WOW!

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!

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.

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.
