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.

Cloudy yellow coloring. Taste is highly carbonated with some prominate spices, maybe clove. Refreshing and easy to drink, but complicated enough to really enjoy. Reminded me of a wheat beer with a little more flavor.

My first saison, and Iím very impressed. Great beer. Took about 10 minutes to fully pour this beer. A light, hazy orange/golden appearance with a huge cream colored head. Good lacing. Aroma was very yeasty, with slight alcohol and fruits. Flavor kinda bursted out. Tasted of oranges, yeast, hops. Good mouthfeel.

Nice golden color. Nice bubbles. Nice white fluffy head. Hides its alcohol almost completely, and that says a lot, seeing as how it is 7.5%. A little fruity. Overall very nice. Great artwork on the label also.

12 oz bottle. Strong yeasty aroma and taste. The body was a murky yellow, with a decent head. I didnít really go for the taste though, some strange off-flavors that seemed to hinder the taste of the brew. Perhaps a bad bottleÖ

Decent though it seemed to be lacking in malt. Light with candy sugar richness. Enjoyable but not in my opinion all that amazing.

Golden color with a big, creamy white head. Aroma of sour fruit and coriander. Tastes slightly sweet and spicy with a touch of coriander and sour oranges.

Hangover (1064) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Hazy golden color, with a lasting white head. Aroma of wheat, coriander, spice and orange. Medium bodied with active carbonation on the palette. I think the flavor falls a bit short. Has a nice spiciness, with cloves and coriander. Citrus towards the finish, which is dry, and somewhat bitter. I caught a nice blast of the alcohol however, which was unexpected, but had to mention it. Complex aroma and flavor, just perhaps a bit overdone. Still,. I would recommend giving it a try.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2010 Enormous lasting rocky white head over a pale golden, highly effervescent beer. Sweetish candi aroma, with apple notes, flowers, and a warm spiciness. Bright lemon and a touch of clove as well. There is a lot of fresh herbal grassiness along with fruity pear character. The flavour is delicious with spicy wheaty flavour, apple/pear, citrus and lingering clove. The finish has a lingering Belgian malt dryness. Itís substantially better than I remember it and a really tasty saison.

nice foggy gold appearance, frothy white head, tart fruit aroma, sweet flavor, banana, hop bitters, hint of alcohol, nice smooth rolling mouthfeel, the guntah says "very carbonated".

750mL bottle. Used half of the bottle to cook some mussels and drank the rest. Milky gold color with very nice head. Aroma is fruity, sweet, yeasty, flowery. Flavor is citrusy, some sweetness, yeast, and candi sugar. It is a nice, spicy saison made in America. We are lucky to get this beer. No itís not Fantome or DuPont but itís a great beer, especially for the price.
