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.

I tried this and Saison Dupont as my two Saisons. Liked this one far far more. Tastes of earthy florals. Beautiful, thick pour.

Bottle 12 oz--Kinda wish I had the larger bottle as this is a fine US brew. The aroma did put me off, not totally unpleasant, but definately off. The head was large, a little more fizzy than frothy. The aroma taste was dominated by citrus and a prickly lemony taste on the lips. Good stuff, will have to try again to see about the aroma.

Bottle. Pours a golden yellow color. Lot’s of fruit, spices & Belgian yeast. Solid Belgian-style ale. The price is always right.

blankboy (7662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2006
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold, lots of floaties, and a large lasting foamy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of fruit, yeast, spices and hops. Flavour is fairly typical and run-of-the-mill: Belgian yeast, fruit, spices and hops. Dry finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good but nothing special.

I really really like Hennepin. My rating does not actually do justice to how I feel about this beer. Maybe it’s just a personal thing. Great taste and strong appearance.

12 oz-Poured light with a great head. A slight taste of hops with a mix of spice. Not bad.

This is a good beer, especially if you live in a small town like myself. It’s stronger than normal, but the alcohol is hidden well. The carbonation is very lively, agree with others that it is a great champagne. I like it before dinner, it clears the palate a bit. Not as much aroma as I would want, and the head dies down too quickly. I personally like it only slightly colder than room temp.
