COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 Poured from a bottle into a trappist glass, the beer looks really nice with a substantial head and golden color, aroma is floral, yeast, a good amount of carbonation, taste is citrus, mild pepper and bitterness, the alcohol does come through at the back end but enjoyable...

Gorgeously frothy head that never recedes and unmistakeably Belgian yeasty bursts accompany this crisp golden ale -- we’ve arrived at Duvel v2. I know they call it a Saison, but for the life of me I can’t think of why. Immensely quaffable, but didn’t we already have Den Duvel?

12 oz bottle. Strong yeasty aroma and taste. The body was a murky yellow, with a decent head. I didnt really go for the taste though, some strange off-flavors that seemed to hinder the taste of the brew. Perhaps a bad bottle

355 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a billowing head. Complex spicy aroma with hints of pepper and lemon. Light crisp body with lively carbonation. Dry finish with fruity body and a balance slightly to the hoppy side.

Being new to the style, I cant say how it compares to others. I will say it is a very enjoyable beer. Pours a pale golden color with a frothy white head. Nose is earthy...a funky yeasty taste is in the flavor as well. Fruity and tart with a nice mouthfeel. A very enjoyable brew.

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2005
UPDATED: APR 23, 2005 Hazy blonde color. Powerful almost pungent but semi-pleasant aroma of hops & fruit. Apply-raisin and bubbly dry sensation. A good introduction to the Saisons for me. Enjoyable, but more interesting than anything. [$3.99/25oz]

From bottle. Pours hazy light gold, very lively. Big fluffy white head that sticks around leaving strong lacing once eventualy dissipated. Banana, passion fruit, bread and hay malts on the nose. Sweet and fruity in the mouth, with citrus and some ginger spice mixed in with the barnyard yeastiness. Bitterness afterwards. Has a light-medium body and very lively fizzing on the tongue. Really nice overall.

*12 oz. bottle* Look: Hazy golden blonde body, 1 1/2 finger white soapy head. Smell: Tart citrus, spices, hay, yeasty, hints of earthy quality tobacco, mild funk. Taste: Tart citrus (Lemon peel) wheat and oats, honey, hint of a fruit (pear), sweet and dry and slightly sour. Feel: Medium-light body, very active carbonation. Overall: This is very delicious. One of the prime examples of the style. I have no problem drinking a four pack of this all Summer/Fall long. For it being almost 8% it isnt detectable. This brew is recommended.
