aroma is floral sage, sweet grass, spicy lemon, copper body with no head, flavor is extremely spiced, coriander, body is much thicker and heartier than expected, tastes much like a christmas ale or pumpkin beer, very spice dominate, but there is some nice complexity to the spices, a good balance o often over represented flavors in this sort of style, a good cool weather fall beer in my opinion, its going well with the time and place as I’m sipping it now on a cold october evening, foggy day in Berkeley

Bottle. Light bread and grain for the malt, hearbs and soap for the hops and yeast, with a faint hint of honey. Head is small, fizzy, off-white withno lacing and is fully lacing. Color is hazy medium amber/orange. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes slightly acidic. Palate is light to medium, watery, with a fizzy carbonation. Nothing standesout much in the this Honey beer, but it very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Pizza Port bottle shop: Created a thick fluffy pillow of head while the liquid was a honey gold color with chunks of yeast floating around. Aroma is strong in the basil scent and smells fresh and organic as if it were freshly bought basil leaves. The flavor is just the same with intense basil flavor as if I was eating a basil based spaghetti sauce. There also is some other micro green or herbs that dominate the flavor such as mint and rosemary with almost no sign of the honey, hop, or malt.

Decent beer, nothing special. Pours a nice cloudy orange. Basil and honey in the smell. Taste starts with a bit of honey, ends with a bit of basil, but isn't super interesting. Had in the bottle at Beer 39.

Sweet. Tastes somewhat like basil as well, with sweet honey at the beginning. Not something I would drink regularly, but good to have on occasion.
