4.05/5 rDev +7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
On-tap 11/13/2011 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a bright yellow/gold color, with a short dense off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains wheat, Belgian yeast, some spice and some light caramelized malts.
T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat, Belgian yeast, and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some spices come in along with some very mild sweetness. The hops presence is good for the style and creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.
M: Smooth and very crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer worth drinking for a long time.
Serving type: on-tap

Procured a growler from a co-worker who attended a gourmet food and beer pairing. Served in my Maudite tulip. Pours a dull, burnt orange with a hazy clarity and a loose, one inch off-white head that dissipates into an oily skim and a tight speckled band around the edges. Some spots of lacing, but poor adhesion. Nose express clove, coriander, candi sugar and a pleasant eathy aroma. Taste follows nose; however, there's a slightly medicinal bitterness that is revealed towards the back and gradually dissipates between quaffs. Mouthfeel is medium-light in consistency with a trace of oiliness and a pleasant, crisp carbonation. Overall, a very nice domestic saison that I can definitely see adding to my line-up of regulars. I'm pretty excited to see another local brewery establish itself in RI.

Appearance: Pours a light blonde, gold color with a substantial head into a standard pint glass. The head disappears quickly, lining the glass with delicate lacing.
Smell: Banana, clove with belgian yeast and a bit of a citrus note as well.
Taste: Much of what I get in the nose with hints of banana and spice with a belgian character.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a bit too much carbonation for the style in my opinion. Still goes down easily and drinks well.
Overall: This is a solid saison from Revival and one that I would try again for sure. Certainly not my favorite but a good interpretation of the style and worth drinking.
