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.
