DrSilverworm (8162) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2014
5oz on tap at the brewpub. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head kind of cream colored head. Some loose bits of lace. Good big beglian kind of saison yeast in the aroma, a lot of fruitiness to it, light herbal and spice flavors. Fruity, like peach, light banana. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. More slick finish. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter, light spiciness. Solid hoppy flavorful biere de garde. Not as biere de garde-y as other biere de gardes, and a nice amount of fruitiness and hop carries it.

deyholla (7712) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear reddish amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a lot a good amount of fruit and spice with a bit of a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has more of an earthy grain/bread start that’s joined by light fruit and spice in the finish.

BVery (7604) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Tap at Revolution. Orange golden pour with a smaller head. Saison yeast on the nose. Clean palate. Taste is bread, yeast, earth, and grass. Good stuff.

drowland (6671) - Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2012
8/11/12. GTMW. Amber pour with a nice khaki head. Spicy, estery yeast aroma with bits of spice, mint, and fruit on top of some caramel. Lightly spicy, yeasty, estery flavor with touches of mint and rubber tire on top of the caramel and malty aspects. Not bad.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Draft on tap at the Kedzie Tap Room (Chicago, IL). Pours a richer deep copper pour, almost brownish with some decent haziness, reddish orange glow on the edges and bottom, with some deeper brownish hues in the middle. Small frothy whitish head dies a ring, laces small. Aromas are a touch tart, berry and lemons mix with some bready malts, dry yeasty elements, straw and bready dryness. A bit cereal, some more tartness, a touch biscuity and sweeter as it warms. An odd bag with a gentle floral hopping, some mellow fruit presence. Initial is tart up front and dry, touches of lemon, berry, a touch herbal as lemon elements, dry distinct yeast create a firm impression. Some mellow sticky sweetness, biscuits and bread, some dough, and mellow touches of apples. Further in and into the back, the distinct yeast and dryness cut in and start to take the reigns. Dry, earthy, and floral elements stick into the finish and backend. Touches of biscuits, carmelization, and a toastiness try to peek through at times in the middle, with lingering dry and tart jabs, yeast elements. Some apple, lemons, and gentle citrus with that earthy dryness, touches of estery fruit in the middle. Quite an interesting beer that grabs me at times and loses me a bit in the middle as the focus shifts or perhaps loses sight a bit. A solid offering that gives something much different than we’ve seen on tap from Revolution lately. Some effervescent carbonation really adds to an already enjoyable experience on the palate. Not my favorite, but certainly a solid beer in a style that seems harder for beer drinkers to grasp, but that I’m catching on to.

Location: Draft at the Milwaukee Ave Brewpub, 7/16/14

Aroma: The nose is fruity and yeasty mostly, it has noticeable spice, aome some earthy notes
Appearance: It has a copper-amber color to it, with a somewhat frothy khaki colored head and lace
Flavor: The taste is light-medium sweet, some spice flavors, and a bit of bitterness as well
Palate: The body is medium, it has a softer carbonation, and it finishes lightly dry and a little slick
Overall Impression: This is a pretty interesting beer. There’s some nice stuff going on here, and the combination works solidly together. I have no major complaints about. I’d drink this one again.

drewbeerme (3895) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Draft at revo, pours hazed amber with white head. Aroma mixes spicy and earthy yeast character with sweet fruits of banana, plums, and apricot. Flavors are sweet apple, banana, earthy and sweet caramel and pepper spice finish. Justs a bit too sweet overly ripe fruit here, this could be sweet with some Brett in a barrel.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a pretty reddish amber with a frothy offwhite head that persists to the bottom of the glass. Good clarity. The nose is lightly spicy, faintly sweet. Faint floral honey and a minty phenol note. Pretty clean overall. On tasting, some light caramel notes, moderate sweetness, dry finish. More of that minty quality comes across, which is pretty nice. I keep going back to the beer and find it actually a really solid beer. Some dark fruit comes through, the alcohol is definitely held in check. This would be cool with with some fruit in a wine barrel. Nice.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, orange-amber colored body with a finger-width, creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is bready pale malts with a light caramel sweetness along with a Belgian yeast phenol giving off some banana, a light clove, and a touch of peppery citrus. Some toastiness to the malts as well as a light tartness. Flavor is similar. A bigger, pale bready maltiness with some caramel up front as well as a Belgian yeastiness. Some light pepper in the middle with a touch of citrus and a light banana and clove before this finishes somewhat malty sweet with a touch of toast and a light citrus tartness. Light, earthy bitterness before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-full body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent beer. Big bready malts with some caramel sweetness and a good amount of Belgian yeast giving off some banana and a light clove note. A touch of citrus tartness at the end to keep things interesting. Not my favorite from Revolution, but not bad.
