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.

Pours a pale straw colour with a modest white head. Aroma is of grainy bread, fruit and bubble gum. A little mustiness in the nose that isn’t unappealing. Taste follows the nose with bready malt , fruit, a slight tartness, and light spiciness maybe ginger?mouthfeel was quite dry with high carbonation but rich and silky almost soapy how I like it. Overall a delicious beer I would happily drink all summer.

The bottle pretty much nails it:This hoppy, farmhouse style ale has a champagne like effervescence with a crisp but light on the tongue finish. I didn't care for it so much primarily because of the hop presence but I couldn't quit drinking it either. Interesting beer February/2017 second tasting. Didn't notice the hot presence that much this time. Thought it was pretty good nice long lasting finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Could of sworn this was rated? But guess not, growler fill on the cheap, so no complaints, pours a light yellow gold with nice fluffy white head,nose is grain, lemon rind n some banana peel, quite light bodied, nice saison that goes down easily and is fairly smooth, nice overall, finishes with a slight bite of alcohol, dry for the most part, tasty...

On tap @ the Town Crier, Toronto. Pours a large amount of foamy white head. Pale golden appearance. Fairly clear. Thick dirty lacing. Aromas are mainly floral hops, light orange peel and wheats as well as Belgian yeast notes. Slight bitter citrus hop flavours, sort of yeasty, wheats and grain notes as well mild coriander. Mild spices. A bit of malty sweetness also comes through. Smooth and wet mouthfeel. Good balance. Medium retention.

Smell of yeast, orange, champagne. Come in golden color with white cream crown. Taste of yeast, ginger, citrus. Somewhat sour and high in alcohol for session. Refreshing and good for summer. Good above average.
