3 Floyds and Mikkeller. And only 16 bucks. surprising.

Pours a slightly muddy amber. decently off white head floats atop.

Smell is really loaded with spicy citric hops. Hop bitterness really pervades all the smells. Dominating to say the least. Doesnt smell like wheat, or any malts for that matter.

Nothing like I was expecting, but lets be honest, I had no idea what to expect. Maybe I was expecting a wine strength version of a German hefe, but its not anywhere near that. Theres a clean dry feeling from the wheat. Underlying slick citrus feeling. Strong bitter hop presence. Maybe more of a spicy hop character.

Its actually very clean and refreshing, which is very scary considering the high ABV. I like the clean feeling, and how balanced it is. Its dry and grainy, yet slick, light, and sweet. Hints of caramel and toffee linger in the background.

1st BA Review... I was lucky enough to have this on tap at the Holy Grale in Louisville, KY.

A - This rare beast pours a beautiful red-orange with a white, foamy head. It left a creamy lacing that lingered around the snifter.

S - Aroma is sweetbread with strong caramel background, also a bit of citrus.

T – Excellent. Taste is bready, citrus, and vanilla/toffee spice. Buckwheat pancakes with spicy citrus marmalade... Balanced and delicious.

M – Very smooth and an easy drinker, especially for a brew labeled at 10.4%. There was a medium body, which I found to be not as syrupy as I expected. However, the mouthfeel was still thick and velvety.

O - Finish highlights the rye followed by a light burn. Another great retired brew from FFF and Mikkeller: an awesome surprise to try this out on tap.

Thanks Tyler and Lori for having the best selection in town.

*There is a large variation between bottle and tap; the tap was great, but the bottle seemed to be missing something.

Poured into a half liter pokal.

Given a vigorous pour, the beer had a three finger head with excellent lacing over an amber/maple body. The smell is like a DIPA, which leaves me wanting more, but smells good regardless. The taste is sweet, lots of bright fruity flavors with a hint of alcohol, this very full-bodied beer is dangerously drinkable at such a high ABV. If you're a fan of either of these two, grab it.

PS Ugly label.

From the tap at Holy Grale, into a wine glass.

Pours an amberish color with lots of orange highlights. A dense, foamy head that displays great lacing as it is drank down.

Lots of orange rind and other citrus aromas on the nose, with a touch of iced yellow sponge cake sweetness.

Again, a decent amount of orange and tangerine citrus rind. Then transitions into a nice peppery, smoothed out sweetness that can be compared to lighter colored dessert cakes.

On the heavier side of medium bodied with faint carbonation. Smooth and thick, yet still quaffable.

Alot of great citrus hops with and interesting peppery sweentness to it. Pretty good wheat wine, one of the best I've had.

A: Pours a hazy gold with orange highlights and a creamy, clinging white mousse that leaves a thin trail of white lace down the sides of the glass.

S: Aromas of pine, grapefruit, mint, orange, and lemon are nicely balanced by a grainy tartness from the buckwheat. For such a strong ale, there is no alcohol on the nose. It smells quite inviting.

T: A resinous, bitter entry reveals notes of bitter orange, lemon, pine, grapefruit, sage, orange candies, and buckwheat. The finish is hoppy and plenty bitter with the expected interplay of tart citrus and grain flavors.

M: Medium-to-full in body, perhaps closer to the latter than to the former. Carbonation is present, but not particularly intrusive. This ale is rather sticky and resinous in the mouth, so it's not particularly drinkable. Treat this one as a sipper.

O: This is an endlessly fascinating ale that I would have no problem buying again if it were ever available. Despite the high alcohol content and ridiculous amount of hops used, there is nothing imposing or overwhelming about this beer. A really fascinating, innovative take on the wheatwine style, and a beer that I would have no reservations about recommending to anyone.
