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.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours a great looking cloudy yellow with fluffy, white, pillowy head. Aroma has a great bouquet of hoppy grass, light citrus with some dusty farmhouse notes. Flavor is grassy hop, very light with a faint touch of citrus, farmhouse with a kiss of grain. Mouthfeel is light, soft, watery with high, fizzy carbonation. Overall, a refreshing change.

crosamich (431) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Exactly as described, earthiness from the house plays well with the light farmhouse funk. Thin, light body on the tongue, easy drinker, refreshing.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2012
From bottle. Light tart aroma, dry and grainy. Carbonic gaseousness. Pale golden yellow straw clear with a little haze, with thin white head. Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation. Dry, chalky, light bitterness and acidity. Bitter finish with dry bitter after. Not much to this, and too bitter for the grain bill.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUN 12, 2012
750mL bottle, no date for $7.99 at Olive Tree Market in OB. Hazy straw with a 1 1/2 finger off-white head, pretty good retention. Hay and yeasty lemon up front with some cracker malt behind. Just a hint of mustiness and sulfur, white pepper. Flavor follows suit with the refreshing lemon fruity yeast notes and leather, nice light cracker malt. There also seems to be a substantial carbonic acid bite. The finish was dry with bitterness at a 1-2. Light body with soft pillowy carbonation. I feel weird saying this, but it was a delightful beer. Plan to pick up another couple bottles.

VsXsV (2140) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle. Hazy, straw/yellow with small to medium white head. The aroma is quite "farmhousey" with notes of spices, funk, citrus, wheat, bread and some banana. The taste is light and refreshing. Quite dry and light to medium bitter with minerally notes of funk and citrus. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice and refreshing but a bit bland.

ttoadee (608) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Cloudy yellow, disappearing head. Yeast in the nose(Belgian, maybe Brett) with subtle herbs. Thin, but refreshing across the tongue. Leaves with a slight hop bitterness, but mostly still yeast. I do not quite get hop aromatics from this bottle, but I still applaud the effort.
