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.

Hazy yellow with good, foamy, white head / Delicate, perfumey nose of lemon, tropical fruit, and straw / Watery, although this may be part and parcel of what this beer is intended to be at 2.9 abv, acidic and crisp, with good, bitter finish / Weak but excellent flavors of lemon, passion fruit, bread, and straw / Near beer? Seems like a beer in search of a market that doesn’t exist. Boost the body, and probably the abv, and this would be excellent.

Foggy golden color with white foam. Nice pine, pale wheat, coriander, citrus, straw, bready malt aromas. Medium body with average co2. Light flavors of pale malt, grass, dry spices, light fruits--good

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 Bottle, compliments of Keith with Simon and Mike. Pours a very hazy murky golden color with small to med head. Aromas of yeast, bready malt, and citrus hops. Taste is lemon citrus, yeast, spicy rye, ash, chalk, astringent grains. Very dry and aggresive on the throat. Peppery as hell. Kind of hard drinking for the 2.9 percent. Not my thing and a little pricey for me.

Bottle. Very light and refreshing. Mild taste, very balanced - but I wouldn’t mind a stronger version. Saison-like taste.

Best low ABV beer ever courtesy my July Secret Santa. Thanks! Aroma was big and full. Strong noble hops and yeast smell. Like a good saison. Pour was a beautiful hazy light yellow. Almost no color at all. Small white ring for a head. Taste was very full for a low ABV beer. Great balance of the noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Near perfect actually. Nice carbonation. Very complex beer. This beer opened my eyes to the fact that a beer can be low ABV and still be delicious. Would love to find more of these.

Trade from rougeau13 - thanks!Cloudy yellow, thin white head. Smells like freshly baked bread and lemons. Slightly watery, but kind of works here. Flavor is a rather yeasty, with some citrus notes. Nicely flavorful, and only 2.9%...

Poured from a bottle received from Errl. Thanks! Pours a hazy yellow with a fizzy white head of foam. Great retention. The aroma has a ton going on with estery notes, earthy hop profile, some malty bitterness. It reminds me a lot of what would happen if you brewed Hefeweizen that and a Saison yeast. Taste is mildly sweet and estery while keeping its verge of bitterness going throughout. This beer is actually really good. Highly recommend trying it if you get the opportunity.

Effervescent lightly hazy golden rocky white head nice lacing... Lightly citrusy light spice a little grassy aroma, fairly lively light thin body good flavor loads of flavor for the abv, fantastic all day drinker if the budget would allow...Fantastic given what it is..

750 ml bottle 7/25/12 (Whole Foods-Austin Pours a cloudy yellowish orange with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of yeast, clove, and spices. Taste of spices and nothing. In this light bodied brew I was expecting a lot of flavors but was dissapointed. It is not bad but lacking flavor.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle:   Straw in color, darker as we near the bottom of the bottle, moderate to large sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Somewhat of a barnish wheaty nose, soft grassiness, as well as very minor straw/hay.   Rather flavorful on the tongue for such a low alcohol brew.   A bit musty, barnish, with straw, hay, but moreso a wheaty aspect.   Seems fairly bright too.   Only a minor buzz given the large bottle.   Clean, flavorful, and probably a really relaxing beer when you don’t want too much or need to get back to work.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Very clean, simple, and flavorful for a table beer.   Great stuff!   Thanks for the bottle Bill!
