Dark ruby red beer, cloudy, huge amount of head that sticks around. Very nice. Very floral hoppy aroma. A little fruitiness and malt too. Smells delicious. Floral hoppiness up front, then strong bitterness. Taste is very good. Getting some fruit, some spiciness, earthiness, all backed up by some nice malt. A slightly soapy dry finish is the only flaw to me. Glad I bought a few of these. Very good.

blipp (8181) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 19, 2012
Bottle shared by someone at a tasting. Pours amber with an off white head. Nice bright hoppy aroma, with piney notes and a wheaty base. The flavor has piney hops, light sweetness, and an odd but pleasant wheaty base that must be the buckwheat. Good stuff.

burg326 (5370) - Florida, USA - APR 16, 2012
750ml bottle that poured an opaque golden orange color, aromas of citrus, spice, resin, and some booze. Flavors are a cornucopia of fruits, syrup, and bozzy aftertaste. Interesting collaboration, glad I got to try it.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Poured a hazy, reddish, amber, with a fluffy off-white head. Smell is very floral, hints of pine sap, grass, caramel, and rice. Taste is very smooth and well-balanced. Tastes of caramel, slight alcohol, hops, and a moderately bitter finish. Alcohol is hidden dangerously and this barley wine is highly drinkable. Very delicious.

davidm (2069) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
On tap at Archive, Brisbane. Great, malty, and very well balanced. Aromas of caramel, cherries, grain, grass, with hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, with bitter and sour notes, and very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Amber, cloudy, with a frothy head

Purchased at In Fine Spirits in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a Saturday night during a time that I have to work, which is kind of a bummer, but less so due to this brew. Appearance a very cloudy, slightly thick, dark golden amber with a rich frothy white head that laces to the glass. Aroma of spices, definite citrus, there’s a unique quality that I can attribute to ’fruity’ that is interesting. It smells pretty good. Taste is pretty bitter, huge grapefruit notes, pine, citrus, you can tell it’s a high ABV brew, and it is good but not very very good. Happy to have enjoyed.

Dashimus (227) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2012
Pours as a orange red cloudy beer. Aroma of bitter oranges and spices. Enduring taste with strong citrus flavours. Despite lightness, not an easy drink.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2012
Bomber bottle: Pours a mostly clear amber with ruby tones and a small frothy off-white heat that is mostly lasting. Malty aroma has a hop presence of citrus and pine. Malty sweet flavor has hints of orange peel, sugar and spicy hops. Creamy texture with a mild dry bitterness throughout. Very flavorful and a good beer to relax and sip to.

Scopey (12535) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2012
Tap at BrewDog Camden. It pours hazy orange, with a foamy white head. The nose is varnish, lots of orange citrus, marmalade, kumquat, mandarin and touch of spice. The taste is tangy orange, kumquat, apricot, spice (including cinnamon), caramel, citrus peel, resin, pine, leaf, bitterness, plum, golden syrup and alcohol warmth, with a dry, citric finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Liked this one quite a bit. Very drinkable.
