I love saisons in the first place. It has the right hint of spice and hops but really smooth in the finish. Also really good in a ginger Orange cocktail.

On-tap at revolution; Comes in a tulip glass

A - Golden with a slight brown hint to it. Bit thick and hazy looking. Looks to have medium body

S - Fragrant lemon, lemongrass, Belgian yeast. Really a great smelling Saison

T - Lemon peel, slight Belgian esters, and bubble gum are the first flavors we get. As the beer goes on the lemon increases, and there is a slight grassy flavor that comes through. Very crisp and refreshing Saison. You definitely can't tell this is 8.1% as there is no alcohol available.

MF - Medium body to it. Lots of carbonation in it that goes great with the flavor profile. Very crisp and refreshing

O - Great Saison by revolution. This brings the fresh flavors of lemon while having a slight funk. Could imagine drinking this over and over again on a nice summer day

On tap at Fountainhead.

Appearance was cloudy yellow, small white head.

Smell was fruity and very wheaty, more like a wit beer.

Taste was very wheaty and citrusy.

Mouthfeel was perfectly smooth.

Overall an excellent beer. Though a bit high on my scale of abv, it was masked perfectly. Great saison style!

Served on tap at the brew pub in a tulip glass.

This beer is a cloudy, glowing apricot with a thin layer of white head.

The nose is very close to a hefe. I'm picking out chalky citrus, pine, spicy esters, candied fruits, and a tiny bit of alcohol.

The taste follows the nose. Chalky fruits with hits of pine, esters, and more citrus. This isn't striking me as a saison, but it is tasty. It's refreshing and finishes dry and a little bitter.

The mouthfeel is creamy and close to full with a moderate to low level of carbonation.

A tasty brew for sure, but I think it borders a weird hefe/saison vortex. Worth trying and really easy to put down.
