Aroma cítric de llúpol. Comença amb un sabor dolç que es converteix ràpidament en amarg, que dura molt a la boca. Barley wine atípic. Carbonatació suau, bon cos. Bona cervesa.

Wow. Big hop nose, sweetness and booze underneath. Surprisingly really carbonated.The pine and citrus of the hops sit back with the sweetness, however the bitterness remains as you sit. Good drinker,

AKSalmon (74) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
Picked up this one at Beers Of Europe. Poured into a tulip glass, has the appearance of burnt orange that is opaque. Aroma is earthy with a hint of citrus. Flavour is bitter orange like chewing on bits of orange peels. Palate is smoth and a little oily. Overall a good beer if you like very bitter bitter beers.

delnoche (500) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - APR 9, 2012
75cl bottle shared with AKSalmon. Poured into a tulip. Opaque dark orange with thick creamy tan head. Aroma is intensly hoppy, orange peel. Flavor is very strong hops with a good deal of orange and an alcohol kick. Finish is lasting dryness. Palate is very sticky with medium carbonation. This is a pretty intense, warming brew.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 9, 2012
75cl bottle. Pours a medium amber with a yellow-white head. Smells of citrus, hops, grapefruit, buckwheat and caramel. Tastes of a medium sweetness, strong non-lasting bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, syrupy texture with a rounded mouthfeel. Finishes semi-dry, slightly bitter, with a bit of alcohol warmth.

hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - APR 8, 2012
UPDATED: APR 13, 2012 Pours a dark golden amber. Nice off white head. Aromas of hops, malt, alcohol, grapes, sugar and pine. Initial taste is malty, sweet and spicy. Definite hop presence, sweet candied sugar, malts, spicy hops, slightly floral. Super complex. Quite a tasty brew. Mouthfeel is a tad oily and bitter. Worth a try if you can find it.

Beerdrinker79 (1968) - Idaho, USA - APR 8, 2012
750 ml. bottle- Thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours a very hazy orange with a huge pillowy white head, lacework is great. Aroma is malt, some hops, pretty subdued. The taste is big malt, the wheat makes it much smoother than typical barleywines at first, but becomes harsh as it warms, alcohol is very noticeable. Body is big, carbonation is medium. Overall I liked it, didn’t love it.

poisoneddwarf (2211) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - APR 8, 2012
750 ml bottle shared with brenn79. Aroma is perfumy, citrusy hops. Pours cloudy orange with a giant beige lacy head that recedes extremely slow. Taste starts out sweet before quickly turning bitter and remaining that way through a long-lasting finish. I’ve never had a wheat wine, let alone a buckwheat wine before, but this tastes pretty much like a barleywine. There’s some clove lurking in there along with a hint of caramel (which I imagine will come out even more forcefully as it warms). Carbonation is a little soft, body is medium to full. This is one whopper of a beer, definitely a sipper.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle:   Dirty caramel, dark and hazy, large pillowy tannish head, very sticky lacing.   Soft ctirus zest nose, pale hops, a smidgen of alcohol.   Looks great, but smells average.   Stale candyish hop flavors, a bit of alcohol, sudsy, bubbley, without much malt backing.   Seems very light, not thin, but light.   Has too much alcohol presense on the tongue.   Not very complex.   My burps reveal a very citrus peel like flavor.   Crap, this one one needs some damn CPR.   Where are the malts?   Buckwheat Wine?   Trying to be a Wheatwine like beverage?   Where is the body?   Thankfully nothing is really off on this one, but its airy, ripe with alcohol, and only delivers a spritzy citrus peel like flavor.   Needs more of a malt body, with caramel sweetness.   Paying $14 for this I feel I paid $7 too much.   FFS   Decent citrus like hops, but where is the god damn UMPH for this beer.

750ml bottle. What a great beer with layers of colour and an oily slight white head. Aroma is fantastic and the flavour even more so. Sits in the mouth and the warmth spreads to all parts. Mikkeller and Three Floyds rock.
