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.

Golden color. Slightly sweet. Perfect level of carbonation. Easy to drink. Refreshing

Aroma is strong with complex notes of spice, banana and orange peel with some noble hop. Taste is lightly bitter up front with more spice, both yeasty and noble hop flavor. Finish is dry and effervescent. Damn good beer.

tkaufman (128) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Poured a muddy yellow with a bright large white head. Aroma of spice and hops. Flavor was pretty good at first, a nice spicy belgian with plenty of malt and hop bitterness. As the brew went on though the alcoholic warmth became overpowering. A very dry alcoholic finish.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Nice pale, bright yellow color with a bright white, persistent head. Only moderately spicy with some degree of sourness. Refreshing, deceivingly light with an alcohol kick.

AndrewM (126) - Waco (Buckle of the Bible Belt), Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Pours golden with a white white head. Head dissipates rapidly. Aroma of sweet hops. Flavor of bananas, very light on the palate. Flavor blends away rapidly to a clear aftertaste. Just a hint of alcohol in the taste. Warmth hits the belly a bit after the first few sips. Very pleasant sipping beer. Slight bittering due to the hops. Warming up, become more yeasty. Overall a decent drink, but I probably won’t be buying another 4-pack... not really my style.

Meatmallet (126) - Salem, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Hazy and golden yellow with a huge frothy white head.Smell is full of grass, hopps, and lemon. Yeastie and sweet but very light.Taste is not as sweet as I thought it would be. Kind of earthy with a hint of yeast and hops. More citrus than anything.Highly carbonated and medium bodied. Not bad but I dont think it is the world beater some people do.

johndavidj99 (125) - Dallas, Maine, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Golden with big white creamy head. Aroma is too sour/yeasty for me. Taste is spicy yeast with bad after taste. Compared to Dupont, this is poor in my opinion.

Poured from bottle, actually would have received a 5 on appearence however the head was rather large and did not dissipate for a long time. In fact the head reminded me of bubbles in a bubble bath. After asking an expert its called a rocky head.Citris and champagne like aroma and taste. For its style a very good beer.

Bottle: poured a hazy golden color with a nice airy white laced head. Aroma had nice belgium phenols complemented by pear and sour apple. Nice complex taste alot of nice peppery notes, the grains of paradise were present but not to overpowering. Didn’t get much ginger but overall it was a please beer!
