Revolver Brewing is located in Granbury, a six-square-mile town located about half an hour south of Dallas. Out of the population of 8,000, just three make up the team behind Revolver: father and son Ron and Rhett Keisler, and Grant Wood. But there's a wealth of experience in these small numbers -- Wood brewed for Texas breweries Pearl and Lone Star before landing a position as a head brewer for the Boston Beer Company, makers of Sam Adams. Ever tried Sam Adams Black Lager? His recipe. Wood also helped design Utopias when he was at the brewery from 2000-2004.
Wood and the Keislers launched Revolver in August, and their biggest hit so far has been Blood and Honey, an unfiltered American wheat finished with blood orange zest and honey from a local farm.
In a glass, Blood and Honey looks more like the latter -- lemon-pulp gold, and fogged over with unfiltered wheat. A finger of thin white film caps the hazy liquid.
The rest is a showcase in how an experienced hand crafts a beer -- subtle flavor additions; well-balanced and well-blended flavors. In the nose, touches of citrus peel blend with honey to give the brew a smooth, creamsicly aroma. The flavor has the same aspect, though more pronounced wheat here adds notes of banana and apple before a lingering finish of earthy honey. This, along with a pillowy medium body and mild carbonation, make Blood and Honey eminently drinkable.

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.
