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.

Bottle @ Yespr tasting.
[thank you, Yespr]
Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow. Nice stream of small bubbles reach from the centre of my glass towards an incredibly great frothy white head that leaves great blothy lacings on my glass. Aroma is lightly sweet, malty and subdued, but present herbs. Mouthfeel is crisp and light, but never thin. Flavour is initially a bit sweet, bút the herbal and spicy notes hit me well into the aftertaste. Super drinkability, only flaw may be a bit too much sweetness.

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.

A: Golden straw color, lots of white foam and great lacing. S: Great yeast smell, some light citrus, apple might make an appearance, and a very light funkiness. T: A slight sweetness, some green fruits. Yeast and spice are there as well, adding to the complex taste. M: Medium body, good amount of carbonation for this beer. D: Delicious Saison, well balanced and interesting.

Perhaps my favorite brew from the Ommegang crew. I’ve had on many occasions and it never disappoints. Pours a gold color with a nice white head. Smells of spice and citrus. Mild carbonation and a crisp, sweet taste.
