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.

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.

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.
