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.

Tap at happy gnome. 10oz pour. Light gold with small white head. Floral but subtle, smells of a tiny bit of alcohol. Crisp saison types of flavor. Very crisp and easy to drink. Some oily mouthfeel with a lot of spice. A good go to beer.

Darwenus (530) - Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Slightly cloudy, pale golden color with a huge head. The aroma is malt and mildly sweet fruit, but the flavor is dryer and stronger than the flavor implies. Not delicate at all. Grapefruit and bananas on the front. The nearly 8% ABV is present in the flavor. The finish is bright. This ale is substantial.

Refreshing and easy drinking saison with a deceptively stout ABV, but no arguments here. Good balance.

Helsdon (120) - Toronto, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
I realized the other day I hadnít rated this beer. Which is nuts because itís one of my absolute everyday favourites (not that I can get it in Ontario anymore. Thanks LCBO, you suck.) So I figured Iíd hit 100 with a great beer. Pours a cloudy golden, with a couple foamy fingers of white head, that settles down to a thick sheet with lacing. Itís the smell of this beer that gets it all going. Itís that lovely Belgian yeast that Ommegang seems to have as itís hallmark. Itís lemon and bread and cereal. Mmmmm. The taste isnít overwhelming, yet full of flavour. Yeasty, citrus, coriander with a mild spicy/acidic bit in there. Really, really well-crafted beer.
