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.

SpringsLicker (3239) - 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 (910) - 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.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 Pours a medium golden body with a fizzy, white head. The aroma is some light fruits and spices with and underlying funk aroma. The flavor didn’t reflect the nose, though. Nice lemony citrus and yeast flavors that end dry and abruptly.

thegreenrooster (3463) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a nice big white head. Aroma is a nice banana and fruity mix with some clove in there. Flavor is a bit of corriander with a spicy kick at the end. Has a light bitterness as it goes down. A pleasing beer for the senses.
