Can. Pours a somewhat hazy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and spice. Taste is citrus, yeast, malt, and some basil. Interesting. Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 20, 2015
I kinda wish this one were, I don’t know, basilier? Pretty sure that’s not a word, but you know what I mean. I mean, it’s there, but in the background. Still a very enjoyable beer... obguthr (6357) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Pounder: Lemon, pesto, pear, and cobwebs aroma. Greenish yellow, clear, thick head. Basil and lemon. Cobweb and celery finish. Light body, moderate carbonation. I really love basil in saisons, it’s a perfect combination. sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2015

AMber in color, hazy with a thin head. Nice easy Basil aroma and flavor. Easy drinking ale.
Growler from Sam’s in Durham. Served in a Full Steam shaker pint. Pours a fairly-clear golden with a nice white head. Nose carries light basil and faint notes of spice and pepper. Very light, base saison behind a nice herbal presence. Really tasty and well-integrated. Extremely refreshing. chinchill (5011) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2016
16 oz can served in a lager glass. May 2016 canning date.
The body is hazy and very light yellow with a touch of green. Decent white head on top.
Relatively delicate and clean flavor for style. Vegetative rather than fruity, but not in a bad sense. Vaguely herbal rather than obviously basil flavored. Tart aroma.
Medium-light body with medium carbonation. DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Draft at Brewpub. Not getting much off the nose. Pours golden with a thin white head. Can’t quite place the taste but it’s flavorful. It has some similarities to a saison but it has some extra smoothness that I can’t place. emacgee (4676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Pours a very cloudy/muddy yellow with thin wisps of white head. First thing that needs to be fixed on this is the appearance, once it has any degree of clarity and some head/head retention it’ll be a nice looking beer. Nose is a bit minty/basily, some lemon zest and yeast esters, mildly spicy. Flavor is a tad thin, zesty, notes of basil and mint, mild leafy feel, lemony, mildly yeasty. Palate shows a low carbonation and bitterness. thegreenrooster (4402) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Pour is a hazy pale golden, almost like lemonade, with a huge white head. Aroma is some yeast notes with lemongrass and a herbal basil. Flavor is light and tangy with mostly basil coming after the swallow. This was a bit too light and watery with just enough herbal flavor to make this something a little different.
