Bottle shared at the Carolina Crew Gathering at Turdís Ė thanks to MrFacto for sharing. Or should we thank him? I donít know, but this is such a weird, messed up beer. And heaven help me, I actually started to like it a bit. Okay, thatís not entirely true. It looks like an average IPA, has a thin mouthfeel, and Iím ultimately not sure what this really contributes qua beer. But damned if it doesnít smell like stewed tomatoes, oregano, and basil. An experience.

Bottle. Curiosity got to me here, as when I walk by a car crash. Aroma is dirty and earthy, tomato, oregano, garlic, basil and a light sweet citrus. Pale orange pour with frothy beige head. Sticky, lightly tart, lightly bitter and bready taste is a bit rough, a bit crusty, overspiced with both a weak malt base and uninteresting bg hops. Light body, chalky after. I could see basil being used as an ingredient more often, based on this, especially in some off-kilter saisons, but otherwise ugh. Not unpleasant, as expected, and not even liquid pizza, as others here are claiming, but nothing worth buying twice or even finishing - a three ounce novelty.

16oz bottle-A slightly hazy very carbonated body with a small ring for a head. Aroma of pizza sauce. Taste of oregano, basil, slight hops, and slight tomato. This medium bodied brew is a little bitter as well. I wish I tried the original. A different tasting brew.

This was suprisingly very good. As far as flavored and fruit beers are concerned this one is particularly tasty and interesting. The scent smells (I kid you not) like very good pizza sauce. The taste is slightly less intense, but never the less there are without a doubt, some very spicy flavors of oragano and basil. The tomato flavor is subdued but plesant. On top of all of this there is a good light hop bitterness at the back of the tongue. The beer pours with a small head and is slightly cloudy and light orange.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2008 What an interesting drinking experience. Sampled with cheese pizza of course. A golden appearance. The aroma is pepperoni, oregano, and cheese. The pizza flavor is there but not overpowering. Some spiceness shows through in the finish. Overall it does have a pizza flavor for sure but my only complaint is the body is a bit thin

Created by Tom and Athena Seefurth of Campton Township, Illinois in his lifelong pursuit to combine two of the worldís great loves, pizza and beer. Some say itís the best pizza beer around. Feh! If I had a dollar for every time Iíve heard this... Oh, but Iíll give it a chance, as Iím a real sucker for unique beer it seems. Hm. Not to brag, but, itís a Pizza Parade, babies! Hands down, no question, it is pizza-y. That was the aim of Mister and Missus Seefurth and they achieved it. The nose is slathered in spicy, chunky, robust tomato sauce primarily, with just a slight bready background note. This, of course, carries over into the taste. Along the way, other flavors begin to develop -- some sweetish dough here, some chiffonade basil there. Even a pinch of red pepper spiciness. Oh, and packed with fresh garlic. Ah, the power of garlic. As with any pie, itís more of the same till the end, though the spices still had legs and carried on well past the finish. As you drink it down, the various flavors really start to come together as it slowly bakes in your gut, all of it settling vaguely under the definition of "pizza", at least in terms of flavor and aroma. No complaints here. However, as with Shortís Bloody Beer, I just canít see myself calling on this beer every day. Not bad at all, though. Easily the best pizza beer on the market.

Dark golden in color with a creamy off white head. Nose of pizza: tomato, basil, oregano and garlic with hints of bread dough. On the palate there is tomato and basil up front followed by a bread like finish with hints of garlic. I think this would have been better if they had used a lager as the base beer to give it some more body.

12 oz twist-off bottle. Wow! Smells just like Basil, Oregano, Tomato and Garlic. Huge vegetable aroma. Tastes like a light lager beer. its seems to be short of tasting like apizza. But a pizza it does smell like! Mamma Mia!

Pours a deep a cloudy orange color with a below average head, and below average lacing and slightly under carbonated. Smells of pizza spices hops. Tastes of oregano, onion, and garlic thatís complements nicely with a the hops. Not too badÖactually this is surprisingly fairly good
