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.

Nice and traditional farmhouse saison. Flowery aroma with soft bubbles. Lace foam cap. A little bitter. Similar to Tank 7.

Scopey (8999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle at home. It pours cloudy golden with a decent fluffy white head. The nose is soft, doughy, cereal, fruity, spicy action, herbal, grassy, nougat, banana, orange rind, brioche and toasty grain. The taste is smooth, doughy, crisp grassy bitterness, spice, ripe banana, apple, pear drops, some alcohol boost, orange peel and toasty grain with a dry, spicy finish. Medium body and moderate-high foamy carbonation. True to style and could easily pass for a Belgian creation. Tasty.

Beachmaster (233) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a clear light yellow, with a huge fluffy white head that persists. Good lacing. Nose is faint aroma of Belgian yeast and light malt. Taste is lightly malted grain and Belgian yeast notes of cloves and bananas. Mouth feel is medium, and the finish is crisp and dry. Nice.

Bright gold body with a tight bubbled white head. The nose draws in wheat, yeast, spices. The tongue shares that experience with the additions of white pepper and coriander. A rock solid saison.

EvanFriend (417) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2015
This is WAY too boozy for the style. Sharp grain alcohol taste over some spicy and maybe some fruity and straw notes.

Dogbrick (9439) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy straw-gold color with a medium thick white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Yeast, cloves and fruit in the nose. Medium body with flavors of herbal yeast, coriander, toasty malt and citrus. The finish is fruity with a floral yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, pepper and citrus. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a long slightly dry, yeasty, peppery and citrus finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
