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.

This is a very pale straw-colored beer with a small head, that fades pretty quickly. The nose is excellent, with a sweet light maltiness, lots of wheat, and tart citrus peel notes, the latter very wit-like. The taste is interesting and unique. The malt is much more prominent than I expected--it's even a little heady. Citrus isn't as prominent as in the nose, but it's still detectable. There is some subtle, not really identifiable spiciness, perhaps from the yeast used. Very good beer!

Bottle shared with stillmatic2232.

Pours out a half opaque, half clear dark orange, with barely any head, only a small film, and no lacing. There's a good amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle, once it lands in the glass, the beer becomes basically opaque orange. Weird, but interesting.

Smells like oranges, pepper, cinnamon, and honey. The spicing is quite strong in the aroma.

The taste is pretty similar. Very strong spicing that works well against the sweetness of the blood oranges and honey. Some wheat bitterness lingers for a short period.

Light to medium bodied, very crisp mouthfeel, and very drinkable.

This was a little bit oddball, but still very tasty and one of the more unique wheat beers I've had.

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.
