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.

12oz can. Pale hazy yellow with a rather small white head. Rather light aroma. Pronounced lemon, some wheat, some yeast. Flavor is light and tart. Quite lemony, rather dry. Rather thin, not the best white, but refreshing.

Non Beer Trip Beer Trip Beer #24. 12 ounce can, 3/8/16. Slightly hazy amber, large foamy off-white head, good retention. Aroma of doughy wheat, yeast, apple, citrus and a cinnamon like spice. The taste is wheat, chamomile, spice, apples, citrus. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, mild lingering spice.

Mindwarp (167) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2016
*Notes* Pours a hazy light yellow like lemonade. Has the aroma of spices and maybe a bit of citrus. Taste follows the nose. Overall a refreshing beer that would be good out in the sun but I don’t know haw many of these I could drink.

JPDIPSO (5588) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2016
Hazy straw colors liquid. Tall white head and nice lace. Scents of wheat, dry pale malt, circus peanuts, and hint of coriander. I really like the malt scent, but the circus peanuts distract a touch. Lightly sweet with a bit of malt and an strong backdrop of perfumy citrus and pumpkin pie spice. 11/12

First Revolution had in Chicago sushi restaurant Kai Zan with an Omakase course. The dry bitterness goes wells with Japanese skewers

ClarkVV (5704) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Draught at Coda, 3/3/16.
Lightly to moderately hazy, burnished gold with a small but fairly well-retained white head atop.
Lots of honey from the malt in the nose, with white pepper, hints of bubble gum and low amounts of clove and citrus. While it’s identifiable as a Belgian wit, it has a good maltiness, both sweetness and graininess, not found in many examples. No alcohol or flaw with light coriander on the end.
Lovely malt sweetness with soft, dry, creamy wheat flavors and textures. Coriander and black pepper-like spiciness dry out the finish but not excessively so. Lightly fruity and exceedingly low on the clove and heavy breadiness that often ruins this style. As well, it’s very drinkable but not thin and overly watery.

thornecb (5456) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Pours clear gold into a tumbler. No head. Sweet hay and caramel aromas. Dry with sweet yeast and corriander turning to a dry wheat finish.

A very nice wit from a can. Nice banana flavor and spice. Pale straw color, with a bright white head on the pour. Revolution is fast becoming one of my favorite breweries.
