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.

Yellow goldish color. Large head. Flowery aroma. Little bit of citrus flavor and kind of bubbly like champagne. Good belgian ale that seems to be more like a triple.

poured a yellowish hue with a thick white head. Had a sweet bubblegum aroma. It had a very malty taste to it with traces of lemon and banana.

Huge foamy thick yet light head. Medium wheat shade. Earthy/slightly flowery aroma. Malty and lemony with a bit of doughy flavor mixed in. A terrific bargain and a great way to introduce someone to the style.

This brew poured a large white foamy head that was long lasting. The lacing was so-so on the sides of my glass. This brew was gold in body. There was carbonation rising to the top with this brew. It had a sweet lemony aroma to it in my opinion. There was no bitterness to this brew. It was a smooth tasting brew much to my liking. To "thedm" yes, I have a buzz!!!

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew pours a large invigorated white head of finely sized bubbles. It has a Cloudy wheat yellow color with yeast and carbonation rising in it. It has a mild malty hoppy aroma. Its a bit fizzy at first, but it soon dies out. I tasted a mixture of flavors that was unique to this brew. It was a bit chewy, doughy and had a hint of something else. It became very smooth with time. The good buzz I caught afterwards keeps making me raise my rating on this brew.

I'm surprised by the maltiness of this ale. Has a terrific sweet malt flavor. Looks great in the glass, cloudy honey appearance with a great Belgian-like head of froth. Slight citrus aroma and good hop character. Also reminds me of some German beers I've had. I find this very unique as with many Belgian recreations. Nice Ale!

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2003
Saison-y and trippely, in my book, good but initially quite sweet. Alternating flavors (earth, lemon) cut the sweetness through the finish.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2007 Definately a good brew. Nice white head tops a murky blonde pour. Very citric (sweet) and flowery aroma with a hint of dough. Flowery aroma blends with the maltiness nicely. Decent brew, worth trying quite a few times.

Trtying very hard to extinguish prejudice held for absolutely no reason. not sure what it stems from other than perhaps the notion that many beers created in US that make Belgian references are just contaminated. Not so with this obviously. Good beer. Hazy piss colored. Immediate metallic tinge that struck me from the hops. Subsequently diminished, yet remained throughout - nearing the end of bottle and definitly still note it. Fruity, light bodied. Yes, I could see it as an apertif. Really quite a bit better than my rating might suggest.
