Picked up in NC over the holidays;
Pours golden with 3+ fingers of cream colored head. Good head retention & lacing
S: Starchy, apple peels & honey suckle
T: Golden delcious apples, cooked cereal notes, lemon zest & apple peel uo front. Slight pinapple notes, pears, lemons & apple peel as this warms. Finishes crisp, fruity & with whisper of barn funk & some chille pepper spice
MF: Failrly light in body, crisp carbonation
Not sure how old this is. No freshness dating I can see , not getting any Thai Basil (love that stuff with pork or chicken!) . Drinkable enough, but nothing mind blowing. Would buy again if I knew I was getting fresh beer

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
