive indeed.

The beer drinks like an enormous DIPA; you can tell Three Floyds had a hand in this one; the hops remain aggressive and bitter; pineapple, citrus, dank resins lash the tongue, a huge wave of chewy malt, molasses and caramel follows, and the beer ends up with a long and lingering bitter aftertaste. Finishes semi-dry with some residual sweetness hanging around.

Medium-full bodied with medium carbonation; this one is a monster to be sure. I came in from work at 11pm Saturday night thinking I’d have a few but after sharing this 750ml bottle I was done for the night.

750 mL bottle poured into a CCB snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Deep orange body with a nice off-white head. Sticky lacing.

Smell - Citrusy hops. Nice sweetness, but not overpowering. Fascinating smell, but I don't know what buckwheat smells like. I had some buckwheat pancakes once, but that's not enough for me to identify it readily.

Taste - Great citrus hop flavor. Expected from Three Floyds. Barely any sweetness, but it's different. Slightly spicy, but different from rye. Moderate bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium-heavy body. Not an IPA. Good slick feel with nice carbonation.

Overall - Really nice. Hoppy as hell. The malt flavor is interesting enough to keep me from getting bored with it. A nice change from a standard wheat/barleywine.

Pours light caramel with a big white frothy head and excellent lacing.

Sweet caramel with a little bit of tang, some bready malt, and citrus hops.

A little bit of citrus up front along with some sweet caramel malt. Finishes supremely piney and dry with a slight astringency.

Medium bodied and a bit sticky with medium carbonation.

An interesting idea and not too bad, but the sweetness up front turns into intense bitterness on the back end and it's not a terribly smooth transition which makes it a bit weird.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a New Belgium globe. No freshness info on bottle.

Appearance: Pours a hazy medium caramel brown with golden edges and an enormous 3-4 finger foamy light tan head which dissipates slowly into a heap of foam in the middle of the glass. Excellent head retention and lacing.

Smell: Sweet caramel malt, lemon zest pine and a bit of boozy alcohol.

Taste: Sweet malt and bitter citrus up front followed by pine and a touch of bready malt in the middle before ending with bitter citrus and booze at the finish. Aftertaste is quite bitter with just a hint of sweet pineapple. I'm really surprised that I'm not picking up a lot of wheat character in this one.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with a good amount of carbonation. The hop oils are quite sticky and completely coat the palate.

Drinkability: Decent drinkability. You may want to have a friend help you finish the bottle. Otherwise, you're going to be feeling it.

Overall: Good beer overall. While I'm not at all familiar with wheatwines (this is my first), I'll say it's a solid beer and I'd basically compare it to a barleywine. This was my first beer from either Mikkeller or Three Floyds and I'd say it didn't really disappoint. Worth a try.

Pours hazy dark amber with a large, fading head.
Lots of malt in the aroma, with caramel, toffee and golden syrup all showing alongside some spicy, bready malt. In the way of hops there's resinous, spicy characters. Tempting.
The malty aroma is perfectly mirror in the flavours. What's different is the booze and hops. There's a stronger piny, spicy hop presence including an aggressive bitterness in the finish, while the alcohol presents itself noticeably but remains clean.
Body is perfectly syrupy.

Boogoop poured a hazy orange with an off-white head. Being a wheatwine, this is a heavy hitter in terms of ABV. Yet one would not identify high alcohol content by the aroma. Instead, the aroma was mildy hoppy like a DIPA that has sat on the shelves too long. The initial taste was quite hoppy with a big shot of grapefruit. It certainly lacked any sense of sweetness I was coming to expect as with a wheat beer. The mouthfeel was smooth which allowed the hops to have a even distribution. If the hops were more nuianced, this is where the mouthfeel would have been helpful. In the aftertaste, the citrus continues with a moderate warming effect from the alcohol.
