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. Pours a clear light yellow color with minimal head. Citrus, lemon, bread aromas. Light, crisp, citrus, cracker flavors. Kind of interesting, very light beer, but still a good amount of flavor.

tfredvik (1118) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2013
Hazy, medium yellow body with a very small, white, frothy head that leaves some lacing. Strong, dry, crisp and acidic aroma with lemon and other citrus fruits. Also pleasant yeasty notes that I find more clean and Belgian than the bretty notes that I assumed would accompany a farmhouse yeast. In the flavours though I get some funky traces, but they’re definitely well hidden. Citrus, lemon, fruits, chalk. Very little sweetness, a quite light bitterness and some acidity. Of course very light bodied, but it works when served at 4ºC. Dry texture, moderate carbonation. A nice saison, and pretty impressive for a 2.9% ABV.

czar (4362) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
pours cloudy pale yellow-grey-ish with a nice white head, some retention and lacing. lemony and yeasty - saizohn, earthy, dill, olives, toasted wheat, pils, hint of sulfur and phenolic bananas - just a dash, some floral notes too. lively to average carbonation, light body - tad watery but eh, hint of tartness with a short yet assertive citrusy-herbal-grassy finish. balanced. quenching and nicely crafted.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
A hazed blonde gold saison with a thick frothy white head. In aroma, beautiful mix of citrus, coriander, light Brett, very nice. In mouth, a nice smooth saison, with fruity esters, light lemony notes, coriander, quaffable, very nice. Bottle from Bièropholie.

750mL bottle, pours a cloudy opaque golden orange with a small white head. Nose brings out considerable barnyard funk, some sweet fruitiness, and Belgian yeast. Flavour is very dry and funky, full of barnyard funk, hay, wheat, and very light sweetness. Very dry on the palate, with loads of barnyard funk. Highly drinkable and well-crafted. This won’t get high ratings, naturally, due to the low ABV, but this is really well done. Excellent stuff.
