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.

Enjoyed the fresh fruity aroma. Poured with a bubbly head that was a little quick to disappear. Carbonated a little too much for my liking but a spritsy flavor that lasts indefinetly.

Golden beer with a little murkiness to it.Big white whipped cream head.Citrus nose with a little musky tinge. Crisp bite on the tongue with huge carbonation. Some banana in the flavor. This style has me just plain confused.

Slight hint of citrus, however something slightly unsettling in the flavor.

cloudy yellow like a talcum dusted lemon, clean white head smooth enough to be a button down business shirt. bubbles are audible, tho i’d reccommend not putting your ear to the glass in public. nose of fine fresh sawdust, english muffin with marmalade, alcohol and a daisy dominated wildflower bouquet. citrus taste; even bitterness to sweetness ratio, both moderate. cleansing (especially on those hard to reach back molars) and tartly tasty.

750 ml. Delectible aroma, lots of sour green apple, candy sugar, and white grape. Fizzy mouthfeel, but it improves by the glass. Good spice, and a tart, dry and hoppy finish. Great burps from this one. My rating might be artificially high since I haven’t had too many saisons, but I really enjoyed this one, and only ~$4 for a bottle.

Very refreshing. Crisp and acidic, with a dose of apple and candi sugar. Hops are here for balance only. A wonderful brew.

I enjoyed this Hennepin more than Ommegang ale. Better aroma, better flavor. Quite fruity. A pleasant surprise.

Pale and not too heavy but has plenty of flavor. Nice head, golden and cloudy.
