My 100th beer review!!! Love this beer lots of taste to this beer Not the best but the toffee sets the tone for this beer. I love it in the variety packs want to find it outside the v paks as i do with a lot of sam adams beers i havent seen in six packs but i guess that is normal since Boston Lager was my first delve in the craft world

Clear looking beer but barely any head to beer and minimal lacing on the glass.Great smell to it!! Just love the smell to the beer.Very crisp taste to it. Can taste the spices and love thats its a easy to drink beer.I wish Samuel Adams would put it out in 6 packs its a shame this beer shows up on seasonal summer packs.

I'm surprised this is rated so slow because it tastes exactly like I thought it would when it is called a Belgian Session beer. It's fantastically crisp with light notes of Belgian yeast, honey, and clove. Everything is subtle and amazingly drinkable

Pour is not great for a Belgian. A clear Golden color with a little bit of carbonation that creates a thin white head with very nice retention.
Smell is very nice. A good amount of Belgian sugars and floral hops. However, this beer adds a nice amount of hefeweizen smells of biscuit and a strong banana in the nose.
Taste is very nice. A good Belgian taste of floral hops and sweet sugars, but a much lighter tone. Instead, there is a cleaner wheat taste with banana undertones, too.
Mouthfeel is not as thick as the regular Belgian. It has a thinner feel to it and a nice refreshment too.
Drinkability is awesome on this beer. A very refreshing Belgian that is great for the summer time. An awesome selection from Sam Adams that I would suggest for anyone.
