COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hoppy, farmhouse style ale has a champagne like effervescence with a crisp but light on the tongue finish. Similar to the Belgian Saison style , this beer serves well as an aperitif. Hennepin has a majestic golden hue. The style is called Grisette or farm house and is considered to be in the domain of the Belgian Saisons.

750ml bottle I picked up at Brewery Ommegang in February 2003. (This review fromAugust 2003) A fine appeance, looks even better than it tasted, A luminescent gold but cloudy. It has a thick white head, even with a gentle pour. Smells spicy (ginger or coriander) and hoppy with a hint of apple. Tastes alternately sour and fruity (depending on where it’s hitting the palette) with that ginger spiciness thrown in. Quite the hoppy aftertaste but not unpleasantly so. Aftertaste really lingers. Has a foamy mouthfeel with a medium body. For such a complex ale, it is very drinkable. I would have to say this is my favorite Ommegang product I’ve tried thus far.

Poured into the official Hennepin glass that I scored at BrewFest last week. Its head clung to the sides of the glass like a southern bells damp dress on a hot Alabama day. The carbonation is steaming upward intensly. What a beautiful beer. The smells and taste are almost as good. I continued to play with the foamy head as I sat on my patio finishing the last great drop as the sun went down.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 18, 2005
Hazy golden, fluffy lasting white head. The nose held nice notes of spices, apricot, and florals, with slight hints of breadiness throughout. Light peppery hops and fuzzy fruits are intermingled with ease to create a near perfect balance. Great drinker on a warm spring day. Medium bodied, zesty carbonation, crisp, spiced fuzzy fruit finish. Good stuff...

BeerandBlues2 (10099) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2005
Pours cloudy yellow with a tiny white head. Yeast, grass and grain aromas. Spicy hop and yeast flavors with a leather end. Warm and fizzy medium palate.

swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2005
This beer looks great in the glass. A nice golden color with a full frothy head that develops a nice lace. A lot of carbonation can be seen. There is a lot of honey in the aroma maybe a little clove. The hops offer a nice floral touch to the scent. The taste is dry with some spiciness. The honey also shows up in the flavor, not much malt but a good balance of hops. The finish is sweet and unoffensive. This is a very good farmhouse ale that all should try.

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2005
UPDATED: APR 23, 2005 Hazy blonde color. Powerful almost pungent but semi-pleasant aroma of hops & fruit. Apply-raisin and bubbly dry sensation. A good introduction to the Saisons for me. Enjoyable, but more interesting than anything. [$3.99/25oz]

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - APR 9, 2005
Huge long lasting white head that easily coats the glass in full sheet of lace. The body is medium yellow and efferfesces with tiny bubbles. Rich complex aroma is earthy and floral. Sweet and acidic aspects balance out well and this becomes better as the bottle goes on.

Tejas (882) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2005
Aroma is heavy on the fruity side. So is the flavor. Lots of apple. Light and dry to the palate. Appearance alone will skew this one’s rating higher than it should be.
