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.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Got this for New Years and wish I wouldve just spent the extra $3 or $4 on something better. Pretty basic beer, poured a golden orange color with fluffy white head, the 3 glasses I poured out of it for myself all tasted the same, an orange and coriander flavor with maybe some lemon zest but very subtle, you could taste the alcohol either that or the spices used in it, this was a dissapointment but it also only cost $4.75 for this big ass bottle so you get what you pay for.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Nice opaque amber color with a clean, consistent head. Initial nose contains gentle orange flavors with a silky texture, and the first touch to the palate affirms this observation. The finish is dissappointing as the alcohol is quite biting on the edges of the tongue for a Belgian ale of 7.7%

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 12oz Bottle. Lemon wheat cloudy pour, tinged with orange. Rimmed with a symmetrical sticky white. Gentle warm pear and fresh bread aroma. A soft citrus flavor combined with warm yeast. Alcohol is surprisingly biting and somewhat harsh on the finish. Mainly a run of pineapple and other generic fruits that dont fully rear their heads.

thehinge (292) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Gold pour is extremely carbonated with a large head....laces well. Taste is well spiced, sweet with hints of clove on the front end and a little hop bitterness on the finish.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2005
Had this one soon after saison dupont. Quite a contrast between the two. THis one is a bit hoppier and doesnt really have a lot in the yeast "funk" department. All of the spiciness that youd expect in , say, a tripel is here, but that special Saison quality just seems to be missing.

Boutip (6131) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2005
Bottle: Poured a clear golden yellow ale with a huge bubbly white head with above standard retention. Aroma of pear and lemon with some distinguishable yeast. Taste is really hoppier then most Saison I have tried with a dry finish. Body is quite full and spice mix is interesting but could have been more accentuated. Very interesting take on the style.

shrubber85 (11024) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle. Pear and orange aroma. Light orange-yellow color with nice head. Nice fruity flavor - lemon primarily but also apple and pear. On the dry side with a mild hops finish. Hoppier than most saisons but still a very good and enjoyable beer.

hippie4beer (162) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Bottle. (12oz.) Pours a hazy lemon color with a big soapy, lasting head. The head produces excellent glass lacing. Aroma of corriander, lemon, and spice. Flavor is familiar with bananas, lemon, wheat, and sweet malt. Finishes somewhat sour. Medium well carbonated, very drinkable.
