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: 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.

About half an inch of white head. Amazing aroma of hops. Tastes really sweet and bitter at the same time. An excellent beer.

Wow... third beer Ive had from this cooperstown brewery and have been more and more impressed everytime. I like the unfiltered belgian style of this beer. Ive had some disappointing beers tonight but this is a saving grace to the night. Good flavor and very carbonated but worth a try. I bumped this overall rating up one point because Kevin Rezai said so.

Nice golden body with a white foamy head. The aroma was fairly skunky hoppy and fruity). The overall effect was excellent. The taste was failry sweet with a little hoppy finish (enough to balance the brew, not to make it overly bitter). On the whole I enjoyed this beer. The other Ommegang I have had, the Three Philosophers, became much to heavy for full enjoyment, where as this was just right; drinkable to the last drop.
