COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This style is a farmhouse ale, and is considered to be in the domain of the Belgian Saisons. Hennepin is a delicious brew for all seasons, it is spicy and refreshing. A moderately hoppy, farmhouse-style ale with a champagne-like effervescence, Hennepin has a crisp start followed by malt sweetness balanced with a firm bitterness. Hennepin has a bounty of great flavors: ginger, spice, orange and toasted grain. Pouring a bright golden color with a spicy-sweet balance of orange peel, sweet malt, hops and ginger, Hennepin makes way for a dry finish with a slight bite of ginger.

Bottle. Cloudy gold color. Foamy white head. Beautiful lacing. Delicious sweet aroma of spicy coriander, orange peel, and wheat. Very lively, but not harsh at all to the palate. Champaign like. Very sweet and spicy flavors of orange peel, wheat, and nutmeg, but creamy and light in texture. Both crisp and silky at times, with a clean bitter hoppy finish, that mellows into a sweet grainy/wheaty aftertaste. One of the best beers I’ve had as far as texture and flavor among the lighter beers. Its fantastic!

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 Sweet aroma, a combination of a saison and a belgian ale. Floral perfume, hay, honey. Taste is sweet and lightly bitter. Grass, honey, quite belgian-triple-ish. Quite sweet, nothing special.

The bottle pretty much nails it:This hoppy, farmhouse style ale has a champagne like effervescence with a crisp but light on the tongue finish. I didn't care for it so much primarily because of the hop presence but I couldn't quit drinking it either. Interesting beer February/2017 second tasting. Didn't notice the hot presence that much this time. Thought it was pretty good nice long lasting finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Could of sworn this was rated? But guess not, growler fill on the cheap, so no complaints, pours a light yellow gold with nice fluffy white head,nose is grain, lemon rind n some banana peel, quite light bodied, nice saison that goes down easily and is fairly smooth, nice overall, finishes with a slight bite of alcohol, dry for the most part, tasty...
