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.

Belgian yeasty, vanilla, a bit sweet, and nearly goddamn perfect. Mind you I just ran a half marathon, so most swill would taste awesome at this point

Refreshing and easy drinking saison with a deceptively stout ABV, but no arguments here. Good balance.

I realized the other day I hadn’t rated this beer. Which is nuts because it’s one of my absolute everyday favourites (not that I can get it in Ontario anymore. Thanks LCBO, you suck.) So I figured I’d hit 100 with a great beer. Pours a cloudy golden, with a couple foamy fingers of white head, that settles down to a thick sheet with lacing. It’s the smell of this beer that gets it all going. It’s that lovely Belgian yeast that Ommegang seems to have as it’s hallmark. It’s lemon and bread and cereal. Mmmmm. The taste isn’t overwhelming, yet full of flavour. Yeasty, citrus, coriander with a mild spicy/acidic bit in there. Really, really well-crafted beer.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear deep gold color, foamy head that stops when it drops to 1" and stays there; sheets of lace that slowly drop back into the drink. Taste is wheaty malt with light effervescence that gives it a delicate air. It grows smoothly through the palate, finishing with a bit of spice and a bitter edge that is mostly carbonation. Very enjoyable, a fine example of the style.

I wasn’t blown away at the opening, but I like the crispness the beer has. The color was gold like the description and it was a pretty classy Belgian Saison.

Poured into a tulip, nice thick head and head and golden color. Slight orang e/ citrus aroma. Very crisp, refreshing orange/yeast flavor. Nice summer beer.

Golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Aromas of citrus, lemon grass, wet hay, bready dough. Lightly effervescent, citrus up front, rolls into a slightly spicy dough and finishes clean with a slight lingering bitterness that is reminiscent of lemon grass. Medium light body. Very nice.
