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 golden color with large head that lasts throughout. Very smooth for the unexpected high amount of alcohol. There is some spice flavoring that I cannot place along with citrus flavoring though thankfully the citrus does not dominate the beer. All in all a very delightful summer beer and one of my favorite relaxing beers.

Bright gold body with a tight bubbled white head. The nose draws in wheat, yeast, spices. The tongue shares that experience with the additions of white pepper and coriander. A rock solid saison.

This is WAY too boozy for the style. Sharp grain alcohol taste over some spicy and maybe some fruity and straw notes.

Dogbrick (9320) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy straw-gold color with a medium thick white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Yeast, cloves and fruit in the nose. Medium body with flavors of herbal yeast, coriander, toasty malt and citrus. The finish is fruity with a floral yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
