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: MAR 2, 2005 Probably one of the better belgians I’ve experienced. Hazy golden with a frothy white head, great retension, and fantastic lacing! Smell of apples and citrus, pleasant flavor, great for conversation. Near perfect.

Hennepin was an average tasting wheat. A little to smokey with not enough body. Packs quite a punch though. I’m very picky about my wheat beers so some may find it better than what I rated it.

Had at HBF from bottle. Big carbonation in a straw-colored pour. Aromas of citrus, spice, earth. Tasted spicy, citrusy, with some peaty, malty effects at the finish.

Pretty good saison. Similar to du pont yet this is not quite as grassy yet has more of a complex spiciness. Nice light color with lots of carbonation making it perfect for the hot summer months. Very nice.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2007 Straw, or Golden color with a very tall white foamy head. Spicy and mildly citrusy. The description says it fall into the domain of Belgian Saisons... not even close. I didn’ think this even began to touch a Fantome or any other I have tried. 6/3/5/3/12
RERATE: Straw colored pour with a very attractive head of creamy white lace. Aroma is sweet with just a touch of dried spicy hops. The flavor is a smooth and well blended mix of wheat, cloves, and just a touch of fruity sweetness. A very clean, easy drinking saison. What the hell was I thinking when I rated this the first time?

Beautiful straw colored with light frothy head and lacing on top. Sort of subtle and not overpowering at all. A very easy to drink brew.

Bottled @mwsf’s place. Not a huge fan of this brewer so far. Yeasty choc/caramel, pretty sweet and a little bit syruppy to be honest, but not bad.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Pours a clouded hay colored. Nice fluffy white head. Nose is yeast, spice, and fruit. I was surprised at the light tartness, not sure if I completely enjoyed it. I have to try this one again.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Poured pale opaque orange, a kind of golden wheat color. Aroma was yeast and lemon. Taste was also yeasty and lemon with a sour "bite" to it. Almost a tart or "puckery" taste, not so much to my liking.
