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.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a light, lively fluffy head that doesn’t last long. The nose is full of sweet citrus mostly a orange flavor. The beer has a very dry mouth feel that is unexpectedly hoppy. The taste is a mix of yeast and sweet citrus. The beer has nice lasting bitter finish. This is a great example of a Belgium beer done the right way outside of Belgium.

Smells like champagne to me. Pours yellow gold with a cream colored head. Tastes sweet...distinct belgian yeast taste....some clove in the aftertaste. Smooth on the palate.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 Hazy bright yellow with white head. Very crisp with light fruitiness. A little tart, with some malt in the finish. Pleasant Belgian spice. Super drinkable and refreshing. Very nice summer drink. Some lemon. Might pair well with grilled meat.

from Kingdom Liquors, Brandon - tried this after the Unibroue 15 so it was lacking in taste in comparison, bubbly white head, spicy with my citrus flavors, light bodied, little bitter and dry at the end. Not bad!

From Umami Burger in New York Large white head with a golden head. I think the smell is a bit better than the taste thanks to the extra caramel/sweetness. Quite hoppy. Super refreshing with some orange and a kick of spices but nothing overwhelms. Quite bitter at the end but very refreshing and there is a bit of sweetness to balance out it. Not taste of alcohol. Excellent Saison

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2006 Light gold pour with a thick head. Smells are subtle: malt and spice. The first sips are a bit watery, but you notice some spiciness. A pepper, citrus and yeasty taste. More flavor comes out as it warms. The finish is a sour grapefruit. Overall, it is a decent ale

Hazy yellow with a big head. Aroma and taste of that familiar Belgian yeast. Fruity. A delicious beer.
