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.

Excellent. This is perfectly balanced Belgian ale--spritzy carbonation, fine palate and measured sweetness. One of the finest.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 12, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2003 Pours a cloudy orange, very representative of the style. Heavy carbonation with a thick head. Cirtus and yeast aroma. Flavor is lightly zesty with just the right citrus and ginger to balance out the hops. Clove and peaches are detectable here. Very rich finish with a medium body.

Very good beer. Had a nice sweet taste with hints of spice. Nice pour, nice head.

Very sparkling with a nice white head. Lots of fruit and sweets in here. Smooth to drink--spiciness hits at the end and is elevated by the level of carbonation. A little more sourness and tartness needed for the style but a great Belgian.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 2, 2003
Awesome. Pours a hazy burnished gold, with a thick white head. Hoppy aroma, with a bit of sweet maltiness and spiciness. Taste is sweet, tapering quickly to a mild hoppy bitterness. Interesting, unusual, and enigmatic spiciness. I can’t put my finger on the tastes. Possibly orange peel? Very complex, with good body carrying a smooth hop bitterness. Perfect for drunken hillbilly debauchery, working on cars, and hunting quail. Matches any insulated flannel, camaro interiors, and most all mesh hats. I’m kidding, of course.

An excellent Belgian styled ale. Pours a medium golden hue complete with very small, champagne like bubbles, and a tight foamy head. Reminscent of the strong belgian beers likes Chimay White or fellow North American brew, the Unibroue Eau Benite. Incredbly smooth tasting considering its crisp, hoppy characteristics, all of which make this a great choice for those lazy afternoons.

Thick yellow with white head. Aroma of yeast and grapefruit, with the flavors to match. Ever so slight hint of cherry in there also.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2002
Cloudy, straw colored body with a diminshing white head. No lacing. Smelled of yeast and citrus. Tasted yeasty and spicy. Very low hop presence in the taste. Very carbonated and prickly on the tongue. First saison so I don’t have much to compare it with yet...

Better than champagne for breakfast! Mix with Guinness for a ’Belgian black velvet’. Fruity, bubbly, subversively strong.

Very yellow brew. Solid white head that lasts and lasts like a duracell battery. that bunny is strong. oh ya the beer...yeasty and citrussy aroma. the flavor is very friendly, fruity citrussy hops are so wonderfully juicy. nice yeast flavor in the finish but the hops stay fruity on the tongue till you are done. very effervescent. dances across my tongue very happily. I like this beer.
