A beer a day: Samuel Adams Belgian Session

So I bought a case of Sam Adams Summer sampler and I thought I’d share my impressions on each beer, starting with Belgian Session. The bottle reads: A crisp, refreshing version of a traditional Belgian beer. Fruity, slightly spicy flavors from the Belgian yeast are balanced by toffee and caramel notes from our blend of malts. The hops provide a citrus character that rounds out this enjoyable brew. Cheers!

I’m not a beer expert by any means. Since turning 21 I’ve mostly stuck with the stuff I knew, Yuengling Lager in Pennsylvania (have not found it anywhere else I’ve lived [Texas, Mississippi and Idaho]), Bud Light Lime, Corona and the occasional Heineken.

Belgian Session has a sweet smell and a smoky aftertaste. It tastes like burnt wood in a way. Interesting. It’s rather smooth and easy to drink, but the smoky after taste is the most prevalent taste. Well I’m going to finish this beer. See you tomorrow!
