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

Poured golden, yellow-brown, nice, thick head, lots of lace, aroma of yeast, hops, some sweetness. Flaovr is bold and vibrant, hops, malts, and nice bit of spices that remain for some time makes for an enjoyable beer.

Saison (French, "season") is the name originally given to refreshing, low-alcohol pale ales brewed seasonally in farmhouses in Wallonia, the French-speaking region of Belgium, to refresh farm workers during harvest season. Modern-day saisons are also brewed in other countries, particularly the USA, and are generally bottle conditioned, with an average range of 5 to 8% abv,[1] though saisons at the more traditional 3.5% strength can still be found. { Wikipedia} 7.7% is a pretty big beer. Love that cork pop,, makes me wonder how diff. this could taste on draft. Smells ok, nice frothy head, love those champagne - like self conditioned bottle bubbles. Nice pile of it on the bottom. The label says pour so not to disturb so thats how Iíll agree to do the first couple, but after that Iím shakin this fucker around just a little. Man, this stuff tastes clean. It has kind of a lemony taste in the nose. Very refreshing, non cloying etc. Could be just me but it seems to stick in the back of the windpipe a little. Get some hot wings and this stuff will be bad ass.

tastes: tart, citrus, lemon, yeast, bite of bread. Sharp carbonation up front then tart leaving a light metallic yesty aftertaste less metallic as it warms, also more noticable, albeit minute, hop bitterness as the temp raises.
