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.

750ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) shared by JK54B - thanks!
Hazy pale orange, small persistent tight head. Sharp sour fruity aroma - citrus. Soft palate, pleasant carbonation. Tangy hops, but a little cardboardy. Sharp citrus too, and apple, but also some alcohol. Passable saison, but not great.

Ferris (15275) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle - Sweet yeast, a little boozy and banana. Clear gold with a frothy white head. Primarily booze and yeast with some slight sour notes. Aftertaste is a slight burn from the alcohol and bananas. The alcohol I taste throughout is just not my cup of tea, or beer.

bhensonb (15194) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 21, 2007
Aroma of yeast and citrus, perhaps some grass. A little lemon? Slightly translucent light gold color with a white real ale head that is ferocious (and laces). Starts with lemony citrus, yeast, banana?, and cardamom? Decent frothy mouthfeel. The finish is a bit herbal with spice and light hop bitter. Seems very well balanced. Quite tasty.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle at home - club tasting. Cleay pilsner yellow - white head. Yeasty, youghurt, fruity, light citric, citric sour, a bit mellow for a saison - it needs some crispness, freshness and sharpness.
