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.

I’m not a big fan of the style, but this is a really good one. Very low bitterness. Moderate yeast.

maekchu (3267) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2015
Bomber. Thanks to Justin. Fruity fumes, a touch smokey, mashed peaches, and coriander in the nose. Clear gold straw color. Sharp fruity initial, some deep spicing, alcohol rises up in mid palate, and some light yeast bite and bitterness in finish. Medium body, very smooth. Nice stuff. The fumes and alc flavor do intrude a bit.

Banana, pear, lemon, pepper, coriander and watercress. Light and lively. Very dry with an abrupt finish. A treat today but on a hot, humid day this is a go to thirst crusher.

demannu (333) - New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2015 Lovely golden straw color with a white head and fair lacing. Aroma of fruit and spice. Crisp and soft medium body. Flavor is very satisfying with banana, light citrus, and mild spice. Not getting much bitter though. Wouldn’t think this was a nearly 8% abv.
