Very fresh growler from Bottle Revolution: "Best Before 09/03/12"
Foggy straw yellow under a large, though fleeting, airy pure white head. Fresh basil hits the nose immediately. Sweet pale malt, pepper, maybe some clove and licorice. Basil upfront in the flavor, well integrated with fresh grain. Subtly sweet, crackery malt, light lemon, very mild yeasty funk melding with the herbalness. Creaminess in both aroma and flavor. Pretty light, drying, and solidly crisp. Super refreshing. I think this is a little less basil-forward than what I had last year, which is a good thing. Not super Belgian-y overall, but quite satisfying and appropriate for the summer season.

Finally getting this one into the system - had it awhile ago, fresh, at the brewpub.
Served in a tall weizen style glass, the beer is an opaque-cloudy golden in color, topped with a nice layer of bone white carbonation, leaving some light lace
Lovely aroma, clean malts, delicately spicy yeast influence, fresh basil aroma in ideal proportion - not exactly subtle, but that's not the point, really nice basil presence, light lemony citrus, grassy.
carbonation lively, body refreshingly light but not thin
Pale malt flavors, crisp and clean, perfect basil flavor - fresh and very complimentary to the style, hops grassy and imparting a refreshing bitterness, some spicy yeast flavors, a little bready at times, quite nice.
Love the implementation of the basil here, matched perfectly to the base, and shows off the best parts of the herb, others herbed this way have been a bit heavy handed.

Growler from Sam’s in Durham. Served in a Full Steam shaker pint. Pours a fairly-clear golden with a nice white head. Nose carries light basil and faint notes of spice and pepper. Very light, base saison behind a nice herbal presence. Really tasty and well-integrated. Extremely refreshing.
