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.

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.

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.
