Notes / Commercial Description:

Bottle Pours golden. A bit cloudy. Aroma is a bit musty, grainy, grassy, and yeasty. It is very soft. I really need to dig my nose in there. It smells nice and you need to respect that they are going for a super mellow brew. It's flavor is something to be admired when in the right mood. A marriage of rustic flavors that preach balance. I often find table beers to be really cool. This one grabbed my attention with it;s attention to detail within it's delicateness. I'd like to drink this light bodied brew as my first beer of the night sometime.

750 ml bottle, Batch #17 - 10.06.2015. My first beer from Jester King Brewery, acquired a bottle from the local beer shop, as they got in a small sample shipment of Jester King beers. "Farmhouse Table Beer" 2.90% abv.

Poured into a Duvel tulip snifter.

A - Pours a beautiful cloudy golden body. About a finger of white head that leaves good spotty lacing behind.

S - A pleasant and intriguing aroma - lots of farmhouse yeast & souring bacteria. Notes of grass, lemons, hay, wheat. Invokes a true sense of place / terroir - I can almost imagine the Texas Hill Country before me.

T - Taste follows the nose: lots of earthy, grassy, hay, wheat, farmhouse yeast, and earthy bacterial flavor. So much flavor for such a low abv beer. The aroma makes it seem like it would be much more sour than it actually is. Subtle notes of stone fruits.

M - Very smooth, crisp, & clean. Extremely easy-drinking & light-bodied.

Overall, a very unique and interesting first beer to me from Jester King. I look forward to trying many more beers from this brewery.

Jester King Le Petit Prince Farmhouse Table Beer -----4/5.

L: Bright gold and completely see through, decent head with no lacing.
S: Straightforward, a bit reminiscent of a Hefeweizen with Brett - very nice
T: For a extremely sessionable Farmhouse, the taste is muted but intentionally so. The fruitiness of the brett shines through and some citrus.
F: The finish is rather bland but really hard to expect more from a 2.9%ABV wild Farmhouse.
O: Perfect with spicy food or as "Table Beer." I think it really does justice to what old Belgian table beer was like and is perfect for a day at the pool, or with dinner!
