So, drinking an organic beer is like sterilizing the needle before a lethal injection, or eating diet food at McDonalds. The two just don’t compute, but it’s fun to give it a try anyways. New Glarus Organic Revolution is a delicious beer, organic or not. A real winner! durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2008
You know what I love about New Glarus? They don’t seem to be too concerned about beer styles. This one’s not really sure if it’s a creamy golden ale or a pale, but whatever it is, I like it. A lot, actually. Golden orange pour with a thin layer of foamy head. Sweet nose with a bit of creaminess and some light fruit. Malt a little more present than hops. Tastes of honey, bread, hops. Bottle conditioning makes for a great mouthfeel. This is not a beer that grabs you hard, but I honestly can’t think of a better go-to session beer than this one. Perfectly balanced. Thanks to James for the bottle. Now if we could only get it in NC... badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Perfectly clear darker gold color with a soft white head that retains well and leaves good lacing. Aroma is fairly low on the hops, but there is still some floral hints; I also get a little hint of apple, honeycomb, and some nice pale malt to round it out. Taste gives me some honey bread and floral hops at the forefront, a little pale malt balanced by the hops in the finish. Carbonation is a touch higher than medium with a bit heavier than light body. Pretty good beer, IMO; this one might not knock your socks off, but it is a very well made beer perfect for sessioning. Another success.

12oz bottle. Thick orange-brown color with a nice soapy head. Sugary orange chocolate aroma. Sweet medium dark malts collide with the solid bitterness which has a nice citrus tanginess in the finsh. Very clean and fresh, capturing some quality malt notes that arent so far off from a Brown Ale. Smooth and creamy, full of flavor with exceptional balance. Well done. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy gold with a nice off-white head. Nose is floral & spicy hops, some candied orange peel, very light toffee malt. Flavor is amazing floral & earthy hops - a bit of mint, a bit of honey, a bit of lemon. Perfectly rounded out by a nice crisp maltiness. Perhaps a bit sweet, but I bought this bottle a few months ago. I think the low score here comes from this being so unlike other APAs due to the Hallertau. Its more Kellerbier than APA & I love it.

Pours yellow with a moderate, white, fluffy head. Aroma is light with some sweeter, fruity qualities. Moderate mouth feel. Flavor is sweeter, with some light fruity qualities. Hop bitterness hits the end and the finish is quite clean. Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Bottle pours a hazy yellow with a small head and some residual lace. The aroma is floral hops and some grass. The flavor is sweet, orange marmalade, grassy, and fresh bread. The palate is medium rich and lively. Overall, I think she’s under rated. yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2009
New Glarus Organic Revolution is a clear, solid gold with a thin white head that leaves great lacing. It smells lemony and clean, maybe a bit grassy. It’s just about medium bodied (a bit light) and very smooth with a pretty clean finish. It has a grassy, mellow flavor with nice bitterness and nice balance. It would make an excellent session ale. illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Bottle at Patio’s 40th bday. Pours amber with a slight haze and a white head. Aroma of pale malts and leafy hops. Nice earthy mouthfeel and carbonation, on the lighter side of medium bodied. Flavor of pale malts, and spicy european hops, but with a tamed bitterness level. Semi dry finish. Pretty solid pale here. thejoeshow (232) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a light amber/gold color with a small white head that laces very nicely. Aroma is very nice. Very muted but pleasant. There’s a bit of maltiness in the front that’s finished off by just a subtle touch of hop presence. Nice smooth flavor made up of citrus and lemon flavor with a slight hop bitterness at the end. There is no real lingering aftertaste, it gives you just enough flavor to satisfy and then it’s gone. This beer is wonderful and should be the bar for all organic beers.
