Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, Belgian Session is a golden peachy-orange color with a soapy white head. The nose is lighlty sweet with white fruits and malty grains and just a hint of hefe-spice. The taste initially is of a hefe like spicy clove/banana note that is blended with white grape, pears and lightly toasted malt balanced ever so delicately with just enough hops to make sure the sweetness is not cloying. The mouthfeel is light in body with a thick, creamy carbonation. Overall, not a bad beer of which I would expect nothing less from the BBC.

Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass.
Appearance: Not too bad ... a decent head that quickly dissipates, and no lacing, but it has a nice orange color to it.
Smell: Spice and caramel is what I smell ... a somewhat odd combination, but still pleasant.
Taste: Very interesting, but also quite good. It has the spice and caramel that I get in the smell, but also citrus, tea, and -- dare I say it -- bubblegum. Not at all what I was expecting, but I dig it.
Mouthfeel: As the bottle says, smooth and refreshing. Nothing else to it. What else would you expect from a beer called Belgian >SESSION<?
Overall, a pretty average beer ... it lacks a little bit in flavor, but it's definitely refreshing.

Poured from a brown12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some malts and fruits. Taste is the same, malts, a bit fruity, a touch of spice. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking session beer.

From the 12 fl. oz bottle no. P1842035381 with an expiration date of Dec 2012. Sampled on August 2, 2012.
The pour is medium amber with a clear copper tone and a short-lived head that diminishes but leaves a little lacing.
Loads of aroma here with sweet pale malts taking the lead along with an interesting brush fire smokiness, toast, orange peel, and spice.
The body is medium and creamy.
The taste does not come on as strong as the aroma but it is a fascinating array of smoky malts, orange peel,and low hop bitterness. But in the end it is entirely drinkable.
