This beer rocks! Clear, deep golden ale. Medium-sized, off-white head with decent lacework. The aroma is slightly fruity, sweet and rich. The flavor is of buckwheat pancakes and buttery malt. Perfectly-balanced. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and very soft carbonation. Lengthy, lightly bitter, crisp, dry finish. I'm a sucker for grains other than corn and rice. I was raised in Kansas and was led to believe that wheat was king and all other grains, especially barley, were sub-standard. I always loved, course, harsh buckwheat pancakes and I love this brew! World-class!

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - JUN 18, 2003
hazy amber copper with as frothy bubbly head. aroma was a blend of floral hops and a musty note that I asumed was the buckwheat. malty start with a smooth tart body and a dry finish with a lingering hop aftertaste. good in an unexceptional kind of way.

Well this will be the first beer I have every liked in the Spice/Herb/Vegetable category. I think that is because this is more of a wheat beer than anything else. Nice aroma of what I guess is roasted buckwheat(?). Pours up rather pale golden with a nice fluffy white head. Head is nicely retained and there is fairly heavy lacing. Flavor is sweet malt, and rather oaty. Not much hops. Rather pleasent.

Ernest (6319) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2011 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium to dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (dough), with a light note of honeydew. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A pleasant and simple quaffer, nothing more or less.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 10, 2003
Cloudy yellow color with a lot of suspended yeast.Unclear if it was my pour or if it's just a very yeasty brew.Aroma was hoppy,sweet with a slight aroma of citrus in it as well.Lemon i believe.Very smooth brew with a definate hop tase that is mellow and non over powering.Slight lemon taste,very slight you haveto almost look for it to be there.The yeast doesn't seem to be a problem for taste it stay's away from disrupting the taste.the feel in the mouth is kind of watery thin almost as if this would be a dead brew without the hops.There is a slight hop after taste that fades some what slowly.Overall it's not a bad brew it's pretty decent but i think there are better brews like this one out there.

Little to no head. Slight bitterness throughout. Slight nutty flavor from the buckwheat. A very toned down pale ale. Good brew.

thedm (4968) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 5, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized off white bubbles that as it receded left a fair lacing. Its body was a cloudy amber color with just a little carbonation rising in the middle of the glass. It has aroma of hops. It had a initially slightly bitter taste that finished much more strongly. It was just an OK brew for me. Not one I'd seek out again.

hotstuff (4236) - Indiana, USA - MAY 2, 2003
This particular wheat beer did not impress me all that much and I like wheat beers. It poured a medium, creamy head. It had a cloudy appearance to it. It had a somewhat of a fruity, citrusy aroma to it. There was some bitterness noted with this brew. It had an aftertaste that lingered, but it was not an overwhelming aftertaste.
