look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a La Fin Du Monde tulip glass.

The color is a slightly hazy gold with two fingers of foamy white head and some slight lacing left on the glass.

The smell has a nice hoppy aroma to it at first. There is a really malt aroma in the back that are complimenting the hops quite well. A nice grassy nose to this beer.

The taste has noble hop flavor that is slightly leafy and earthy. The malt flavor that seems to hold up the back and ever present, seems to meld well with the hops giving a Belgian candy sugar spicy flavor.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied and has a drinkable feel that us smooth but does kick slightly.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - It is an amber color, with a thick head of foam.

Smell - A fruity and spicy smell with some of the caramel malts coming in.

Taste - A citrusy fruit taste, with spices; nice malt background.

Mouthfeel - It has a good body and good carbonation.

Overall - I quite enjoyed this Samuel Adams beer.

Sam Adams Belgian Session - another great beer from the micro brewer that started it all. Across the board the beer is simply outstanding. A great mix on the odor of the beer with that burnt toffee smell to go with the hops and malts. The taste matched the smell (a big plus for me) and was smooth and crisp going down. The only knit was the appearance - although it coloring is appealing, the head has little to no staying power. Otherwise, really a great beer.
