3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
GTMW 2015. Very strong basil aroma. Lots of basil in the flavor, some salt, and yeast. Gold color, I don’t think this is sweetened and I like the spice and coriander. A little unusual.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Brewpub with Patty and Dan. Pours golden with no head or lace. Tastes like yeast, dry lemon, light apple, light herb and some other spice. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like yeast, apple, grapes, light citrus, light herb.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Growler pour) Nice yeasty aroma, with a hint of spice and citrus. Pours a hazy pale straw-yellow with a thin white head. Quite a bit sweeter then most saisons I’ve had, with some earthiness in the finish. The finish lingers for a while, with the earthy notes and a touch of spice. Not a bad saison, not sure if I’d pick this up over some of the other Willoughby beers though.

Spicy. Coriander, I think. Slightly woody finish, perhaps from the spicing. Bright.
