A potent saison. Great after taste and a full hoppy flavor. Good color, a good choice if your looking for your first saison.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma or grass, hay, honey and lemons. Cloudy pour. Average head with good lacing. Taste average at most. Not the best judge of Saisons though as it is my first.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear yellow color with a farmhouse happy aroma. Taste is of grass and hay straight from a European farmhouse. This beer had the typical saison taste with a slight bitter hop aftertaste. The alcohol content was well hidden.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
So this is a real Belgian ale, brewed and bottled in Belgium and imported in Cooperstown, NY. They aren’t calling it Ommegang on this bottle, just Hennepin. Gorgeous cloudy, golden pour with huge, creamy, white head and champagne bubbles. Nose of lemon, nutty yeast, and wheat. Nice flavor, fruity and refreshing, light bitterness. Clean palate, with a light body and lively carbonation. This is a well made beer, a good deal for a Belgian saison ($7.99 for a 750 ml bottle).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a frothy white head & a champagne effervescents. Aroma of spicy Belgian yeast, citrus, lemon and a sweet malty wheaty aroma in the background. Taste is crisp lemon citrus, other sweet fruits, spicy peppery yeast with a nice clean dry finish. Excellent saison that’s easy to drink in a warm day or a nice winter evening.

Okay. I would probably like it better if I likes saisons, but not one of my favorites.
