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.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2004 Very light golden brew.Little layer of white foam.Has a little sourness to it and lots of wheat and yeast.Sounds dumb but tastes like you would expect after getting a whiff .It is really a light and thin brew which I find to be nice on a hot day.Almost takes on a spiced cider flavor for a finish,quite nice.I came back to this after a while and it had warmed up a bit.Completely blew me away.The spicey fruit flavor had intensified along with the alcohol.Very nice.

An enjoyable saison, a style that I am recently starting to enjoy and getting to know intimately. The cork flew across the room and bounced off the ceiling. Slight head, sweet fruity flavor. Very easy to drink.

Pale yellowish color. Fresh, floral,citrusy nose, quite like a witbier.Very beautiful, very inviting, who could refuse a sip of a brew so friendly?Taste is extremely satisfying, if lacking depth, but then, like many pretty things, its not meant to be deep, just delicious, dlightful, dlovely!

jb (3190) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2015 Had the big bottle with the cork, not much of a pop. Hazy as its bottle-conditioned. Wasnt sure what the big deal was. Pale color, light wheat taste. Nice effervescence and light fruit in the finish, but overall disappointing. 4/27/13 what was I thinking in2004? This is pretty tasty. Nice yeasty effects.
