Chalice from bottle. Very rare bottle, orange japanese writing, simply says buckwheat and then brewed by rogue in small writing at the bottom. I called the brew house and they confirmed it is this beer. A: very nice, sweet, honey, malty, molasses, carmel,brown sugar, and bready. App: hazy, golden amber, one and a half finger, off-white head that disperses rather quickly. T: much lighter than the nose. Almost citrusy and slightly bitter on the front, mellows nicely into a lightly sweet, carmel, brown sugar, and bready back. Short lingering aftertaste of nutty, light sweetness. P: crisp bubbles that form into a very smooth finish. Very nice for a buckwheat.

650ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Memory banks rate. Partly because I never felt so ripped off before! Shit. That was a lot of money, for a very average beer.

Aroma is citrus hop, clove, bread and yeast. Taste is bitter with some yeast notes and a slight tang. Hazy gold body with a head that retains ok.

This ale is all about personal preference - will be polarising - no doubt in my mind this is another high quality Rogue brew - well done fellas - interesting taste - kinda soapy but pleasantly so - probably something I’d try once a year like all the Rogue range - some I’d drink a lot and others occasionally, like this.

Benzai (6432) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2014
Draught @ Beer Temple. Slightly unclear orange golden color, small white to off-white head that leaves fair lacing. Smell and taste malts, sweet grains, straw. Weak body, average to medium carbonation. Meh.

Poured light reddish amber with a disappearing frothy off white head. Aroma of heavy, sweet fruit and caramel malt. Medium body, flavour is lightly sweet berries and a dry, bitter finish.

Aroma Is very faint, touch of wheat. Golden clear color, no head to speak of, but some fizzyness at the surface. Taste is light, but nutty. Very crisp. Tasty. Another nice Rogue beer.

AbbeyRoade (259) - Missouri, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Eh. Kinda strange. Slight fruity hop barnyard aroma. Taste is initially toasty, nutty and moves to kinda of sour pilsner-esque yeasty ale. Not that good.

Bottle: Pours slightly hazed dark gold/amber with a small, off-white head. Sweet malt, butterscotch aroma. Lemon, honey, wheat taste. Very light and mild....sweet. Smooth and malty. Very pleasant.
