I had my first 3 Stars brew not too long ago and it was fantastic which just makes me want to try more of their beers...including today's, which I was lucky enough to have straight from the growler (pictured below).

Of course 3 Stars is participating in a number of DC Beer Week events next week. See below for some links on DC Beer Week.

Look-cloudy straw yellow color

Smell-Interesting in that I haven't smelled anything like this before. Lime for sure with subtle pepper notes. I love basil but I don't get much in the nose.

Taste-Pepper is the first thing I get and then some hints of lime...and, ahhh, THERE's the basil! Make sure you swirl it.

Mouth-Light bodied and crisp. The swirl also brings out more lime flavor. Surprisingly dry finish.

Overall-Try this beer now as it's a great summer session beer. Better yet, get to a DC Beer Week event and try it there!

About Lime Basil Saison:

This summer session saison is crafted for easy drinking during the hotter months. Only 4.6% ABV, it has subtle aromas of basil and pepper with an underlying bite of citrus from fresh lime peels. This beer is perfect for your summer grill outs - fish, chicken or burgers with fresh veggies from the garden.
