look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

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.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a standard pint.

A: Amber hue. Pours a 2 finger, foamy, brown-white head. Quickly settles. No real lacing.

S: Ginger, basil, and black licorice dominate.

T: Black licorice kicks you in the face initially. The soft basil finishes though.

M: Bitter and biting.

D: The character will dictate a sipping experience.

Atmosphere is okay. Nice hue, foamy head, no lacing. Nose is ginger, basil, and dominated by licorice. Tastes like it smells. Biting pungent licorice, but finishes with the delicate savory basil. Overall, this is an okay...albeit interesting...quaff.

Honestly, I don't really know how to rate this. I think it does what it intends, but I don't think it's meant to really sit through a whole bottle.
