Poured from 750ml into tulip. Bought this back in January I think and its been sitting in my closet ever since...
Pours a deep burnt orange/copper with a good amount of thick foam. Very hoppy rye aromas, hints of sweet malts. Taste is very rye-like. Its sharp rye malts, bitter hops, resin, and stinging paint thinner feel; though there is some sweetness. I had really high hopes with this one, but it was just to sharp for me. I think this was my first wheatwine, so this may well be how it should taste, but regardless, this was slightly lacking in drinking enjoyment for me.

P:  A beautiful cloudy body of orange copper that displays a 2 full fingers of milky taupe head that lingers. 

S:  Fresh bursts of citrus sun drenched wheat, grapefruit, orange peel, mango, toasted caramel malt, barnyard must, dried hay and hints of fresh rolled oats. Once swirled a timid lacquer, and orange pinesol aroma hit the nose. Alcohol is sweet with a dash of spicyness. 

T/M:  Dark malts flood my palate, toasted caramel, toffee, charred wheat, and burnt orange bitterness to round out the complex flavor. Orange dark chocolate liquor filled candy is the most noticeable flavor profile.  The bitterness us a triumvirate array of tropical fruits, orange zest, grapefruit and pine resin. Fluffy mouthfeel, nice warming and a dry semi chalky finish lingering orange oil and pine resin. 

O:  A hop forward wheat wine that is loaded with complexity. Flavor changes drastically from cold to warm with it being much smoother once warmed. Hats off to Mikkeller &Three Floyd's for a deliciously well crafted treat.

A - Pours a deep, cloudy amber. Lovely 2 finger light caramel head. Great retention & lacing.

S - Hoppy on the nose with caramel, toffee & dry malts.

T - Hoppier than I expected from the style but it still has a lot of depth. Slightly sweet with lightly roasted malts and caramel. Hints of orange as well.

M - Medium body, not thick or cloying but has tons of carbonation.

O - Very enjoyable... I expect hoppy from 3F no matter the style of beer.

Thanks to egrace for sharing this beer! Thanks elliot!

poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: glowing orange witha slighly hazy body. Almost 3 fingers of an offwhite colored head. Crazy thick lacing sticking to everything it touches. Head drops to a nice thick cap.

Smell: Citrusy hops(grapefruit and orange zest), pine, pineapple, and tropical fruits. A hint of wheat malts.

Taste: No surprise here 3 Floyds brewed a hoppy beer. Lots of citrusy hops grapefruits, oranges, pine. I am getting a hint of honey sweetness and wheat malts.

Mouthfeel: on the high end of a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The beer has got a little booze heat to it, but its not overstated in the beer and does not become distracting.

Overall: Its gotta be one of the better wheatwines that I have drank besides Founders 09 Nemesis. Really great collaboration with the gypsy brewers & 3 Floyds! I really want to try Rugoop now!

Have had this bottle since about January, bought at Rick's in Alexandria, VA for $14.99. Poured into my Duvel tulip from a 750ml bottle.

a - Pours a hazy orange-brown color with two fingers plus of fluffy light tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Leaves a tons of lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of Belgian yeast, grapefruit, lemon, buckwheat, citrus, toffee, and caramel malts. Nice mix of citrus and caramel.

t - Tasted of grapefruit, citrus hops, Belgian yeast, spice, bready malts, fruity malts, caramel malts, toffee, and citrus. More malts in the taste and less hops than the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Body is very smooth and creamy. Very drinkable; alcohol is not present here.

o - Overall a very nice wheatwine. Lots of citrus and lemon hops in the nose and nice caramel malts throughout. Definitely did not feel like 10.4% ABV. Would have it again.

Inch tall light beige fluffy head. Body is a murky dark orange color. Wonderful head retention and resinious, splotchy lacing. Beautiful looking beer.

Oranges, slight lemon zest.

Sweet citrus at first then heads into a more wheaty taste. Grapefruity/orange-tinged hops play a big part in BooGoop. Relatively clean finish for a wheatwine.

Full mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

One of the lesser boozy wheatwines I've had, which has always been my beef with them. This one excels in that regard.

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

A - Pours a brilliant dark burnt orange, clear and bright. Thin white head without great retention. Faint rings of lacing.

S - Bitter, resinous hops, citrus and pine, grain and caramel malts, booze.

T - Very hoppy, much more so than I expected from this style. Mountains of flavour and depth. Mandarin, kumquat, orange, pine needle, alcohol heat, treacle.

M - Syrupy full body, moderate carbonation. A real sipper.

O - At the right time and place, i.e. as a digestif, a really pleasant experience.

Thanks to Bendurgin for sharing this nice tick! Poured into a chalice. The color is hazy light amber. There is a nearly perfect looking off-white head of about a half inch that has a lot of sticky lacing.

The aroma is hoppy to begin with. There is some nice caramel malt aroma to go with the hoppyness making a sort of caramel apple effect.

The taste has a nice caramel sweetness. Slight orange hop bitterness is in the finish; balancing out the sweetness.

This is pretty enjoyable. I like it.

Poured into a chalice. This one pours a golden straw color with a finger of fluffy white head. A bit of sticky lace.

The aroma has a nice forefront of grassy hops with some hints of sweet caramel in the background. Big malt backbone here with hints of toffee and caramel. Surprisingly hoppy finish giving this one a nice bitter edge.

The body is medium with good carbonation. Overall this one is not to bad. Certainly unique.

750ml, Winter '12 (sitting on this since January '12)
Unmarked tulip

A: Pours a deep orange amber color. Big fluffy pillowy head. Off white. Looks like tons of bottom conditioning. Already leaving lots of sticky lacing. Some alcohol feet for sure.

S: Through the nose, I still got a ton of hop aromas. Lots of fruitiness actually. Mango. Papaya. Pineapple. Maybe that overripe peach is there. Then the nice bready malt sweetness. A buddy of mine described the smell like fresh baked soft pretzel, and I sort of do get that as it warms.

T: Pretty solid brew. Up front you get some bitterness on the tip of the tongue. Still a good amount of hoppiness in this one. Lots of sweet juicy fruit hops. Then in the middle of the mouth those delicious malts come into play. Don't know if it's the buckwheat, but it makes for a really pleasant flavor mesh with the hops. Still a good amount of bitterness on the back end of this one. It sticks with you. The ABV is dangerously hidden, don't taste it but I assume I'll feel it in the end.

M: it's medium leading to full. Really more in that medium DIPA range.

O: A- actually upset I waited this long on this.
