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.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2004 Big bottle. Pours cloudy golden with great creamy head that lasts. Spicy and flowery aroma, with a hint of autumn leaves. Real bitter flavor that stays on the tongue. Dry with no sweetness. Upgraded rating after a bottle of the Cave Aged purchased at the brewery (#2939, vintage 2003). My first known aged beer, should be listed as a separate brew.

This beer is a share beer for me, in that i love to share it with non-beer drinkers. It pours like a dirty honey color. The yeast is quite citrusy for a sasion, but i still quite like it. I have converted many friends to beer using this upstate product.

I really enjoyed the apperance of this beer. There was massive carbonation and a thick creamy head that continued to grow out of the top of the glass for several minutes. It kept getting larger and larger, looking like the tip of a snow caped mountian at the end. The body was a copper-orange color. It had an aroma that contained hints of malt, spice, and yeast. It has a very nice and full mouth feel and is quite tangy. There is a muted malt taste with some citrus hop flavor and it has a slightly acidic taste as well. Quite nice.

Appearance is pale and cloudy. Smelled kinda sour with some weird chemical notes, but the flacor prooved much better than the aroma. Spicy, yeasty, citrus flavor.

A decent Saison. Not as good as the rating portrays. Golden amber color with a spicy off-white head. Spicy, malty flavor with some hops but not too much. Some citrus in the flavor as well. Fairly well-balanced. Overally not too bad. Bought this 12 oz bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

I really enjoy Hennepin and buy it whenever I can. Lovely aroma, great carbonation and a spicy, malty, hoppy flavor. Hard to believe you can get a bottle for around $5. I wish Ommegang made several more beers as I enjoy all of them.

Hazy golden amber with a white fizzy head that forms great sheets of lacing on the sides of my chalice. The aroma is quite nice with lemon, spices, and lots of yeast. The flavor is also nice, more spices (cloves and cardamon) and plenty of citrus hops. The bitterness is contained by the nice balance of light malt. A fairly dry body and a lingering finish with some acidic bite.

Light gold, looks like a lager, quite clear.Very bubbly white head. Smells quite strong, like a belgian style ale should. Smells of cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, and definitely coriander & citrus. Very tangy/sour flavor, a little metallic, citrus sting to it. Can't really taste the alcohol. Reminds me of Unibroue. Would rather drink a Chimay White or Blue really. Good beer, perhaps a little too carbonated. Nice bitter/dry finish.

bottled: They did it right! these kids at ommegang made a good tasting beer here. nice and yellow clowdy with creamy white head that was quite thick and dispitated slowly with lace. the nose on this was very impressive, if i didnt know it was from cooperstown i would have instantly thought belgium. musty wheat smell. fruity flavor with spice and citrus, wheat. very smooth on the palate and little to no aftertaste. alchohol hidden well, easier to drink then others in this class maybe because it has slightly less alcohol?? but i thouroghly enjoyed this, i think it was only 3.99 at trader joes, even a better find at that price. go get it and drink it!
