COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re pleased to announce the release of our latest beer – Le Petit Prince Farmhouse Table Beer. Le Petit Prince is a 2.9% ABV farmhouse table beer brewed with pilsner malt, two row malt, pale malt, pale malted wheat, a touch of Caramunich and acidulated malt, lots of Czech Saaz, East Kent Golding and/or other hops (depending on availability) and farmhouse yeast. This is a beer we’ve been excited about for quite some time now, as we believe that it’s a clear, simple expression of the delicate, delightful interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast.

Bottle. Clear yellow with a huge white head. Apple juice aroma. Light malts blend well with the farmhouse yeast. Super clean and light. A little grass and hay. Overall, easy but very forgettable. -- Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In short: A low abv and well hopped Belgian blonde ale that is not watery. Interesting alternative thirst quencher.
How: Bottle 750ml, a few times, always fresh.
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a small white head.
In long: This is a beer I’ve had a few times, never thought it was much of a Saison even if ratebeer says it is a Saison. Of course the beer is dry (d’oh, 2.9%) but I never thought it had that Saison character. What it had was extremely high drinkability, as easy to drink as a 2.9% beer should be without sacrificing the taste. You’ve got the typical Belgian blonde ale fruity esters and flavors (bananas and others) and a generous grassy hoppiness. Doughy round chewy cereals. Never watery despite its size. Quite an aromatic little beer. I wish someone would make beers like that in cheap 6-pack, but in semi-pricey 750ml I’ll go back to cheaper low abv pale ales to quench my thirst. Named after a famous book, that thing that is like a very long rating that doesn’t talk about beer.

Bottle (pre batch 11, I guess). Pale yellow, hazy. Dry stone fruity, some hay wheat. Some ginger. Light body. Wheaty malts, soft fruityness. Dry, citrus. Fruitier than the princess, softer too. Bit more flavour. Excellent low abv. Refreshing, nice.

Steve_0 (2542) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from some shithole liquor store. Hazy lemon pour with a big white head and sticky lacing. Citrusy, straw, biscuit, lactic, light vanilla, light herbs, and basil in the aroma. Taste is biscuit, crackery malt, grassy, somewhat earthy, and lactic with some sour lemon notes on the backend. Light body with high carbonation. Really nice quaffer and perfect for what it’s designed to accomplish.

allmyvinyl (2925) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours hazy gold, thin white head. Nice white pepper saison nose, light lemon sourness. Taste has more sour and yeast notes. Refreshing and good for the strength.

McNeillR (1122) - SCOTLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Very pale, watery golden with floss thin ringed head. Neat dusty light sherbert. Steely bitter, gritty enough hop. Terse dryness towards the finish, soft enough carbonation bolsters the lack of ABV more than I though.

Bottle, Let’s Go Digita Tasting, Cheers All My Vinyl

Beese (1540) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle from Euston Tap, London. Poured a cloudy ochre colour, with no head. Aroma was funky, with notes of wet dog, yeast esters and unripe fruit. Flavours were more appealing; some dry hops, straw and earth. Finish was light, crisp hops, grain and some dried fruit. Different.
