Draft at the Revolution brewpub. Pours a honey color. Very mild aroma. Flavor is sweet fruit and spicy, but something didn’t work for me. I love a good saison, but this one was missing something for me. Good mouthfeel. Overall this one was just ok. Based on the other ratings I hope to get another sample next time I’m in Chicago.

On tap at their brewpub. This was a nicely hopped-up saison, with herbals and peppery spice standing out. The pour was too close to the top of the glass, leaving nothing more than a thin layer of wispy white head. The body was fairly translucent and burnt orange in color in the darker lighting. A full, hazy cloud of an aroma here, with some decent notes. Bananas, peppery spice, lots of herb, some caramel, and nutty cereal grains. The mouthfeel was peppery and bitter. This bitterness made this saison unique for sure. Mixed fruity notes up front, and peppery citrus. More of a herbal and light floral finish. Really not too bad here. Good profile, buts things didn’t quite come together for me in all the right ways.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of yeast, grainy/rice malt, and spices. Flavor of yeast, bready malt, lots of spices (pepper) in the background, some tangy citrus. A good, spicy saison. 7/4/8/4/14 [3.7/5]

Enjoyed on tap at Revolution Brewery in Chicago, IL while eating dinner with some jabronies who I happen to be in a band with. Rated while watching Teen Wolf. Appearance a vibrant bright gold with thin white head that rims around the glass. Aroma of spices, coriander, wild yeast, very floral, stings the nostrils. Taste very floral and spicy, but smooth at the same time with decent carbonation. Wild yeast and spices are the prevalent ingredients, kind of sour in the finish. Really is pretty good.

BeerandBlues2 (10608) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Tap. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, fizzy white head, short retention and light lacing. Aroma is medium malt (straw, toast, meal), earthy hops, light fruity esters, and barnyard notes. Flavor is malty, bright fruits and hops, and earthy/barnyard. Light body, low warmth, medium carbonation and a dry finish.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, brighter orange colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is pretty fruity with some juicy citrus tangerines, pears, sweeter florals, soft spices, yeasty earth, a light banana, and some sweeter malts with a light caramel and grain. Flavor is similar. Lots of juicy fruits up front with a good amount of sweet tangerines, oranges, pears, melons, and floral fruits. Nice yeasty spice and earth to balance along with a light grass, some banana, and a touch of bubblegum. Some grainy, medium sweet malts add to a rounded balance. Finishes dry and fruity with a nice spicing and light-medium bitterness. Lengthy, spicy and citrusy aftertaste following a medium body and fairly lively carbonation that works well with the juicy fruits and spices. Overall, a nice saison. Dry and balanced with a pretty cool juicy fruitiness. Nice malt sweetness to round things out making this very enjoyable. Good beer.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2011
On tap at the pub. Pours a beautiful bright pale golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is nice and softly spicy, some easy sweet grainy and lightly floral notes. The hops are there and a touch spicy but mostly on the herbal side, creating an easy soft nose. Flavor is well rounded, moderately spiced and a touch hoppy, a slight citric note. Holds a light grainy straw character throughout before and earthy herbal finish. Medium body and an active carbonation. Nice saison, very refreshing.

The beer pours a cloudy orange with a nice white head, good retention and lacing. The aroma is light, a little more citrus than you would expect in a saison, with a little wheat, and a slight bitter finish. The server described as super sweet, it was sweet for a saison but not super sweet, nor do I think its a traditional saison. The taste is also pretty light starting off with some citrus, then finishes with a slight sour bitter finish. Decent feel, nice carbonation and a fine dry finish. Overall, pretty good, a sweeter take on a saison.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 Draft, a keg held back about 9 months at the pub, pours sweet toffee notes floral and herbal hop notes fl are very sweet and candy like with earthy grainy and spice notes. Way too sweet man rev cannot brew a decent saison. 2.9 4/13/11, a fresh draft pour rerate, seemed like a Matilda clone, big phenolic character, spicy hop and yeast notes, bit big and sweet like Matilda but tasty too. Much better fresh, aging this with Brett could do wonders.

Dogbrick (9181) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of mildly spiced hops and fruit. Light body with flavors of hops, bready malt, sweet fruit and yeast. The finish is sweet spices and fruit with a yeast aftertaste. Decent Saison overall.
