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.

Pours a clear lemon yellow colour. Thick white head that lasts. This smells more like a blonde abbey style beer than a saison. Yeasty upfront, some citrus, then bready malts. Taste has a crisp lemon note followed by soft malty flavour. Enjoyable and moreish. Really reminds me of leffe royale!

This saison almost resembles a witbier with slightly more yeasty notes and some mild lemon peel or citrus in the aroma. It pours hazy straw with a creamy head that slowly dissipates. Looks gorgeous in a chalice. The carbonation feels great and adds to the fresh taste of this beer. Thereís a bit of a grassy finish but not in a bad way. Alcohol is 7.7% yet itís barely discernible. Nice refreshing beer for the summer.

Stoned99 (1012) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2016 750ml bottle from Canada Craft club. Aroma: nose of banana, spices, fresh cereals. App: clear golden, medium white head ever lasting, lacing covering almost fully the glass. Taste and palate: medium body, light sweetness, lively carbonation, light lingering bitter and light burning alcohol finish. Overall: a great surprise. Honestly itís been waiting for 2 months in my fridge, I didnít want to drink it as I thought I wouldnít like it. Great surprise. Wasnít expecting this great banana aroma and taste. Iím not sure Iíll be able to drink this bottle all by myself because of the strong banana taste and the champagne like carbonation might be overwhelming at some point but so far I enjoy every sip of it. Really refreshing even though itís abv.

Mouthfeel is medium body, light but crisp carbonation, a nice citrus and dust coats the mouth in the aftertaste. Overall, yowza. This one is quite enjoyable.

The beer pours a hazed medium gold with a generous white cap that lasts. The aroma is barnyard funk, citrus and yeast. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is funky grains, light spices, yeast, and citrus. Pairs well with a banana for a vacation breakfast.

RCx240 (197) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
Hazy, pale golden in colour. Substantial foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of straw, banana, estery, alcohol, clove. Taste of lemon, straw, some banana, lots of fruity-estery notes. Full bodied, with a creamy, coating mouthfeel. Lively carbonation and a long, lingering finish. Really quite nice.

Draft @ Aloft BUF. Slight flowery aroma. Clear golden color with thin white head that dissipates quickly. Nice, typical saison flavor (little peppery, etc). Little lighter than med bodied. Overall, a pretty good saison.

On tap at Ten 22. Pours a golden color with a bit of head. Lots of hops overpower a little, though the farmhouse yeast flavors seem very mild anyway.
