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.

Lager style body and color with large white head. Not much for Saisons. But still alright for a Belgian Ale.

Bottle: Slight hazy pour, good size head. Fruity with hints of wheat. A lil funky, but still a great beer. Hop bitterness in the end.

Hoppy and floral but on the milder side. Good beer. Light and bubbly mouthfeel with a clean finish.

Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a nice thick white head. Smells of fruits. Great flavors of fruit with some yeast. Great beer.

climberbob (108) - Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Lots of carbonation w a huge white head that produces a nice grassy aroma. It is crisp and light w notes of malt and a dry, slightly sour finish. Not a particularly strong or overly funked Saison but still a decent beer.

Iíve had this beer a number of times, but this is the first time since becoming more acquainted with the style, and it was a bit disappointing. The scent is lemon with floral hints, The color is a cloudy blond. Taste is lemon and hay. It lacks the barnyard funk that I love about saisons, and I think that is the disappointment. Very drinkable, decent beer.

This cloudy, honey-gold beer has a bright, white head. The nose is yeasty with loads of heavy, sweet malt and light undertones of citrus hops. A slight touch of mustiness as it warms. The palate is medium-bodied with warm bread, soft fruits and light spice. The finish is once again yeasty, but semi-sweet with velvety malt and old lemons.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2004 Deep brown with a creamy beige head. Nice fruit on the nose. perhaps prune? Big mouthfeel, but cloyingly sweet. Hard to drink more than a half a glass as the beer becomes very heavy and sweet. Nice fruity undertones with some chocolate

Loved tjhis peer, the body is cloudy and a nice white foam head that dissipated quickly. Itís a medium body with hints of belguim sugar, fruits and finished with a nice, smooth taste. The aroma is mixed between all this, very nice blend and balanced, a little more carbonated than most beers in this category but great all around.

This country ale comes as a favorable surprise. Its color is a clear golden-orange (very pretty), with a pale, fluffy head. Its aroma is fruity and slightly sour, but its flavor is a bit darker than that would suggest; fruity, but also rather nutty, with a warm finish almost like that of a good brown ale. I like this ale.
