3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I was not sure about this one. Has the aroma of basil and wheat. The taste is much the same somehow the basil works. I judge the beer i like by if I would want it again, and I would get this one again I would not have it all the time but every now and again why not especially with spaghetti.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma is strong herb. Definitely get the lemongrass and basil in the aroma. Very herbal. Not a good aroma for a beer. Makes me not want to drink it. Smells like medicine. Taste is a bit better, but not a whole lot. Malt balances it out a bit, but not much. Very strange brew, and not in a good way. Seems like you blended up some of your Thai meal and stuck it in your beer. The flavors don't go well together and shouldn't be combined. Keep the beer and food separate.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber poured a clear orange with a lasting amber head. Aromas of basil, lemon and straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of basil, lemon, light straw and light licorice with a crisp dry lingering basil finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber pours a slightly hazy yellow color color with a fizzy white head that faded quickly and leaves little to no lacing. To keep this short it smells ans tastes like b the original Blue moon with basil and lemongrass added for a slight spicyness but a slighty lower rating on the appearance. Pretty good for a macro beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a nice clear amber with a thick pale buff head. Aroma has a nice lemongrass overtone - but not much else. Flavor had an almost toothpaste-like tone, not off-putting but still not exactly beer-ish, malty and lemongrass notes. Texture has average thickness and fizz. OK, a good try at pretending to be microbrew, but not spectacular.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. The aroma reminds me of a lemonhead, lemon, herbal, basil. The aroma is very refreshing. This may hint at Pinesol. The flavor is citrus, bready, herbal. I found this to be over spiced but it was not unpleasant. Interesting.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour on tap at Black Bottle, hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of big coriander, cilantro, more herbal and floral notes, slight hints of vanilla, honey and some wheat notes, hints of grain. Taste is very herbal and floral, like drinking a soap bar, slight biscuit, bread, spice and some honey, finishing sweet, slightly dry.

Sampled in a bomber. An interesting brew. Worth a try but not great. I like the experimentation but it could use a little more.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle. Orange color, white head. Heavy nose of basil. Smells of Thai food, for sure. Hints of lemongrass as well. Very perfumey. Sweet taste. Flavors of Thai soup, all this beer is missing are the rice noodles, shrimp, and sirachia heat. Finishes with notes of sweet basil herbal flavor. Amazing taste. I would buy another bottle to share, only because no one would believe me what it tastes like! Other than that... Never again. Not an everyday drinker. Iíd sooner go to TinDrum and order the soup.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma is almost anise and candy. Sweet licorish and rock candy. Another flavor that I donít know. Medium body with good carbonation. A very different beer. as the 22 oz goes on this beer falls off the edge for me. One of the few beers Iíve ever poured out
