COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was developed through extensive experimentation by our brewers with different combinations of fruits and spices. The base beer is Basis which was inspired by the traditional brewing methods of Belgium lambic brewing. Revive is a tart, tropical, and refreshing blond sour ale. Aromas of pineapple and herbal chamomile are followed by tart and tropical flavors after aging in wine barrels for 3-4 months.

500 ml bottle purchased at ...... spruce Creek Provisions. Pours a crystal clear gold, served slightly chilled. Aroma of pineapple, Brett and a large amount of coconut. Yes coconut flakes. Taste is pineapple, coconut, and I suppose Chamomile. The mouthfeel is greasy. Oily. Slick. Overall this brew is just down right odd.

If I sampled this blind, I would NEVER say fruit lambic. After 30 guesses, I would never say lambic. This is not a lambic.

Stubby 500ML? from AFH! Thanks dude. Lambic fruit FTW. split 2 ways, cellar temp. a slightly hazy dark orange beer. no head. smells like tequila pina colada. Spritzy carb but fades quickly to a slick oily nothing. leaves a toasted coconut and oily crisco mouthfeel. up front, I guess pineapple;? but honestly more coconut. vanilla, ginger root.

Bottle from wine tree east. Pours a clear gold with a finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Big lychee nose with kiwi and passion fruit dominating. Slight yogurt flavor on the palate with tons of fruit, cinnamon, & chamomile. Good tartness but also with some creaminess that balances it out. Quite good.

Bottled September 2016, drunk 4/1/17.
Brassy-golden body shows good clarity and a beige-flecked, off-white head atop with moderate retention.
Fruity, playful Brett in the nose is quickly consumed by a much more strong lactic character, as light oak/wood notes and peachy-nectarine-like fruit juice notes quickly up the intensity. On the very end, the chamomile is noted and while it’s not overdone, it stands apart from the rest of the beer and, I don’t think, adds anything whatsoever. Some light guava and pineapple reprise on the finish, with a pretty deep funky, barnyard character and no alcohol or flaw.
In the mouth it’s dry, well-carbonated and engaging with a softly-malty texture and light traces of honey-like sweetness. Flavors wax and wane between tropical, bright, juicy Brett and stronger, more austere lactic acidity and oak. Chamomile, all the while, is lightly noted on the finish of every sip and really seems completely out-of-place to me. Stone fruit-like juicy and tart acids are well-integrated in to the beer. No alcohol or flaw. Very competent, though still seems like most other American sours; not sure the lambic moniker here.

Milk and Hops, NYC tap: pours golden with no head. Aroma is light tea, very much fruitiness, all sorts of tue funk. Taste is fairly sour. Very fruity. Sort of buttery aftertaste. Weird and good.

deyholla (11604) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has a strong chamomile note with a strong tart pineapple note and a light wine barrel backing. Flavor starts with a good amount of chamomile that is joined by tart pine apple and a white barrel note in the finish.

Mix of lactic sour and wet wool funky with a pineapple juice finish. Taste is a mix of lactic and earthy sour, maybe 70/30 lactic to funk, with a dry tannic finish and a nice dry pineapple taste. Flavorful and complex. Different sour with a bit of a light palate at times but it is growing on me. Sour maybe 4 of 10. Stone fruit and pineapple fruit goes well with sours it seems. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bright yellowish pour from draft at roots. No head. Candy sweet and apricot aroma. Taste is vanilla oak and very fruity. Not bad
