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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle, 75 cl. Cloudy yellow with a small, creamy white head. Aroma is wheat, light farmyard, hay, flowery hoppy, comomile, orange peel, citrus. Taste is initially light sweet malty leading to a more crisp, dry, light bitter, citrusy, yeasty finish, slightly astringent. Watery texture, refreshing. My kind of "table beer".

drfabulous (4416) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 16, 2012
750 thanks to SPDickerman. Pours a nice orange yellow. Tart. Lemon. Yeasty without being too much. Nicely hopped. This is really good. At this ABV, it is also truly sessionable. Very refreshing.

Scopey (8055) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle at Craft Beer Co Brighton. It pours lightly hazy straw yellow, with a medium white head. The nose is spice, wheat, orange, tangerine, soap, sweaty sock and farmyard. The taste is hay, straw, wheat, spice, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, spice and tangy fruit. Light body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Flavoursome and very drinkable stuff indeed!

jmagnus87 (2823) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2012
750ml bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a lightly cloudy dark yellow with about a finger of white head. Aroma is predominately doughy yeast with a little bit of caramel and some very light hops. Taste is light bitter. Mostly herbal hops with a little citrus and lots of doughy yeast. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Fizzy carbonation and a long finish. Overall, very good. I would gladly drink this again.

degbert (1270) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a high, creamy, long-lasting head. The nose is fruity -- apple, citrus -- but with an almost lactic undertone, like good sharp cheese. The flavor is clean and lemony, with some phenolic elements; not overwhelming, though, and very easy to drink. Spritzy on the tongue. Jester King continues to be talented.

teorn88 (3489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2012
75cl bottle at Cask, London. It pours a hazy light golden colour with a big white head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is barnyard, wet hay, some funk and peppery yeasty note. Taste is similar, with hay and baryard notes. Light flowery and grassy notes. Light bitterness. Body is medium to light with good carbonation. Overall, this would be a great saison in its own merit, but at 2.9% ABV is simply a masterpiece.

Kristall-König (2372) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2012
Süßlich-lieblicher Geruch, zitronig mit hefiger Note. Süßlich-zitroniger Einstieg ins Geschehen. Mittelteil aromatisch, bitter einsetzend. Abgangs liquide, zitronig, bisquiteartig und trocken. Erfrischendes Bier. Gut, auch mit wenigen Prozenten.

Koelschtrinker (11753) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 1, 2012
Bitterer Beginn mit zunehmender Hopfigkeit, die aber selbst in ihrer Spitze der Bitterkeit unterliegt. Bitter bleibend, im Hintergrund grasig, hefig, leicht. Im Abgang nochmal ein Stück bitterer. Ein ansprechendes Leichtbier mit gelungenen Aromen. 10/10/12/10/9/10

Idiosynkrasie (4466) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2012
750ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with average frothy white head. Wheaty aroma, a bit dry strawy, decent touch of yeast. Taste is wheaty and strawy, light bodied, lacks expression. Easy to drink light Ale.

j12601 (7350) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Pouring at The Festival in Worcester. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Brown sugar, soft wheat. Light and crisp, musk and wheat. Small but still flavorful, lots of nice wheat and musk. Lightly musky, and funky on the finish. Very nice.
