look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz can into a wine glass.

A: Glowing garnet with a small lightly pink head.

S: Leafy, mildly sweet hibiscus, some mild witbier esters, grain.

T: Taste brings slight fruity tartness, some floral notes, light clove, bready malt.

M: Light-bodied with fine carbonation.

O: A nice summer beer, somewhat akin to a berliner weisse. A sour mash/lactic fermentation would really push this into awesomeness.

Serving type: can

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Copper. Decent carbonation, but no lacing or foam. Flat.

Smell: Sour lemon and orange rind. Some coriander. No hibiscus...

Taste/Mouthfeel: Tangy honey and black pepper. Molasses finish. Very bitter in the finish. Metallic and skunked. Pretty good initially, but I hate the finish. Sticky mouthfeel.

Overall: Very disappointing, especially for Revolution.

I have to say, this is a very fun herbed/spiced ale. It pours a beautiful color, with little head. It's a pale reddish. There isn't much aroma, just a faint sweet floral.

The taste is also slightly sweet and floral, with very little hops flavor. Overall, it is a nice balance of sweetness with just a bit of beer/ale hops and malts underneath.

The aftertaste is very pleasant. Again the floral revisits.

I would happily buy this again. I think it would be very refreshing on a hot day by the pool (instead of a rainy night inside).

Pours an odd pinkish orange with a white frothy head that dissipates quickly. I've never had a beer that looked quite like this.

Smells like sweet rose wine. Not good.

Tastes much lighter then it smells. Slightly bitter sweet on the front end. It's hard to make out distinct flavors because it is very light, not a whole lot of body. What I do taste isn't bad, slightly floral and hints of malt however not in a traditional sense.

Moderately strong carbonation and an overall light feel. A little bit of floral bitterness, similar to eating any number of edible flowers.

Really interesting overall. Taste was pretty good and light in comparison to the smell. Defiantly one of the more unique beers I've had recently.
