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.

zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Hazy yellow color with a big and thick white head. Spicy aroma of wheat, pepper, citrus and grass. Very peppery and yeasty flavor with a sweet taste in the middle and a sweet and yeasty aftertaste. Very crisp and refreshing.

3.5
Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2004 Poured a hazy honey colored yellow with a large and enchanting white head. Big bubbles all around. Aroma was of yeast, fruitiness, grasses in a blender, a few spices, etc. Flavors included all kinds of fruits, yeast, and spices. Not bad but certainly not what I was expected. Very alcoholic, to much so, especially compared to Belgian great Saisons (Blaugies, Fantome, Dupont)

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2004
Hazy orange golden appearance, rich sticky white head. Crisp and refreshing aroma of wheat, yeast, spices, wormwood and citric fruit. Orangey yeasty flavour with a strong spicy note of coriander or wormwood. Crisp citric finish with a strong yeasty note. Refreshing beer.

bottle. pours nice with head that lasts for the length of the drink. looks great, tasts very good, goes down well. A secret treasure from Hennepin (I say because of its $4.00 cost for a 750 ml bottle)

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 1, 2004
nice lemony, banana, pear, and yeasty nose; heavily carbonated and cloudy as usual; beautiful head and lacing; fruity, hoppy tart and sweet flavor; creamy, tingly alcoholic palate.

3.3
burcusabrews (106) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2004 Deep brown with a creamy beige head. Nice fruit on the nose. perhaps prune? Big mouthfeel, but cloyingly sweet. Hard to drink more than a half a glass as the beer becomes very heavy and sweet. Nice fruity undertones with some chocolate

3.1
Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 This pours a hazy golden hue with a frothy head that lingers for the length of the drink. Floral and citric hops, in that order, come through in the aroma. Fruity taste with a definite alcohol presence. Has a bitter, winey finish. Not a bad experience.

mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Hazy copper-orange color with a fluffy white head. Flowery, citrusy, yeasty nose. Refreshing, spritzy mouthfeel. Flavors of lemon, orange, yeast rolls and green apple meld together admirably. Finishes with a bit of a hoppy blast along with a dry tartness. Improves greatly as the bottle warms into the 60 degree range as the nose, flavors and alcohol really intensify.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Orange Coloring. Small White Head. Flowery in Aroma. Yeast, Spice..Very Sweet. Good Bite from Alcohol.. Possibly Some Apple in There as Well. Most Unique Saison I’ve Tried So Far but Very Very Enjoyable.

3.7
badgerben (5251) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Pours a golden color with a nice, frothy, white head. Kind of a dusty, and spicy nose, yet a little sweet. Very similar taste with apple and hops prevailing. A tad on the tart side. Not like any saison I’ve had, and I like it!
