CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Transparent copper with a thin wispy off-white head. Has a dry earthy buckwheat aroma. Body is thin, very drinkable and earthy with some cookie dough flavor and an earthy mild hop bitterness. The finish is watery and bland. An interesting recipe, but the results are pretty uninteresting.

Deep amber color with a thin off-white head. Earthy and malty with a light green tea aspect. Semi-dry finnish.

aracauna (3501) - Georgia, USA - NOV 6, 2005
Dark brown with an ok head. Light bodied, but malty flavor (I guess from the buckwheat tea since Im not sure you can get a beer this malty and light bodied at the same time otherwise.) Earthy and a bit like a bran muffin in flavor. This would make an excellent session beer.
