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.
