superspak (5018) - Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2012
750 ml bottle into snifter, smudged bottle date, but probably bottled late 2011. Pours very hazy red orange color, with a nice 2 finger dense khaki head with incredible retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Some nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big caramel, orange peel, grapefruit, honey, floral, pine, herbal, toasted biscuit, candy-like sweetness, wheat, brown sugar, and apple. Very nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of big caramel, orange peel, grapefruit, honey, toasted biscuit, pine, floral, apple, brown sugar, and herbal spiciness. Good sized pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pine, grapefruit, caramel, biscuit, orange peel, apple, honey, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a while. Great flavor balance with a good amount of floral bitterness that balances out nicely with the malts. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and thick mouthfeel as expected. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with hardly any warming present on the finish at all. Very smooth and easy to sip on. Overall this is a delicious wheat wine! Great flavor balance and good complexity; and extremely smooth to drink given the alcohol level.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2014 5/3 2012: 75 cl bottle @ home. Pours reddish amber with a huge off-white head that fades leaving some lacing. Aroma is malt, resiny and piny hops with maybe just a hint of buckwheat. Taste is malty with some hoppy bitterness and a bit of warming alcohol. 5/11 2014: 75 cl bottle @ home.

Easy drinking, plenty of hops, fairly thin body. Guess I didnt know what to expect with a buckwheat barleywine-maybe some spiciness or something from the malt? The malt shows but just slightly behind the hops.

bhensonb (14509) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
Capped 750 from Brewforia. Pours clear copper with a 4 finger creamy/bubbly yellow-beige head. Aromas of light pitted fruit and arguably resin. And a hint of brown sugar - the lacing head is cutting down the aroma. Nearly full body. Thin for a barley wine - but thats arguably a good thing. Flavor is light pitted fruit - kind of apricot/peach, resin, brown sugar, and beyond that a touch of roast malt. Easy drinking. Its arguably dry, but then the malt keeps peaking out of the fruit and hop. Very tasty drink IMO.

Geruch zitrushopfig, angenehm schwer harzig (Jubel!). Startet slich-lig. Mitte stark hopfenlig, aromatisch, Grapefruitbitter und schon etwas alkoholisch. Abgang s bittermalzig-trocken, alkoholisch, Pflaume. Prickelnd abgehend. Auergewhnliches Bier. Spitze!
