Notes/Commercial Description:
We affectionately refer 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 @ 5.4% ABV, and it’s a little on the wacky side because we brew it with finely milled chestnuts (genus castanea …for you nut freaks), Willamette hops, and we ferment it with a Bavarian Weissbier yeast strain. All of these nuances contribute to its ‘nutty’ personality.

One pint 0.7 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. A somewhat aggressive pour yielded a three-finger tan head that had decent retention and left bits of lacing along the glass. Due to the head, I was unable to get the entire bottle into the glass. The body is light brown with an orange hue and slightly cloudy.

The aroma is reminds me of a wheat based beer, like a witbier. Mostly spicy yeast notes up front with some hint of banana and a touch of lemon in the background.

The flavor is a very pleasant mix of the spicy yeast flavors and some other more fruity notes, especially the banana. The spicy notes are more evident in the flavor than I thought they would be, based on the aroma. The malt flavor is not pronounced, but adds a nice bready and nutty flavor to the mix.

Medium texture in the mouthfeel. Overall, a very solid brew. Glad it's available in bottles now.
