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.

TAR (2802) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 Pale gold. Big-bubbled but well-sustained fluffy white head. Attractive nose of white peach, lemongrass, uncured hay, gum, flowery hops and some peppery phenol. Hint of plaster, mineral, Dupontlike sulfur, gooseberry, and lactic acid. Gentle pinpricks of carbonation. Highly invigorating with a well-rounded lemony tartness to open things up. Complementary surge of ripe, well-detailed haylike pils malt provides a reasonably sturdy base as delicate breaths of soft lilac gracefully poke through. Elegantly weightless malt, yet fairly textural with a pleasant grassiness. Wheatlike twang augments drinkability as does a slippery melonlike dimension. Lactic acid nestles snugly into the palate, firming up the highly mineralic body. Remarkably light in body, yet far from frail or empty. Conversely, things are brightly flavorsome, with a healthy dose of hop-derived nectar and well-extracted malt aiding the light frame as they supply the body with much-needed depth. Finishes with a lactic acid snap which gently curbs the semi-starchy pils malt. Tasty medley of grassy and floral hops lingers. Up until now, the three JK beers I have sampled have been emphatic duds. But I’ll be darned if this isn’t a pretty nice one. Could still use a bit more pils depth to offset the tangy wheat and acid malt, as well as some ramped up hop bitterness, which is pretty much nonexistent. And it does lack some of the rustic charm and estery sophistication of the greats like De la Senne Zinnebir, Taras Boulba, De Ranke XX Bitter, etc. But as this is my favorite style of beer to drink, hands down, one might say this is a step toward redemption. Any brewery that can brew a clean and sessionable beer from noble hops and light-colored grains gets a thumbs up from me! A pleasant saison.

Al club de tast de l’Olut. Fresca, cal prendre-se-la ràpidament perquè els aromes desapareixen de pressa.

Bottle from chucks hip shop. Crisp and clear with a large head after opening. Almost champagne like. Yeast is very nice and peppery and slightly tart. Quite refreshing and the low alcohol makes this a very good example of farmhouse style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
