Sample at Industry Night at HomeBrewCon.
Faint witbier deep underneath an onslaught of spice, not for me.

On tap at Kloby's Smokehouse in Laurel, MD.

A - Pours a medium gold color with a thick, frothy white lacing ring. Very bright and very clear.

S - Basil aroma and not much more, overall, very light aroma that's almost non-existent.

T - Basil over the top of crisp, crackery, light honey malt. Nicely balanced between the spice and malt. Crisp and refreshing.

M - Medium body that has some substance to it, for a 5% beer I was expecting something thin and watery, this beer is surprisingly not that (in a very good way).

O - I don't love it, don't hate it, but could easily see myself throwing a few of these back on the deck during those hot summer nights. Worth checking out, especially for the unique aspect of the ingredients!
