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.

Fantastic summer beer! The perfect blend of a wheat beer with a hoppy touch. Exceptional beer for warm weather with a perfectly balanced finish.

From the Bottle. Some fruity esters on the nose, Smooth mouth feel, taste is fairly clean initially then some upfront spice and esters appear, mainly clove, banana and bitter lemon. Finishes dry but I’d still like to get a bit more bite.

Slightly hazy golden pour with a 1-finger creamy white head. Yeasty, fruity, banana bread aroma. Nice small bubble mouthfeel. Malty taste up front with a lemony aftertaste. A wonderfull beer!

Rated while drinking: Pours a cloudy golden color with a head that appears, but disappears. Lots of Belgian yeast elements yell at my nose. Bunch of flavor, mainly bananas and cloves (expected) get their say. Far from watery, this beer comes off thick but leaves medium-bodied and crisp.

I have become a fan of saison and Hennepin is one of the reasons. Very crisp with some features of bubbly. Very dry but the crisp taste is what I like and the reason I frequently enjoy this beer.

On tap at The Half Pint in Greenwich Village. I’ve had this from the bottle and found it much more enjoyable on tap. It was all a saison should be and more! It was lovely to look at, wonderful to smell, and even more amazing to taste. I suppose that’s as to be expected from Ommegang!

Okay. I would probably like it better if I likes saisons, but not one of my favorites.

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.

Enjoyed on tap at Palm Tavern. Pours a rich gold with a thick and lacy white head. Smells of hay, wheat and clover with a slight effervescence. The taste is creamy wheat with a touch of sour and hops. Creamy palate with a lingering finish with some dryness on the mid to back of the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

25/03/2010 Bottle 12oz. From Half Time Beverage, Poughkeepsie. Pours a large creamy head. High carbonation. Aroma is spicy (from hops?), earthy, fruits a little bit. Medium body, biiter a first, then taste is earthy, tart. Not a great Saison, but it fit in the style.
