I visited the brewery's tavern on Rigsbee Street in Durham where I found this on tap. Cloudy and vibrantly yellow in its appearance, it looked very much to style with a multitude of little bubbles on the sides. The fresh basil aroma was very inviting of the first taste as it seemed to have replaced the hops with its floral elements.
The first taste was a mild revelation as I could seemingly distinguish between the basil and the Saison as well as them both together. Easy drinking in its own way, this was clearly a unique selection to me that was a one round item.
I think the supporting element of Fullsteam's Saison would be just fine on its own merits without additional flavoring, though the Basil element was unique in my visit.
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.
