Member Ratings and Notes

n: moist wheat bread, damp wood, some orange citrus. The buckwheat is main element - smells like wheat in a very damp field.


t: soft and nicely semi-sweet initially, but the middle is where the buckwheat asserts itself; it has a day old coffee taste to it. Kinda sweet + bitter + sour all at the same time with some vanilla creamer. Campfire burnt marshmallow and dark chocolate covered coffee bean finish. Interesting, I like the experimental aspect to this.  [B-.]


n: Four grain bread dough.  Bit of honey.


p:  Sourdough bread.  Raw grains and lemon.  Very sweet in the finish.  Kero syrup-y.  Wierd but not offensive.  Just different.


Who shot Buckwheat?  Guess that's me.
