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.

Very sparkling with a nice white head. Lots of fruit and sweets in here. Smooth to drink--spiciness hits at the end and is elevated by the level of carbonation. A little more sourness and tartness needed for the style but a great Belgian.

Awesome. Pours a hazy burnished gold, with a thick white head. Hoppy aroma, with a bit of sweet maltiness and spiciness. Taste is sweet, tapering quickly to a mild hoppy bitterness. Interesting, unusual, and enigmatic spiciness. I can’t put my finger on the tastes. Possibly orange peel? Very complex, with good body carrying a smooth hop bitterness. Perfect for drunken hillbilly debauchery, working on cars, and hunting quail. Matches any insulated flannel, camaro interiors, and most all mesh hats. I’m kidding, of course.

An excellent Belgian styled ale. Pours a medium golden hue complete with very small, champagne like bubbles, and a tight foamy head. Reminscent of the strong belgian beers likes Chimay White or fellow North American brew, the Unibroue Eau Benite. Incredbly smooth tasting considering its crisp, hoppy characteristics, all of which make this a great choice for those lazy afternoons.

Thick yellow with white head. Aroma of yeast and grapefruit, with the flavors to match. Ever so slight hint of cherry in there also.

Cloudy, straw colored body with a diminshing white head. No lacing. Smelled of yeast and citrus. Tasted yeasty and spicy. Very low hop presence in the taste. Very carbonated and prickly on the tongue. First saison so I don’t have much to compare it with yet...

Better than champagne for breakfast! Mix with Guinness for a ’Belgian black velvet’. Fruity, bubbly, subversively strong.

Very yellow brew. Solid white head that lasts and lasts like a duracell battery. that bunny is strong. oh ya the beer...yeasty and citrussy aroma. the flavor is very friendly, fruity citrussy hops are so wonderfully juicy. nice yeast flavor in the finish but the hops stay fruity on the tongue till you are done. very effervescent. dances across my tongue very happily. I like this beer.

Cloudy yellow with white head. Fruity (mostly citrus), spicy and slightly sweet, but with yeast sourness very present as well.

Hazy yellow appearance. Slightly tartish aroma - citrusy and yeasty. Bosy is spritzy, sweet, fruity and overly yeasty. Not bad, could do with less yeast.

Damn this was good. At first, I thought of Bell’s Oberon... it had the same sweet feel, taste, and aroma... but the Belgian style kicked in and made it a more fulfilling beer. Excellent choice.
