Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MEsquandoles on 12-03-2011

A clear and simple expression of the delicate interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink.

Bonus points for an awesome label. Poured a hazy gold with a finger of bright white head. Mild aroma of banana and light spice.

Ample carbonation and a light, creamy mouthfeel. Lots of wheat up front with a hint of fruity esters and a touch of spice on the tail end.

Full-flavored and supremely easy-drinking. Refreshing and tasty...really enjoyed this one and wish there were more like it.

Jester King Le Petit Prince

Pours a hazy straw color. Effervescent champagne like head with a lot of carbonation in the glass.
Sour grape tartness and funk in the smell.
Taste is great. A bit of funk, a touch of hops and a bunch o bubbles. Very good for 2.9% ABV. Drank the whole bottle without a buzz. This would make a great thirst quencher in the summer.

Buy again.

750ml bottle. Inbreeding, or inter-breeding, or something, inspired the profile imagery on the label, and it's a doozy.

This beer pours a hazy medium golden straw colour, with two fingers of foamy, frothy off-white head, which leaves some rats' nest lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.

It smells of mild bready, crackery grain, some edgy mineral notes, rather faint earthy yeast, a bit of sour, fruity citrus, and a subtle whiff of coriander and clove spiciness. The taste is pretty sulphuric, in low-vibe chemical tones, with a twist of metallic ore, before some wheaty, bready grain malt pokes through, alongside a decent simmering earthy spiciness, mild apple and citrus salad fruitiness, ethereal yeastiness, and somewhat bitter leafy hops. There may be a sort of un-warming from the surprisingly low ABV.

The carbonation is a tad frizzy, but keeps it on an even enough keel, the body registering on the light side of medium weight, and a little too tacky to be considered outright smooth. It finishes a bit off-dry, the wheaty grain, wafting sulphur, and so-so bitter hops actually working together to get things out the door in order.

A drinkable enough farmhouse ale, if a wee bit on the tame side, but hey, that's the original intent, right? Nice to see the counterpoint to the current tendency of bigger and stronger, where it's just not needed. Now about that creepy-ass label...

Bottle opened on 9.19.12.

A - Pours a cloudy, pale light orange with a two inch off-white head with good retention.

S - Light malt, hay, yeast.

T - A watered down saison, very subtle flavors of malt and Belgian yeast.

D - Very thin body and lots of carbonation.

O - Smells nice, but just so light there isn't much going on.

Very fine taste for such low alcohol. Farmhouse shows itself in the finish, wheat is substantive as well. Very nice summer afternoon drinking. Much head, neutral aroma, light toast. Moderate spiciness. Very light bitterness., light lemon. Smooth mouthfeel.
