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.

A: A very murky, rusty red/brown pour. Huge fluffy and dense tan head that lasts forever - amazing retention. Leaves a wall of lacing as it fades.

S: A lot of grapefruit and citrus. Nice grainy malt in there too. Smells a lot like a huge DIPA really.

T: Grapefruit and orange bitterness up front with a bit of an herbal aspect. Turns into sweet bread, toffee and caramel. Pine bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. This is similar to a big hoppy barleywine I would say, I don't really notice typical wheatwine flavors. There might be just a hint of wheat that lingers in the residual aftertaste. No noticeable booze. As it warms I can taste the wheat throughout, adds a nice level of complexity.

M: Very smooth and drinkable, making the 10.4% very surprising. Body isn't even that heavy given the ABV. A bit drying.

O: This is a really tasty beer. It sort of falls between styles. I would call it an american barleywine more than anything. The buckwheat seems to smooth it out a bit and gives it a tiny bit of wheaty flavor but otherwise it's just a big barleywine with tons of hops.

On Tap at TJ'S Everyday.

BooGOOp came to me in a snifter. The liquid is a lightish brown color with some tints of faded red when up towards the light. A small finger of off white foam up top that leaves, but leaves nothing on the glass. Smell is light fruits mixed in with a decent wheat base. some whiffs of alcohol. More fruit with apple as it warms and a nice hop scent. A bready yeast strain reveals itself overtime. Taste is big and enjoyable. I say enjoyable because most Mikeller beers are untouchable for me. This boogoop has qualities of a wheat wine, with big amber ale qualities and some European influence. Some tastes of caramel, Wheat, Earthy hops, some alcohol, apple, and other tastes. Wild stuff. Feel is a big medium. This one sort of coats the mouth and leaves a semi hot feel as time goes by. It's carbed up to where it needs to be. Boogoop is nice stuff, but something I would not go for again. I don't see this aging that gracefully, if I had a bottle, I would drink it now.

Pours a murky caramel orange with a tan head that settles to a small cap. Streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of sweet malt, citrus zest, and orange aromas. Taste is of sweet malt, oranges, and citrus zest. There is a medium bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good wheatwine with some nice citrus aromas and flavors.

This poured out as a deep copper color with a cream colored head on top that had a very nice lacing on it. The retention was pretty good on this also. The smell of the beer was mostly all hops, Not sure if it's what I really wanted from a Wheatwine style. It gave me the impression that this was going to be more like an IPA. The taste of the beer was very hoppy too, Really just not was I was hoping for here. The mouthfeel was nicely carbonated and had a decent body to it. Overall I was a little disappointed in this one. It was just too hoppy I think for the style they were attempting.
