COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This creamy and spicy farmhouse ale has been making a Grand Ole splash since it hit the beer scene. The thai basil, sourced from Bloombury Farms, and rye malts take center stage; offering complexity while remaining approachable. One can taste a variety of notes, with tones of pepper and fennel on the nose and palate.

mcberko (20289) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2017
On tap at Tennessee Brew Works, pours a clear golden with a small beige head. Aroma brings out fresh basil notes upfront, light pepper and saison yeast. Flavour is along the same lines, with pepper, basil and spicy Belgian saison yeast. Spicy and herbal on the finish. Nicely done.

On tap at GABF 16'. Pours hazy orange gold with frothy white head. The aroma is strong basil and bready malt. Thin body, rye, licorice, basil, light finish, good.

Tap @ Tennessee Brew Works, Nashville. The basil is very stated and lingers long in its aftertaste.

Pours clear gold with a finger of white head. Aroma is pungent tangerine with a hint of ginger. Flavor is smooth with gingerbread spice and floral citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oobawa (1929) - Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2017
A tad on the sweet side for a Saison, with strong notes of red apple sweetness and a slight banana undertone. Rye adds a bitter spiciness to the back end, and the Thai basil blooms as the beer warms. Yeasty finish is tempered by the booziness, but the herbaceous fade adds a nice touch. Not pretty enough for a Saison, though, lacking much head or lace, and the nose is straight corn and wheat, no basil apparent. Feels a bit soft for a Saision as well. Still, not a bad beer overall.

brwhyan (7) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 27, 2015 does not count
Very smooth, you can definitely smell/taste the basil but not too overpowering. I wasn’t sure what to think at first but I enjoyed it.

petergaynor (137) - NEW ZEALAND - DEC 27, 2014
10oz draft pour, golden colour with a hint of bronze. Sweet and slightly yeasty on the nose. Taste is a tad sweet, some nice funk but not a very interesting beer.

Tap. Golden, medium head. Aroma is like a spicy Belgian ale. Taste is also like a Belgian ale.
