3.7/5  rDev -1.6%

I got this 22oz brown bottle at Sal's Liquors in Addison, IL for $7.99. No freshness date.

The beer poured a hazy pale gold color with less than a ½-finger's worth of white head that dissipated quickly to a thin rim and left very little lacing.

The beer had a fruity smell with a whiff of spicy yeast, but overall there wasn't much to the smell.

It has some fruit flavor, but overall it's more spicy than fruity. It has an earthiness to it as well. There's a touch of alcohol in the finish and 50 IBU's worth of bitterness.

Medium mouthfeel, crisp, and with a dry finish. Carbonation is on the high side.

Not sure how saison-y it is, but I liked it.

On-tap at revolution; Comes in a tulip glass

A - Golden with a slight brown hint to it. Bit thick and hazy looking. Looks to have medium body

S - Fragrant lemon, lemongrass, Belgian yeast. Really a great smelling Saison

T - Lemon peel, slight Belgian esters, and bubble gum are the first flavors we get. As the beer goes on the lemon increases, and there is a slight grassy flavor that comes through. Very crisp and refreshing Saison. You definitely can't tell this is 8.1% as there is no alcohol available.

MF - Medium body to it. Lots of carbonation in it that goes great with the flavor profile. Very crisp and refreshing

O - Great Saison by revolution. This brings the fresh flavors of lemon while having a slight funk. Could imagine drinking this over and over again on a nice summer day

A: Gorgeous vibrant orange. Completely opaque with hazy - the edges are bright yellow and the center is radiant orange. A glowing beer. The is a fizzy and foamy bright white, but denser than a traditional saison.

S: Very refreshing, subtle and pleasant. A very fresh aroma with little must or funk. Orange peel, lemon zest, and very subtle coriander - very not-funky belgian yeast - bready.

T: Similar to the aroma - not very complex, but very refreshing and surprisingly full. Orange, lemon, bread/biscuit, and yeast.

P: Very creamy and full bodied for the style, and softer carbonation - and it works

O: An interesting example of the style - not breaking any boundaries or records, but a very solid

Smells nice and spicy with that Spalt hop herbalness to it. Crisp, with floral notes as well. From what I could see (dark bar) it had a nice orange hue to it, cloudy. One thing I like about this beer is the balance of not just hops to malt but also yeast. It was a little sticky and syrupy but that's to be expected with a 7.5'er. I don't think I could drink more that one of these in a setting but, that's not always a bad thing.
I usually don't dig saisons but this one I liked.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Decent and serviceable though not exceptional saison. This batch weighed in at 8.1%. It hits the style, apple flavour commingles with orange and grapefruit. Lacey, farmhouse aroma as compared to a peppery spicy saison aroma. Not too drinkable.

3.9/5  rDev +3.7%

Appearance: Good yellow-orange hue with great head and good lacing. Decent carbonation as well.

Smell: Standard hops and citrus. Lots of grapes as well. Very clean.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Good flavors. This was a while ago, but I definitely remember that it hits on all the hop/citrus notes. It almost remembers me of an IPA, but his has very earthy clay notes as well.

Overall Drinkability: A very good beer with a great name.

On tap at Revolution brewpub.

A - Golden color with a lively foam. Some lacing is noted.

S - Scents of fresh lemon and grain.

T - Flavor is tangy and slightly sour. borders on the profile of a wild ale. Finishes with a wheat flavor.

M - Light feel, crisp, and finishes with mild tartness.

O - Overall solid saison and probably my favorite offering at Revolution.

4.28/5  rDev +13.8%

Served on tap at the brew pub in a tulip glass.

This beer is a cloudy, glowing apricot with a thin layer of white head.

The nose is very close to a hefe. I'm picking out chalky citrus, pine, spicy esters, candied fruits, and a tiny bit of alcohol.

The taste follows the nose. Chalky fruits with hits of pine, esters, and more citrus. This isn't striking me as a saison, but it is tasty. It's refreshing and finishes dry and a little bitter.

The mouthfeel is creamy and close to full with a moderate to low level of carbonation.

A tasty brew for sure, but I think it borders a weird hefe/saison vortex. Worth trying and really easy to put down.
