Great flavored beer. It’s sweet wheat and earthy basil taste confuses the palate leading to the only conclusion to be made. Great Beer! warmsilence (25) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2011
poured into a glass from a growler, very pale gold color with foamy head, nice lacing, aroma is very sweet and citrusy, taste is bold and very delicious with a strong basil flavor and good balance of sweet, sour, and bitter. get lots of this whenever it’s in season.

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. obguthr (6666) - 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. coombuyah26 (13) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2017
This is a really nice, not overly yeasty saison. Very light, aromatic, and nothing overwhelming. You can tell there’s basil in there, but it’s very subtle, more lemony than anything. Pours with a nice foamy head that lingers. Overall, a great summer brew I’m glad I went out on a limb on.

On tap at the brewery; I’ve also had it several other places in downtown Durham. I love basil and anything with basil in it, so I was really excited to try this one, and it did NOT disappoint. Pale golden coloring with a lacy off-white head. BIG basil note in the taste, and it lingers long after. A VERY refreshing summer beer; I can’t wait to have it again next year. bubbleflubber (2235) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2010
On draught at Bruisin’ Ales Teaser Tasting. Pours cloudy with a diminished sudsy head. A huge bouquet on this one! Nice, of saison and farmhouse grains and multiple herbs. Lots of clove and basil flavors, with a sweet and spicy finish, almost numbing via the cloves. On the palate, it’s a very easy quaff with a smooth mouthfeel, round body and subtle carbonation. Very tasty!
