Bottle shared by phaleslu. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have herbs favoring basil, citrus, additional fruits, and spices, some caramel, lightly toasted and grass. The flavor is a bit softer than the nose. Decent, perhaps given a different setting I ma have enjoyed this more. cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Justin! Pours a fairly clear yellow appearance wi a frothy white head. The basil is very potent in the aroma and the ginger isn’t far behind. There’s also some citrusy and spicy notes to the nose. A bit chewy, cracker malty, huge basil spicy, a bit salty, tangy, light citrusy, moderate ginger flavor. This baby is way over the top for me to drink on its own. Maybe it would be better paired with food.

22 oz. bottle from a local STL trade. Pours a semi-cloudy gold color with a small white head. The aroma explodes with all the spices and fruits promised in the description: ginger and basil lead the way, with lemon and peach, pale malts, and other herbs. The flavor is a milder version of the same. Light-bodied, with a dry, spicy, fresh-feeling mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Not for everybody, but I dug it.

22oz bottle, shared by phaleslu. Totally hazy, pale yellow color. Good thin white head. Bits of lace. Awesome ginger, lemon peel, floral aroma. Light thai-style spice. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lighter citrus, good lemon orange flavor. Nice zesty, little sweet, moderate bitter. Really enjoyed this. Pretty refreshing, even drowland (9067) - Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle during RBWG 2013. Herbal, Asian herbs, aroma with some spice. Breadiness, light spice, and more herbs on the flavor. Not bad. Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bomber from TWCP. I rolled it to unseat the yeast sediment. A nice fluffy off white head has decent retention. The beer is dingy golden brown and is hazy. The aroma is herbal with ginger, spices, and peach. Ginger and basil lead the flavors. Lemon is noted more in the after taste and is fairly subtle. The finish is ginger again. Malts and hops are scarce and this beer is all about the additional ingredients. I would love to see what the chefs did with this.
