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.

Pretty good beer for the style. I can see why this is labeled a table beer. You can drink it with most anything and not stumble away from the table. It smells like pilsner malt and looks like a wheat beer. Foamy head. It tasted like a hoppy pilsner. Some citrus as well. Pretty basic and straightforward beer. The farmhouse yeast adds a sharpness that doesn’t work in every case but passes here. Worth a try.

DialSquare (2312) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2014
750ml bottle from Proof. Light yellow pour with minimal white head. Aroma of straw, lemon, little funk. Tastes are light drinkable, yeast, grass, lemon, wheat, spices. Very nice - didn’t know it was low ABV until half way through. Nothing crazy, but truly session brew. A sixer of this on the beach would be perfect.

foxo82 (649) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe at least a year ago. Cloudy yellow. Small head. Smooth feel. I still don’t ’get’ saisons - this one is much like the others I’ve had: fruity and inviting in the aroma but lacking any duration to the taste. Like a watered down Belgian wit.

drjay44 (2482) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2014
750 ml. capped bottle. Batch #9/10 MAR 2013. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a very slightly hazy yellow (SRM 2) body.....nose is cereal, with light toasted malts, minimal esters, light hops dusty tones.....taste is light dried malts, with cereal, bread, light spice tones, finishing lightly bitter....mouth fee, light body, moderate acid. This is an incredibly light beer, with hints of Saison intermixed with Kolsch, Pale Lager. There is little complexity in any sense. It would be grand as a re-hydration beverage but really isn’t a Saison. It is also a year old and who knows how much was lost in that time? . BJCP 6/2/10/3/5

jkwalking05 (3501) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2014
750 mL bottle. Pale gold in color with a decent sized white head. Aroma is of hay, straw, heavy lemon, grain, and light florals. Taste is of grain, hay, and lemon. Crisp and refreshing.

rbrazell (1452) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle from Proof. Hazy straw pour with a rocky white head. Bready, lemon citrus and yeasty aromas. Palate is super light and airy leaning on flavors of lemon, bready and cereal malts with touches of spice and yeast. Not bad. Very refreshing.

unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Hazy straw yellow. Low white head. Fresh acidulated malt aroma. Nice tones of pepper, mild spices citrus zest, and something mineralic. Light and easy on the palate. Supercrisp, dry restrained malt body. Nice citrus fruity acidity. Spicy, acidulous fruity hoppy ending.

jcnielsen (1715) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2014
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.
