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)

Smells like fruit, can’t place which one though. Very distinct cloudy brown. Unique appearance. Looks thick.. No head. Strong walnut (?) and somewhat coconut flavor. Very yeasty.

Appearance is clear deep golden to amber with a thick white foam cap. Aroma is toasty and nutty, with a spicy clove yeast note. Taste is light toasted malt but definitely leans toward the spicy phenols. Nutty flavor is there, but restrained. Mouthfeel is fairly light, with a moderate carbonation. Finishes with a light nutty malt character on the tongue.

Bleh. Alcohol taste dominates. Other than that it isn’t a good brew either. Kind of nutty but more sweet/tart. Just "bleh" literally all around. No clear flavors.

hopscotch (9162) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle... Clear dirty-orange ale with amber highlights and a small, brief, creamy, white head. The yeast-driven nose is spicy and lightly phenolic accompanied by a suggestion of chestnuts. Light to medium-bodied with nearly-expired carbonation. Tangy, nutty flavor, followed by a minerally, tangy finale. Bottle courtesy of my wife, Tinkerbell. Thanks for hauling this brew back home from St. Louis!

Pours a cloudy copper-orange color with a long-lasting off-white head. Bread, wheat, ripe banana, and caramel aromas. Malt dominant flavor with some chestnut notes and low hop character. Medium body with high carbonation. The mouthfeel is grainy. The finish is somewhat sweet and malty.

jfb (3818) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
(draught) pours a hazy amber colour with a frothy light-beige head. aroma of heavy peanuts and wheat, with a hint of yeast, some mushrooms, grass and hazelnuts. flavour is more wheat, peanuts and grass, slightly sweet, with a hint of vanilla, some caramel and a light tartness in the slightly alcoholic finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation.

adasko (332) - Poznan, POLAND - JUL 28, 2014
I didn’t like the aroma of it. It’s like tanned artificial bananas. The head is rather poor. Beer is clear, dark golden color. In taste there’s a bit of immature banana, quite sweet. It’s too much carbonated. In the end it’s even a bit sour.

ARH (406) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2014
16.9 oz bottle poured into a stemmed Belgian tulip glass. The aroma is caramel, butter, sweet bread dough, and nuts. It pours a mostly clear, dark caramel orange color topped by a white, foamy head which reduces to a thick ring with a near full surface coating and leaves a light lace. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter. The creamy texture has a soft foam carbonation and a medium malty body. It finishes with notes similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some tropical fruit sweetness. The aftertaste is rather full bread and caramel, with some hints of nuts.

MrBunn (2458) - 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.

jkwood04 (3950) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 6, 2014
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.
