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.

Aroma is bright and flowery with a little hint of sugar. Looks yellow, cloudy, very bananna looking. Medium mouthfeel, quite carbonated (too much). Taste is bitter, hoppy up front with a very vegitative feel to it. Quite a few sour notes creep in, some stay through the finish. Leaves dry.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2006 Light gold pour with a thick head. Smells are subtle: malt and spice. The first sips are a bit watery, but you notice some spiciness. A pepper, citrus and yeasty taste. More flavor comes out as it warms. The finish is a sour grapefruit. Overall, it is a decent ale

Wow! This was just good all the way around. This was a wonderful belgian, with a deep golden coloration and off white head that last and has wonderful lacing on the glass. Almost champagne in quality.

Pours with a large white head that fades to a thin layer of white. Aroma of barnyard and cider. Flavor is buttery cider with some warm spice in the background.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2004 Big bottle. Pours cloudy golden with great creamy head that lasts. Spicy and flowery aroma, with a hint of autumn leaves. Real bitter flavor that stays on the tongue. Dry with no sweetness. Upgraded rating after a bottle of the Cave Aged purchased at the brewery (#2939, vintage 2003). My first known aged beer, should be listed as a separate brew.

This beer is a share beer for me, in that i love to share it with non-beer drinkers. It pours like a dirty honey color. The yeast is quite citrusy for a sasion, but i still quite like it. I have converted many friends to beer using this upstate product.

I really enjoyed the apperance of this beer. There was massive carbonation and a thick creamy head that continued to grow out of the top of the glass for several minutes. It kept getting larger and larger, looking like the tip of a snow caped mountian at the end. The body was a copper-orange color. It had an aroma that contained hints of malt, spice, and yeast. It has a very nice and full mouth feel and is quite tangy. There is a muted malt taste with some citrus hop flavor and it has a slightly acidic taste as well. Quite nice.

Appearance is pale and cloudy. Smelled kinda sour with some weird chemical notes, but the flacor prooved much better than the aroma. Spicy, yeasty, citrus flavor.

A decent Saison. Not as good as the rating portrays. Golden amber color with a spicy off-white head. Spicy, malty flavor with some hops but not too much. Some citrus in the flavor as well. Fairly well-balanced. Overally not too bad. Bought this 12 oz bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

I really enjoy Hennepin and buy it whenever I can. Lovely aroma, great carbonation and a spicy, malty, hoppy flavor. Hard to believe you can get a bottle for around $5. I wish Ommegang made several more beers as I enjoy all of them.
