Pour is cloudy light yellow, looks alot like the Beasley's Honey White. Decent half inch light white head.
The smell is pretty good. Lots of spicy peppery Saison yeast esters (more spicy clove than anything). Sweet malt backbone, but I dont get a ton of basil, just a small hint that melds in with the yeast flavors.
Now this is how to mix herbs and yeast. wow. Lots of spiciness from both the yeast and basil. Black pepper, super spicy clove, and overly spicy basil come out, but not enough to overpower anything. Theres a slightly sweet thing from the malt that balances out what would be too spicy.
It finishes super clean and light. i like this one alot.
Serving type: on-tap

Extremely easy to drink, makes you want to drink it really. Not a super strong flavor but that's what makes it so drinkable. Good smell and taste. Sucks it has to be from durham that and my whole family are tarheels but I'll give credit. Very surprised by how much I like it.
