3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery; Iíve also had it several other places in downtown Durham. I love basil and anything with basil in it, so I was really excited to try this one, and it did NOT disappoint. Pale golden coloring with a lacy off-white head. BIG basil note in the taste, and it lingers long after. A VERY refreshing summer beer; I canít wait to have it again next year.

Tallboy can @ home, thanks to jcnielsen. Pours a very light yellow appearance with a white head. Aroma is quite floral / green herbal, a bit twangy, bubblegum, and peppery. Moderate plus sweetness, low bitterness. Lots of green herbs, basil, pineapple, and bubblegum. I wouldnít drink this again.

I kinda wish this one were, I donít know, basilier? Pretty sure thatís not a word, but you know what I mean. I mean, itís there, but in the background. Still a very enjoyable beer...

Old rating. Straw, grassy saison body with a giant dose of basil. Light and drinkable but not very complex.

Out of a bottle drank outside at OBX. Atmosphere adds to this one! Delicious funk with some hints of basil. Really a good beer and different from the "normal" craft beer.
