look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Had this on tap at Skinny Pancake in Burlington.
Served in a standard pint glass. A very light honey color with minimal sudsy head.
Smell was pleasant with some good bready background.
Taste was so nice, crisp with a lightly sour finish. Really, really enjoyed the sour finish that Lost Nation is so well known for.
Overall, a delicious, low alcohol beer that was refreshing, crisp and had great flavor.

@ Prohibition Pig

Hazy blonde color under an attractive, thick, creamy head. Aromas of pale, toasty malt, dough, and light spicy, fruity yeast esters. Nice, toasted malt sweetness in the flavor along with some pale, spicy fruit. Light bodied, super crisp, and extremely drinkable. Very nice...simple, but quite enjoyable. I enjoyed everything I tried from Lost Nation and I hope to pay them a visit next time I'm up in VT.

4.26/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Very light amber; medium sized white head sticks around. Slight haze.

S: Sweet and toasty malt along with yeasty fruitiness. A slight funky edge.

T: Toasty and sweet malts, very tasty Belgiany yeast notes. Pretty dry finish.

M: Medium light body, no astringency, clean dry finish.

O: Fantastic session beer; hits all the right notes.

edit: After a further few months of drinking this beer, I feel the need to revise my rating upward. It's just an outstanding example of an old school farmhouse ale. Full of flavor and you can still walk away in a straight line after having several. A great match for almost any food. Certainly captures the spirit of beer appreciation better than the many barrel aged, 12% ABV, specially treated whatever beers, though I like a few of those too.

3.73/5  rDev -9%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a pint glass at the Mad Taco.

Appearance - Clear golden yellow. Huge white head. Beautiful lacing and surface foam.

Smell - Lemony bright yeasty aroma. Some hops. A little yeasty.

Taste - Hop flavor up front. Citrusy. A little soapy. Touch of sweetness. Estery and a bit of grain.

Mouthfeel - Pretty light. Well carbonated. Grainy body as the flavor drops off.

Overall - This isn't the most flavorful beer, but it's tasty and clean.

I love all the achouffe beers, and yet the high alcohol makes it so I can only have a few...This is the best of both worlds! An amazing interpretation of a Belgian Pale Ale.

I has a great color, blonde is a perfect word for it.

It has great notes of tropical fruit, spice and herbs. The smell is great, combined with the solid carbonation and the wonderful mouth feel. This has easily become my got to draft beer. I just hope more folks start to carry it!

On tap at Prohibition Pig, into a tulip.

Poured an orangey gold, with a whispy white head that retained quite nicely. Nose has some toasty wheat, light spicing, musky/funky yeast notes and some gentle fruitiness. Palate follows, lovely funk and fruit notes, sweeter and drying. Feels like this would be a nice table beer.
