3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of yeast and citrus, perhaps some grass. A little lemon? Slightly translucent light gold color with a white real ale head that is ferocious (and laces). Starts with lemony citrus, yeast, banana?, and cardamom? Decent frothy mouthfeel. The finish is a bit herbal with spice and light hop bitter. Seems very well balanced. Quite tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) shared by JK54B - thanks!
Hazy pale orange, small persistent tight head. Sharp sour fruity aroma - citrus. Soft palate, pleasant carbonation. Tangy hops, but a little cardboardy. Sharp citrus too, and apple, but also some alcohol. Passable saison, but not great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 355ml from Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Birmingham. Gold with white head. Bitter lemons in the aroma, which transfers into the flavour pretty accurately. Herby, spicy, fruity Belgian Yeast notes and the drying lemon, perhaps a bit of a dish-wash liquid note, but otherwise fairly decent.
