Bottle served into tulip.
Pours a very attractive copper orange color with continues bubbles rising from the bottom, boasts a large off white frothy head that lasts and lasts. The nose hits you with toasted malt, caramel, toffee and some fresh bread. The taste fits the nose, and is big on the toffee. Medium bodied with solid carbonation makes this a very enjoyable beer. Would drink again.

Pours a translucent amber color with phenomenal contrast to a yellowish head. The head is spectacular and, when poured into a tulip with a slightly aggressive pour, stands almost as high as the body of the beer. It looks like a sponge sitting on top of the beer. The lacing is one of the best I've seen.

Smells of citrus and earthy hops, caramel, and a bit of bubble gum.

It's hop forward and sweet with tutti-fruiti. Citrus, earthy, and piney hops with a heavy dosage of caramel and honey.

Mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and a somewhat heavy body.

I was very pleased with this beer. Heavy on the hops with a solid sweet backbone. It is a little pricey, to the point I wouldn't buy a bottle again, but definitely no buyer's remorse for taking the plunge.

Another beer provided by Dustin. Im glad he decided to share with friends. Thanks Dustin!
This beer was amber in color with an off white head. The smell was sweet and piney along with some citrus/grapefruitish qualities.
It tasted more like an DIPA versus a wheatwine. The 10.4% was not present in the aroma or flavors and was deceptively easy drinking.
I liked the beer and was glad to have had the chance to try it. Having said that, I feel there are other beers with similiar qualities that are much tastier.

Poured on-tap and served in a mini-vase, the beer pours a bright orange-copper coloring with auburn highlights in the depths. Sparse film covering on the surface, with a decent filmy cling along the glass. Slow, steady stream of carbonation bubbles. The nose is malty sweet, with lemon and orangezest and resiny hops. Flavors are amazingly blended. Resiny, green, wet hops abound, with a solid caramel malt backbone. Tangy and resiny throughout, with a citrus blend to clean the palate at the end. The aftertaste of slight pepper and green hops. The finish is tangy and sweet. Delicious beer!

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance – Pours a dark reddish color which turns a beautiful red when held up to a bright light. It has a surprisingly thick head, which is dirty white. The head sticks around a while, and leaves lots of random lacing on the glass.

Smell – A strong hoppy smell. A hint of lemon/citrus, but not too tart. A hint of pine, but not too spicy. A hint of floral, but not overpowering.

Taste – Hoppy; my first thought was this was a DIPA. Perhaps a little less bitter than a DIPA. With a touch of buckwheat and rye.

Mouthfeel – Creamy with nice carbonation (but not too much carbonation). Unfortunately, the bitterness is the only taste that lingers.

Drinkability – I can’t believe this is 10.4% abv. I guessed it to be about 7.5%. A solid beer, but nothing made me say “wow”. A bitter aftertaste lowered the overall score.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bomber into an oversized wine glass. Poured a hazy amber color with a one finger head even in this glass. Head goes away in a minute or two but retains some little heaps of bubbles.

The smell is fantastic- hoppy and fresh, there's no hint of alcohol which is surprising in a barleywine (hence the 5, keeping style in mind). Also a nice mild wheat smell.

Tastes is clean and crisp- very nice round wheat flavor. I've never head a wheat beer whose flavor I've really enjoyed but I sure like this one. Hops are piney and well balanced. NIce dry finish.

Mouthfeel is excellent- full bodied and yet well carbonated. I feel a lot of barleywines (wheat?) are too syrupy and not lively enough, again why I gave this beer a 5.

Great beer- if you see it, get it.

750ml bottle into a DFH signature glass.

A - Dark orange/brown hazy body. A massive off-white head formed rising up and over the glass. As its dying down its leaving layers on the side of the glass. Super creamy around the edges with large bubbles in the middle. Impressive appearance.

S - Very malt forward. Rich caramel and toffee followed by piney and grapefruit hop notes. Slightly earthy and spicy. A really unique and sweet aroma with a warming boozy finish.

T - Really tame compared to the nose. The flavors are very muted and subtle. Sweet and rich caramel malts followed by a sharp hop bitterness. Very piney with some light spices. Alcohol is well hidden. Mouth feel is light to medium, but slick.

O - This was an odd beer. It was my first wheat wine so I wasn't sure what to expect. The appearance and aroma were fantastic, but the taste was a bit of a letdown. I was expecting a bit more flavor akin to a barley wine. Still a decent collaboration beer. I was excited to try anything Three Floyds that I can find on a shelf in New England.

Poured from the bottle a slightly hazy amber color with a rocky beige head. Sticky wall of lacing left behind.

Aroma was on the lighter side with grapefruit, a touch of pine, and grainy malts.

The taste was bright and hoppy with grapefruit and pine. This was nicely balanced by bready caramel malts. Finished with a bitter bite and a warm hit from the 10% alcohol.

Medium bodied and a bit dry with a moderate carbonation.

A tasty collaborative brew from Three Floyds and Mikkeller.

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,

Pours a burnt rust sort of color, with a BIG off-yellow fluffy head. Left a sh*t ton of lacing. Aroma was BIG with citrus, floral and piney hops. Some sweetness comes through, wheat, caramel and nutty malts. Unfamiliar with buckwheat, but a nice aroma either way. The taste is much more balanced. Still hoppy, with pine and floral notes and a nice bitter finish, nice wheat and caramel sweetness play a bigger part. It's nutty, with a slightly chocolaty note. Smooth, full bodied and creamy textured. Great drinkability for it's bigness. Wheatwine is the obvious categorization, but not as easily distinguishable. Doesn't make it any less tasty!

I had this on tap at TJ's served in a snifter.

The color is dull copper with mild haze and thick cream cap made up of fine beads. The lace clings ok. The smell is good with lots of hop and mild stone fruit odors with slight woody essence, mainly a pine ester from the hop with spice in the nose. The feel is good, very dry with a light toasted tinge and spicy with nice hop acidity balancing the feel well. There is a hint of chalkiness which caused me to drop the score a bit.

The flavor of malt is lightly sweet and nutty with a rush of hops giving a slight floral hint and then moves into fruity spicey and piney territory. The alcohol is present in the flavor which gives a bit of an edge to the hops which balance the malt very well. The spiciness carries over into a warming alcohol finish w/ a lot of wheat flavor which is more in the toasted grain and light sweet realm. The drinkability is high for this wheatwine. The hops seem to do their part in giving the perception of less alcohol than it has, but it is apparent near the end of the glass and is a pretting filling beer too.
