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.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Pours a clouded hay colored. Nice fluffy white head. Nose is yeast, spice, and fruit. I was surprised at the light tartness, not sure if I completely enjoyed it. I have to try this one again.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Poured pale opaque orange, a kind of golden wheat color. Aroma was yeast and lemon. Taste was also yeasty and lemon with a sour "bite" to it. Almost a tart or "puckery" taste, not so much to my liking.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Nice pale, bright yellow color with a bright white, persistent head. Only moderately spicy with some degree of sourness. Refreshing, deceivingly light with an alcohol kick.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2004
Pale golden yellow colour, slightly cloudy with a thick lively frothy white head. Aroma is fruity (cherry and blackberry) and spicy (cloves). Mostly sweet fruity cherry flavours with lightly acidic undertone. Dryish and refreshing mouthfeel.

tomxcs (320) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 8, 2004
A vinous aroma; fruity but also kind of sour, like cherries. Golden color with a fluffy, white, lasting head. Malts & spices & other flavors that I could not put my finger on. Lots of carbonation. Not excellent, but I got a great deal on the bottle, so I’m satisfied.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Very balanced Belgian ale with moderate sweetness, some maltiness, spices, hops bitterness and a slightly sour flavor; Palate is expansively carbonated, medium bodied and somewhat sticky, but not cloyingly so; The aroma is both sweet and sour, with some spiciness going on; Pale yellow in color and somewhat cloudy; Small sediment is suspended in the beer; Good sized head on the pour with decent retention and some lacing

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Bottle: Pours to a hazy yellow/gold with a large white frothy head that is mostly lasting. Nice lacing around the glass. Aroma: yeast, bananas, citrus crisp, wood?, clove. Flavor: slight yeast that is not overpowering, alcohol taste needs to be better hidden, spicey, pepper. Lingering aftertaste that is like a bland, mild version of the beer itself. I expected this to be better.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Pours a pale orange with some yeast and a white ring with some lacing. Aroma is mild with spices and citrus and vanilla. Flavor has a bit of an alcohol bite to it that overpowers some of the other flavors; I detect some citrus flavor and spices and maybe a little yeast. Feels rather average in the mouth. Overall, I expected better. This beer is hurt by the ridiculous alcohol taste for such a low-alcohol beer.

tpoid (25) - Boynton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Had the pleasure to sample ommegang at the brewery. They do not carbonate the beer, bottle aged. Do not drink this beer cold, it is best at the temperature of a basement or cellar. Treat it like a wine when storing as it will continue to age if not refrigerated.Nice golden color, pleasant aroma. This beer has some kick.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2006 Mild, spicy, malty, fruity aroma with some vanilla also noticeable. Clear straw colour with nice white diminishing head. Malt, spice and yeast argue it out with no clear winner declared. Spicy, prickly carbonation. Delicious on the tongue and lively in the mouth. Very clean and well brewed and an absolute pleasure to drink. Bottle (at TapNY festival). Score adjusted slightly after multiple resamplings.
