Hazy yellow color with white head. Basilic aroma, spicy, a bit citrus. Overall boring. A spicy wit beer which is a bit off.

pale straw-like, floral, citrus, cloudy, minimal head, white foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, average carbonation, the basilic is light with a little touch of wheat. Not bad at all.

Cloudy orange color with no foam at all. Thin smell, basil notes between shy witbeer smell. The taste focused on the basil taste which works sufficiently well. On second note it becomes rather boring. It stays a refreshing solid beer with an interesting note. Nice beer with an overall bonus for the experiment.

On bottle at Fork & Bottle, Zurich. Cloudy, pale yellow colour, explosive opening. Acidic lemon aroma blending with basil. Strong acidic fruity flavours moderated by bitter basil and a hint of coriander. Absolutely interesting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml served in a pint glass.
A Belgian Witbier style beer spiced with Basil.
A: Pours a cloudy pale yellow color forming a small white thin bubbled head that disappears quickly leaving thin chunks of lacings in the glass.
S: Spicy. Basil is evident. Reminds pesto sauce :). Also notes of a Belgian Witbier: Wheat, orange zest, coriander, bready yeasts and flowery hops. Not bad.
T: Follows the nose. Strong notes of spices: Basil, coriander, orange zest. Strong notes of pale malts and wheat. Upfront is slightly sweet. In overall, it’s slightly sweet too, but not overwhelming. Mild hops bitterness as expected.
M: Light watery body. Medium carbonation. Pesto aftertaste.
O: Good drinkability. That’s the first time that I drink a beer tempered with basil. Interesting experience.

Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a hazy light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have floral and herbal hops, especially on the nose, pale malt, basil is noticeable, some yeast, moderately sweet. Not something I would seek out again.

Tap sample. Poured clear yellow color with an average white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium spice aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced spice flavor with a medium dark sweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Totally hazy golden, slightly orange color. Thin ring of white head, couple ropes of lace. Perfumey hop aroma, some musty old hop type taste. Just a hint of basil.. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter, kind of creamy carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Moderate sweet taste, lightly zesty. OK witbier. Kind of spicy and peppery, don’t really get much basil from it. A bit yeasty, with an odd sort of soapy hop aroma.

Bottle @ Tröls. Wheat, spices, basil, and grass. Not to my taste, the basil is way to dominant, but i would be interesting to try with food.
