Not the most authentic representation of a Belgian Ale....but still worth trying if you are a Samuel Adam's fan.

Tastes a little yeasty, but It is missing something. Taste stays in your mouth a bit after drinking, but it doesn't make a memorable impression.

Pours a dark golden yellow with airy head of foam.

Toasted malts, mild spicy Belgian yeast.

Biscuits, toast, Belgian yeastiness.

Light-bodied, medium-high carbonation, yeasty.

Overall, a pretty bland beer. Makes for a rather lackluster experience.

Poured a light brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured herbal hop and a vibrant ester.

The taste consisted of a very clean, sgharp ester and full on herbal hop. Some white pepper noted as well.

The mouthfeel was fill and round.

Overall a serviceable Bekgian style ale. Sessionable and flavorful.
