Le Petit Prince is as simple as can be -- unfiltered well water from the Trinity, a small amount of Texas-grown barley and wheat (1.022 OG), and a substantial dose of Saaz hops relative to the size of the beer. We ferment with our mixed culture in stainless steel for a few weeks, dry hop, and bottle/keg condition.
Le Petit Prince presents bone dry, bitter, minerally and effervescent, without any hint of acidity. It's about as quenching as beer can be in our opinion. Directly inspired by Dupont Avril, this is our interpretation of what an old-world inspired farmhouse ale should be.
