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.

Poured a cloudy golden amber with a fluffy white head that left lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, citrus and spices. Taste was slightly sour, with citrus and wheat.

Sampled at Stone 9th Ann. party. Much more vinious that I had expected. Very fruity on the nose and the tounge. Would definitley make a good desert beer. Good.

Pours light golden with a thin white head, mostly clear. Aroma of banana, bubble gum, honey, lots of esters with a bit of spiciness. Finish is acidic, bitter, and sour. Medium bodied with high carbonation.

Poured golden, yellow-brown, nice, thick head, lots of lace, aroma of yeast, hops, some sweetness. Flaovr is bold and vibrant, hops, malts, and nice bit of spices that remain for some time makes for an enjoyable beer.

Pours brownish yellow. Aroma had some bannana, malt, yeasty, a little spiciness. Giant white head. Tasted rich for Saison although i’ve only had 3-4 of them. I did enjoy it though.

12 oz bottle. Pours a very hazy and glowing muddy golden-orange. It has a huge fizzy white head that settles to a big pillowy froth that laces the glass. Beautiful!

The aroma is musty, earthy yeastiness with some peppery spices.

The flavor is chalky wheaty malts, musty yeast, a little almost sour fruitiness (seems a bit out of place, but mellows nicely), and a bitter and spicy dry finish. The alcohol is well hidden, but provides some nice warming. The mouthfeel is smooth and velvety with a good amount of lively carbonation.

Overall, a very nice beer. I’m still new to saisons, but this is the best I’ve had to date.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 Draught at Tyler’s in Durham, NC. To me, this beer tastes like a cross between a Belgian wit and and an abbey ale. Somewhat hazy; yellow orange color. Thin head with good lace. Nose was full of yeast, orange, spices, and alcohol. Similar flavors. Fairly strong alcohol content. Moderate carbonation. Nice beer.

Very attractive orange pour with a rocky head. Hazy (yeasty) color with obvious floaters. First aroma of yeast, second aroma was floral/spices, third aroma was alcohol. Flavors followed in line as well. VERY yeast-centric. Nice seasonal beer!

Hermès orange in color. Disappointingly mild aroma, despite a quite robust flavor akin 2 a belgian white ale hybridized w/ a plantain. Aftertaste lingers like an unwanted redheaded stepchild.
