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.

Nice product! This is the second Revolution I tried from a can and similar to the first, it is a great product that seems to benefit from canning.

It smells nice as soon as you open the can and it pours a nice light golden yellow. The head is thin, like the IPA from revolution, but like the IPA, the light lacing is nice.

The taste is correct and well balanced, with just a light yeasty witbier taste. The aftertaste is a nice "wanna have more" taste.

Overall, this is another great canned creation that I would want to have again.

I ordered this along with some bacon fat popcorn at the Revolution Brewpub in Chicago. Served in a pint glass for $5.

The beer poured a hazy gold color with a ½-finger of white head that lasted about a minute before receding to a thin rim. Very nice lacing.

Citrus, wheat, yeast, and spicy aroma.

Very citrusy flavor, most;y orange from the orange peel, but also with other tropical fruit flavors. The wheat and Belgian yeast give it a slightly sour twang and the coriander ends up spicing the whole thing up. Very well done.

Medium bodied, smooth, and with refreshingly crisp carbonation.

I'm adding this one to my already growing list of good beers from this brewery.

12oz can, pours golden with surprising clarity, mild haze. Thinner white head leaves a little lacing on the glass. Aromas are bready yeast, wheat, fruity belgian yeast, orange. Tastes are fruity, juicy fruit gum, wheat, yeast, clove, orange. Medium body, moderate carbonation, finishes nice & clean. Overall, pretty average here, but well put together.

12oz. can poured into a pint glass.

(A)- Pours a hazy goldenrod color. Some good white froth and lace.

(S)- A lightly spicy biscuit and clove with some subtle lemon sweetness.

(T)- Similar to the smell. A nicely crisp lightly spicy biscuit, clove, and ever so mildly sweet lemon.

(M)- A nice crisp carbonation level. A good balance and feel for the style overall.

(O)- Overall, I quite like this. An easy favorite over something like Blue Moon, particularly since it is made locally.

Hazy yellow color with a finger of bright white beady head. Head is much smaller than expected for a wit and fades rather quickly. Fruity yeasty grainy and wheaty nose, some barnyard and saison like funk along with some bubblegum.

Really unique nice and refreshing. Medicinal up front whisps into a sweet grainy flavor. Mild citrus fruits, semi sour, finishes with a wheaty snap. Crisp and refreshing, touch of spice but doesnt hurt the throat at all. Really really nice actually. Complex, fruity, grainy, wheaty, with just the right touch of yeast snap and or spice. Really well balanced and whispy. Full of flavor, complex, and drinkable.

This beer also has a really nice rich mouthfeel. its great.
