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.

UNCCTF (512) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Bottled; my first saison. Hazy golden coloring with an aroma of cloves and fruits. The flavor was mostly orange with some light spice. A very enjoyable, easy-drinking high gravity beer.

demannu (119) - New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2015
Lovely golden straw color with a white head and fair lacing. Weak aroma overall, faint fruit and spice. Crisp and soft medium body. Flavor is very satisfying with banana, light citrus, and mild spice. Not getting much bitter though. Wouldn’t think this was a nearly 8% abv. Good beer.

Grumbo (767) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle from Utobeer, Borough Market, London. Pours a very pale yellow with medium sized white head. Aroma is floral, mildly hoppy, with a touch of yeast and citrus. Medium sweet with a light bitterness. Medium body, texture a little thin. Average carbonation, has a floral finish.

Pours a cloudy gold. Thick, frothy head and lacing. Lemon zest, orange peel, pine on the nose. Bitter and sweet flavors, yeast and malts alongside citrus and honey. A really enjoyable saison.

Cool_Bond (1845) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Citrus and yeast on the nose. Citrus and light fruity taste. Fairly heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. Mediocre beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Flaska í saison smökkun 21. mars. Ljós og tćr. Ilmar af geri, pipar og kóriander. Passlega ţurr.

dandeman (611) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
En fut au Bier Markt Ottawa. Le nez laisse entrevoir beaucoup d’agrumes qui se confirment en bouche. Orange, pamplemousse, mangue. On dirait une IPA. Trčs sucrée pour une saison. Délicieuse, mais hors style. texture beaucoup plus ronde qu’une saison traditionnelle.

adamnowek (487) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
Slightly hazy golden. Sparkly, almost like champagne. Aroma is ever so slightly funky but also herbal. A hint of bitter apples.

ryecatcher (931) - South Side of Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2015
750 mL bottle. Pours a pale, straw yellow, fluffy white head with nice retention, some floaties. Nose is grassy, some funk, a tad skunky. Mouth is medium bodied, creamy, mild sweetness, lemon zest, bread dough, coriander, grassy, touch metallic (which I also got in the last Ommegang beer I had recently too...). I’ll give them a pass on the skunk, as it’s not their fault the douche-bags at the Jewel don’t understand storing anything about stocking beer other than Old Style and Busch (and it’s as much my fault in that regard for buying craft beer at the Jewel in the first place), but based solely on my previous experiences with other Ommegang beers, overall this one is just another example from of what I find to be an underwhelming brewery.

thb (740) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 14, 2015
Clear straw yellow with mountainous head. Fresh bread, lemon, hay. Bright citrus with earthy, slightly bitter funk throughout. Very bubbly - champagne-like as they say. Clean, dry, bitter finish. Enjoyable

Handypaul (296) - - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a big white lasting head that leaves good lacing. Disappointingly weak aroma of clove, lemon and orange peel. Big flavors of coriander, lemon, clove and butterscotch, medium body, average carbo, medium bitter and light to medium sour and a very very long finish. Great complexity. Very nicely done.
