COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of this classic and refreshing Belgian style ale is brewed with organic pilsner and wheat malts from Canada. Freshly ground coriander and Curacao orange peel, along with a special Wit yeast strain, contribute wonderful orange and citrus aromas and a crisp, yet silky, mouthfeel.

Served in a clear plastic cup at the Chicago French Market. Beautiful golden color and good effervescence. Refreshing and easy drinking like a macrobrew but with more of a backbone. I couldn’t pick out any flavor aside from "beer" but it was definitely hearty and satisfying. Couldn’t really taste any spices at all.

One of the best $3.00 pints that I have tried in a long time this beer would be a steal at full price. A wonderful sessionable wit is rich with flavor but does not wear down the palate. I should have expected as much from the guys at Revolution.

Aroma / Appearance - A creamy orange base is silk smooth below the starched white head. Citrus, creamsicle, and vanilla float from the glass like a light summer breeze. Fresh fruit slices and white bread are the smells of a continental breakfast buffet. At times yeast pops up and adds its own complexities.

Flavor / Palate - Vanilla soaked oranges refresh the thirsty palate sip after sip. Spicy yeast adds character to a fluid mouthfeel which is solid all the way to the back of the throat. Eventually it starts to fade but not before you reach for the next sip. This is a fine example of making a style your own without going too far from the spirit.

12oz can 12/6/13 (Trader Joe’s-Naperville)-42° in Tumbler-Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and hops. Taste of the same with more hops. This light bodied brew is well balanced and one of the better wits.

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Tap at Revolution. Bright slightly hazed gold with a huge white head, that left sheets of lacing down the pint. Aroma is citrus, wheaty yeast with a faint coriander seed. The taste follows with citrus/ orange peel, a light herbal/grassy bitterness, light coriander seeds and a nice malted wheat base. The coriander seed is also subtle and subdued. The finish is clean and has a refreshing character. What I like most is the brewer used the spices lightly, nothing over powering. It was a nice brew that went down real easy while I chatted with friends. Classic example of the style.

Taste is gummy, minty, & full of wheat & bready yeast. Light clove & coriander with some notes of light lemon & orange zest. A hint of cotton in the aftertaste.
