3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Remainder of a growler, thanks to Jay. Totally murky faded yellow / peachy color. Thin white head, leaving dots of lace. Very light, but crisp carbonation. Clean dry finish. Very easy to drink, and refreshing, as a summer brew should be. Really nice basil spice aroma, adds to the tastiness of this brew. Light orange citrus peel aroma. Sort of a zesty sweet taste. Quaffable and delicious, all the way through. A great and interesting way to do a summer beer, especially if you enjoy basil like I do

Growler to snifter (thanks Jay). Looks solid; light-gold with thin white lacing. Smells pretty good too; saison-ey and basil. Tastes like it smells, but a little less pleasant. Average on the palate. Meh.

Growler from Sam’s in Durham. Served in a Full Steam shaker pint. Pours a fairly-clear golden with a nice white head. Nose carries light basil and faint notes of spice and pepper. Very light, base saison behind a nice herbal presence. Really tasty and well-integrated. Extremely refreshing.

Very interesting brew. Poured with a moderate head and a slightly cloudy golden color with just a tinge of green. Decent notes of basil in smell and taste. You almost feel healthy drinking this one...

Draft at Brewpub. Not getting much off the nose. Pours golden with a thin white head. Can’t quite place the taste but it’s flavorful. It has some similarities to a saison but it has some extra smoothness that I can’t place.

Expecting a pizza beer of sorts when I saw this on the menu. More like a biere de mars or a french saison. Lemon, basil, and wheat

poured into a glass from a growler, very pale gold color with foamy head, nice lacing, aroma is very sweet and citrusy, taste is bold and very delicious with a strong basil flavor and good balance of sweet, sour, and bitter. get lots of this whenever it’s in season.

Pours light cloudy straw yellow. Capped with a frothy white head. Aroma of gym shorts and basil with wheat and some raw eggs. Nice light mouthfeel with a dry bu tart finish. Lemony throughout, the basil rides on top of the witbier base.
