Cliff notes: Classic tripel flavors with a new-school twist, which makes for a crisp, refreshing summer beer.
In depth review:
750ml bottle, poured an opaque golden amber, with a huge cloud-like fluffy head, that left some mild lacing.
Lot's of spice and sweet, bright fruits on the nose--almost iced tea like. However there is a bit of a bite with the basil that gives it some earthy undertones.
Tastes of light fruit, a citrus/mint , pepper, and of course a lint hint of spicy basil. Don't like the thai basil fool you though, there is plenty of light 'sweet' in this beer.
I love the mouthfeel on this, it was very crisp and light, since they did away with all the sugars, so I found it quite refreshing on a hot summer day.

On tap at Hops & Pie in Denver; poured into a tulip.
Appearance - gold, clean with a medium white head that recedes quickly. Lacing is weak, but there.
Smell - mildly sweet with some citrus and ripe fruit.
Taste - some fruity sweetness, tartness and bitterness that hides the 8% ABV. Very tasty and incredibly refreshing!
Feel - balanced, with a light to medium feel. Very flavorful and easy to drink!
Overall - I love the style and this beer in particular, however for the price, I'd likely pass it over in my local bottle shop.
Serving type: on-tap
