4.53/5  rDev +13.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Whether it's the wheat or the Euro-brewing techniques, this beer has a huge head that lays atop the mahogany liquid, leaving copious amounts of lacing behind

Smell: Loads of piney pith, but the wheatbread elements are clearly discernable; brown sugar and caramel are present, as well

Taste: Caramel and brown sugar sweetness hit the front of the tongue, with the piney hops delivering a blow by mid-palate; after the swallow, the flavors come together bringing the buckwheat along underneath; sweet and boozy in the finish, but well-balanced

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation and considerable warmth in the gullet

Overall: This beer takes Gumballhead to a whole new level; well worth seeking out

750 ml bottle, can't find a date unless its on the cap, in which case I can't read it anyway, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a hazy amber/garnet color, capped with a huge creamy inch-thick white head, eventually settles down to a thin layer but leaves crusty, thick lacing all over the glass, looks awesome.

S- The aroma is super powerful, very hoppy and citric, but what really stands out to me is the buckwheat aroma, it smells delicious and unlike any other beer I've ever smelled, some sweet booze in the back as well.

T- Big citric, piney hops and booze up front. Huge malts as well, very spicy and thick with some caramel and toffee sweetness that sticks to your teeth. Booze is very complex and not overly sweet, for 10.4% ABV I'm pretty surprised at how drinkable it is. Finish has a long hop bitterness that wrestles with lingering sweetness. All of the flavors are big and aggressive but work very well together.

M- Full-bodied, super thick, chewy feel, good carbonation.

O- A fabulous beer, really top notch, it's cool to see a wheatwine done with buckwheat, it really does provide an interesting extra dimension to an already massive beer. I'm glad I still have a bottle left, but I already know it's not going to be enough.
