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.

Wow! This sucker packs a COMPLEX punch. The yeast & spice are beyond me, I’m glad I’ve tried this (on tap, a few times). A degree less cloudiness than Whitte, but still is white Alcohol makes itself known, but still awsome

12 oz bottle bought on a recent trip to Rochester. Pours a hazy straw colour with nice white head. Aroma is fruity, spices. Very good.

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 (230) - 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 (909) - 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.

Sjohnh (163) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle from beer gonzo. Hazy straw colour with a good frothy white head. Aroma is fruity and Belgian yeast. Fruity - mostly pear - with a slight tartness, noticeable coriander spicing and a dry finish. Not too much pepper or bitterness. Very easy drinking for 7.7%. Before this, I’ve only tried Three Philosophers from this brewery, which is absolutely awesome. This ain’t bad either.

Pleasant aroma that does not deliver on the taste. Tart and astringent with a fair bit of yeast.

Quite a lot of spice and bitterness. A little bit of an aftertaste. Color golden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Love the flavor, goes down smooth. Would buy again. Bought at Altoona in grocery store. Good for sipping around the campfire with friends

Aroma is funky, orange, citrus, clove and banana. Taste is citrus, orange, banana and Belgium yeast. Bubbly carbonated beer. Very complex taste. Multiple layers. Great for style, well made.
