Blue Moon Tongue Thai-ed has a medium, slightly off-white head of foam, a hazy, quite bubbly, gold-orange appearance, and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma catches the nose right at the pour, with an overriding and strong basil and lemon grass smell. There is a back-note of breadiness. Taste is of basil, lemon-grass, sweet, white bread, and no real noticeable bitterness or alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit slick, and Blue Moon Tongue Thai-ed finishes semi-dry, spicy, and sip-able. Overall, if you enjoy drinking beer that tastes like chicken marinade, you should like this one, otherwise, you will probably find it off-putting.

22 oz. bottle, with best by date of December 30, 2013 printed on the bottleneck. My second of Blue Moon's "Graffiti collection" beers. Expectations are relatively low, but I'm going in unbiased. I love basil in cooking, but I'm not entirely sure how well it will go with beer.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours a bright orange colored body with about a finger of khaki head that dissipates to some suds quickly. Doesn't look like much, but it looks alright.

S - Appearances can be deceiving I suppose, because this thing smells like straight-up basil and hardly anything else. Dried lemon peel spice, herbal grass, pepper, and intense overpowering in your face basil.

T - This is pretty difficult to handle. The beer at it's core isn't entirely bad, but the overwhelming spicy grassy basil makes it almost unbearable. Once you get past the harsh basil, you can actually taste some of the bubblegum and sticky sweet malt buried in there. Hint of clove, white pepper, assorted herbal spice rack flavors, this beer is just not good.

M - Feel ends sticky, sugary, malty, and mildy bitter. Not much basil on the aftertaste, to my relief. Bit of lemon peel on the finish.

Overall, this beer doesn't really have anything going for it other than the initial gimmick of what it is. I suspect many who try this will drain-pour it or pass it off to a friend. This beer is truly foul, the worst thing I've ever drank from Coors's Blue Moon Brewing Company. If you see this beer, buy Blue Moon Pine In The Neck instead. I agree with some of the other users, I would rather cook with this beer than drink it.

No evidence of belgian ale style, despite the claim. Too much basil. Nice try but no cigar. Tradewinds by The Bruery in Orange County, CA is a belgian trippel with thai spices, good balance of flavors and works much better with spicy foods. Sells in the OC for $8 or $9 for a 22 oz bottle.

A clear dark amber colored beer with a tall tan colored head.

The label says Belgian-Style special ale brewed with lemongrass & Basil.

Smells strongly of basil, lemon and pepper. Little bit of malt but those three scents dominate the smell.

Starts out mildly sweet with a strong basil and lemon flavor. That is about it tastes of Lemon and Basil, strong enough maybe this can be used for cooking. Little bit of malt and faint taste of pepper and that is about it.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall sort of a gimmick beer, tastes of what is says on the bottle.
