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. Its a little on the flighty side @ 6.5% ABV, and its a little on the wacky side because well brew it with finely milled chestnuts (genus castanea for you nut freaks), Willamette hops, and well ferment it with a Bavarian Weissbier yeast strain. All of these nuances contribute to its nutty personality. ABV- 6.5%, IBUs- 25, OG 14.5 Plato (UCBC Goblet)

2015 vintage - 5.4% abv

Bottle from Strykezone. Odd aroma cant 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. Dont pick up much of the nut flavor. Very drinkably smooth.

coachd (748) - Missouri, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Sweet malty aroma. Nice amber color with an off white head. Taste is also sweet with a nutty aftertaste. Slightly metallic, that takes it down a notch. Rich low carbonation palate. This is an interesting take on a brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

katrinaez (1767) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2016
On the old system. Nice beer. Not too hoppy, but heavier than a regular ale or lager. Didnt really taste any chestnut flavors out of the ordinary. Cant remember if it was tap or bottle

ALIBALI (1614) - Kiel, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2016
Getrunken vom Hahn im Strongbows Kiel 0,3l/4,50 Euro. Optisch sehr ansprechend. Der Antrunk erfrischend, dezent nussig & hoppy. Schlanker Krper. Der Nachtrunk dann schon trocken und dank der Willamette Hops schn wrzig. Lecker und dezent andersartig.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass in St.Louis, Missouri. The appearance is a light amber with a medium sized white head. The aroma is full of malt, bread , pepper and caramel toffee. The flavor is a a fairly sweet malt flavor with a toasted finish. Overall, an exceptional beer.

heman (890) - Tychy, POLAND - OCT 6, 2015
Aromat słodki, dominują banany, a w tle muśnięcie orzechw i/lub kasztanw. smaku pełne, ponownie banany i nuty karmelowe, kasztany pojawiają się wyraźniej niż w zapachu. Finisz to lekko zarysowana goryczka.
