REVOLVER Saison - The Full Story

GIRL Revolver

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

phenol production.


You can watch us brew it here :-

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

Craft Beer, Rob of Hopzine and Craig of Kent Beer Reviews.  You can watch us below :-
