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.

The hoppy fruit spice aroma didnít carry over into a complex tasting experience. It drank too carbonated and with an evident alcohol taste. Not as good as itís more potent brother but still a worthy drinking experience at much less of a cost than most other Belgium offerings.

Hazy golden honey hue, with a big rocky white head, with good lacing, yeasty, apples and citrus fruits notes, pale malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with yeasty, hint of oakiness, fruity, earthy hops, pale malt, floral ops, leading to a hoopy citrusy leafy finish.

Deliciousness. From a bottle. Vanilla and lemon overtones. Much better than other "Belgian" style beers Iíve had recently, and more palatable. Darling little sayings on the bottle, really. Their label is like Celestial Seasonings for beer drinkers.

Poured from a bottle. Orange beer with a very thick white head. The cork popped off violently. Musky aroma with a hint of sour fruit. Shour citruisy flavor with a slightly sweet finish. Very interesting beer.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2011 I have only a limited familiarity with this brewer but have been getting into them a bit recently. Sampled this one on draft at the State College beer festival. It poured a medium golden color with a large creamy off white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity. The flavor is yeasty, bready and has a sour tang of light fruits. There is a nice Belgian candy sugar element coursing through this beer. I think I will definitely be having this one again.

On draught at McGradyís, a nice lemony and pepper aroma. Nice dark golden color with a foamy white head. Taste was good seemed heavily yeasted to me, hints of pepper and lemon and a tad of hops to it. Palate was full and clean finish was easy. Overall good, goes great with dinner.

Hazy yellow color. Big foamy white head and some good lacing. Bubble action inside the glass continued thoughout the beer. Had a bitter hop aroma at first. The last gulp of this one I put the nose in it and it smeeled like barnyard piss. Decent flavor mixture of hops and sweetness. Easy drinking beer. Good thing no nasty aftertaste with that crapy aroma in the empty glass.

JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Cloudy and golden pour. Some great head with champaine like bubbling. Nice lacing too. Aroma was small compared to the beer, but there was a hint of pepper and lemon. Tastes so good. Hops do come through in this one for sure, but there is also the lemon pepper that was apparent in the nose. Nice amount of yeast too. Medium bodied. Great mouthfeel, almost tickles the palate with all of the spice and bubbles. Alcohol is noticable from the beginning of the sip till the end, but is never overbearing. Nice bite. Was expecting more funk, but I like it.

Ughsmash (7505) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Cloudy golden pour with a small dense head and a decent amount of sediment. Aroma had pepper, banana, and cloves, and carried a barnlike mustiness. Very carbonated and light on the palate. Flavor had banana, pepper, some citrus, and bread. Alcohol came through a little on the finish. Decently balanced, but Iím partial to Dupont over this.
