the beer poured a yellow color very close to a lager with the same style head.i got light hints of belgian yeast,straw,and oatmeal cookies out of the aroma.much is the same in the taste.this is definately not bad,just a little over priced at 2.99 a bottle.

750ml bottle. Clear bright lemon yellow with a massive meringue-like white head. The lacing left as the head recedes is incredible; beautiful designs covering the entire glass. Very fruity spicy nose brimming with lemons, peaches, apricots, vanilla, oranges, pepper and coriander. Taste: lemons, honey, sugar cookies, bananas, peaches and oranges. This American version of a Belgian ale has a lively carbonation , a rich creamy mouthfeel and a smooth buttery aftertaste. Absolutely delicious.

Golden color and thin head. Light on the palate with not much in the way of Belgian yeast aroma or flavor. Thin, light on the palate.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2008 Re-rating because I had this draught, which is awesome. Hazy, yellow, slightly sour farmhouse scent. Great balance, and a really cool tap handle, not that that counts for anything.

Hennepin is plainly awesome. A little pricey out of Cooperstown,NY, but hey, still a great brew that fills you up with a good belgian white tripel taste and leaves you wanting more.

pours with fair head, golden color, a little more bitter than other saisons, but still spicy and fruity.

Poured golden with a huge white head. Spicy belgian aroma, not unlike Duvel. Taste is spicy and vinuous with a somewhat bittersweet dry finish.

Fruity aroma. Dark yellow appearance. Enormous head that last a very long time. Flavor is also of fruit with malt sweetness. Light palate.

Nastey, Oiley, drain pour--I too Hope Jsquire had a bottle past its time. But the dinner was superb (beef tips on rice with sauteed pistatios, green beans and sausage--donít ask about the jello).
Now that I have written enough to qualify I hope to get the chance to rerate.

Iíve had this bottle a while, and I hope it was passed its prime. Iíll have to get another bottle to compare. The yellow color was right, and I got a thin white head, but the nose and taste were almost watery. There was a soft alcohol sense, with all the right flavors of candy sugar, doughy yeast and subtle spices, but it was just washed out. Still okay, but I expected better.
