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.

Of all of the craft brewed beers that I have tried, this has to be one of my favorites. Lots of carbonation. Almost looks like a wheat beer, with its cloudy appereance. A hoppy finish and a very refreshing drink. Alcohol is somewhat perceptible.

mrjez (410) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market/Sake Taniguchi. Slightly hazy straw gold, foamy head that doesnít leave. Citrus and coriander aroma, funky notes, Belgian yeast, champagne. Taste follows, lemon, apricot, orange, with spice and funk pushing through mid-palate. Medium-bodied, decent carbonation, crisp and dry finish. Really lovely, much closer to the Belgian style than most brewers saisons these days.

Pours a bright golden yellow with fizzy head. Aromas of tropical fruits and some citrus peel. Funky orange/lemon peel flavors with a nice woody funk.

Kauge (1530) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 21, 2016
Tap at Bar Hop. Almost transparant orangey amber with good white head, excellent retention and lace. The aroma is tropical and sourish fruity and a bit funky. Fruity, tartish bittersweet, dusty, grainy and kinda wheaty flavour. Really refreshing yet with a rather dry and dusty mouthfeel. A bit difficult to pick up the outstandingness of the brew as Iím having it from a stupid straight-up sample glass but itís very good nonetheless.

Yumzies (24) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2016
This saison almost resembles a witbier with slightly more yeasty notes and some mild lemon peel or citrus in the aroma. It pours hazy straw with a creamy head that slowly dissipates. Looks gorgeous in a chalice. The carbonation feels great and adds to the fresh taste of this beer. Thereís a bit of a grassy finish but not in a bad way. Alcohol is 7.7% yet itís barely discernible. Nice refreshing beer for the summer.

Stoned99 (1117) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2016 750ml bottle from Canada Craft club. Aroma: nose of banana, spices, fresh cereals. App: clear golden, medium white head ever lasting, lacing covering almost fully the glass. Taste and palate: medium body, light sweetness, lively carbonation, light lingering bitter and light burning alcohol finish. Overall: a great surprise. Honestly itís been waiting for 2 months in my fridge, I didnít want to drink it as I thought I wouldnít like it. Great surprise. Wasnít expecting this great banana aroma and taste. Iím not sure Iíll be able to drink this bottle all by myself because of the strong banana taste and the champagne like carbonation might be overwhelming at some point but so far I enjoy every sip of it. Really refreshing even though itís abv.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2016 Aroma is banana, clove, dry, barnyard, not much ginger or orange peel. Appearance is hazy, golden, white head. Taste is nice, citrus, orange peel, barnyard, dust, banana, clove, spices, tropical fruit, pine, complex and really really good. Mouthfeel is medium body, light but crisp carbonation, a nice citrus and dust coats the mouth in the aftertaste. Overall, yowza. This one is quite enjoyable.

The beer pours a hazed medium gold with a generous white cap that lasts. The aroma is barnyard funk, citrus and yeast. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is funky grains, light spices, yeast, and citrus. Pairs well with a banana for a vacation breakfast.

Hazy, pale golden in colour. Substantial foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of straw, banana, estery, alcohol, clove. Taste of lemon, straw, some banana, lots of fruity-estery notes. Full bodied, with a creamy, coating mouthfeel. Lively carbonation and a long, lingering finish. Really quite nice.
