After all the hype around this beer, I was disappointed. Fairly flavorless, though I felt a little better when I was told it was a wheat and not a blonde. Can barely taste the orange and barely taste the honey. I'll pass on this one next time. (P.S. If you're a beer nerd, try the Ironhead IPA. Uniquely better IMO)

12 oz bottle. Light hazy golden color, finger white head fades slowly, coating lace. Wheat bread aroma with some blood orange citrus notes. Light bodied wheat ale, blood orange citrusy bitterness is there with a little honey sweetness, just as advertised. Thin semi slick feel. Ok brew.

I have had a wide variety of beer in my life - not a ton, but enough that I can distinguish quality from competent from trash. Revolver Blood and Honey is one of the FINEST beers I have ever consumed. Quality taste, clean, crisp, just what an ale should be. No bitter or skunky undertones. Fantastic from first sip to last swallow. This is what beer is all about.

This has become a neo-classic to me. Always good, though 6'ers are often overpriced.

Basically okay in a nutshell. This is subjective, of course. This was a fairly plain and slightly over-bitter beer. The first sip had a bite and the aftertaste was a little sour. The beer was lighter than I enjoy, but not altogether bad. I probably wouldn't oppose this if a friend got a six-pack, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it. Being a subjective review, I admit that several of my friends like this one, so I seem to be in the minority among friends. It's just not my personal favorite.
