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.

I expected more from this Belgian style brew. Don't get me wrong, it was a decent beer though. Its cloudy with a good bitterness to it. If I want a great Belgian style, I'll stick with Unibroue.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2004 Re-rate There is something in this saison that keeps inviting me back - added a couple points. <P> 750 ml. Citrus and spice, oh so nice! The pour was a cloudy gold, with a frothy head. The yeast takes the stage in the first pass, and a peach/orange flavor carries trhu the finish. This well carbonated brew has elements of a golden belgian and elements of a witbier, but with a buttery goodness that rounds out with a medium hop profile. It is a pleasant pour, but its heavily-spiced warming characteristic takes it out of the running for a great warm weather beer.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2004
Pours very cloudy yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is very floral, fruity and spicy. Flavor is slightly sweet, slightly sour. Lots of fruit, some spice and vanilla. Hops sneak in at the finish. Very carbonated, very nice. Alcohol is medium strong and helps balance the fruit. Very well rounded. One of my new favorites!

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2004
Poured a light hazy golden yellow with a thick white head. Aroma reminded me of a barnyard (in a good kind of way). Citrus, spice, apples, on the tongue. Nice mild hop finish. A good refreshing beer.

Nose of berry and tea; applesauce and flowers as brew warms. Pours into my mighty "HAMMS" goblet a medium clover honey with golden highlights. The average frothy white head is mostly diminishing with no lacing. The brew has a fair balance teatering between tart and sweet being non-commital in both directions. Fair finish. The body is medium, creamy, and fizzy. The finish feels cloying.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Aroma is bright and flowery with a little hint of sugar. Looks yellow, cloudy, very bananna looking. Medium mouthfeel, quite carbonated (too much). Taste is bitter, hoppy up front with a very vegitative feel to it. Quite a few sour notes creep in, some stay through the finish. Leaves dry.

ampp (155) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2006 Light gold pour with a thick head. Smells are subtle: malt and spice. The first sips are a bit watery, but you notice some spiciness. A pepper, citrus and yeasty taste. More flavor comes out as it warms. The finish is a sour grapefruit. Overall, it is a decent ale

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Wow! This was just good all the way around. This was a wonderful belgian, with a deep golden coloration and off white head that last and has wonderful lacing on the glass. Almost champagne in quality.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Pours with a large white head that fades to a thin layer of white. Aroma of barnyard and cider. Flavor is buttery cider with some warm spice in the background.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2004
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.
