Revolution Sun Crusher

Tonight’s beer is a Spring seasonal to celebrate the end of Winter. I really thought that we were done with the bad weather once we got out of February, but obviously I was completely wrong. This seems like the perfect beer to crack open right now.

ABV: 5.3%

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A crushable ale to celebrate the end of winter and rejoice the coming of warm weather! This Hoppy Wheat Ale is brewed with Apollo and Amarillo hops, with a dry-hop blend of Crystal, Amarillo, and Mosaic, resulting in a mellow bitterness and pronounced flowery and citrus aromas. Flaked Oats with a malt blend of 2-row, Red Wheat, and Carapils, create a light golden color and a smooth silky mouthfeel in this brew.”

Random: I first had Revolution beers when I was out in Ohio a few years back.

The beer poured with a large, three finger, fluffy, off-white head. It took a long time to go away, but didn’t leave much lacing on the glass. The body was clear and dark yellow with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was filled with flowery hops and wheat and some malt to balance it out. The taste was really bright and I could see why this is a Spring seasonal. I picked up notes of orange segments and floral perfume from the hops. The malt came through next and imparted some grain. The body was light with lots of carbonation. It had a quick finish with citrus. A can of this was $1.83, which broke down to $.15 per ounce. This was a really good beer and an interesting interpretation of a wheat beer that I would search out in the future.
