hazy gold, puffy white head. Light basil nose, lemon and grass. Soft flavor, light basil and weed, grainy and supremely reminiscent of DuPont’s Cervesa. Spice forward, incredibly light but doesn’t accomplish anything while doing so. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Hazed yellow/gold pour with a normal white head. Sweet up front, a hint of grains and honey. I get a ruby red grapefruit presence in the background but not much pomegranate. Pretty standard saison. Its good, I was just expecting a bit more. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow with thin white head. Strong basil aroma, with some pepper, grapefruit, grass. Light to medium body. The basil flavor in not as prominent as the nose but some comes through. Also, pepper, grapefruit. keepersj12 (3114) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2013
From a growler. Very interesting brew. The pour is a pale amber with a white head. The aroma has a lot going on, grapefruit, grass, some spice. The flavor has the same with a nice alance to it. Slipstream (2608) - USA - SEP 15, 2013
