COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The very first batch of beer we brewed on our 15-barrel brewhouse. It’s a rustic farmhouse beer finished with a healthy dose of Coon Rock Farm basil. Like the sweet potato beer, don’t anticipate being hit over the head with basil (though we will have some basil bunches to do that if you’d like). Instead, expect a balanced, refreshing country ale with just a touch of fresh basil on the finish. Try it with panzanella, local cheeses, or just quafff it in a mason jar on the front porch.

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.

Tap at CK. Low haze, flat blond pour. Nose is lemon hand soap, sage, rosemary. Taste is soapy, sage, herbal, lemon. Palate lemony, refreshing, a bit mealy and chalky. I don’t mind these super herbal beers, but I reckon a good number of people would be thrown off by the lavender soap type nose and taste.

Draft sample at ChurchKey. Hay, bread, floral, herbs, grass, barnyard, leaves, banana. Thin and big on basil. Refreshinh, but not much going on.

TURDFERGUSON (3953) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Pours super super cloudy with a small head. Looks homebrewish. Nose is better with some lemongrass, basil, citrus, earth. Flavor is similar but when combined tastes a little messy and muddled. Missing a crispness on the end that I love in a well made farmhouse/ saison. Not a bad effort, but it can and hopefully will be much better.

OldGrowth (2662) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2010
at City Beverage Durham. ok aroma, tart. Clove, basil, lemon. Cloudy yellow gold color, Ok head. Little to no lace. Sweet and sour flavor. Lite body, creamy smooth body, bitter dry finish, left me with a little soapy streak. Kind of grew on me as I sipped, basil was stronger than I remember at debut event. Aroma was favorite part, buy a small margin.

On draft. Pale yellow color with tiny bubbles. Grassy saison with a strong basil finish. Great mouth feel with developing flavor that gets more grassy as it warms.

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.
