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.

Poured cold from a tap, aroma not very strong. Taste was crisp, medium sweetness, very short aftertaste, effervescent feeling. Pretty good. A great value for the buck.

Pours out a dark gold with a lingering white head. Aroma is pretty malty with a bit of skunk detected? Taste is sweet, and the alcohol is noticeable. A pretty unique beer but not Ommegang’s best.

Excellent Saison! Fruity, aromatic, with nicely foam head. Very refreshing, try it with seafood! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This wonderful saison has more overt flavors and full mouthfeel than average for the style. I also notice less of the sourness that dominates many saisons. Great beer!

This one has some nice flavors but it is just not my style. The beer looks pretty good though. I drank the whole 4 pack but I will never get it again.

Some real funk here in the aroma with a distinct smell of marijuana. This beer is fine but the flavor is not that memorable. Had this a couple of times and dont think ill be coming back

Pours golden in color, smells spicy and fruity. Very clean crisp flavors..perfect first beer of the night. I found to be refreshing and really an overall great beer.

Bottle. Pours a light golden color, transparent with a huge flux of bubbles rising from the depths of my glass, foamy fluffy white head, good lacing. Aroma is spicy, definitely coriander and cloves, kind of fruity like peaches and apricots, very delicate and complex. Spicy, hoppy, yet neither are very dominant, a gentle balance between the two. A hint of sweetness, bitterness, maybe even a hint of sourness. Mouthfeel is like champagne, well carbonated (the "pop" when I pulled the cork was pretty violent), yet there is a great supple feel after every sip, and the bubbles attach themselves to every part of your mouth. Great stuff, I haven’t had much experience drinking Saisons, and this beer has convinced me that I’m missing out if I don’t go out looking for more examples of this style.
