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.

Palme (4817) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2017
On tap @ Fools Gold. This is a mild blurry looking goldenish colored one with a nice medium sized hefty lacing white head on the top. Smells nice with a slightly lemonic sour mild theme. Lime zest and some soft yeast. Blue grapes and pear also in here. Nice. It’s sweeter in the taste than the aroma. Nice and oily on the texture and about average on the small prickling carbonation bubbles. Refreshing and saison typical in the taste. A bit on the sweeter side perhaps. More pear and melon, a little bit of hay. Soft white peppery tail. Good stuff. 20.06.2015

SONOFWODEN (72) - New York, USA - JAN 1, 2017
This is my first Belgian Saison style recommended by a cousin who likes Belgians. It was very, very good, really enjoyed it. Golden color, nice head, medium body, noticeably sweet and hoppy. Definitely going to try this again.

voyageurmike (502) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Bomber from Whole Foods, poured into tulip glass for a toast to my departed dad. Orange yellow with strong carbonation, yeasty nose, big white head. Full bodied with strong alcohol taste that tends to overpower other more subtle notes of orange peel and coriander. The finish is sweet malt.

willisread (3554) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Bottle from West Side. Pours a hazy gold with 2 fingers of pillowy foam that linger. Classic saison nose with light citrus, wheat and faint grass. Silky smooth body and mouthfeel. Lightly sweet, but with some peppery bitterness. Peppery finish with some light grassy hops. Way better than I expected.

tapefuzz (760) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Tasting at brewery. Pours yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is grassy with clove and coriander. Taste is clove, coriander, light lemon, grain funk, spice, and light pepper. Dry finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Thick, pillowy mouthfeel.

3.4
PhillyCraft (7738) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
BB backlog, Bottle with Fantasy, pours a hazy orange color with medium 2 finger off white head. Heavy spices, orange skin, herbs, candy sugar, hops and sweet malt dominate the smell and taste. I definitely wouldn’t call this a grisette these days. Way too boozy and sweet profile for that style

Apricot aromas, hazy straw colored appearance. Heavily carbonated, light banana flavors, finishes light and crisp. Really easy to drink saison.
