Beautiful hoppy aroma yet still getting the Belgian wit yeast of the peppery/lemony smell. Appearance is slightly hazy with a yellow/golden color. Average/low head retention. Medium carbonation, heavier body than most pale ales. Hops linger but not overpowering. A nice balance between the complex yeast and the hops. A very enjoyable beer. Usually skeptical with a hop forward Belgian style ale. This was well made.

Bulk_Carrier (5053) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a mild burnt golden orange color with a thin fingers worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice even pace. Mild lacing sticks in rings. The aroma balances nicely between some white pepper, Belgian bready malts, and some sweet citrus. The flavor initially yields to the bready sweetness and then entices the citrus and white pepper for a nice balance. Some floral dry sweetness in underneath. Gently folds the sweet floral over the bready malts in the aftertaste and rolls into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Some stickiness, but not cloying. Overall, good Belgian pale ale that I would have again.

Can pour - Deep red amber; clear - very thick light tan head that might last through the apocalypse. Nose is hop forward - messy in some ways, but I think its the belgian yeast coming over the top of the citra hops...took me a bit to warm up to this, but once I did, the spiciness, which is notable, makes it complex and intriguing. Flavor plays back and forth between spicy, bready yeast and grassy/citrus hops, some fruit esters in here as well - sweet and bitter are both evident, but sweet wins out - mild bitterness on the finish. Palate seems appropriate for the style. Enjoyable beer - continue to enjoy most everything I try from Rev...

TheHOFF43 (2049) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Can at home. Pours a clear copper with lasting white head and good lacing. Aroma is bananas and Belgian. Somewhat hoppy taste but eaten up by Belgian yeast and bananas. Really disappointing as Belgian yeast dominates this beer. The hop profile isnt there.

Pours a dark amber with a thick head and lots of lacing. Aroma is of resin with some spice. Taste is hoppy but not bitter, follows the aroma. Overall a pretty good beer
