MadRobin (2843) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - APR 12, 2012
On tap 5 oz. sample at Churchill's Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA. Clear, deep amber copper with excellent lacing. Citrusy aroma of orange and lime peel with wheat and caramel. Taste of sweet citrus (more lemon than orange), wheat, light fruit, toasted malt and some alcohol. Full body with average carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma ctric de llpol. Comena amb un sabor dol que es converteix rpidament en amarg, que dura molt a la boca. Barley wine atpic. Carbonataci suau, bon cos. Bona cervesa.

Wow. Big hop nose, sweetness and booze underneath. Surprisingly really carbonated.The pine and citrus of the hops sit back with the sweetness, however the bitterness remains as you sit. Good drinker,

AKSalmon (74) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
Picked up this one at Beers Of Europe. Poured into a tulip glass, has the appearance of burnt orange that is opaque. Aroma is earthy with a hint of citrus. Flavour is bitter orange like chewing on bits of orange peels. Palate is smoth and a little oily. Overall a good beer if you like very bitter bitter beers.

delnoche (505) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - APR 9, 2012
75cl bottle shared with AKSalmon. Poured into a tulip. Opaque dark orange with thick creamy tan head. Aroma is intensly hoppy, orange peel. Flavor is very strong hops with a good deal of orange and an alcohol kick. Finish is lasting dryness. Palate is very sticky with medium carbonation. This is a pretty intense, warming brew.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 9, 2012
75cl bottle. Pours a medium amber with a yellow-white head. Smells of citrus, hops, grapefruit, buckwheat and caramel. Tastes of a medium sweetness, strong non-lasting bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, syrupy texture with a rounded mouthfeel. Finishes semi-dry, slightly bitter, with a bit of alcohol warmth.

hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - APR 8, 2012
UPDATED: APR 13, 2012 Pours a dark golden amber. Nice off white head. Aromas of hops, malt, alcohol, grapes, sugar and pine. Initial taste is malty, sweet and spicy. Definite hop presence, sweet candied sugar, malts, spicy hops, slightly floral. Super complex. Quite a tasty brew. Mouthfeel is a tad oily and bitter. Worth a try if you can find it.

Beerdrinker79 (2087) - Idaho, USA - APR 8, 2012
750 ml. bottle- Thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours a very hazy orange with a huge pillowy white head, lacework is great. Aroma is malt, some hops, pretty subdued. The taste is big malt, the wheat makes it much smoother than typical barleywines at first, but becomes harsh as it warms, alcohol is very noticeable. Body is big, carbonation is medium. Overall I liked it, didnt love it.

750 ml bottle shared with brenn79. Aroma is perfumy, citrusy hops. Pours cloudy orange with a giant beige lacy head that recedes extremely slow. Taste starts out sweet before quickly turning bitter and remaining that way through a long-lasting finish. Ive never had a wheat wine, let alone a buckwheat wine before, but this tastes pretty much like a barleywine. Theres some clove lurking in there along with a hint of caramel (which I imagine will come out even more forcefully as it warms). Carbonation is a little soft, body is medium to full. This is one whopper of a beer, definitely a sipper.
