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.

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. Didnít get much ginger but overall it was a please beer!

Light yellow color with white fluffy head. Aroma is sweet with spicy hops. Flavor is more of the aroma, with a somewhat funky finish. Overall very nice.

Wow... third beer Ive had from this cooperstown brewery and have been more and more impressed everytime. I like the unfiltered belgian style of this beer. Ive had some disappointing beers tonight but this is a saving grace to the night. Good flavor and very carbonated but worth a try. I bumped this overall rating up one point because Kevin Rezai said so.

Deep yellow with a substantial light yellow head. Smells of tart fruits and delicate hops. Sweet grains also present. Lovely, balanced scent. The fruits are present to taste, but more citrus than expected. The hops are indeed delicate and subtle, but still noticeable.

Pours a hazy golden color with a very active head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is yeast, pepper, dry citrus. Taste comes across the same with a dry mouthfeel all the way through. I see in some of the reviews that people say itís their go to beer. Iím in the same camp. Iíve had this several times and it never disappoints.

12oz. bottle. Pours a murky, pale yellow with a thick white head that laces beautifully. Aroma is of wheat, yeast, cloves and a hint of lemon. Flavor is of bananas, wheat, and yeast with subtle sweet finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and sharp. Very nice.

Airlifter (118) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Pours a hazy golden color with a lot of bright white head. Mild aroma, though a bit skunky. Bittersweet flavor with a lot of spice; coriander, clove, hint of apricot. Yeasty good stuff.

This beer never quite does it for me as a saison. Certainly a decent beer, and deserving a better score than Iíve meted out, but itís not to my taste, and to my mind not to the style. Can be great ice cold though.
