Collaboration with Jester King, it’s the "sister" of Le Petit Prince; brewed at Thiriez, same recipe, different malt and hop suppliers, and different yeast.

750ml capped bottle pours a hazy golden color with a huge white head that retains quite well leaving only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light citrus with some herbal notes and earthy tones. Taste is a citrus and herbal bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, quite a tasty brew despite its low ABV. Well done.

mile (3572) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish aroma, light fruitiness and citrus, light - some herbal hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish - lightly sweetish flavor, faint fruitiness, light citrus and light - some herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish - lightly sweetish, light citrus and light - some herbal hoppyness. OK dryish and decently hopped saison. OK body beeing 2,9% Probably I would enjoy more of a "Big Princesse" with more body and %. Nice one, but just a curiosity among saisons.

RickTheRick (730) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
Une bière blonde très claire surmontée d’une mousse mince se verse dans le verre. Des arômes de fruits jaunes et de céréales s’acclimatent à une levure belge racée au nez. Tout est en délicatesse en bouche, des saveurs florales prenant un peu le dessus sur des notes céréalières. Un peu mince, mais quand même bien exécutée.

Botttle from Cave a Bulles. Pours gold with a slight white head. Light hoppy aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is light malt with some decent hop. It finishes decently bitter. Not very earthy to me. It would certainly be a very good session ale.

Ferris (8945) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle - Lots of sweet honey notes and grain. Clear gold with a decent white head. Light grains and lots of sweet light honey. Finish has a touch of bitterness. I think I like the Prince better.
