Not what I expected at all. I got this on tap at the brew pub and it came in a tulip glass. A golden color with no head and very minimal lacing. It smells and tastes sour with no maltiness. After reading some other reviews from a longtime ago that thought the lines may be infected, I think it's not that, it's just a bad beer.

The difficult journey of creating an ancient Belgian style in American has conquered those at Revolution. The Coup D'Etat was a Saison to all those who have never..."Saison'ed" before. The yeast smell was the first set-off of cheese, stinky feet, and stale bread. Once these profiles entered my palate I was unable to get to the rest of the beer. Although the beer was drinkable, it had a viscous character that made it troubling on a hot day. Not the description you want to give to a Saison.

I had this in the brewpub on tap. It was served in a tulip glass.

This beer poured a golden coler but the head quickly disappeared and left no lacing to be had.

The smell was of sour grapes and not at all what I expected. I could not get any malt smell because the sourness was overpowering.

Very tart sour taste, low carbonation and not balanced at all. I'm thinking this beer has an infection or the beer lines aren't clean because this is not what I expected in a Saison.

Pours a white head. Color is a hazed sunset golden orange/yellow.

Aroma: Lots of yeast and spice. Bready. Some pepper. Belgiany. Cloves.

Taste: Lots of spices. It is very bready and yeasty. It tastes Belgian, but not very saison-like. Tastes more like a golden ale.

Mouthfeel: Dry and spiced. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends with a lot of spice.

Overall, not a fan of this one. Too heavy of a body and not enough barnyard funk.
