I tried this the other day and have to reccomend it to anybody who loves wheat beers. The soba brought a unique profile to the beer, an almost nutty wheat quality that is unlike anything else i have had. It was a nice accompnaiment to baked tilapia with citrus pesto and lemon/almod/cranberry quinoa.
I loved it but it will not be for everyone. However it is worth a try.
This is one of my favorite beers. Buckwheat gives such a unique, clean taste. You should also check out the black Soba ale sometime, it's also very good. Rogue is one of my favorite breweries, I have yet to be disappointed.
I boughtit at the Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido CA. Rogue is based out of Oregon yet they distribute throughout the country. Some of their beers are harder to find then pothers. i would imagine you could get the Morimota series at his restaurants in NY and PHI.
I will have to try the black soba ale.
I just saw it for the first time when I was at the Food Network for the taping of an Iron Chef America episode. Chef Morimoto served it to the judges with one of his courses, one of the judges almost finshed their full glass in less than a minute. It looked and sounds pretty tasty and I can't wait to try it since everything by Rogue is very good.
