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.

chinchill (3344) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2015
1/2 of a 22 oz bottle served in a pint glass (from notes). A: Amber; slightly hazy; fine white head has excellent retention. S: Has a very appealing aroma mainly from light toasted malt but also, I believe, from the soba (buckwheat). T: follows aroma, with just hints of the earthiness and spiciness found in bolder Rogue brews. I thought the flavor profile was excellent for a beer designed to be consumed with Asian food. M: Enough carbonation (medium) to be a little crisp and refreshing, especially with the surprisingly dry finish. Medium body. O: Not enough complexity to be great, but a truly fine tasting beer that, as one might expect, was an excellent pairing with sushi. Highly drinkable. Seemed to be neither harmed nor helped by warming.

Garrold (3017) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle. As Rogue Buckwheat Ale. Curious Hop, Otley. Murky orange. With a little help it keeps a thick, bubbly, off white head. Spicy lager type malts on the nose. Bit of wheat. Dig deep and there’s a blueberryish hop note. Taste is light dry. Hint of sweet. Decent body. Finishes with a little grassy bitterness. Not a lot going on, but I sort of enjoyed it for that. Probably glad I didn’t go for the bomber, though.

minutemat (2908) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2015
355ml bottle, take-out from Birmingham Beer Bash 2015. One of the lucky few that weren’t cracked open by Simon F on the train back home. Pours hazy amber with thin white head. Grainy nondescript aroma. Taste is fluffy wheat, grain, malt, soft texture.. pleasant but hard to distinguish much else.

모리모토x로그 콜라보레이션 - 소바 에일 4.8% ABV 처음엔 간장맛이 나려나,했었는& 알고보니 메밀을 집어넣은 맥주. 된장에 쓸 발효 콩을 갈아 맥주에 넣은 듯 맥주안에 메밀 입자가 둥둥 떠 다닌다. 발효 과정 때문에 로스팅된 메밀에서 무척 익숙한 동양적 맛이 스며 나오는데 다름아닌 감칠맛. 배가 부른데도 참을수 없는 식욕을 돌게하는 맥주. 역시 튀김음식등과&# 페어링 하기에 좋은 맥주. 개인적으로는 플로랄 한 향을 함께 살리면 최적이 아닐까,하는 생각 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot
