Enjoyed on draft at Craft Brewed in Nashville.

A: Pale yellow with nice 2 finger head. Lots of sticky lacing.

S: Spices mixed with earthy and grassy undertones. Basil, pepper, funky yeast, and rye grasses.

T: Herbal flavors with a bit of a peppery kick. All of the nice earthy funk you would expect in a nice saison. The rye malts give it a different twist.

M: Light and refreshing and nicely carbonated.

O: A very nice saison. The basil adds just that little something to make it interesting and unique.

Good lace but small head. Gold and nearly clear

Spicy nose and flavor which comes across as licorice and peppery.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong yeast, smoke, sweet malt, slight pale malt, hint of hop, and strong biscuit. This is not a Saison, but it is really good beer. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of ginger, slight yeast, hint of hop, alcohol, slight spice, and slight sweet malt. Overall, good appearance, aroma feel, body, and blend.

The basil was just not a good flavor for me, and I love basil. The combo in this recipe just seems like a bad fit.
