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.

Bomber. Poured a hazy, pale yellow color with a creamy white head that slowly diminished. The aroma was hoppy , producing lemon, fruit, and flowers. The flavor came with oranges, flowers, clove, and banana. Light bodied with a comfortable bitterness. Very enjoyable.

Bottled; my first saison. Hazy golden coloring with an aroma of cloves and fruits. The flavor was mostly orange with some light spice. A very enjoyable, easy-drinking high gravity beer.

Poured from a bottle this beer is an inviting golden color... almost clear with a bold fizzy top. Nice lace is forming as I sip. Aroma is fruity, yeasty with peppery notes...reminds me of a fine wine. Flavor is an outstanding cornucopia of different fruity sweetnes with banana, lemon, apricot and plenty of peppery spice to balance. Not at all heavy with a pleasing fizzy mouthfeel. Pleasant yeasty aftertaste that invites another sip. Ommegang seems to have captured the belgian "magic" in this Saison.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2005
Hazy gold/copper. Ginormous, cream colored head settles to a small, rocky layer almost as it quickly as it formed. Aroma of musty yeast, crisp hops, light fruitiness and spices. Same flavors with a dry, yeasty finish and aftertaste. Lacing painting the glass. Medium body. Would be an excellent aperitif for sure, although 750 ml is a lot of aperitif. Very nice saison.

jefcon (1565) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2005
Pale gold, champagne-like head. Wonderful, dare I say fabulous aromas of baking bread, lemon citrus and oats. Flavors follow suit. Spicy hop bite and mild, dry finish. Orange, apricot, and apple fruits are buried in the taste. Slightly acidic, again, champagne-like tones to the beer. Carbonated, but full, palate. Great mouthfeel. A beer that gives the belgians a run for their money.

Highly competitive with Belgian triples, and it’s clearly better than some Belgians. O could easliy charge another buck or two and still be competitive.

Thanks to my friend sally for this one. Freaking huge head or pure white. Aroma was a bit malty. Doesn’t taste as good as it does fancy/elegant. I’d rather drink something else.

In the big bottle. Pours a banana colored yellow with a monstrously lage white head. Aroma has citrus, coriander and yeasty esters. Flavor is delightfully clean and tart with a fine bitterness. Good, but not awesome.
