What the brewers say

“Le Petit Prince is a dry, unspiced, highly attenuated table beer unique to our land in the Texas Hill Country. Naturally occurring wild yeasts impart a sense of place to this unfiltered, unpasteurized, 100 percent naturally conditioned ale.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big fruit esters of white grape, grape skin, and pear. A very mild tartness on the nose. Hints of lemons with a slight earthiness and light peppery phenols.”

Flavor: “Very well-balanced—the fermentation is the star here with some fantastic fruity flavors and a tartness that provides balance. Nice carbonation that carries well and provides a slight carbonic bite. Light and crisp in the body with some slightly sweet and tart lemon fruit notes. Finishes so dry the beer almost evaporates off the tongue.”

Overall: “Fantastic beer that provides a wonderful citrus tartness with slight pear and apple notes, balanced acidity, and mild funk. It’s very delicate yet filled with flavor, and quite amazing how they’ve balanced each of these elements—fruit, funk, dryness—in an obviously low ABV sessionable beer.”
