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.

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2008
75cl bottle. Tasting@beermouth. Pours cloudy yellow with a white head & nice lacings. Yeast, spices & fruits (citrus/orange). Some wheat & coriander. Full bodied & quite fizzy carbonation (foamy). Fine American saison!

Theis (13227) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle at home - club tasting. Cleay pilsner yellow - white head. Yeasty, youghurt, fruity, light citric, citric sour, a bit mellow for a saison - it needs some crispness, freshness and sharpness.

harrisoni (13156) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2006
Bottle at Kookfest 2006. Pale gold, lasting white head. Belgian subtle yeasty aroma, some bananary estery aroma. Soft, drinkable. Cereal, lemon, banana, tingly finish. I liked it.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle, 75cl corked. (trade with the_epeeist) A hazy, orange-yellow beer with a dense, white head. Sweetish nose with honey, some peach, a touch of alcohol and bittering hops. Sweet and slightly bitter, herbal flavor that is quite fruity. Full-bodied, with a long, sweet finish with fruityness and some hops. Could use a little more spicyness. Sure pleasant though. (071228)

TBone (12329) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 4, 2008
Bottled, alc.?, bottle says 7.5 % and 8.5 %
Hazy pale yellow color, white head. Very fruity, sweetish, slightly hayish and papery hoppy aroma. Sweetish fruit sugar flavor, alcoholic, some pepperness. This is American style saison - too sweet for my liking.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2001
Re-rate: I guess I forgot to revise my rating in October when we got new supply of this stuff in Toronto, but Hennepin today is so much better than it used to be. The aggressive yeastiness and carbonation has given way to a smooth, rounded ale that has become the brewery’s best offering. By taking the yeast down a notch, the spice, malts, and earthy hop undertones blend seemlessly together - a perfect autumn quaffer.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2003
(Bottle) Nice attmept of a Belgian Saison, but no cigar... Pours a light golden color with a medium creamy head. Descent, but not the best Ommegang has to offer.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - APR 6, 2003
Hazy yellow with quickly-dissipating big head. Taste matches aroma -- moderately sweet, orange and spicy (coriander +), some yeast and breadiness. Medium body, quite quaffable.
