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.

Very light and fruity, lightly golden in color with effervescent carbonation, this one does a number on your palette, it overpowers you with complexities. Nicely spicy, and sweet...perfect for a hot summer day like today.

Not usually an ale fan, but this one is damn good. I bought this when I had money, but I am drinking it now that I am broke. It makes you feel better to drink good beer when you are poor. That way, I don't have to dip into the reserves of PBR.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2011 Pretty, pretty beer, hazy gold with a perfect carbonation, head like a white pillow. Taste is like freshly mown hay, with some nice funky barnyard flavors in the back. I think this beer has gotten funkier over the years. Perfect palate, one of my favorites. I’m quite partial to Saisons to begin with, and I consumed this one on a hot summer day. Just beautiful. I’ll stop now before I tear up. RERATE: 08/13/11 - don’t think I would get weepy over this 8 years later, but still a great beer that I enjoy.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2012 It had been a while since I had this, so I felt I needed to refresh my memory. It’s still light and flavorful as ever! Light straw color, big frothy snow white head. Wonderful complex citrus-fruity flavor and aroma. 2012 update: slight uptick on overall. I’ve been on such a Saison kick this summer, I just had to try this one again. Still very good. More spice than I remember. A very tasty, yet refreshing brew!

3fourths (8295) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2014 Murky light yellow. Magnificant head of white foam. Very floral aroma, with lemon and ginger. Light flavor of lemons and spices in a very carbonated brew. Nice to have on a summer day, similar to a wit. update 2014: Insanely sugary, smells and tastes like cake frosting :/

This beer makes me want "Freedom" fries. I see why they call this champagne-like. Fruity, needs a bit more hops to be perfect.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Medium gold with a very slight haze, and the head is not exactly spectacular. Strong butterscotch aroma does not bode well, and it follows thru on the palate, with less diacetyl in the flavor than the nose indicates, but definitely a little too much butter in this obviously aged example. Still some nice stone fruit flavor, but like other aged Ommegang beers I've tried, it's definitely over the hill. Will re-rate if I get a fresh bottle...

Nice yeast aroma with light fruit aromas of pear. Brew pours big head which is completely lasting. Flavor is nice, light fruitiness, touch of spice. Initial flavor is dry with a hop finish. Good not great Saison.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Light, zesty body topped by a thick white head. Vinous and sharp alcohol aroma. Flavor is, like the aroma, comprised of vinous fruit and sharp alcohol notes. Lively carbonation. The white wine of beers, si?

Murky yellow, honey colour. Aroma is quite yeasty, giving the flavour of this beer and nice zing to it. The flavour and a nice sweet/spicy thing going on making it nicely balanced. Lots of citrus in the finish.
