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.

Medium copper colour with a large white head. Nice carbonation. Hoppy floral nose. Mildly hopped, spicy, slightly malted body. Some yeastiness and some fruitiness. Light and refreshing.

An enjoyable saison, a style that I am recently starting to enjoy and getting to know intimately. The cork flew across the room and bounced off the ceiling. Slight head, sweet fruity flavor. Very easy to drink.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Pale yellowish color. Fresh, floral,citrusy nose, quite like a witbier.Very beautiful, very inviting, who could refuse a sip of a brew so friendly?Taste is extremely satisfying, if lacking depth, but then, like many pretty things, it’s not meant to be deep, just delicious, d’lightful, d’lovely!

jb (2058) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2004
UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Had the big bottle with the cork, not much of a pop. Hazy as it’s bottle-conditioned. Wasn’t sure what the big deal was. Pale color, light wheat taste. Nice effervescence and light fruit in the finish, but overall disappointing. 4/27/13 what was I thinking in2004? This is pretty tasty. Nice yeasty effects.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - AUG 11, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 750 ml. big ’ole brown Belgian-style bottle. Corked and caged. No freshness date seen anywhere. Very loud pop when opened. Poured out a hazy, cloudy, light golden yellow color, with a massive white, meringue like head at first. It faded back to a yeasty, frothy island floating on the beer itself. Served in my Chimay chalice for proper evaluation. Aromas are of yeasty bread, wheat malts, slight roastiness also. Some citrus evident in the nose, more of a pomelo than a real grapefruit. Fruity aromas abound, with cherries, cantaloupe, and honeydew melon aromas intertwining. Tastes are of farm fresh fruits, melons and citrus mostly. Rich and creamy mouthfeel. Very effervescent, almost champagne like in the nature of it’s carbonation. Slightly tart, crisp, and bitter in the finish. Well balanced. Not one thing stands out above the others here. I’d like to be able to age a bottle of this for 5 years and see what it turns into. I’ll wager it would be fantastic. A top notch effort from the professional brewers at Ommegang. Good show!
