3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared at my tasting on May 29, 2010. Thanks Jonathan!
Hazy orange with a decent head and lacing. OatGoop has a very complex aroma with scents of hops, pine, honey, resin, and alcohol, among other aromas. The beer is sweet and has a caramel aspect to it. This seems to be somewhat consistent with the other wheatwines I’ve tried so far. The body is too thin, even for a wheatwine. The sweetness becomes overbearing after a few ounces. This is a good beer to share several ways at a tasting.

Pors deep amber with a small off-white nose. Good lacing. Hoppy nose with notes of orange, caramel and citrus. Sweet flavor with bread, caramel, orange and citrus. Full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. Excellent.

I like this much more than the Boogoop. But I have also been sitting on this for at least 18 months-ish. Very smooth with deep malt character. Not too heavy. I wanna know this recipe because it far exceeded my expectations. Still some juicy slit citrus hops bouncing around. Solid effort. Might be a little sour note n the back end

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, malty, hoppy nose with red fruit, citrus, orange marmalade, treacle, caramel and a touch of black-currant. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, treacle, bitter orange marmalade, dried apricots and loads of citric hops. Quite vinous finish with some warming alcohol. Full body, slightly oily mouthfeel. Fairly sweet. It’s a bit hard to pinpoint the oat character through all the hops. Quite an impressive beer. Very nice.

Last pour at GTMW. Orange-brown, some haze. Soapy, steady head. FFF mega clean tropical hop aroma. A hoppy beast. Sticky finish, pretty big beer. A tad brutal for 2pm, but probably delightful to sip on late night. Awesome, but not as much depth as some of FFF’s offerings.

Sampled at the StL RB gathering. It poured a hazy golden color with a thick white head. The aroma was of oats, oranges and some hop bitters with spices. The taste was bitter, sweet fruits spices, grass and some alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle shared by beernbourbon- thanks again, Vince! Pours a semi-cloudy amber with almost no head. Aroma of caramel malts, brown sugar, tea, cereal, dusty wooden shelves, and some citrus in the background. Flavor of caramel, tea, brown sugar, syrup, and grapefruit citrus. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, sticky mouthfeel. Good but not great, maybe because my palate was exhausted by the point I tried it. I have another one to try again sometime.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from cool-looking tall bottle at 2nd STL Ratebeer Gathering, thanks beernbourbon! Poured a mostly clear, deep reddish amber color with firm white foam and plenty of nice lace (which makes sense because adding oats to any recipe increases the protein for better head-retention and fuller mouthfeel.) A great-looking beer. Aromas of malt, caramel, citrus, flowery and slightly spicy hops, perfumey alcohol. Rich amber malt sweetness, bready and toasty, some grapefruit zest bitterness, perhaps a bit too much residual sugar. An interesting barleywine profile, but with oats as the main cereal grain. Medium body, high carbonation, "chewy" palate, lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Very tasty and memorable.
