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.
