2.98/5 rDev -20.5%
At Celestial Cafe
Clear gold, way too clear for an unfiltered beer. Fingerswidth head held for a short time before skimming and skulking to a thin collar. All foam was completely gone when I finished which is disappointing for a saison.
Initially Revival had all the smells of a good saison - spicy yeast phenols, mild herbal hops, and a sweet malt character underneath. As it warmed it began to taste like buttered waffles.
Again Revival tastes like a fair saison at first with a fair balance of spicy phenols, sweet pale malt and an earthy, herbal hop in back. But as it warmed up I got more diacetyl. There wasn't a ton of butter but because it wasn't supposed to be there at all it really irked me.
Could have been good but it seemed sloppy.

3.88/5 rDev +3.5%
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.
