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.

Tasted on tap at Ommegang with ML. Pours hazy golden with a pale head. Aroma is funky yeast, tropical fruit, hay, and cloves. Flavour is banana, orange, coriander, and light hops. Champagne mouthfeel. Awesome saison-style beer.

Champagne like saison, but not the hard core sour of some more sour saisons. Which I liked!!! I like it mellow sour and big sour, this one is more towars the mellow. Peaches and apricot aroma and flavor. Great

Pours a hazy yellow with a creamy medium white head. Aroma has earthy hops meets apricot with some wheaty and peppery spice...hint of clove. Flavor follows suit...tangy fruit up front and nice dry spiciness. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is earthy/fruity/spicy and dry.

Possibly the first saison which I've liked. It's visually amazing. Smells good and tastes lovely. If it wasn't 7.7% I could drink this all day. And night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dbhenry (125) - El Paso, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2014
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.

swesson (232) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2014
From a bomber. Pours a cloudy golden and forms a frothy, thick head that dissipates after a short while. Almost champagne-type bubbly. Smells of fresh hops, lemons, and spice. Tastes of fresh hops, citrus, grass, and spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kevinator (951) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Nice saison. Fruity esters and wheat aroma. Very earthy. Golden Chardonnay color. Light palate with a tartness and good carbonation. Tart fruit flavors followed by a grainy and grassy essence. Slight alcoholic tint at the finish. Lingering.
