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.

philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - AUG 12, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Medium bodied golden/orange pour, clear with frothy white head. Full floral aroma with orange, grass. Wonderfully balanced flavors of wheat with citrus. Not too sharp/dry, not too sweet. I could drink this all day. The Lost Nations brews are really well done overall but this might just be my walk away favorite.

malrubius (1674) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at Pizza Stone. Pale hazy yellow with lasting head and lace. Lemon pastry citrus bready floral aroma. Citrusy tropical fruit with spicy mild sweetness. Very dry and light. Soft mouthfeel. Excellent.

Stine (1526) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Cloudy, rust orange; layers of building lace. Rustic, briny aroma with apple cider vinegar, coriander, lemon, salt, pungent earth, and green herbs.

Excellent balance between sourdough and wheat bread and delicate floral bittersweetness; light creamy fruit forms the soft core.

Zesty palate, maybe a bit wet in the middle. Hops are dancing around throughout without making much of a statement. High quality stuff.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Hazy orange brown with white foam. Nose is yeast, light citrus and pith. Medium light with soft carb. Taste is grain, citrus pith and lemon peel. Good session stuff or with some incredible BBQ.

radarsock (894) - Vermont, USA - MAR 16, 2014
$5 flight purchased at the source. Shared with jamesewelch by the windows. Pours an effervescent yellow with a thin white ringed head resting atop. Tastes and smells of bubblegum, butterscotch, sawdust, Belgian yeast, blueberry leaves, and earl grey tea. Slightly fruity. Has a restrained earthiness, as well.

WillRunForBeer (631) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Taster at the source. Pours pale orange gold with a white head. Aroma is wheat, clove allspice. Taste follows nose... Thin wheat backbone, strong spice. Clove finish. Pretty decent considering the abv.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Floral hop notes and trickling honey join in this crisp, überdrinkable Belgian-style Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty blond.
-Malts share cracking cereals and mild residual sugars.
-Mouthfeel is pleasantly dry (felt drier than their Saison even!).
-Hops also add green spiciness in the finish.

On tap at the brewery taproom.
