Notes / Commercial Description:
LAAADIES AND GENTLEMEN! Step right up and take a pull of this desirable imibable wonder! now, I'm not a hawkin' a ballyhoo for any old flukum. NO! This prestidigitational flavor rambunction is brewed in inspired conjunction with Niche restaurant. Wegotcher orange, wegotcher citrus hops, wegotcher spices, wegotcher all things nices. This ale is the best on either side of the Mississippi or my name's not Elijah (which it is) and this is not my revival (which it is).

22 oz. bottle, with Batch #293 296 printed on the label. My second wheat wine style ale from Pipeworks, this one aged with oranges and spices.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a nice bright burnt sienna orange, not nearly as dark as the Pipeworks Easter Bunny Vs Unicorn was. Just over a finger of frothy khaki head that goes down quick. Some scattered lacing. Not amazing looking, but it looks good.

S - The smell is good, but not great. Muted herbal spicing takes center stage, some faint orange peel, mild alcohol fumes, but mostly lots of indistinct spice rack notes dominate - oregano, clove, thyme. A bit of trademark Pipeworks creaminess.

T - The taste follows the nose - citric orange, hop bitterness, mild alcohol, indistinct herbal spice rack notes, bready wheat, but nothing that would overly identify this beer as a "wheatwine".

M - Feel is smooth and creamy. Medium-full bodied. Slightly thick, but with good carbonation.

Overall, a nice beer from Pipeworks. Not a style I am too familiar with, but I'd say Pipeworks put a nice twist to it. The alcohol content is slightly noticeable, but very drinkable at 10.00% abv. Very glad to have gotten to try it, but it's probably not a beer I would have again.

Pipeworks Elijah's Revival ---4/5.

Appearance: pours a deep earthy orange color, almost like that of orangish brown autumn leaves. a finger plus of an off white head with strong retention and leaving by a strong streaky lacing. opaque but with a weak brightness around the edges. constant bubbling carbonation and some floating yeast and sediment.

Smell: wheat, caramel and nutty malts. orange, mostly flesh but some peel as well. strong spices, predominately peppercorns, but some herbal spices as well. boozy.

Taste: opens up with a mix of wheat malt and orange flesh. syrupy sweetness with notes of caramels and toffee. some nutty malt sneaks through. after an initial sweetness it becomes bitter and almost astringent with spices, hops, alcohol and possibly orange peel. the spices take the lead on the back end with definite peppercorns along with some herbs, most likely thyme. ends with a hot and strong booziness.

Mouthfeel: syrupy, almost astringent with spices and booze. lingering spices, warming alcohol.

Overall: fresh this beer is spicy and astringent and boozy to the point of excess. I had a early batch after cooling down for a while and enjoyed that one more. Overall though there are some good flavors that are just a bit too overdone and slightly unbalanced.
