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.

McNeillR (1325) - 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

Stuu666 (3538) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours clear golden yellow, yeasty, light spice nose, taste is dry toffee, yeasty, refreshing.

Beese (2555) - 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.

Boutip (4856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a light dirt yellow color ale with a super huge slightly off-white foamy head with good retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of funky yeast notes with light rustic notes and light peppery notes. Taste is a refreshing mix of rustic malt with a pinch of lemon and some light peppery yeast with a light dry funky finish. Body is quite full with good carbonation. This is exactly like the farmhouse ale must have tasted like in my imagination.

TXBadger (1512) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Reviewed from notes: pours a hazy light yellow color with white head. Citrus, wheat, and a bit of funk on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied and easy on the palate. Finishes with a bit of funk and wheat.

DialSquare (2908) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2014
750ml bottle from Proof. Light yellow pour with minimal white head. Aroma of straw, lemon, little funk. Tastes are light drinkable, yeast, grass, lemon, wheat, spices. Very nice - didn’t know it was low ABV until half way through. Nothing crazy, but truly session brew. A sixer of this on the beach would be perfect.

Beerhunter111 (8273) - Hasborn, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes goldgelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig fruchtig, Citrus, würzig. Geschmack würzig malzig, Citrus, minimal bitter, hefig.

foxo82 (709) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe at least a year ago. Cloudy yellow. Small head. Smooth feel. I still don’t ’get’ saisons - this one is much like the others I’ve had: fruity and inviting in the aroma but lacking any duration to the taste. Like a watered down Belgian wit.

drjay44 (2730) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2014
750 ml. capped bottle. Batch #9/10 MAR 2013. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a very slightly hazy yellow (SRM 2) body.....nose is cereal, with light toasted malts, minimal esters, light hops dusty tones.....taste is light dried malts, with cereal, bread, light spice tones, finishing lightly bitter....mouth fee, light body, moderate acid. This is an incredibly light beer, with hints of Saison intermixed with Kolsch, Pale Lager. There is little complexity in any sense. It would be grand as a re-hydration beverage but really isn’t a Saison. It is also a year old and who knows how much was lost in that time? . BJCP 6/2/10/3/5

jkwalking05 (3914) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2014
750 mL bottle. Pale gold in color with a decent sized white head. Aroma is of hay, straw, heavy lemon, grain, and light florals. Taste is of grain, hay, and lemon. Crisp and refreshing.
