look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a golden color with orange tints. Thick lasting white head.

S - Very fruity, mostly orange with some malt and yeast aroma added in.

T - Interesting combination of malt, orange and the yeast flavor. Very sweet finish.

M - Tangy due to carbonation and citrus/orange overtones.

O - Very drinkable and refreshing.

This is not my favorite style but I am trying to branch out more. I actually expected a different yeast profile that is typical in Belgian style beers. This is more like Belgian for people who really don't like Belgian.

This pours a clear, golden amber color with a thick foamy head. The aroma is yeasty with banana and lemon. The texture is fairly decent which is more than I can say about the taste. This is surprisingly bland and simple. This is basically an extremely thin and young version of a yeasty Belgian ale. One of the few Sam Adams beer that I can honestly say could use some work.
