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.

Very attractive orange pour with a rocky head. Hazy (yeasty) color with obvious floaters. First aroma of yeast, second aroma was floral/spices, third aroma was alcohol. Flavors followed in line as well. VERY yeast-centric. Nice seasonal beer!

Hermès orange in color. Disappointingly mild aroma, despite a quite robust flavor akin 2 a belgian white ale hybridized w/ a plantain. Aftertaste lingers like an unwanted redheaded stepchild.

Bottle. Orange color, hazy. Yeasty aroma with coriander. Nice white frothy head. Flavor is yeasty and spicy as well. Good finish, slight alcohol in aftertaste. Delicious.

bobaidan (524) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Aroma is very much that of a wit. Fruity overtones mixed with a definate alcohol flavor. Nice smooth finish with an aftertaste of bananas. All in all an exceptional beer.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2005
Robe blonde très claire surmontée d’une mousse blanche persistente. Arômes de bananes, de clou de girofle, d’alcool et de beurre. Agrumes. Douce, mais tout à fait belge. Levure très présente.

This beer didn’t do much for me, it had a nice fruity head, Pretty, transparent yellow. Not my fav, but it’s ok.

Light color with small but very carbonated head that disapated quickley. Great smooth taste. Can’t believe it is 7.5%

My first saison, and a rather nice experience. Pours a brilliant yellow with a delicate, frothy head. Champange-like carbonation rising straight up the glass, and intense lacing make this beer rather beautiful. Aroma is a delicate floral hop aroma, kind of witbeer-ish. Taste hits very yeasty up front, spicy all the way through, with a strong alcohol kick and some nice mid breadiness, and the palate couldn’t be better. I poured this in the wrong glass though. Should’ve used my giganto-head accomidating Piraat tulip!

The hoppy fruit spice aroma didn’t carry over into a complex tasting experience. It drank too carbonated and with an evident alcohol taste. Not as good as it’s more potent brother but still a worthy drinking experience at much less of a cost than most other Belgium offerings.

rederic (3203) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2005
Hazy golden honey hue, with a big rocky white head, with good lacing, yeasty, apples and citrus fruits notes, pale malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with yeasty, hint of oakiness, fruity, earthy hops, pale malt, floral ops, leading to a hoopy citrusy leafy finish.
