Not what I expected at all. I got this on tap at the brew pub and it came in a tulip glass. A golden color with no head and very minimal lacing. It smells and tastes sour with no maltiness. After reading some other reviews from a longtime ago that thought the lines may be infected, I think it's not that, it's just a bad beer.

The difficult journey of creating an ancient Belgian style in American has conquered those at Revolution. The Coup D'Etat was a Saison to all those who have never..."Saison'ed" before. The yeast smell was the first set-off of cheese, stinky feet, and stale bread. Once these profiles entered my palate I was unable to get to the rest of the beer. Although the beer was drinkable, it had a viscous character that made it troubling on a hot day. Not the description you want to give to a Saison.

I had this in the brewpub on tap. It was served in a tulip glass.

This beer poured a golden coler but the head quickly disappeared and left no lacing to be had.

The smell was of sour grapes and not at all what I expected. I could not get any malt smell because the sourness was overpowering.

Very tart sour taste, low carbonation and not balanced at all. I'm thinking this beer has an infection or the beer lines aren't clean because this is not what I expected in a Saison.

Pours a white head. Color is a hazed sunset golden orange/yellow.

Aroma: Lots of yeast and spice. Bready. Some pepper. Belgiany. Cloves.

Taste: Lots of spices. It is very bready and yeasty. It tastes Belgian, but not very saison-like. Tastes more like a golden ale.

Mouthfeel: Dry and spiced. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends with a lot of spice.

Overall, not a fan of this one. Too heavy of a body and not enough barnyard funk.

A- pours a hazed burnt orange amber color with two fingers of off white head. Decent head retention no lacing.

S- very subdued nose. Wheat notes with a peachy estery yeast character. Some subtle spice notes with a chaulky yeast. Almost a lager like quality.

T- super sweet peach syrup with spice notes up front. Chaulky dusty yeast in the middle with a grain flavor. Astringent booze on the finish. Unbalanced brew and much to sweet.

MF- syrupy mouthfeel with a medium body. Average carbonation.

D- a little cloying and disjointed not very drinkable.

22 oz. bomber served in a FW tulip.

A: Pours a clear golden color with light amber hues. A frothy white head forms on the pour and recedes slowly to a thin cap. Thick sheets of lace are left down the glass.

S: Musty yeast, some slight peppery notes with some peach fuzz fruitiness. There are some bready malts as well.

T: Definite yeasty must up front with an odd peach sweetness to it. Tastes like some concentrated syrup that goes into a snow cone. It definitely doesn't give off pleasant flavors as it completely wipes out the yeast and would be even more sweet if it wasn't for the cracker malts that slightly cut it.

M: Medium bodied with a slight sticky quality to it. Medium carbonation with a drying finish.

O: The syrupy sweetness in the taste was definitely off-putting and it completely dominated the other flavor components. Not that balanced. Nice on the nose. but not taste.

Picked up this bomber at my local Jewel Grocery store. I love how they've expanded their beer selection.

Clear, dull, copper copper. Very quick head and no residual foam. There's a few lazy pillars of bubbles.

Earthy, light hops, chalky dry smelling yeast. Mildly toasted, crisp crackers. maybe a little dry caramel.

Dry, but syrupy palate. Chalky, dry fruit yeast flavor. A little alcoholic heat. The finish is crackers, toasty, caramel, and faint grass.

Not a bad saison, but I probably won't buy this again.
