This was a brew I had on Saturday with Katie. I got this nasty virus on Saturday which involved not being able to keep anything down, which meant that I was completely and totally unproductive. Very annoying. But, once I felt decent, I had to open a brew. I mean, it was Saturday night and this was one that I was very excited to try. Especially because I tend to really like Mikkeller and I’ve never had anything from Three Floyds. Let’s pop this bad boy open.
Trivia: According to beerpulse.com, “Please join us for the Chicago release of Boogoop, a collaboration beer between Mikkeller and Three Floyds. The fourth collaboration between these breweries, Boogoop is a Buckwheat Wine, weighing in at 10.4% ABV.”
Random: This is a collaboration brew between Three Floyds and Mikkeller.
This brew poured with a huge and fluffy three finger off-white head. It dissipated painfully slow and left a huge amount of lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy mahogany color with no visible carbonation on it, due to the color. The nose had a decent amount of booze, a bit of wheat and hops. This almost smelled like a boozy IPA. The taste was unique. It started with a dose of sweetness, quickly followed with a generous amount of hops. There was a little bit of wheat, but not much. I honestly didn’t know what to make of this beer. The body was on the medium side with low carbonation. The finish was long with some booze warming on it. The booze was also very apparent on the taste. I would say that this beer was interesting, but I just don’t completely get it. It reminded me a little more of a barleywine than a wheatwine, but I would have it again.
