Availability: Year-round

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.

Bottle from trade. Amber pour with thick white head. Smell is sweet, nutty. Taste is unique - that earthiness from the chestnuts, some roasted malt flavor, cotton candy sweetness, banana. Probably wouldnt' do this one again. Chestnuts + beer not my thing but can see how others might like it.

A- murky brown with red and orange hues. A light, white head that doesn't stick around long.

S- huge malt and chestnut aroma. Big time nutty aroma lets me know exactly what is in store. Tree bark and other earthy notes make their way.

T- a fun and interesting blend of Euro malts and hops with the chestnut addition. Willamette hops really pave a nice balance with the intense nut character. Different, yet delicious.

M- A bit on the light side for the style, but honestly, it makes it doesn't abide by any particular style. Smoothness helps the drinkability. Would make for a nice beer to have a few rounds of at the local pub.

O- my first from this brewery, and i have to say that I am impressed. Not normally a style that I seek out, but most definitely enjoyed and would have again. Probably the strongest nut character I have had, but they found a way to really make it work.
