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.

tfredvik (1361) - 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.

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.

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.

mcberko (9222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2013
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.

Summer time in liquid form. Rustic and real. CAMRA would be proud. Wish distribution was larger. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Bottle served in tulip. Pours clear to hazy blond with medium frothy white head. Aroma: English hops, pilsner malt, farmhouse yeast and slight frutiness. Taste is the same. This one has pretty low ABV, so don’t expect a lot of complexity here. Still, very interesting for a low alcohol beer. Refreshing and light. I enjoyed it.

FROM NOTES: August 9, ’12. Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a "Beer Hunter" tulip glass. A: Faint yeast esters, hint of lemon. A: Fairly hazy light orange golden colored body with a big, fluffy and creamy white head. Nice retention cap along with decent amounts of lacing. T: Follows the nose. For a beer that’s only 3%, this has a plethora of flavor. Lemon, mint, and wheat notes with faint grassy and peppery hops. Very light and refreshing while not sacrificing flavor. P: Light and crisp with a moderate but soft carbonation. O: Very drinkable. Great session Saison that is very crisp and clean but still has some great flavor.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pour on tap at GABF, slightly hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought some lemon zest, citrus, hints of grass, nice vanilla, honey in there mixing into some biscuit, bread, some earthy spice. Taste is a mix of citrus, lemon peel, hints of grass, zest and some yeast, nice earth, finishing fairly dry, slightly sweet. Solid.

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.
