The Boston Beer Co.’s Samuel Adams Belgian Session beer will make its debut next month. The new variety is a crisp, bright version of a traditional Belgian beer that combines fruity, slightly spicy flavors from Belgian yeast with toffee and caramel notes from a blend of pale and honey malts, the company says. It’s brewed with Hersbrucker and Ahtanum hops, with Strisselspalt hops added late in the fermentation process for a citrus aroma, it adds. Samuel Adams Belgian Session contains 4.3 percent alcohol by volume. The beer will be available through August as a six-pack, which will retail for approximately $7.99, and as part of the Samuel Adams Summer Styles Variety 12-pack, which will retail for approximately $13.99.
