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.

750ml brown bottle. Pour is yellow, some haze. Small white cap. Nose has sweet citrus, bit of pineapple. Taste, dry malts, straw, late citrus. Finishes with grass and mineraly yeast notes. Light bodied, decenty carbonated. Probably would not drink this often, but nice to see a well made low alcohol beer.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2017 Botella compartida en Club de Cata Olut. Poco alcohol, creiamos que tenia un poco más, y poquita amargor.

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

Pours a light straw gold with a foamy white head. It has a light grain and biscuit aroma with a flavor of bready yeast and a light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Poured into a tulip. 3.75 A: Well hazed yellow brown color. Big pillowy off-white head. Retention is good and a decent amount of lacing is left. 3.75 S: Grainy herbalness, flowers, dry woodiness. Grassy, hay, a touch of lemon, and earthy hoppiness. 4.0 T: Like the nose, but better. Layers of herbs and flowers. Woody with grass and hay. Earthy hops, lemon peel, and maybe a hint of apple. 3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess and super smooth. 3.75 D: Tasty and super drinkable. ★ 520 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 13, 2013

2013 bottle drunk 4/7/15
THANK GOD, not oxidized. After two severely and unexplainedly oxidized bottles, this one finally has no signs of it (leave it to the delicately noble-hopped, ultra low abv beer to be the one that isn’t oxidized, haha).
Clear (bottles having sat cold for a long time) golden liquid has a small amount of bubbles rising to create a medium-sized white head that recedes rapidly to cover.
Lovely noble hops in the nose showcase meyer lemons, dry grass, light thyme and a touch of lime. That this low gravity of a beer has such a clean, clear, strong nose at 18-20 months is pretty incredible, I can only imagine what this must have smelled like fresh (and will hopefully find out soon, once I get more). Light yeast esters give a fresh plaster-like note which is distinctive and very intriguing/enjoyable.
Lemons, spongecake, fresh herbs and grassy hoppiness all combine in the flavor, with an almost brett-like zestiness from the yeast sitting in the background. Absolutely flawlessly clean and perfectly extracted malt. Not a touch of hop or yeast dirtiness, no doughiness and most importantly, no astringency/malt tannin, which at this low of a gravity, is a very impressive feat. Reminds me quite a bit of Batch 1 Redemption; one of my all time favorites. While this one is a bit more mild, even, than that one, it’s still incredible. Can’t get enough of the combination of hop and yeast phenols on the finish. Light body, but not thin (or more watery than it should be for its size). Carbonation is ample and tight. Hop bitterness is gracefully low throughout; something I can really get behind (perhaps that’s just preference but I’ll take this any day over XX bitter or Guineu Riner and the like)
As an after-note, even the bottom of the bottle with a bit more yeast inevitably mixed in, tastes amazing. If this is the only good bottle of the 10 I have, I’ll be happy enough (and will certainly be trading for fresh bottles of this).
