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.

draught. cloudy white golden body with a small short-lasting head. aroma of yeast, cheese, spice, and apples. flavour is a bit better than the aroma and is quite thirst quenching. body is heavy on spices and the pepper sticks around in the back of your throat. I think maybe it’s lacking in overall substance. a decent saison.

Cloudy golden ale with a whipped cream head. Lemon zest and cracked black pepper. Slightly sour and acidic on the palate. Mellow but alcoholic finish with some bitter hops. Not bad at all.

AndrewM (126) - Waco (Buckle of the Bible Belt), Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Pours golden with a white white head. Head dissipates rapidly. Aroma of sweet hops. Flavor of bananas, very light on the palate. Flavor blends away rapidly to a clear aftertaste. Just a hint of alcohol in the taste. Warmth hits the belly a bit after the first few sips. Very pleasant sipping beer. Slight bittering due to the hops. Warming up, become more yeasty. Overall a decent drink, but I probably won’t be buying another 4-pack... not really my style.

pours out a dark yellow color. taste is spicy, sweet, and sort of refreshing. not the best ive had in this class, but it can hold its own against the ones from belgium. this brewery makes high class beers, and ive yet to be disappointed by one.

12oz - Aroma is funky yeast and spice, candi sugar, banana, and a touch of hops. Pours a nice cloudy orange with a steady medium head supplied by tiny bubbles from the bottom of the glass. Lacing is great too. Flavor is a bit snappy with a yeasty funk common in saisons. Sweet and sour banana and hops. Palate is crisp and tangy. Not a bad example of the style.

Sampled at Stone 9th Ann. party. Much more vinious that I had expected. Very fruity on the nose and the tounge. Would definitley make a good desert beer. Good.
