COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Ardennes Forrest is a region in Belgium where some of the world’s best beers are produced. We used these beers as inspiration in brewing this Belgian session ale. Petit Ardennes is a light bodied blonde beer with notes of spice, herb, and tropical fruit. A very easy drinking beer with a low alcohol content that still has great flavor.

On tap at The Reservoir, Waterbury, VT. I helped kill the keg. So they had it in a mason jar for me, the rest is based on observations. The appearance was basically a hazy burnt yellow color with a light transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising to fill a quickly dissipating white foamy head. Moderate lacing. The smell had some sweet citrus, light floral, and then some white pepper. Belgian sugars underneath. The taste was mainly sweet initially following through into the white pepper nicely. Light semi-sweet Belgian sugar aftertaste. Wet sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light and smooth. Nice stickiness. Not cloying, good. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Belgian ale that I would have again even if it wasn’t served in correct glassware.
