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 pale straw colour with a modest white head. Aroma is of grainy bread, fruit and bubble gum. A little mustiness in the nose that isn’t unappealing. Taste follows the nose with bready malt , fruit, a slight tartness, and light spiciness maybe ginger?mouthfeel was quite dry with high carbonation but rich and silky almost soapy how I like it. Overall a delicious beer I would happily drink all summer.

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.

From notes (Aug 2015). Effervescent, spicy, clean, and refreshing. It was a really good palate cleanser on a hot August day.

Originally rated on 7/17/08. Upon pouring a huge white foamy head that lasted longer than the beer, a very cloudy orangish- yellow fully carbonated body. Aroma was a little fruity, malty and mild spice. Flavor was similar but with a pronounced alcohol presence. A pretty decent brew.
