From Samuel Adams:
As the name implies, Samuel Adams Belgian Session is our take on a summer sessionable brew. For those not familiar with the style, session beer is typically defined as any beer that contains no higher than 5 percent ABV (though many debate this number), featuring a balance between malt and hop characters and, typically, a clean finish - a combination that creates a beer with high drinkability. Session beer allows a beer drinker to enjoy multiple beers, within a reasonable time period, without overwhelming the senses or reaching inappropriate levels of intoxication.
For our Belgian Session, we use a top-fermenting Belgian yeast that creates signature Belgian notes of fruit and spice, particularly clove, in the aroma, flavor and finish of the beer. Our blend of malts nicely balances this Belgian character with a light toffee and caramel character from its subtle malt sweetness.
Belgian Session is exclusive to the Beers of Summer variety pack.
