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.

Nice yeasty, light Belgiann ale. Golden pale color with a diminishing but lasting head. Good taste, soft malts with a nice edge. Longder finish than you'd expect for such a moderately flavored beer.

WabashMan (1017) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 18, 2003
Very cloudy golden color with generous SLIGHTLY off white head. Aroma is nice, and not overpowering. Flavor is really quite nice as well. Good balance and depth...slightly spicy. A nice saison.

Dorwart (2432) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2003
Don Ho would love this brew. Lots of "Tiny Bubbles". Decent "carbonated" head form the pour. Huge carbonation throughout. Slight wheat and lemon aroma. Light gold in color which kind of glows in the correct light. Clean, crisp taste which some slight wheat overtones with a touch of hops and alcohol. Finish is slightly dry with more hops presence but not overdone. A good brew for summertime drinking when it is hot out and you need something to quench the thirst.

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2003
Very pale in color, huge carbonation with great big white foamy head. Aroma of yeast, wheat and light spice. Smooth tasting and dry on the palate. Has a hops finish, not like an IPA, more subtle. Nice spice flavor that I cannot really pin down. Although I am not overly fond of this style, this is very good.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2003 Pours a hazy golden color with a fuzzy white head. Aroma of fruits, apples and some citrus. Flavors similar to a white beer, with the fruit and spices. Very refreshing and clean.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2006 [re-rate - cloudy yellow-peach color, with frothy white head - aroma is very spicy, with lots of citrus and a gentle maltiness - malty body - a little acidic and off-balance - overall, not nearly as bad as my first rating - a little too bitter] A very dry, thin-flavored beer that tastes somewhat like grapes. The mouthfeel is full of carbonation. Golden body, foamy head.

notalush (5328) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 [over the years, this has become one of my go-to saisons - much cheaper than dupont, but not as good - I’ll buy this when I don’t want to shell out for that beer - for the money, this is the best saison you can buy] A very subtle beer, with a crisp, champaign-like character. Medium-dry and highly carbonated. Notes of apples and pears, with some spice in the back. Clean, slightly alcoholic finish that isn’t very memorable. A decent beer for the style.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 Hazy golden color, very bubbly, big lasting beige head. Aroma of yeast and citrus. Flavor of malt, citrus, spices and hops. Crisp and dry.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2003
Pours a cloudy yellow color, nice fizzy white head that doesn't last. Flowery, spicy and fruity aromas, fruity, yeasty spicy wheaty flavors. Light to medium boby, smooth with no bitterness, finishes light, crisp and dry, pretty damn good.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Hazy lemon orange colour, a bit more orange than the Rare vos. . . spicy with more the hops sitting on top of the malty fruits. Amazingly smooth and warming on a cold snowy night.
