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.

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.

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.

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.

Rather musty odor and a crisp but still malty palate. Pretty good.

Strong aroma, citrus and spices. They should do something about the yellowish golden color, bit hazy, white rocky head, fair lace. Starts off very spicy and citrus, full body, light sweet. Nice citrus, hoppy finish.

Actually my favorite of the three main stream Ommegang. A triple bier b’garde to create another name for the style. Spicy nose and flavors. I especially like the yeast character which gives it a dry finish.

Not too bad, a nice golden color and a touch sweet. The nose is a little like white wine, but it tastes pretty good, especially as a summer beer.
