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.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2005 On tap at Three Needs in Burlington. Hazy light orange color with a medium white head. Very good aroma of coriander, orange peel, fruits, hay, bubble gum and yeast. Very good flavor of coriander, orange peel, hay, bubble gum, fruits and yeast.The body is full with a creamy texture. Excellent and complex.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2005
Pours a hazy orange tinted straw yellow color, that is topped by a frothy large bubbled head that starts out a good 4 inches thick. The aroma is spritzy with notes of lemon, coriander, ginger, slight herbalness, a certain damp wood-like mustiness. The aroma is quite light and appetizing, and has a nice level of complexity to it.

The taste is lightly sweet up front through the middle, but then becomes quite dry in the finish. This is nice and spicy with competing notes of pepper, ginger, lemon zest, coriander. This beer has a nice soft sweet grain character which mixes quite well with, and in fact even accentuates, the refreshing, cool citrus notes. This beer is very good, it is just about the perfect beer to sit down and enjoy over an evening. The one flaw is that it is perhaps a little to thick in the body, don’t get me wrong, it is by no means thick, it is just that I like my farmhouse ales with a nice dry, light palate. I had forgotton how tasty this beer was, and at $3.00 for a 750ml it is a steal.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2005
Hazy golden color and a thin head. Aroma is a hoppy sweet bitterness and a grassy malt sense as well. Flavor is very acidic, sweet, malty blend. There is a strong lemon and clove feeling behind the acidic sense of it. I’m not a huge fan of Saisons, but this is a pretty good brew.

bottle...moderately hazy pale yellow pour with a generous white head. I have a bottle of the cave conditioned sitting in my basement, but I figured I should rate the "regular" version before. Spicy aroma, banana, clove, typical belgian aromas. Nice yeastly flavors, high carbonation, spicy, banana. This is a very nice job done by Ommegang. My brother and I visited the brewery this past fall and enjoyed a sample of hennepin, however I like the bottle conditioned sample better. This is a quality brew.

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2005
I am quite suprised that this beer isn’t rated much higher than it is. Gorgeous lacing in the glass. NIce pale straw yellow with a thick head. A little bit of Belgian spiciness in the nose but some hops there too. Evervescent and lots of intricate flavors. Some maltiness capitalized and accentuated by the sugar-sweet tastiness. Hops are present. Well-balanced and beautiful.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - JAN 16, 2005
75cl bottle. Golden with largewhite head. Spicy ginger and banana sort of aroma. Lovely combo of spice, hops, yeast. Spicy beer. Combo of ginger bite, hop bitterness, and yeast give it a hot feel at the back of the tongue that I don’t care much for. OVerall, this is a peppery little freaky beer.
