Bison Brewing in Ukiah, California. The label is simple, depicting a bumble bee about to really piss off an enormous bison. There is a little story on the neck about buying organic and another on the side setting your expectations for this beer.
Nice aroma. Pronounced basil, fresh from the herb garden, takes turns with a more muted honey scent. Very interesting. Sweet honey translates right into the first sip; however, a quick herbal basil punch takes away some of that and offers a slight cooling sensation. This basil is powerful and immediately identifiable, assuming you have ever cooked in the kitchen, even once. So far, the basil and honey complement each other wonderfully.
Prickly carbonation and a spicy and light 6.0% alcohol kick do a great job at helping each flavor reach its full potential. Hard to describe, but the feel is kind of exhilarating in my mouth. Good body, too. In the end, a little on the sweet end of balanced. Though it was refreshing, I believe just a touch less sweetness would make this beer even easier to drink a few at a time. Really nice flavors, certainly creative and out-of-the-box away from normal. I totally respect that and think you should absolutely grab a few of these.
