3.6/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured orangish-yellow with little head that dissipated almost immediately. Looks like it might be heavier than I was expecting. I'm not terribly impressed.

Smells slightly whets with a faint hint of intrusive. There's an underlying sweetness here too.

Tastes slightly more bitter than the smell led me to believe, and isn't as crisp and refreshing as I'd hoped, but it's good. There's a lot of lavor packed in here.

As usual, Sam brings it with the mouthfeel. This is really full-bodied and rich/creamy.

Overall, this beer is not what I expected at all, but generally, I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. It could be just a bit sweeter, but it really doesn't need to be, it's just my preference.

Belgian Session is a very good beer. form the first pour it has a strong golden color and aroma that is inviting for the first sip. That first sip is not going to disappoint. a crisp flavor that makes this a thoroughly enjoyable summer brew. I used a pint glass and it hung to the sides nicely. I would recommend this beer for any summer event and to go with a good old southern BAR BQ.

3.64/5  rDev +9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Clear gold. Slight head dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing.

S - Slightly spicy. I think there is a little clove, anise, banana,and coriander. Hard to pin down.

T - Clove, hops, and banana balance the smooth double malts in a complimentary fashion.

M - Smooth

O - Nice tasty brew has high drinkability quotient. Another winner from Sam.
