12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter

A - It pours a deep golden color. It is crystal clear with two inches of off-white head. The head receded leaving no trace of its presence.

S - The aroma is light fruit and spices. Spiced pear comes to mind.

T - The taste is rather bland. The spices and fruit from the aroma are minimal.

M - Moderate to thin.

O - I am a little disappointed. The smell was good, but the taste was lacking. I expected a better interpretation from the Boston Beer Company.

Belgian Session Brewed by Boston Beer Company with an ABV of 4.3% This brew pours of a dark amber color with a nice white head. Samuel Adams Belgian Session is a filtered brew you can see right thought it. The smell is rich with grains and some bitterness. So far this brew is doing well. Now for the taste; it is smooth real smooth and light. It is crisp, but you do pick up on some spices in this brew. The mouthfeel is nice an refreshing and clean. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. Samuel Adams did a nice job with this brew. Overall I'm giving this brew 4.5 out of 5. I would get this brew again.

Single bottle from a mixed pack poured into a tulip glass. A dark golden honey color with around a half-inch of firm white bubbly head. Rather effervescent brew with a nice look. Aroma is unassuming, however ... Faintly malty, with a little brown sugar but nothing overly robust, along with some apple and a pleasant but again subtle hop spice, floral and citrus notes discernible here and there. Flavor is somewhat more robust but still low key, some nice brown spice (cinnamon and nutmeg) notes flitting in and out, breakfast cereal malts, and tangy faintly floral and fruity hops. Very downplayed Belgian yeast character although the latter is certainly present. Does develop more of a honeyed sweetness as it warms. I get the notion here and this is indeed a solid sipper to session out on the deck all afternoon. No real off-flavors. Personally, I am not afraid of more aggressive Belgian flavors and would choose a Belgian pale right from the source before seeking out this again.
