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.

On tap at Blue Dog in Lansdale, PA.

Poured a brick color with a think white head. The aroma of the chestnuts was noticeable but not cloying. The taste was very balanced, artisanal and delicious. The chestnuts actually became more noticeable towards the end of the beer. Very balanced and smooth. The "finely milled" chestnuts certainly contribute positively to this ale.

Overall this brew is delicious and unique... I've never quite had anything like it.

Serving type: on-tap
