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.

Nice golden body with a white foamy head. The aroma was fairly skunky hoppy and fruity). The overall effect was excellent. The taste was failry sweet with a little hoppy finish (enough to balance the brew, not to make it overly bitter). On the whole I enjoyed this beer. The other Ommegang I have had, the Three Philosophers, became much to heavy for full enjoyment, where as this was just right; drinkable to the last drop.

A nice hazy yellow to yellow-orange. Big frothy head. Nice aroma of pear and apricot. First taste is hot citrus, like grapefruit rind, then soft pears...more pears..and then some. Maybe a bit of a perfumey notes on the back end to detract from a great one.

My first Saison. Pours orangish-gold with a billowing white head. Aroma reminded me of a tripel--banana and cloves--but with more earthy tones. Flavor was like a mellowed-out tripel, with some noticeable orange notes. Good beer.

Hazy golden with a full creamy white head that lasts a long time and laces nicely. Light, pleasant aroma of fuit and a touch of hops. Spicy and tingly effervescent on the tongue. Yeasty with a hint of sweetness perfectly balanced with the hops for a crisp, dry finish. Smooth and drinkable, there is nothing here not to like. Excellent. This one goes on the regular buy list.

murky straw color with lasting head at once fizzy and creamy, aroma somewhat of a witt - bannan and clove, overripe apple and spicey, enough hop presence to offset the sweet, very champagne like qualities, I believe the first in class that I have rated.

Full gold color with scents of oranges and anise. Flavors are a mix of juicy, fruity malts balanced with a light acidity. More herbs and spices show up before the short, dry finish. Quite good.

Slightly hazy orange and gold coloring. The head was medium sized and white. Teh aroma was apples, oranges and crisp hops. Also a slight scent of barnyard. The aroma makes me think of late summer in an orchard. The taste is cider and slight oranges. It also has some barnyard and hay. An very refreshing combination. A very nice saison.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2006 Golden yellow, slight haze. Large white head, plenty of visable carbonation. Interesting aroma. I smell hops, and I get this sense of being on a farm? Is this what people call barnyard? Well, itís not bad at all. Kind of strange, but itís good. Flavor starts out just like the aroma, but quickly becomes sweet, reminds me of hard candy. The finish is like a mix of sweetness and, I want to say a hay loft. The flavor is more complex than that, but I canít say how. Itís refreshing in a unique fashion. I like this beer. I will drink this again.

I really liked the taste of this beer, very smooth, easy drinking, nice flavor. Sometimes I donít like the overpowering alcohol taste, this provides a nice change. Floral, mellow, very good. Will have again.
