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.

12oz bottle poured with a nice, frothy head. Aroma of citrus, spice, and cloves. Excellent going down with a wonderful spicy taste flanked by banana, hops, and citrus. Wonderful American saison.

Enjoyed on tap at Palm Tavern. Pours a rich gold with a thick and lacy white head. Smells of hay, wheat and clover with a slight effervescence. The taste is creamy wheat with a touch of sour and hops. Creamy palate with a lingering finish with some dryness on the mid to back of the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy golden, with a two finger fluffy head which dies down quickly. Yeasty, sweet slightly hoppy nose. Taste is dank lemon, citrus, banana, with yeast, has some sweetness. Finish has a nice yeasty (banana, clove) taste, sitting on top of a sugared sweetness. Yes I did say "sweet" a lot there....just thought it a but too much for the style. Pretty good besides

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Small white head, pale golden color. Pretty highly carbonated. Smells malty, fruity and yeasty--very much like a weizen beer to me. Fizzy malty taste, with a very yeasty and bitter finish. I don't mind the flavor until the finish. A little too yeasty sharp for me. All-in-all a decent beer though.

Quite spicy, with citrus and malt flavors that sort of remind me of an octoberfest. I think it was a good introduction to this style.

The hoppy fruit spice aroma didn’t carry over into a complex tasting experience. It drank too carbonated and with an evident alcohol taste. Not as good as it’s more potent brother but still a worthy drinking experience at much less of a cost than most other Belgium offerings.

This delicate tasting , light yellow ale is fine. The flavors are complex, with several herbs being apparent. Medium hoppiness and a light body make this a good afternoon drink.

MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of spice, funk, and yeast. Flavor starts sweet and spicy, then progresses into a slightly hoppy bitter finish. I really like this saison. It is very carbonated and refreshing. The slight bitter finish really tops of the spicy flavor.

Poured into a tulip glass. Aromas of straw, cereal, lemon. Straw color with an effervescent, white head. Crisp flavors of candi sugar, lemon and farmhouse funk, but the alcohol really comes through on the taste. This is a good, but not great, offering from a really great brewery.

Almost clear amber pour under an off white head, with medium lace, nice little acidic bite and crisp little finish, very good.
