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.

Zarf (19) - Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2014
A wonderfully hoppy nose, yet much more subtle on the palate. Light and effervescent, yet stands up to spicy foods, providing a great complement. An instant favourite! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
