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 the Hilton rooftop in St. Louis. Waitress said it was an "amber", so a bit of a surprise there, but I'll try to review to the actual style. No head on the beer when it arrived, dark copper color without much in the way of bubbles. I was surprised off the bat by how sweet the beer was. Not overtly or cloyingly, but enough to seem out-of-place. Once my tongue adjusted to that, I found a medicinal, slightly metallic, flavor waiting for me which would last through the next 3/4 of the glass until I finally gave up on it. Felt a bit undercarbonated, and had an unpleasant aftertaste. It's possible this beer wasn't getting a fair presentation; I'd be pretty surprised if this bar does proper draft line maintenance; but I don't see myself rushing out to give this beer another try elsewhere.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear deep orange. Nice off-white head. Contiguous wisps on the surface. Medium collar.

Smell - Very phenolic. Clove, banana, some hops. Definitely nutty.

Taste - Same phenolic character. Oppressive here. Sharp flavor. Strong yeastiness. Nuttiness is less pronounced.

Mouthfeel - A little harsh on the sharp yeastiness. Medium body.

Overall - Not a pleasant beer after a few sips.

Appropriately, pours a light chestnut color, only a pretty thin white head.

Aroma is much like a saison or a tripel--very yeasty, some mild spice, maybe faint nuttiness, not a whole lot going on. Fairly dry.

Taste is sweeter, nuts are more apparent but not super rich. Lots of yeast and spice again, also an odd metallic/iron like taste.

Mouthfeel is solid, good carbonation and a pretty full body.

Decent beer, hoped for more, definitely wish there were more nutty flavors.

5.7/10

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.
