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: MAR 11, 2005 New York State has a lot going for it. It is the capitial of an economic empire and the home of Brewery Ommegang. This is an excellent beer. The color is a nice cloudy medium yellow, with a beautiful long lasting head. The taste is to my tooth, dry, with a slightly sweet aftertaste.

BCAR (222) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2005
A Radiant Blond. Swirling traces of surface lace with a rim of collected effervescence. This is a great example of a well-rounded ale. Excellent flavor with a requisite body element. Finishes sweet as honey with no bad side effects.

Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2005
Almost opaque, golden/yellow, very typical of most Saisons I’ve had before. Head is light ang somewhat clingy, could use a bit more umph. Smells like moist bread, with a bit of apricot jam sweetness. Yeasty with an interesting alcohol finish which gives it sort of a lactic and creamy feel with just a bit of funk, which reminds me of a Camenbert cheeze. Nice!

Hazy golden with thin white head. spicy (mostly coriander) and fruity aroma that reminds me banana candies. Fruity and spicy flavors that leads towards a dry finish. Overall refreshing beer.

Hazy orange color, due to bottle conditioning. Thick foamy white head. Strong aroma of yeast, with some malty sweetness. Full body for such a light color. Not my favorite style, but very good quality from ommegang. Thanx to Rich, a great guy.

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.
