look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Slightly hazey banana peel yellow and brass. Quick head and a ring of foam for a it. Average bubbling.

Banana, effervescent cloves, some more spice, fruity yeast, and lightly toasted wheat malt aroma.

Soft bodied brew from start to finish. Toasty, wheaty, and yeasty. Not a lot of coriander and oranger peel flavors. Some banana peel. Easy to drink and enjoy.

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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

12 oz can poured into dogfish snifter

Pours clear golden. Small head. Smells grainy,banana, some coriander and clove, sweet. Taste has that nice clean Belgian yeast, on the lighter side to match the appearance. This was pretty one dimensional but solid nonetheless. It's extremely drinkable and I can see myself buying it for a group of people on a warm summer day.

12oz can into a tulip.

A: Pours a relatively clear mellow gold with a nice white head. Not much retention.

S: Soapy yeast and stone fruit, with a good dose of pleasant clovey esters. Light and sweet.

T: Taste follows the nose - bright and sweet grain, some mild coriander-like spiciness, a bit floral, crisp finish.

M: Light-bodied with crisp carbonation.

O: An entirely serviceable wit.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Reviewed from notes. Bought a can at the Root Cellar on a recent trip to Cincinnati. Poured from can into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Hazy pale yellow with a one-finger white head, and a bit of visible carbonation.

S: Grainy, wheat-y, yeasty, and maybe a smidge of hops.

T: Pilsner malt, a little lemony tang, grainy. Clean, almost absent, finish.

M: Light body, mild carbonation sensation, low to no alcohol presence.

O: Not terribly exciting, but not my favorite style either. Glad to have tried it, but probably won't again. On the upside, a very cool can.

Revolution is a new brewery to me, but I've been very impressed so far. Picked up a 6er of this stuff while in Chicago visiting family.

Served in an Elysian tulip.

A: Poured a very saturatedly cloudy, apricot with added pepper color, with quite a bit of froth and web-like lacing left on the glass.

S: Lots of spices, but it wasn't as coriander heavy as I'm used to with this style which was a good change of pace. Some bubble gum, apricots, coriander, and fresh wheat. Moderate potency.

T: Extremely bubble gum-like on the finish. Seriously, my sinuses were welcomed with fumes of peach/apricot/coriander Bubbalicious. I also got a bit of white pepper in there as well that was most welcome.

M: The finish along made this one for me. Nothing overly sweet or cloying, great carbonation bill, and the lacing was substantial.

O: Like I stated from the onset, Revolution brews some good shit.
