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.

3.39/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours amber with a thumb cream colored head. Never really drop bright, great lacing & good head retention

S: Nutty notes, plus sulphur & pear

T: Nutty, pretty darn dry with hints of sulphur up front, a bit of brown bread as well. Faint pear & fig notes as this warms, dryness & some leafy hops as this warms. Finishes fruitty, dry, with a hint of sulphur & nuttyness, even some sour notes

MF: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

Drinks okay, kind of middling as Brown ales go, you can taste the chestnuts to be sure. Was hoping for better on this one
