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.

Big bottle. Pours a golden color with an orange tint. Clumpy white head. Aroma is of fruit (banana/pear) and yeast. Slight bit of alcohol. Flavor is citric with quite a bit of spice. Some pear flavor as well. Tiny bit of alcohol present.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - OCT 17, 2004
A brilliant contrast of pearly white and cloudy orange/gold. The head has great staying power and nice lacing. The nose is yeasty and estery, and also reveals a subtle spiciness. Pretty mellow mix of hops and alcohol, with a bittering and dry finish. Smooth and round mouthfeel, with low to moderate effervescence. Very good, but not as complex or enjoyable as Fantome offerings. Still, I would recommend this to anyone.

mreeves (275) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Golden, cloudy brew with nice head retention. Very similar to Unibroue’s La Fin du Monde, but not quite as good in my opinion. Has a slightly "cheaper" flavor profile than La Fin du Monde. Spicy, light and refreshing. A good beer.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2004 Pours a rich, hazy, golden color with a big, foamy white head that leaves tons of elegant lace as it slowly fizzes away. This beer is very well carbonated and has a Champagne-like character to it. Aroma is sweet and lager like with notes of hops, sweet fruit, grapes, malt, and alcohol. Flavor is very crisp and again reminds me of Champagne. Initial flavor is dry and peppery with notes of alcohol and yeast, followed by a burst of sweet fruit flavors and a slightly bitter, hop filled finish. In spite of the sweetness of this beer the alcohol presence is strong throughout. Overall, this is a great substitute for Champagne and would also be perfectly suited as an apertif before a winter feast.

Another good offering from Ommegang. Had this beer while at the brewery. Lighter than the other ommegang beers with more hops flavor and a nice malted spice flavor.

zach8270 (3423) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Hazy yellow color with a big and thick white head. Spicy aroma of wheat, pepper, citrus and grass. Very peppery and yeasty flavor with a sweet taste in the middle and a sweet and yeasty aftertaste. Very crisp and refreshing.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2004 Poured a hazy honey colored yellow with a large and enchanting white head. Big bubbles all around. Aroma was of yeast, fruitiness, grasses in a blender, a few spices, etc. Flavors included all kinds of fruits, yeast, and spices. Not bad but certainly not what I was expected. Very alcoholic, to much so, especially compared to Belgian great Saisons (Blaugies, Fantome, Dupont)

Hazy orange golden appearance, rich sticky white head. Crisp and refreshing aroma of wheat, yeast, spices, wormwood and citric fruit. Orangey yeasty flavour with a strong spicy note of coriander or wormwood. Crisp citric finish with a strong yeasty note. Refreshing beer.

bottle. pours nice with head that lasts for the length of the drink. looks great, tasts very good, goes down well. A secret treasure from Hennepin (I say because of its $4.00 cost for a 750 ml bottle)

nice lemony, banana, pear, and yeasty nose; heavily carbonated and cloudy as usual; beautiful head and lacing; fruity, hoppy tart and sweet flavor; creamy, tingly alcoholic palate.
