This is a wonderfully tasty and refreshing brew! Nice cloudy orange hue with a frothy white head. The flavors are somewhat fruity and citrus. This one is very fresh-tasting. My kind of brew all the way!

Had this at the Bon Vivant Beer Lovers Club on 8-29-03. This was labeled as Morimoto Soba, and not as Buckwheat Ale. Orangish brown with a small tan head. The nose is a fruity and nutty mix. The taste is odd. It seems kindy of woody or earthy and mixed with citrus and hops. Smooth finish though but leaves some sourness or tartness behind. Decent beer.

Straw-like color with a mild haze. Mild sour fruity aroma. Fairly sweet flavor with a splash of Arnold Oat nut bread. Decent hops with a dash of Rogue's signature bite. Good for a wheat and would be nice with some spicy asian cuisine. Otherwise, an average beer.

Not much aroma going on here. Looks good, though with a dark golden body and a cute frothy head. Some nuttiness going on with mild hoppiness too. The crystal hops give a crispness to this beer, that makes it for a refreshing warm-weather beer. Somewhat boring as a beer goes, but not bad.

[Morimoto Soba] I don't really see anything all that special about this beer - it's kind of like an APA with some extra wheaty/bready taste to it - a good APA? yes, but nothing all that unique, and certainly nothing "stand out."

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2003 I think this beer is better than it's rating. This has an extremely creamy, fluffy mouthfeel. Excellent balance. Kind of wheaty.

This is an odd brew. The flavor is, well, not the greatest, but amazing. This is definitly a brew to try.

Hoppy, buckwheat aroma. Someone pass the maple syrup! Orange-amber cloudy beer with a faint head. Flavor is well balanced between the bitterness of hops and buckwheat and the sweetness of the malt. Palate is medium and fits the beer well.

I figured this to be a bitter more than an herv veggie. Crisp, bitter, smoothe. Kind of grainy at times. I swear this was more of a bitter. oh well.

Slight offwhite head. Hazey orange color. Head fades quickly. Med/light body. Nose is grainy , slightly citrusy with a certain spiceyness to it. nice roasty, nutty flavors and some graininess coming from the buckwheat. finish is dry and clean. Ya know i love rogue products. Whats up with the renaming of their brews? I think thats bullshit! This is bottled as Soba Ale. I like it, as the buckwheat. I like it as the soba also, but lets stick to the original names, OK?!
