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.

This beer poured out a nice golden color. It formed a nice white head with some lace on the side later on. The aroma of smelled of malts and cirtus. Good level of carbination to this beer. Due to that, the initial mouthfeel taste of it throws me off a little, but it sudsides after the next taste or so. Hides it’s alcohol content well. A very enjoyable beer.

Nice slightly sweet and citrus aroma and flavor. Has almost an earthy taste to it. Another good beer from Brewery Ommegang.

Nice frothy head with lighthints of spice and fruit in the nose. Light haziness. Flavor s light on the palate. A decent refreshing summer brew.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2009 750mL bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of banana, candy sugar, pepper. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Well, it isn’t a saison, really, just a vague Belgian-style golden ale. Sticky sweetness just won’t go away in the finish. Fairly generic aroma, and too much banana ester, but it’s not unpleasant really. I thought this used to be better. Oh well.

BananaClove in the aroma, looks pretty much like any Belgian style ale, although the flavor was less full. The hops really didn’t come out for me until the finish. Somewhat sweet.

This country ale comes as a favorable surprise. Its color is a clear golden-orange (very pretty), with a pale, fluffy head. Its aroma is fruity and slightly sour, but its flavor is a bit darker than that would suggest; fruity, but also rather nutty, with a warm finish almost like that of a good brown ale. I like this ale.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2002
A very refreshing beer. Nice creamy head that lasts and lasts. Captures one of my favorite styles very well. World class, better than regular Ommegang. But the ABV as stated seems WAY too low! This brew packs a serious punch, and I’ve been around the block and then some. I feel like I’ve been drinking whiskey. What’s in this stuff?

Reading through the comments here, I’m amused by the (apparently negative) appraisals: ’Very fizzy, acidic palate,’ ’rather musty,’should do something about the yellowish golden color,’The nose is a little like white wine, but...’ Hey, I bet Ommegang’s not sweatin’ it. I’ve tasted five or six classic saisons, and--blasphemy!--this is the best.

Davhgbrew (931) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2002
Slight floral hop aroma, light cloudy orange appearance, and white lacey head stuck around a little. Very fizzy, acidic palate. Middle is dry and fruity, and it finishes hoppy, dry, and fruity. This one reminded me flavor wise of Orval and consistancy wise of La Trappe. Nothing I would try to get my hands on again.
