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.

Poured a hazy dark straw color with a large white head. Light to medium bodied. Aroma was fruity, spiced, and yeasty. Flavor is lightly sweet, fruity, and doughy. Some light hop and spice finish. Semi-dry finish.

the beer poured a yellow color very close to a lager with the same style head.i got light hints of belgian yeast,straw,and oatmeal cookies out of the aroma.much is the same in the taste.this is definately not bad,just a little over priced at 2.99 a bottle.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 8, 2005
750ml bottle. Clear bright lemon yellow with a massive meringue-like white head. The lacing left as the head recedes is incredible; beautiful designs covering the entire glass. Very fruity spicy nose brimming with lemons, peaches, apricots, vanilla, oranges, pepper and coriander. Taste: lemons, honey, sugar cookies, bananas, peaches and oranges. This American version of a Belgian ale has a lively carbonation , a rich creamy mouthfeel and a smooth buttery aftertaste. Absolutely delicious.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Golden color and thin head. Light on the palate with not much in the way of Belgian yeast aroma or flavor. Thin, light on the palate.

AdamSkillin (376) - High Bridge, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2008 Re-rating because I had this draught, which is awesome. Hazy, yellow, slightly sour farmhouse scent. Great balance, and a really cool tap handle, not that that counts for anything.

Sturgess (173) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Hennepin is plainly awesome. A little pricey out of Cooperstown,NY, but hey, still a great brew that fills you up with a good belgian white tripel taste and leaves you wanting more.

donvitozou (141) - memphis, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2005
pours with fair head, golden color, a little more bitter than other saisons, but still spicy and fruity.

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Poured golden with a huge white head. Spicy belgian aroma, not unlike Duvel. Taste is spicy and vinuous with a somewhat bittersweet dry finish.

Fruity aroma. Dark yellow appearance. Enormous head that last a very long time. Flavor is also of fruit with malt sweetness. Light palate.

Nastey, Oiley, drain pour--I too Hope Jsquire had a bottle past its time. But the dinner was superb (beef tips on rice with sauteed pistatios, green beans and sausage--dont ask about the jello). Now that I have written enough to qualify I hope to get the chance to rerate.
