COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Revolution Series #1: We are affectionately referring to the first beer in our Revolution series of modern, American craft beer, as our unusual little bird. It’s a little on the flighty side @ 6.5% ABV, and it’s a little on the wacky side because we’ll brew it with finely milled chestnuts (genus castanea …for you nut freaks), Willamette hops, and we’ll ferment it with a Bavarian Weissbier yeast strain. All of these nuances contribute to its ‘nutty’ personality. ABV- 6.5%, IBU’s- 25, OG – 14.5 Plato (UCBC Goblet)

MrBunn (2453) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours an orangish copper with a very thin head and aromas of apple juice, toffee, and a little bit of cocoa. Flavor is initially fairly fruity depending on how it hits the palate it either stays that way or blossoms into a bit of a cocoa finish that is interesting. It’s a nice beer, but not really anything too unique.

500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber/brown with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of light wheat and caramel malts, light toffee, nuts, hints of hops, notes of spices, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the worst beer, but not my favorite style.

4 oz draft pour at Urban Chestnut Midtown during RBSG 2014. Hazy golden brown with off-white head. Aromas of chestnuts, sweet fruit. Tastes of chestnuts and spices. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Chestnuts come through nicely.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft flight on tap at the brewpub (St. Louis, MO). Pours an amber orange hue, gentle haziness with frothy tannish head atop. A decent layer, nice lacing with good stick around. Aromas are a bit carmelized and nutty, decent biscuit, some earth and gentle brown malt. Faint coffee. Initial is medium bodied, touches of carmelized malt, banana bread, apple, toast and gentle pretzel. Some earthiness, faint brown sugar, earthiness. Middle is carmelized, a bit toasty with some vanillin. Sweeter, a touch darker. Carmelized, gentle brown sugar and earthiness as we finish. A touch sweet and grainy, biscuity and carmelized. Ok. Not my thing, that fruit element gets a bit weird for me.

Frank (2761) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2014
This has nice head of fine bubbles and is amber in color. I figured this would be a brown ale or something but it’s more of a German wheat style with its nose of bananas and a touch of earthy hops. It has a nutty malt character and its slight sweetness is cut by vigour and creamy carbonation.Finishes with a firm earthy bitterness. I thought this was going to be goofy but it’s actually rather good.

deyholla (6505) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a near clear gold with an amber hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of light roast, earthy wheat with some light fruits backing. Flavor has a good amount of light wheat with some earthiness and a hint of grass.

EtTuCthulhu (1004) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 14, 2014
This beer pours a slightly hazy orange with a medium white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends wheat, banana, roasted malts, and a hint of clove, and the taste is a very complex blend of mild nutty and banana ester sweetness and a slight sourness due to the grainy wheat quality; the aftertaste maintains the blend, but the nuttiness is the dominant flavor left on the tongue through the finish. The average carbonation, medium-light body, and slick texture complement the other aspects of this beer.

hobsch (418) - Cologne, GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
From tap at Taphouse Munich. Pours orange brown with off white head. Aroma is malty, grainy, spicy, doughy with nuts. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, slightly sour, malty and a noticeable chestnut flavour. Light body, medium carbonation, balanced. Somehow an interesting brew.

motelpogo (6309) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 13, 2014
on tap at the taphouse in munich. lightly hazed dark amber with a thin fluffy white head; more of a woody than nutty aroma, perhaps not the freshest; light hints of rye and vanilla, confused, slightly gluggy finish. unconvincing but not unpleasant
