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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2004
Bottled @mwsfs 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.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Nice pale, bright yellow color with a bright white, persistent head. Only moderately spicy with some degree of sourness. Refreshing, deceivingly light with an alcohol kick.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2004
Pale golden yellow colour, slightly cloudy with a thick lively frothy white head. Aroma is fruity (cherry and blackberry) and spicy (cloves). Mostly sweet fruity cherry flavours with lightly acidic undertone. Dryish and refreshing mouthfeel.

tomxcs (321) - California, USA - MAY 8, 2004
A vinous aroma; fruity but also kind of sour, like cherries. Golden color with a fluffy, white, lasting head. Malts & spices & other flavors that I could not put my finger on. Lots of carbonation. Not excellent, but I got a great deal on the bottle, so Im satisfied.

DarkElf (3061) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Very balanced Belgian ale with moderate sweetness, some maltiness, spices, hops bitterness and a slightly sour flavor; Palate is expansively carbonated, medium bodied and somewhat sticky, but not cloyingly so; The aroma is both sweet and sour, with some spiciness going on; Pale yellow in color and somewhat cloudy; Small sediment is suspended in the beer; Good sized head on the pour with decent retention and some lacing

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Bottle: Pours to a hazy yellow/gold with a large white frothy head that is mostly lasting. Nice lacing around the glass. Aroma: yeast, bananas, citrus crisp, wood?, clove. Flavor: slight yeast that is not overpowering, alcohol taste needs to be better hidden, spicey, pepper. Lingering aftertaste that is like a bland, mild version of the beer itself. I expected this to be better.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Pours a pale orange with some yeast and a white ring with some lacing. Aroma is mild with spices and citrus and vanilla. Flavor has a bit of an alcohol bite to it that overpowers some of the other flavors; I detect some citrus flavor and spices and maybe a little yeast. Feels rather average in the mouth. Overall, I expected better. This beer is hurt by the ridiculous alcohol taste for such a low-alcohol beer.
