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.

Bottle, tasted in a Duvel snifter: Beautiful golden hue with a forever lasting head and outstanding lace. The aroma has notes of dusty and barnyard yeast esters, apricots, pear, aromatic hops, and sublime spice. The taste starts tangy and fruity with a lot of yeast notes throughout. Get some light almost woody characteristics midpoint followed by a bite of bitters and alcohol. Finishes with some spice and wheaty notes. The feel is lively and crisp, but lacks the depth of the great Fantôme or Pizza Port saisons. Overall it’s a good beer that does fit the style, worthy of a try. (I have had this beer many times, not much change year to year, which is a good thing)

malty, spicy, fruity aroma, cloudy golden pale color. Hmmm, a citrusy sour kind of belgian, nice foamy head, thick lacing. Pretty sweet, not very bitter.

Cloudy light caramel color with a nice white head and a fruity aroma. Creamy, fruity, citrus taste with a tangy finish. I took about an hour with this beer. As it warmed the fruity and sweet taste became more pronounced. This is a very very good beer.

Has a hazy golden color with "stuff" on the bottom and a thin white head. Smell is of citrus fruit. Taste is malty, citrus and light with a slightly crisp bitter finish. Overall an ok Belgian, but nothing special.

My favorite of the Ommegang line, as a nice golden color with a solid head that holds for quite some time. Has to be had at a little less than room temperature to get both the sweetness at the beginning and the hops and spice at the end.

This bottle looks like its been aged a bit, lots of moldy crap on the outside of the bottle, luckely the insides are still safe. Pours a perfect transparent gold with a small bubbled white head. Floral hops jump out of the aroma followed by a buttery malt and fruity smell. Taste has a sweet maltiness to it, very fruity with crisp floral/citrus hops in the finish. Tastes of yeast, sweet lemon, orange peel and spice are faint in the finish.

Cave aged---Pours a golden hue with a small white head. A romas of yeast and not much else. Flavors of light belgian yeast with a slight bitterness and a lingering finish.

Enjoyable golden Saison. Exceptional value for the price (around $4 USD for a 750ml). Spice and yeast flavor are skillfully mixed together by the brewer. I prefer drinking Hennepin in warm weather months but can be consumed anytime.

Big bottle. Pours a golden color with an orange tint. Clumpy white head. Aroma is of fruit (banana/pear) and yeast. Slight bit of alcohol. Flavor is citric with quite a bit of spice. Some pear flavor as well. Tiny bit of alcohol present.
