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.

A nice cloudy golden color. With a nice frosty head. A little yeasty. Nice citrus taste and perhaps some bannana. Very good.

Pours a clouded blond with a medium white head. Nose is mixed with yeast, spice, light fruit hints, and possibly lighter earth tones. The taste is grains, spice, light tartness, some fruit and yeast blended together. Finishes rather well. Some spice and bitterness during the finish. Good beer!

Cloudy amber with white head and nice lacing. Complex aroma mixes fruit and spices and floral. Flavor nicely combines sweet and bitter into a very good tasting beer.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2006 Cloudy and yellow in color. Really good. Needs to age, but is good now. Spicey. Fresh and citrusy, little yeast. Excellent beer.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Cloudy deep yellow with a perfect, rocky white head. Full nose: fruity, a little yeast, citrus notes, hops, and YUM. Big malt hop balance up front followed by a slightly sour finish that is enjoyable. Excellent beer as are all Ommegang products.

pivo (2585) - GERMANY - DEC 25, 2003
Sweet mild nose, lovely gold color, huge sticky head. Man is this stuff good: smooth, creamy malty body with generous amounts of yeast and pleasant bitter end. Alcohol kick intensifies the flavor. Excellent. Truly awesome for something brewed in the US.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Very impressive indeed! Pours the color of apple cider with a decent head that leaves a respectable head and an honorable lace. I should mention here that I'm not using the "correct" glass for the style, which may account for the lack of perfection. I'm giving it extra points, though for the splended education given by reading the label on the bottle. Smells primarily of bananas, to be honest, but there's a freshness to the scent that is *really* nice. Tastes wonderfully fruity. Bananas are the strongest, but pears are follow closely behind. Considering I don't like pears normally, this really does taste good. I'm not sure hops were even used in this beer, but it tastes so good that they're not missed at all. Mouthfeel is very full and quite thick. It's well-carbonated which for this style is a great thing. Drinkability is good, but given the alcohol content, be careful. This beer snuck up on me, so to speak.

Mild sweet honey nose. Light orange color, little layer of a frothy head leaving brussels laces on the glass. Spicey but mild, orange comes through as the main taste. Medium lasting aftertaste.
