REVOLVER Saison - The Full Story
Revolver v7.2 - Saison US Cascade (US)
When Arfur Daley and Simon of the visited the Pilot Inn and
Brewery in March 2015 Simon suggested a collaboration brew.
As Revolver is the brewery "laboratory" we decided to play with it. Simon
suggested to give it the saison treatment. Saison is a french/belgian yeast
which produces a distinct flavour. In order to fully appreciate the effect of the
yeast we decided to stick with a favourite well known hop i.e. Cascade.
This is the same as the popular Revolver v7.0 and v7.1 but fermented with Belle
Saison Belgian farmhouse yeast. This yeast should produce a distinctive
saison style with an aroma that is fruity, spicy and peppery due to ester and

This Revolver Saison is extremely refreshing, fruity, zesty and sometimes sour depending on
your palate. The beer is a cloudy golden colour with the special saison aroma. The
cascade hops add a strong hop background but the taste is shaped by the yeast. With little
or no bitterness, you can quickly enjoy the saison experience as the palate makes the
necessary adjustment down the glass. Zingy, tangy and funky!
The brew was racked as fined and unfined in both cask and keg.
Tasters of the fined keg and unfined cask were taken to the CAMRA Great British Beer
Festival in Olympia, London in August 2015.
Real Ale Craft Beer filmed the beer tasting with Richard of The Pilot Brewery, Simon of Real
