Samuel Adams "Belgian Session"
Boston Beer Company - Boston, Massachusetts USA
Belgian Ale (ABV 4.25)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a clear medium amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that slowly receded down to a thin cap and large collar of residue, thus creating some really good streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of toffee, citrus (lemon), clove and banana.

The taste was light, sweet and malty with a hint of toffee and citrus up front, with the finish being quite yeasty with a big note of banana and a hint of clove towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a nice fruity yeast taste left hanging around.

Mouthfeel was light in body and had a mildly dry watery texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall basically a typical yeasty Belgian beer, what was really nice was this beer was extremely flavorful with a low ABV making it a great session brew...
