The bottle says consume fresh. I did not. For that, I do not taste the Thai basil. But I do taste an excellent version of a tripel. Very yeasty. Nice aroma. Banana. Well done. Rice? I don’t get it either. No matter.

Pours hazy gold with a bubbly off-white head and a sweet malt aroma. However, the flavor is not very sweet but, rather, sort of herbal and a bit thin. Not what I would expect from a Tripel. It is refreshing and tastes pretty good, so I still enjoyed this one, even though it is not typical.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours hazy gold with a 5 finger foamy white head. Aroma is spicy fruit. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Goes a bit thin as the carb leaves. Mildly spicy and a touch yeasty. Think I get the basil. It’s a bit unusual, but interesting. I’d believe it was Belgian.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a huge fizzy off white head. The aroma is moderately sweet malts, mild fruitiness that is peach-like, grainy bready malts, with the splash of basil. The flavor is mild sweet malts, lightly fruity, noticeable spices highlighted by the thai basil, herbal, dry but smooth sake like feel, with active carbonation. Medium bodied. This, like many other Bruery beers, always makes interesting use of ingredients which gives them points in my book. This was more enjoyable than most tripels.

(Bottled, 0.75l) Hazy orange with a small, firm and lacy head. Aroma of sweetish malt and fruitiness. Flavor is quite acidic with orange-peel, dry maltiness. Medium body, medium, fizzy carbonation. A decent tripel with a nice - although acidic - Belgian feel. A bit too acidic for my taste, though.
