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.

Poured this 16.7 oz. Euro bottle into a Sierra Nevada tulip hops glass. No date (reviewed from notes). The body was hazy orange/amber. The head was off white. The fine, dense cap remained.

The smell was banana nut bread. Lemony. Nice.

The taste had a pleasant nutty bitterness. Citrus. The flavor mirrors the aroma nicely. Light creaminess. Not overpowering in any element. Finishes semi-dry with plenty of sweetness in the middle.

The body was medium with adequate carbonation.
