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.

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 (3213) - 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 (905) - 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.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2005
A nice, light saison with a nice spicy character on the palate. Good but not something I’m going to hunt down in 5 bars.

Crisp and light with a great drinkability. Finish is nice and dry. Always fresh and always for a great price.
