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?!

(Packaged as Morimoto Soba Ale): Slight hazy amber body with small creamy off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, lemon tart, some grapefruit, ginger. Taste is mildly sweet, tart, ginger, finishing mildly earthy bitter. Carbonation adds zing to the medium body.

An enjoyable ale with some malts up front and a slightly hoppy finish. Pretty light and mildly sweet. Bitter finish. A distinct hoppy flavor remains an integral part of rogue ales.

Had this bottled as Morimoto Soba ale. I believe it is the same brew. Lasting head topping a nice light orange beer. Very nice. Crisp, dry, acidic citrus up front offset by a mild malt sweetness. Finishes a tad harsh. I'd certainly opt for a morimoto over the usual japanese lagers if I found it at a sushi restaurant.

Fascinating, to be sure. And with only 8 ingredients, this could be Rogue's simplest beer yet. All he better, IMO. Nice nutty wheatiness with lemon tang, very refreshing. Moderate body. Quite bitter close, but not long lasting.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2004 Interesting ale and quite different from the other Rogues I've had. This one has very strong grainy nutty aroma and flavor. I actually enjoyed it as it paired nicely with the pizza I had for dinner. Nice thick snow white head and straw colored body. Showed some characteristics of a german lager with its nutty grains. Hops also added nicely to the aroma and produced a slight bitterness. A smokiness was also present. I really enjoyed this ale.
