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 itíll 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. durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Okay, wow, this is a bright light yellow beer thatís not letting any light through. Looks a bit intimidatingly thick. Nose show lemon, basil, yeast, and wheat. Almost like a wit meets a saison. Nice but nothing special. The basil is thankfully relatively mild. Tastes like it smells for the most part, but with a bit more of the wheatiness. Not bad at all.

Draft at Brewpub. Not getting much off the nose. Pours golden with a thin white head. Canít quite place the taste but itís flavorful. It has some similarities to a saison but it has some extra smoothness that I canít place. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Cloudy golden pour with frothy carb and decent retention. Very pungent basil nose, which - despite the commercial description - is a bit head-clubbing. Pretty decent farmhouse ale as the base beer, nice and dry with a bit of spice to it. The basil complements it pretty well but is too present. As is, good stuff but Iíll look forward to trying it again in the hopes that itís even more balanced. NCD (11) - - SEP 7, 2011
Expecting a pizza beer of sorts when I saw this on the menu. More like a biere de mars or a french saison. Lemon, basil, and wheat

Growler to snifter (thanks Jay). Looks solid; light-gold with thin white lacing. Smells pretty good too; saison-ey and basil. Tastes like it smells, but a little less pleasant. Average on the palate. Meh. jtclockwork (16444) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Draft - Pours yellow white head - Nose/taste of basil, lemongrass and bubblegum - medium body M4grem (57) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Very nice clean flavoring. Smooth with a bit of tang but not too much to tweak the salivary twangs. Refreshingly crafted.

Tap at CK. Low haze, flat blond pour. Nose is lemon hand soap, sage, rosemary. Taste is soapy, sage, herbal, lemon. Palate lemony, refreshing, a bit mealy and chalky. I donít mind these super herbal beers, but I reckon a good number of people would be thrown off by the lavender soap type nose and taste.

Draft sample at ChurchKey. Hay, bread, floral, herbs, grass, barnyard, leaves, banana. Thin and big on basil. Refreshinh, but not much going on.
