I am not the most seasoned reviewer, but I had this beer yesterday on tap at Monty's Corner in Fort Worth's Montgomery Plaza. They sold me on it by talking about how it was made locally in Granbury.

The beer had a cloudy look to it, and a distinct smell of honey. Not much in the way of head and little lacing. This could be due to the chilled glass they served it in, which was more of a schooner.

The taste was a little thin. Taste of honey and wheat, but the taste disappeared from your palate in about half a second. Very odd sensation. By the time you finish swallowing, there is absolutely no lingering taste.

Beer was served extremely cold in a chilled glass, so I probably should have let it warm a bit to get the full flavor, but was on a time crunch.

On second try, this was much better, maybe the first go round was stale.

Lots of honey and blood orange in the nose and the palate. Well balanced and drinkable, with a solid mouth feel for style. All in all, a great offering from Revolver.

On tap at the Common Table. The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of orange citrus notes, as well as some wheat. The flavor is more complex. I get some great wheat and honey notes, as well as some herbs and juicy citrus. As I drink the beer, the herbal notes get stronger and stronger and add more and more to the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

Received in a trade from IGer thereal_adam, who I'm pretty sure is also on Beer Advocate somewhere.

The beer has a great appearance, golden, straw-colored liquid, cloudy and unfiltered like a hefeweizen. The pour produced a two-and-a-half finger thick head that is creamy, frothy and abundant in sticky lace that pegs to the sides of the glass.

I have to work a little bit to ge some aroma off the nose, but I do get sweetness, wheat, citrus, and honey. It's pretty mellow but it's there.

Wow! This beer is really light and refreshing to drink, yet there's a lot on the flavor profile. In many ways, it reminds me of Marble's Wildflower Wheat, but with a few other flavor notes. I get sweet pale malts, honey, a slight citrus aftertaste and some grassiness and wheatiness. Bread lingers on my tongue after each sip.

It's a sweeter beer, but by no means a soda. Very well-balanced, thick and creamy on the mouth, yet still refreshing enough for trips to the park or barbecues.

I'm a fan and I bet at any barbecue this would be a huge hit.

Pours a nice bright golden yellow with a big white head. Lot's of dark bits and pieces. Smells terrific! Smells very sweet, fresh and citrusy. However, there's no sweetness in the taste. A very lively clean and refreshing beer. Really enjoyed this one.
