Citrus and Basil Sharp Sour Saison (Pilot Beers)
I've always enjoyed fruity ciders and my beer preference is very much India Pale Ale or fruity beers so although this is awkward when you think of the combination I actually think it sounds very nice.
This is an oddball concoction the lemon and basil work well together and although it might not be exactly the combination I would pick it's very interesting and a very drinkable combination, will definitely be picking up more examples from this brewery in the future.
If you want to try this you can get it from Drinkmonger
Many thanks to the awesome guys at Drinkmonger for this beer sample.
There's not much citrus in the nose to begin with just lots and lots of leafy basil, then a touch of underlying hops, as it settles in the glass it becomes much more citrusy, lemon rind to the forefront
Sharp and tangy, lots of lemon rind, odd and leafy, the basil comes through stronger on the palate here, then more of the lemon rind.
Short and leafy
