COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Ardennes Forrest is a region in Belgium where some of the worlds 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.

Draft sample at the source. The beer is a hazed yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma is grassy, herbal, pine forward, but juicy pine notes. Floral and perfumy. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Appearance :
Top: medium sized, left rings on glass.
Base: hazy gold
Palate : soft, mild silky feel on semi dry body. Average plus finish. Soft top.
Taste: simply great. Enough character entered with out being heavy or tiresome. This is how beer should be. Nothing overdone in perfect balance of flavor, body and palate.

commonmac (1091) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Tap at Ri Ra in Burlington. Pint glass. Hazy and unfiltered deep golden color. Nice quarter finger head. Aroma leans on lemony citrus hop notes. Taste is juicy with citrus at the forefront. Mild hop bitterness that sticks around to the finish. Mouthfeel is too thin for what I expected. Im looking for more spicy notes or just more flavor in general. Coming away slightly disappointed. Could be the establishment.

Tap at Reservoir, Waterbury. Colour is clear golden with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, some Belgian style and malts. Very weak Belgian style ale IMO. Belgian session ale? Sorry but this is little bit of disgrace.

Bulk_Carrier (4095) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 9, 2016
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 wasnt served in correct glassware.
