look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Clear caramel with a coppery shine. Cream head recedes to a wisp with little or no lacing.

Aroma: Lemongrass and peppermint. All about the herbs, little else.

Taste: Slightly tangy at first, then a smooth sweetness for the remainder. The lemongrass is apparent at first, then it really starts to taste like ribbon candy from Christmas.

Mouthfeel: Light on body for a 7.5% ABV beer.

Overall: I inflated the score a bit, because this just tastes outrageously weird, I'm a good way. It really does remind me of ribbon Christmas candy.

Purchased at Safeway.
Appearance: Copper bronze color, decent white head with average retention.
Smell: Strong basil scent. Peppery spice notes too and light citrus.
Taste: Lemongrass and basil are at the forefront and as weird as it sounds, I think this works.
Mouthfeel: Velvety and creamy. Nice amount of carbonation.
Overall: Never had anything quite like it. This could grow on me fast.

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.

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.
