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

Revolution is a brewery you can really get behind. All their beers are very good, and they know their food as well. This is a dangerously drinkable Wit. Chugable even! Funky hay smell with a taste of bread and candied orange zest. The balance is really what makes this beer. My only gripe is the cost, because you can just polish these off! Was it Marx who said opiates are the beer of the masses??

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy, light green-ish gold with a two finger clump of bright white foam clinging to the top of the glass. Retention was good and lacing was appropriate.

S: Typically fruity/spicy Wit yeast aromas with a bit of toasty grain and fresh citrus zest.

T: See above. Very clean and simple. No cloyingly sweet citrus flavors to be had. Very natural.

M: Medium bodied with a nicely spicy yeasty edge.

O: This is a perfectly quaffable summer Wit beer. Can't wait to see how it fares during the colder fall/winter Chicago months.
