Belgian Ardennes might well be called the American Ale yeast of Belgian Strains. While Wyeast's American Ale yeast strain can be used in the production of almost any American ale, Ardennes can be used in the production of almost any Belgian ale, from light blondes and pales to dark and golden strong ales. It produces a subtle and well-balanced flavor profile, balancing the fruity esters typical of Belgian yeast with spicy and rich phenols. It is highly flocculant, therefore producing very clear beers with little effort. Try this in just about any Belgian style!
