4/5 rDev +8.4%
Can poured into Darkness tulip.
A- Hazy light golden color with a thin light, white head that dissipates very slowly. The head just kind of hovers.
S- Belgian yeast, coriander, and clove dominate the nose with a subtle orange pop. Smells quite rich, very inviting.
T- Great, rich yeast off the top with coriander clove to round out initial taste. Rich Belgian yeast with slight malt to balance everything out. Extremely crisp.
M- Medium bodied with a pretty dry finish. Quite nice with all of the spices present keeps me coming back for more.
O- very nice wit. Lovely spring/summer ale very crisp with plenty of spice. Not overly light yet very refreshing. Cheers.

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.

A - pours a clear light yellow with an ephemeral white head. Some lace. Bubbly.
S - Nice aroma of Belgian spicy yeast (clove), corriander, orange peel, soft bready malt.
T - is just like the aroma. It's clove and orange peel upfront with a mild bready finish. Pleasant spicy citrus aftertaste.
M - light body with moderate carbonation. Slightly numbing from the clove phenol.
O - this is an easy drinking, light Wit beer that has a pleasant Belgian flavor and aroma. Great summer beer that I'd gladly consume in any season.

Nice color and a white head (that falls quite quickly). Nose is good; bready and bubble gum. Flavor is smooth and consistent. Nice lemon tones that are a bit high. It all works though. Smooth feel. Very easy drinker. Nice job on a difficult style to produce.

Presentation: Revolution has really eye-catching cans with awesome graphics. Can gives a small description of the beer, ABV info, web info, and brewery info.
Appearance: I poured this out of its 12oz can into a 16oz English pint. Bottom Up pours out a hazy hay yellow with a ½ finger white foam head of a light density. Head retention was 1min before fading into a very thin ring. Not much lacing.
Smell/Aroma: Smells of coriander and spices with definite yeast-like wheat scent. Has a slight clove and sour scent with hints of citrus fruit and bubble gum.
Flavor/Taste: Taste is very citrus sweet on the front end with hints of bubble gum orange and coriander spiciness. This fades to a nice sour wheat flavor that ends with a slight spice and hop bite on the finish.
MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied with a very smooth and a very crisp carbonated feel. Very very drinkable.
Overall/Comments: A very good representation of the style with a very nice flavor profile. Very refreshing and tasty. This would make an excellent summer beer! Classified as a Witbier at 4.5% ABV. Consumed 2-18-13.
