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.

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.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2004
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.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - FEB 16, 2004
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!

The first pour is a clear, glowing deep golden amber. The second pour turns cloudy and darker. The head is massive and stiff. It fades slowly and leaves a thick sheet on the sides of the glass. Beautiful beer. Orange and cloves on the aroma. Very bright and happy. The taste is also very bright and spicy. Fruity esters meld nicely with the orange flavor and a nice straw and caramel malt. A slight bitterness lingers in the finish. Excellent.

(Cave-aged 2000 version) Clear yellow, orange shine. Thick, stable luxurious white head. Orangey, spicey, but biscuity nose. Serious signs of oxidation. Taste of oxidation too. Malty taste, crystal and pale; citrussy flavour retronasal. Well-bodied. Alcohol very apparent, compared to the very light Hennepin. Yes, this IS better than what I had sofar from Ommegang. But the oxidation is not going to be everybody's choice. Remains to be seen what would be normal ageing, and what is due to the 'cave'...

This cloudy, honey-gold beer has a bright, white head. The nose is yeasty with loads of heavy, sweet malt and light undertones of citrus hops. A slight touch of mustiness as it warms. The palate is medium-bodied with warm bread, soft fruits and light spice. The finish is once again yeasty, but semi-sweet with velvety malt and old lemons.
