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)

yngwie (16395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle. A lightly hazy one, dark golden in color and with a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite grainy, with some caramel and a fruity touch. Something nutty too, in a dusty, cellary way. Medium body, nice carbonation. Beef stock, caramel, some raisins and cellar and a decent fruityness in the flavor, lasting for a good while. Not much bitterness going on. A weird one, but with some interesting notes. 141219

Idiosynkrasie (6077) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2014
500ml bottle. Minimally cloudy amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Yeasty and hoppy aroma has a citrusy lime and lemon touch, nuttily background. Taste is moderately sweet malty, slightly nuttily and bready, cautious fruity hoppy overtones with a touch of orange and mandarine, some banana close to the finish; slightly dry and yeasty finish, moderately lively carbonation.

olio (8885) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2014
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear copper color with a small head. The aroma is very odd; sour fruits, yeast and bread. Flavor is even worse, some rotten granola, hay and malts.

lusikka (7649) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours an amber copper colour with a small head. Aroma of toasted malts, bread, tart red berries and salt. Flavour of toasted malts, plastic, red berries, sourness, earth and grains. Strong yeastiness. Light bodied. Feels ruined. If there’s a possibility, I will re-rate this. What a shame.

b3shine (7880) - Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Draft to snifter at the Midtown Biergarten. Looks solid; a semi-transparent brownish apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells malty and yeasty with a bit of clove woven in. Tastes like it smells, but more balanced. The hops come through more on the tongue. Pleasant on the palate. Solid beer, and tastes better than it smells.

bartlebier (3255) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2014
50cl bierpost bb12/2014. Soggy biscuit beer, fresh foam. Beguilingly delicate "amber" Dunkelweizen nose: older banana, wheat porridge, honeypops, indeed maroni. Taste is a mellow continuation of that with a lovingly dosed hop spice. Very drinkable composition, a full bulky bottle is not a challenge as with some Dunkelweizens.
