12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours very hazy golden straw color with a small 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, coriander, clove, wheat, bread, light bubblegum, floral, earth, and yeast esters. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of lemon, orange zest, coriander, wheat, clove, bread, floral, pepper, light bubblegum, earth, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of citrus, coriander, clove, wheat, bread, light bubblegum, earth, and yeast spices on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of flavors; with a nice malt/spice balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. A touch watery, but its not too bad. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good witbier. Nice flavor balance and complexity; and extremely smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Clouded golden apricot body looks great wispy bright egg shell white head, fine speckled lacing down the sides of my glass. Aroma has heavy yeast driven and spicy notes of coriander and orange peel additions. The yeast notes and spice additions combine into this chalky, citric, chamomile tea like quality. Flavor has soft bitterness that tastes floral, spicy coriander, citric notes, lavender herbal quality very complex well made witbier maybe too much spice for some witbier drinkers but in my opinion it stays balanced. Mouthfeel, I've enjoyed every Revolution beer I've tasted so far, the textures here are perfect slightly creamy edge from the wheat additions, spicy adds a nice dry finish with some upfront wheat notes, bitter orange peel levels the malt layers out as well. A great food and drink beer, this would pair well with so many different dishes rosemary/garlic braised lamb, white fish, any chicken dish. Overall a complex refreshing well executed witbier canned in Chicago.

(Served in a strange)
A- This beer pours a slightly hazy yellow lemon body with a sticky head of snow white and a gentle carbonation.
S- The clean slightly yeasty aroma has some lemon pith hints to it with a dried orange note in the finish. There are some grassy hop hints that peek through as it opens.
T- The dry yeasty flavor has a lemon tartness that takes on some orange characters as it warms. There is a dry spicy note in the finish with a hop tartness lingering a moment.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz that compliments the hops in the finish.
O- The slightly sweet beer has a nice perceived dryness with the spice in the finish. This beer is refreshing and has a nice taste but it is a meal in a glass.

The color is a very hazy gold-amber, leaning toward gold but pushing just a bit darker. A fluffy white head develops, sitting somewhere near one finger high. It's craggy and gets dense, fading to a heavy island of foam. Lacing is left mostly in a broken ring at the top and a mixture of spotting and lacing to about halway down.
The nose is strong enough, though it doesn't pop. It does offer some of the coriander notes, but the yeast gives me a light dusty note most prominenently. Wheat makes an evident backbone. There is a bit of citrus, but it comes out more strongly in the flavor.
That said, everything melds very nicely on the tongue. The spices, citrus, yeast, and wheat are all more pronounced in the taste and complement each other nicely as well as making for some complexity in the style. There's a touch of lemon zest in the back. This is well-tuned, with yeast offering softer notes and backing off on some that many people can't get into. The nice, dusty sort of earthiness adds to softness and balance.
The mouthfeel is likewise soft with a nice flow to it in a light body. It doesn't forsake crispness. This is a refreshing beer and well made to style.

Served at a Revolution brew dinner.
White foamy head and a yeasty haziness.
Lemon peel on the nose, coriander and clean.
Modest coriander, orange peel and notes of bread.
Unassuming, refreshing, crisp and clean. A delicious wit I would love to serve up in the warmer months.

The Bottom Up is a decent Witbier. The beer poured a clear golden as I was careful not to pour a lot of settlement into my glass. The scent carries faint lemony citrus. The taste has some bitter characteristics that mesh well with the lemon flare. The mouthfeel is lighter in body and the carbonation is good. Overall it is a decent beer.
