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 offered via pepsican john grocery toss. Soft herbal musty hay. Bcrisp wet grass bitterness. Soft pear provides subtle balance to a rustic leafy herbal bitterness. More foggy wet air. Third eight ounce glass of this was best. Chuggble. Good enough for a Pete.

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Clear, slightly hazy golden coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall white head that leaves a nice lace on top. Aroma of alcohol, yeast, coriander seed, wheat, lemons, hay, grass, hops and a good light sweetness - very nice smelling! Light-bodied; Sharp hay and grassy flavour with almost no malt to speak of and a very light yeast note with only a hint of sweetness and mainly a kick of herbs and perfumey hops and a pepper note. Aftertaste is fairly bland with the grassy, hay and floral notes coming out with no malt, no alcohol and no sweetness at all. Overall, a good smelling and looking beer, but not enough depth of flavours nor complexity to make this good for the style and/or worth buying and especially worth flying back home with - even more so with the large format bottle. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Central Market in Houston, Texas on 10-August-2013 for US$6.99 sampled at home in Washington on 10-October-2013.

Bought several of these and had at various ages and just blatantly disappointed, much like other regular JK lineup. Pours a hazy pale straw color with little aroma, minimal amounts of hops and I get no farmhouse character. Flavor is also subdued, as would be expected for a "table beer" I suppose. Light malt flavor and extremely light hop character. Don’t bother with this beer...for the money, go buy some Budweiser...equally tasty and 1/5 the price.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2013
Medium white head. Clear yellow body with carbonation and some tiny particles. Fruity funky floral aroma with citric notes. Dry mealy lemony floral taste with funky notes. Light-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry strawy lemony funky aftertaste with watery notes. It’s fine, but didn’t enjoy that much. A bit watery and low on flavour. (0.75l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

Bottle. Hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is yeast and some lagerish hop aromas. Taste follows suit and adds some slight lemon notes and a seltzer like finish. Extremely dry mouthfeel. Nice neutral beer.

750ml bottle, cloudy honey gold hue, with a thick pillowy white head, mild yeasty, spritzy, lemon, grapefruit peel, citrusy nose, with some light floral leafy saaz hop, doughy, wheat, pale malt notes in the aroma follows through on a light-bodied palate with a yeasty, bready, pale, wheat malt, light flowery saaz hop freshness character, with some leafy, grassy, mild citrus peel, spicy flavours, within a watery backbone, leading towards a watery, zesty, citrusy, light lingering citrus, leafy hop bitterness finish.

Embrouille (2819) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 5, 2013
Bottled 75cl. Cracked open on a sunny day. It pours a lactic pale yellow beer with a nicely remaining chunky mountainous white head. Baguette, melon, spicy earthy hops, mandarin orange and cloves showing up in the nose which is quite inviting. Nice biscuity pale malt back. Light bodied and remarkably delicate. Dryish finish. A great choice on a hot day.

burg326 (3508) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Poured a light cloudy yellow color with aromas of light tart lemon, some light yeast, with some floral notes. Flavors are the same, light funkiness, floral and some light citrus, interesting beer, not my favorite from these guys.

750ml bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow wit medium foamy white head. Quite a lot of lacing.
Aroma : Saison yeast with light bananas. Spicy saaz hops with light citrusy notes. Nice hoppy nose with some malt. Quite aromatic with some rather expressive malts considering how small the grain bill is.
Taste : Saison yeast with citrusy and spicy hops. Some malt. Finish is spicy with light citrusy notes. Moderate bitterness.
Palate : Arrival is fairly well bodied but it gets a bit watery afterward but that was expected and is understandable to some extent. Persistent yeasty notes. Carbonation is pretty fizzy. I enjoyed it a bit more when the carbonation had time to fade a bit.
Overall : Pretty nice beer. Great aromatic nose with fairly nice taste. Finish is fairly complex.Pretty impressive overall for such a small beer. I’d tone down the carbonation a bit. I would like to see more of these low abv beers.

This pours a pale yellow-golden color with a fluffy loose white head. The first whiff shows off a musty aroma, that’s followed by earth, lemon, grass, and straw. Very nice and delicate. Light-bodied, as expected, but not thin or watery. There’s a good amount of flavor here for what this is. Gentle flavors of yeast, citrus, grass, and earthy hops. Dry and crisp. The carbonation seems spot on; active but not out of control. I’m pleasantly surprised by this is low alcohol, farmhouse brew. In the end, it is still a 2.9% beer, though. So it has it’s limitations. But I’m impressed with what Jester King has done with this one.
