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 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.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - OCT 17, 2004
A brilliant contrast of pearly white and cloudy orange/gold. The head has great staying power and nice lacing. The nose is yeasty and estery, and also reveals a subtle spiciness. Pretty mellow mix of hops and alcohol, with a bittering and dry finish. Smooth and round mouthfeel, with low to moderate effervescence. Very good, but not as complex or enjoyable as Fantome offerings. Still, I would recommend this to anyone.

mreeves (276) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Golden, cloudy brew with nice head retention. Very similar to Unibroue’s La Fin du Monde, but not quite as good in my opinion. Has a slightly "cheaper" flavor profile than La Fin du Monde. Spicy, light and refreshing. A good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2004 Pours a rich, hazy, golden color with a big, foamy white head that leaves tons of elegant lace as it slowly fizzes away. This beer is very well carbonated and has a Champagne-like character to it. Aroma is sweet and lager like with notes of hops, sweet fruit, grapes, malt, and alcohol. Flavor is very crisp and again reminds me of Champagne. Initial flavor is dry and peppery with notes of alcohol and yeast, followed by a burst of sweet fruit flavors and a slightly bitter, hop filled finish. In spite of the sweetness of this beer the alcohol presence is strong throughout. Overall, this is a great substitute for Champagne and would also be perfectly suited as an apertif before a winter feast.
