2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pint at Old Fashioned. Unfiltered burgundy-brown body. Steady creamy beige head. I’m not really a buckwheat beer expert, my only associations are the Rogue beer and Sara. Buttery caramel toffee...pretty shabby offering. Amber cream ale notes..really tastes like an unimpressive homebrew. Some resiny woody tones, but not enough to rescue it from the depths of sub-mediocrity. Buttery sweet, ringwood brutality.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draught at the Sweet Mullets brewery in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear brownish copper colored brew with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of cheddar cheese, wild floral hops, dark pitted fruits and a touch of breakfast cereal. Taste is medium bodied and where the buckwheat floral really shines. Malty, floral and a touch of multi-grain cereal with touch of touch of dried molasses. Finish is well-balanced, some short lived mild bitterness with a toasted multi-grain malt aftertaste. Try this with some toasted wheat bread with a little buckwheat honey. These two will do great together.
