Lovely amalgamation of styles. Not really a brown ale or a weissen. The chestnuts add earthy, nutty complexities that partner well with the phenolic yeast. Wonderful from the tap at UCBC. Would have rated higher in the bottle i’m drinking of it now tasted as good.

on tap at the taphouse in munich. lightly hazed dark amber with a thin fluffy white head; more of a woody than nutty aroma, perhaps not the freshest; light hints of rye and vanilla, confused, slightly gluggy finish. unconvincing but not unpleasant

like ppl are saying it’s wacky, but the chestnuts make it serious. the bite of the chestnuts, the ephemeral undefined fruitiness. local favorite.

Bottle from trade with Strykzone. Amber with thick white head. Smell is sweet, nutty. Taste is unique - that earthiness from the chestnuts, some roasted malt flavor, cotton candy sweetness, banana. Very interesting.

Banana rama is a good band. Poured from bottle at flannerys. Earthy tropical aroma. Wheaty and fruity. Weird. Not bad but wouldn't have again

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a hazy orange with a tan head. Taste nutty, malty. Reminds me more of a brown ale. I thought this was so so. I could drink this again.
