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.

Solid beer from Ommegang. Nice tart taste complimented by a really nice dry finish. Carbonation is really high, which is appropriate to style. Didn’t get a lot of "belgian" esters or phenols. A very approachable saison from Ommegang (Duvel).

Beautiful pour is a bubbly dream: effervescent tangerine with a one finger champagne cap. This is a fantastic farmhouse saison & it sets the bar for the style high. I get tart candy, funky yeast, & slight spicing in each sip. The finish is brisk, with a squirt of squeezed lemon. Glad I stumbled onto this at the LCBO. I may even let Helsdon in on its location as he covets the stuff.

Bottle at home from Bottle shop Canterbury split with Sarah. Translucent yellow straw colour with a big ol’ lively white head. Aroma is nice saison yeast, wheat, camomile, orange and spices. Flavour is doughy wheat, orange , light spices. Palate is effervesceny , light and refreshing. Decent saison, not as good as some Partizan grisettes.

Stew41 (1725) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2014
As good as any US saison I’ve had in recent memory. Dry, big line of fruity spice, cinnamon, fizzy finish and good drive. Alcohol fills out the palate nicely but overall a delicate palate weight.

Tap at happy gnome. 10oz pour. Light gold with small white head. Floral but subtle, smells of a tiny bit of alcohol. Crisp saison types of flavor. Very crisp and easy to drink. Some oily mouthfeel with a lot of spice. A good go to beer.

Darwenus (535) - Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Slightly cloudy, pale golden color with a huge head. The aroma is malt and mildly sweet fruit, but the flavor is dryer and stronger than the flavor implies. Not delicate at all. Grapefruit and bananas on the front. The nearly 8% ABV is present in the flavor. The finish is bright. This ale is substantial.

Pours a yellow hue with a foamy white head. Aroma is citrus, yeast, and some farmhouse funk. Flavor is slightly sour lemon, spices, and yeast, with a sweet finish. Delicious.
