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.

Wow this beer is definitely true to the Beligian style. It has a nice fruity pallette, hints of bananna and apple perphaps. Very similar taste to Chimay white and Duvel.

First half a glass wasn't too bad, but it got hard to drink after a while. Alcohol bite to it, with a overly carbonated head and not much body. I'm not really a fan of this one.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2003 Aroma is very nice with some citrus fruit coming out. Merky yellow/orange color with moderate head. Flavor is orange, peach, and apricot. Some alcohol is noticeable but not overpowering. Slight spice and alcohol finish. Good beer.

This seems to be true to the style, medium bodied with lots going on in the flavor dept. The spice presence is not my favorite but is not so strong to totally ruin this for me as in some other brews that use clove.

Bronze bodied with foamish head--this was quite a complex, yeasty brew with the tastes developing and unraveling in waves. First, bubble gum is apparent in the aroma and flavor, later banana--then distinct notes of white grapes. A great, earthy beer for the beach.

This did not impress me much at all. Very similar to Duvel for me, and that is not a beer that I rave over.

A nice dark golden color that poured with a 1 finger, bubbly yet almost frothy, head. The aroma is slighly citrus with a touch of floral notes. The flavor is floral and earthy with some corriander and clove. I can taste the alcohol with great spices.

Oristo (67) - Orinda, California, USA - FEB 18, 2003
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 (1020) - 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.

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.
