Can from Binnys downtown. Clear copper color with a white head. Smells like a sweet, perfumey IPA. Yes I can see where this has some Belgian notes to it. Really a pretty tasty ale overall.

tmoreau (3915) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2013
On tap at Brixies in Brookfield, IL., and shaker served with a clear, golden color, off white, creamy head foam that diminished to a thin but persistent ring, and showed some light streaks & spots of lacing. The nose presented light yeast & spiciness, honey sweetness & malt, and some orangy citrus. The flavor again was sweet, then a combination of tart fruitiness, and moderate, earthy & rind-like bitterness. Medium bodied. A decent Wit/Pale.

LilBeerDoctor (3821) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013
On tap at Nano Brew Cleveland. Pours a clear orange brown with a thick white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, grainy malt, sweaty/stinky hops. Flavor of bready malt, grain, melon rind, sweet fruit, and bitter grassy hops in the finish. Tasty Belgian hoppy IPA. The hops could be slightly more prominent but thats my only complaint 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

UPDATED: APR 24, 2015 12/17/2013: Revolution A Little Crazy... Well, this beer tastes exactly like the style it?s labeled to be, a Belgian Pale Ale. At first sip, the Belgian yeast spice, caramel/fruitcake malt, and fleshy fruits come through and then the citrusy, melon, and FLORAL hops layer in on top. There is a suggestion of tropical fruits as well and the biterness level is moderate which is right on for the style. This beer is on point and quite easy to quaff, but nothing special and sadly, easily forgettable. 22 fl. oz. bottle shared by dirhauge. Score = 3.2. Thanks Paul! UPDATE 4/23/2015... Better out of the can. Score = 3.4.

maekchu (3613) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 15, 2015
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Overripe citrusy nose, cat piss, and yeast. Bright orange/amber color. Heavy zesty citrus nose, little shouts of bittering and pepper in mid palate, and rather deep bitter tracks in final. Medium nody, with some hop/yeast bite. Tasty, but with distinct flavors that dont quite meld.

Draft at Belgian Fest. Glad I had a chance to finally try this one. Nose is huge hops, really fresh and citrusy, tropical fruit from the Citra. Light Belgian yeast, tart note. Some noted pepper notes and grain. On tasting, medium-high bitterness, clean and deep. Nice malt balance and fruity hops. Tropical qualities are really nice. Great stuff.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Not sure what the deal is on this one... Had this via growler when it was originally released.. Aroma was bright with tropical fruit forwardness, somewhat dank and extremely bright... Flavor on the other hand didnt contribute as much. Semi-sweet crystal malt it seems with a semi-fresh citrus hop sensation that really didnt live up to its nose. Just shy of medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Pretty drinkable overall with a nose that quite I overcame the flavor. Def needs to be consumed fresh.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a crystal clear, darker gold colored body with a thin, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of fruity hops and yeast. Crisp citruses, some florals, light grass, tropical fruits, a few yeasty esters, and some dry herbal notes. Pale malt backing with some doughy yeast and a touch of spice. Flavor is similar. Tropical fruits, citrus, and a light Belgian yeast note up front. Dry grass, florals, and a pale malt backing come in during the middle with some doughy yeast and herbal hops showing up at the end. Finishes dry and clean with a light bitterness. Nice dry citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt, light Belgian yeast balance in a medium length aftertaste. Light body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice pale ale. Crisp and fruity hops with nice dryness balanced well with a light pale malt backing and light Belgian yeast influence. Very enjoyable beer.
