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.

My 1st impression was, "Wow, this beer is the color of a golden retriever." A bit floaty. NIce foamy head, though I have decided all that shit does is make my nose tickle. I watch anxiously as it disipates...la la la, waiting, waiting, waiting...score! I'm not too keen on the scent, but it tastes pretty bomb. Almost food-like. Very interesting, like nothing I've ever experienced before. I'm almost confused. In a universe of repititious flavors & redundant style this one stands on it's own. Apple & Apple give it 2 thumbs up. ( :

Cloudy yellow orange with a foamy white head. Perfumed peach nose--quite nice. Medium bodied with soft buy spunky carbonation. Flavor is slightly tart and citric with a pleasingly strong note of fruit. Finish with a lingering, slightly medicinal bitterness.

Fairly rich golden color just slightly hazy with a moderate head and carbonation. Fruity and winelike aroma with the cork smell. Medium bodied and musty with apple cider and peach flavors and a background bitterness like lemon peel. Finished sweet with some alcohol aftertaste. Mellow and quite drinkable but not really all that inspiring. No date on the bottle but I've had it cellared for about a year and perhaps should have drank it sooner.

Pours a pale yellow, nice size head, fine bubbles. Sweet aroma, slight bit of citrus. Spicy and yeasty flavor, nice hop finish.

* tried it at a beer meeting with several other beers, hence I don't remember all my comments - only the ratings which I wrote down at the time.

Nice straw color with a decent white frothy head. Elegant Perfume with hints of white wine and lemon. Nice moderate to light sweet initial taste working its way down to slightly sweet. supprisingly creamy medium body. One of my favorites.

lovely! very light straw colored pour. white head that twinkles, bubbles that are a bit airy, but it looks pleasant. murky golden colored body. creamy texture. fresh baked bread, lightly floral, "light on the tongue" indeed. fantastic brew.

(bottled). Beautiful golden color, brilliantly clear. Rich malt dominates the aroma with whiffs of sour fruit, yeast, and faint green apple. Big malt leads the flavor in this medium-bodied, effervescent ale. Subdued peach flavor and a nice spice addition. Assertive hops complement a soft, lingering finish with candi-like sweetness and peppery, warming alcohol. A gem, though lacking the mustiness I love in some of the Belgians.

Farm style ale for all those farmers out there. Rich golden color with quite a bit of carbonation. Strong, strong, strong scent. Complex with a yeasty flavor. Sweetness balanced with spices and a slight fruity flavor. Great Belgian beer made in America, possibly the best made in America. God bless America.

Slightly cloudy orange color, HUGE white head, and carbination up the wazoo. Spice and honey seem to be the biggest parts of the aroma. Flavor seems to match the scent well, with a good honey taste. Some spiciness and citrus flavor as well. Nice complex beer, but yet easy to drink. This should land near the top of my favorite beers.
