3.73/5  rDev -7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a hazy orange/caramel with more than three fingers of light brown head. Head has excellent retention and leaves rings of lacing down the glass.

S - Very hoppy aroma, mostly grapefruit, but some pine. Lots of toasted grain, with some caramel, toffee and quite a bit of booze.

T - Similar to smell though the taste has even more grain than the aroma. Again, lots of grapefruit hops with some pine. Caramel malt takes a back seat to the hops and grain. Leaves a lingering bitter aftertaste and is reminiscent of a DIPA.

M, Medium-full mouthfeel finishes dry and bitter some numbing alcohol.

T - I don't normally like really hoppy barleywines/wheatwines, but I think the hops are necessary here to counter the heavy tosted grain character. Because of that, I'm not sure how this one will age. It is pretty tasty, and I'm glad I had it, but I doubt I'll think about this again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

The pour is a murky, turbid orange color with a white head. Intense hop aroma of citrus (grapefruit peel) and pine. A decent breadiness and some toffee in there, too. Unfortunately, the nose is also overwhelmingly boozy and almost solvent-like. Like the aroma, heavy on the pine and citrus peel hop notes with a very pronounced bitterness. Notes of plastic with just as much booze as is present on the aroma.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter

A- A clear deep ruby red with a three finger off-white head that sticks around.

S- Hoppy. Citrus hops, some pine, some wheat and rye, some sweet caramel malts, touch of fruit.

T- Citrus notes upfront, big bitter pine finish, some sweet malts/tropical fruits, good balance, 10.4% ABV is really not noticeable.

M- Medium body, creamy.

O- A solid beer that I would pick up again given the chance. This is very hoppy but does have some balance to it, ABV is well hidden.

This beer pours a dull looking dark amber with a dense fluffy tan head. It looks much darker than most wheatwines. The nose is sweet and boozy with a hint of pineapple. The taste doesn't fail at all with a medium, sweet body that leaves a hint of bitter citrus behind. It has very balanced flavors and ample carbonation (which will fade if poured too vigorously --> lead to a sweet syrup). Overall this beer's tasty and a different wheatwine than I'm used to drinking.

750ml : tulip snifter

Pours dark orange, with a creamy, dense 3" off white head.
Lots of nice lacing.

Citric hops upfront, with caramel malt and wheat backing.

Citric, and resiny hops,much more than I would expect for the style, but still enjoyable. Very much like a hoppy American Barleywine.

Smooth, medium-full body with soft, medium carbonation.

Well crafted, reminiscent of an American Barleywine, but with a fuller, smoother body.

WHOA! Watch out pouring this brew!!! Huge thick tan soapy, bubbled, foamy head which has a lot of staying power. Nice coating is left behind on my Duvel Tulip. Brew is near blood red amber color, nice clarity for the style. Looks delicious.

Lots of big hop aroma! Lots of crimson grapefruit. Some mellow wheat too.

Soft and fluffy. Very wet with nice elegant bitterness. Flavor is nice, but lacking unique flavors to draw you back for your next sip though. A bit too wheat-y and not enough regular malt. Carbonation is spot on.

Boogoop is slightly all over, but far from a mess. It's recommended, but not worth hoarding. a solid "B" quality brew... It's lacking depth in both aroma and flavor.

Bought a bottle of this at Julio's a while back. Poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a dark mahogany almost garnet hue with an almost too big head. Talkin 4 khaki finger head that fades to leave huge side lacing and a nice chunky blanket.

S - Aromas are alot of hops surprisingly. Bitter pine and slight citrus with lots of malty sweetness. Slight booze.

T - Whats this? Its got alot of malt sweetness. There are some old hops, slightly bitterness but kinda cardboard tasting. The booze isnt all that noticeable, or rather as noticeable as I thought it would be. Its not that bad, past the old hop taste...

M - Mouthfeel is average for a wheatwine. Booze isnt all that noticeable. Its not that bad.

O - Overall I had better expectations for this beer. Its not bad, but its not good either. Both these breweries know how to make a solid brew too. Dissappointed.

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

Pours a hazy dark ruby/copper color with a large fluffy khaki head that slowly recedes leaving sticky thick lacing and bubbly hop-foam along the glass.

Aromas begin with huge pine and lemon rind hops with lesser amounts of caramel, toasted cracker breadiness and an emerging mild alcohol. Smells much more like a DIPA than a barleywine

The tastes follow the nose but with a slight twist. First you get toasty cracker maltiness with lesser amounts of with honey and caramel. Supplementary dried apricot, candied lemon peel and resinous piney hops with a moderate increasingly strong bitterness. Mid palate you get this odd, rustic sourness which I can only attribute to the buckwheat grain which perks up amidst the bitterness in the finish.

The mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied with medium carbonation to help balance the intense bitterness otherwise the hops would wreck your palate.

Overall this is a fairly nice beer but the hops and alcohol heft are a bit green at this point. The buckwheat really doesn't add anything more than oats or wheat would to a beer of this nature; only increasing the mouthfeel. I imagine I would enjoy this more in a about 6 or so more months when the ABV and hop bitterness have mellowed out. Definitely not as good as Ruggoop but has potential to develop into a nice barley wine, but right now is just a slightly boozy DIPA.

From phone notes, on tap at Pumphouse.

Pours a rich dark copper gold, half finger head, with sticky lace.

Aromas are a hops and pine assault on nose.

Taste is a resin pine and malt bomb, however quite sweet overall.

Sticky mouthfeel - quite oily.

Good beer, but I wonder how easy it is to brew something this flavourful at this abv?

Bottle to Bruery tulip.

A - Medium to dark amber colour. Two fingers of thick, creamy off-white head formed and slowly receded to one finger width with good retention and moderate lacing.

S - A mix of sweet malt and bitter hop aromas up front. A fairly prominent hop profile provides grassy, herbal and lighter citrus aromas. The malt bill compliments those aromas with cereal/bready qualities and caramel.

T - Very generous hopping is noticed up front with big grassy, herbal and citrus flavours. The citrus is far more prominent than the nose suggested. There is some pine evident as well. The malt bill balance out the bold hop profile adding sweet caramel, candy, some spiciness and light toffee notes. More flavours seem to present themselves with every sip - including some pineapple and orange peel flavours which also accentuate the citrus flavours that were already present.

M - Medium body, creamy. Light to moderate carbonation.

O - It seems like almost everything that FFF touches appeals to me. This is no exception. A well made beer.

No Freshness dating

A= Pours a very very hazy amber color with a beautiful off white sort of caramel yogurt head on it. The head is a nice three fingers with great lacing and retention.

S= Smell is a great hop aroma with a sort of rye like malt character. Smells almost like a darker rye character. There is actually a nice mix of characters playing different roles in here without any one taking over.

T= The taste is a nice big biting hop character with a sort of different malt character to it. It's definitally not rye and it's not wheat. It almost seems like a mix of the two with a roasty character to it as well. The hops hold all of this up while the main interest lies in the malt. I've never had buckwheat so I didn't know what to expect. It's definitally different than anything I've ever had.

M= A nice bubbly mouth. A little less carbonation may have been nice.

O= This series has been pretty interesting and nice. This is no exception. It's fun to try new malts that you've never had before. These beers always seem to have a nice balance to them as well. Great beer and I wish I had another to keep for a while to really let that buckwheat flavor shine.

Bottle: Poured a deep dirty medium brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of deep caramelized grain notes with some dry and somewhat grassy hops is quite unique. Taste is dominated by deep caramelized buckwheat malt with strong grainy notes which are somewhat unique offset by some dry and lightly grassy hops notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting too try a beer with so much buckwheat malt and a strange but enjoyable mix with hops.

750ml bottle into Duvel tulip. Thanks to BA morningthief for getting me this bottle for my birthday a few months ago.

Appearance: Careful pour yields a 2+ inch fluffy white head that dissipates slowly and rockily, leaving thick islands of lacing. Pours a hazy brownish red. Leaves sweeping lacing.

Smell: From the bottle: "Wow, they hopped the shit out of this beer, huh?"

In the glass, powerful west coast C-hops, I think Cascade or Centennial. Mostly piny, with some (orange-y) citrus and underlying dankness. Sugary malt way in the background. Really direct hop aroma; pine and citrus, no additional aspects really besides the pungency.

With time, the aroma opens up in every way. It starts as a slight mango note, with melon and berry-like hop aromas building up around the primary pine and citrus. There's a definite vodka-like booziness, but it works here as in better higher ABV imperial IPAs, where the flowery, sharp alcohol aromas accentuate the hop aromas.

Taste: First sip: predictably hoppy (that direct, C-hop pine and citrus), with a bit of a malty base--then some wow moments with the aftertaste. The flavor goes on and on, with emerging malty notes of maple and caramel. Awesome.

Up front it's resinous, piny, (and to a lesser degree) citrusy hops, with oily hop flavor (accentuated by the slightly slick wheat mouthfeel) through the middle, leading to a consistently long, prickly / semi-dry malty aftertaste. Hops eventually round out as with the nose; hard to tell if there's more hop varietals (Summit? Citra?) than at first seemed to be present, or if the alcohol and esters are influencing the hop flavor perception. Either way, it tastes good.

Classic American barleywine-style beer (though it's a "buckwheat wine"). The hop fix is intense and well delivered by the lightish bodied, oily feel, which makes you want to hit the beer hard, while the long, deep, malty aftertaste makes you want to go slow. The candy sweetness that emerges through the finish isn't quite balanced by the low-ish bitterness, but I don't think that's the point. While I'd like a bit more balance, a bit less sweetness, and for the malt to go even further, this beer succeeds at what it's trying to be: a treat--big hop fix, big sweet malt fix.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Smooth, a little slick. Moderate carbonation that's just prickly enough. Slightly dry finish. Building but not abrasive alcohol heat.

Overall: Well-thought out, well-executed beer. It hints at complex malty greatness that it doesn't achieve, but it provides tons of no frills, hoppy and sweet-malty pleasure. If you're on board with the idea (wheat wine feel, DIPA hoppiness, candy shop malt), you'll love this beer.

750 ml bottle into snifter, smudged bottle date, but probably bottled late 2011. Pours very hazy red orange color, with a nice 2 finger dense khaki head with incredible retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Some nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big caramel, orange peel, grapefruit, honey, floral, pine, herbal, toasted biscuit, candy-like sweetness, wheat, brown sugar, and apple. Very nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of big caramel, orange peel, grapefruit, honey, toasted biscuit, pine, floral, apple, brown sugar, and herbal spiciness. Good sized pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pine, grapefruit, caramel, biscuit, orange peel, apple, honey, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a while. Great flavor balance with a good amount of floral bitterness that balances out nicely with the malts. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and thick mouthfeel as expected. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with hardly any warming present on the finish at all. Very smooth and easy to sip on. Overall this is a delicious wheat wine! Great flavor balance and good complexity; and extremely smooth to drink given the alcohol level.

Consumed 4/29/12

Appearance: Hazy, copper-amber - nice, off-white head to start, keeps a little cap and a above-average ring - sticky lacing

Smell: Surprisingly hoppy with expectedly odd malts - citrus and grapefruit flesh and peel, very reminiscent of Three Floyds beers - interesting malt profile underneath - some cooked malts, some pale malts, not as heavy-smelling as I anticipated - there is some buckwheat here, but it's pretty tame

Taste: Surprisingly mellow and not extreme - great hops, with juicy orange and grapefruit, maybe even some tropical notes (pineapple) - some resiny pine as well - lemon and other fruits - pithy bitterness that lingers, works well with the sweetness - honey-like, malty sweetness - honey graham crackers? - sweet caramel malts, cooked - buckwheat works shockingly well, adds its unique graininess, chewiness, mealiness - some wheatlike tartness, and an acceptable amount of booze for the style

Mouthfeel: Full body, extremely smooth, a little too sticky, but nicely carbonated, unexpectedly drinkable

Overall: Buckwheat for the win

I was hoping that I wouldn't like this beer so I could label it as "POOPGOOP." Sadly, I like it. I thought it would be very weird, but the buckwheat really works. I hope to see this in other beers.

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

Appearance: Ruddy light copper. Head is a very light-tan/off-white. So very hazed. Pours nice and solid with a decent carbonation. Head stars off aggressive, rocky, chunky, and loose. Drops to a thin cap and collar. Nice notches of lacing.

Smell: Mega malty. Sweet with a deep lingering rough wheat backing. Bready and loaded with caramel sweetness. Hoppier than expected. Citrus and some earthy notes. More herbal than citrusy. Reminds me of wheat Chex. Sweet caramel candy. Whole wheat bread. Chewy malts.

Taste: Pure unhusked wheat. Raw and whole. So much aggressive wheatiness. Again, I'm reminded of wheat Chex. Has a mealy grain taste to it. Hops drop a little more citrus than the nose. Some herbal/floral notes add a depth to the hop profile Some pithy bitterness. Slightly spicy, almost reminiscent of rye. The alcohol is incredibly well hidden. Slight heat on the back, but it could easily pass as latent spiciness.

Mouthfeel: Moderately full body with a medium level of carbonation. A touch dry from the hops and the alcohol. Drinks incredibly smooth for such a big beer.

Overall: Buckwheat is definitely unique ingredient. I'm not sure it managed to blend with the wheatwine style, but it definitely adds a new dimension. Well crafted, but that is to be expected from these two breweries. It's a beast, but a good one.

Relatively clear mahogany colour with a smooth, light tan head. Great lacing but only fair head retention.

Alcoholic and malty aroma with a distinct fruitiness that appears to be from hops but could also be a yeast note. Sugary to an extent. Very interesting and slightly spicy.

Sweet malt with plenty of alcohol again with the same fruitiness and a moderate bitterness. Quite estery. Slightly nutty. I'm not quite sure what to make of this despite it being nice.

Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Pretty good.

This is a complex and interesting ale. The nuttiness of the buckwheat is intriguing against the sweet malt, alcohol, hops and fruit.

750ml poured into a NB globe

A: The beer pours a hazy dark orange with a giant fluffy cap of head that had fantastic retention. It left a sticky trail of lacing throughout the session.

S: A nice blast of piney hops is layered on top of a big candied malt backbone. Booze on the back end as it warms.

T: A nice citrus hop bite in the front that quickly gets swallowed by the big candied malt base. Toffee and a hint of dark fruit dominate the finish and there is a touch of booze as it warms but it is wonderfully integrated.

M: The carbonation levels where spot on and carried this medium bodied wheatwine nicely. A nice dry finish on the pallet is provided by the hop bite.

O: Overall this was one of the first wheatwines I've ever had but I really enjoyed it. The drinkability was much higher than the usual barleywine for me and I found myself cruising through this 750 with alarming ease. I'm going to cellar my other bottle and see what comes of it and I look forward to revisiting it.

Pours a darker tinted amber color with moderate cap of dense, barely off-white foam, good retention and sticky lacing. A blind whiff would lead me to consider this a hoppy barlewine as strong resinous hop notes blend with the allure of sticky sweet caramel and brown sugar, faint earthy graininess, spice and splash of dark fruits. Taste tones down the sweetness a touch and lets more of the grain shine through, bold pine resin and dark fruits present themselves before honey and brown sugar finish out the taste. Fuller side of medium bodied, smooth and creamy. Much more harsh on the nose and palate than expected, subtlety not a feature of this beer in any way, good sipper.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

Pours a gorgeous hazy strong deep orange with some nice golden edges and a perfect 1.5 inch head. The head is nice and dense and is very sticky with some great retention. As the head recedes it leaves some awesome sticky lacing on the edges.

Nice strong citrus notes with some good fruit juice sweetness. Notes of pear and some apple juice as well. There is also some nice wheat and malty grain notes as well as some slight caramel notes.

Starts off with some strong citrus hop notes. There is some underlain caramel sweetness on the back end and some nice sweet wheat notes. Nice bitter notes as well as some slight spice notes. Maybe form the buckwheat. There is some nice fruit juice notes with some apple and slight fig notes. There is also a nice caramel sweetness mixed in with the spice and the earthy grain. The body is nice and crisp with good medium fullness and pretty smooth finish.

Overall this is a good wheatwine. Kind off different from others I have had. The wheat notes aren't as prevalent. THere is nice caramel and some good hoppy spice and bitterness as well as some caramel notes and some good toasty grain.

750mL bottle poured into a tulip.

(A)- Pours a deep reddish hued chestnut color. Produced a good tan cap of froth. Good lacing as well.

(S)- Very grainy and malty caramel. Hints of fig.

(T)- Similar to the smell. A rather "heavy" grain and hop taste to it. Some malty parts in the background, but otherwise very grainy.

(M)- Like the taste, this has a significantly grainy taste as well as feel to it. A robust bitterness too. A good carbonation level, but its rather abrasive overall.

(D)- Decent, but I really do not understand why the huge hop profile is necessary for this beer considering the style it is under. That and the rather abrasive overall taste and feel this has, it is kind of a fail in my eyes especially the $$ per bottle this is.

750mL champagne style bomber poured into snifter

A hazy mahogany body with a large amount of tan foam. Might have agitated the bottle a little. Head settles slowly. Big chunks of foam all over the glass.

Complex aroma. Orange citrus, figs, honey, burnt sugar, bready malt, and sweet sticky caramel. This is more on the sweet side, balanced by a bit of earthiness and some booze.

Citrus fruit up front before burnt sugar, caramel, figs, honey, and fruit carry through the middle. The finish is more earthy, with just a touch of residual sweetness. I like how this beer runs the spectrim of hoppy goodness, sticky sweet, and then some mellow earthiness to balance everything out.

Sticky, medium body with low carbonation. Smooth with a touch of booze.

A tasty, complex beer with tons of flavors. I am glad I bought a couple of these. These will age nicely.

A hazy amber brew with a warm almost orange foam, High and slowly setting. Leaving loads of lacing and having good curatins as well.

Smelling of apricot jam, muffins, mango chutney, raisins and sherry.

Sweet bitter orange marmalade, plums and bitter grape-fruit peel.

Medium low carbonation, small foamy bubbles, a large body, sticky and oily, a dry finish.

In all very good, a bit of a fruity imperial IPA due to the heavy hopping. Would have been interesting to store a few years.
