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)

Bottle from Strykezone. Odd aroma can’t put my finger on it. Must be the chestnuts. Nice amber hue with a moderate head. Some what tart after taste but not in a bad way. Don’t pick up much of the nut flavor. Very drinkably smooth.

Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a good head and nice lacing. Aroma of malt and nuts with a hint of spice, mild but pleasant. Taste of nuts with a malty sweetness and a bit of spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth with a bit of an oily texture. Enjoyable beer without being in your face.

Had on draft at brewery. Pours a hazy orange copper color with a finger of head and decent lacing. Aroma is on the light side but has elements of toasted nuts, sweet caramel malt and brown sugar as well as some spices. Nuttiness comes through first in taste as well as the sweet caramel. Light spice flavors like nutmeg or cinnamon as well as a hint of citrus towards the end. Mouthfeel is semi slick with a medium body and carbonation. Nice nutty flavors that go well with the spices and bit of sweetness.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Nearly clear, amber with a large tan head. Scent is old wood, nuts, malt, banana peel. Flavour is slightly bitter/tangy/herbal/nutty...... Nut flavor is sharp to bitter leaning. Strong woodiness, almost tart, oily, solvent... Just didn’t work well for me.

Draft. Interesting beer. Hefe mixed with a sort of nut brown. Not my fav combos but a good beer.

SPDickerman (913) - Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Pours amber orange with a large beige head. Smells nutty and malty. Taste is lightly nutty, lightly malty, smooth, and generally pleasant. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Urban Chestnut Winged Nut finishes with a very subtle nut flavor.

DrSilverworm (5917) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2013
16.7oz bottle, shared by phaleslu. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Minimal off-white head, bits of lace. Not much in the nose. Light to medium body. Light carbonation. Lightly dry texture. Smooth, easy drinking nutty malt, interesting in such a pale colored ale [pale for a dunkelweizen... didn’t realize that was the style before uploading my notes now]. Nice bready malt, very lightly grassy hop. Nice light sweeter taste, light bitter. Interesting, tasty stuff.

Tap numerous times at brewery and various places Pours deep hazy orange with a 1 inch soapy fluffy head eggshell. Nose is huge banana nuts hefe yeast lite minerals and dis I say banana? Flavors of banana lite nutty notes lots of spice clove the nutty notes shine more than I remember which is a cool twist to this style. Long banana lite minerals and metallic notes. This is very solid I could drink tons of this! Round body witb fluffy carbonation. This is a winner!

A little too golden for a dunkel in my opinion. Nice wheat and nut aroma. Lemon notes on the palate. Missing some those malt notes.
