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.

A: The beer pours a cloudy golden body with a thick white head. As the beer fades, it leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

S: A good amount of funk, some wheat, fruity yeast and a tad bit of sourness.

T: Like the smell, I am picking up some strong fruit, some wheat and a tiny bit of funk

M: The beer is super smooth and goes down with ease.

O: A very good wit beer and will def get this again
