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.

I am shocked that I have not reviewed this to date. A wonderful saison style beer from Ommegang. Straw yellow with a slight bit of haze (from the bottle conditioning?) with a great aroma of yeast esters, spices (white pepper? gop?). The taste is spicy with esters and some sweetness for balance. High carbonation and nice frothy head. Overall a very enjoyable saison.

12 ounce bottle. Hazy auburn gold color. Firm frothy beige head. Earthy, yeasty grainy malt nose. Tart, sweet and refreshing. Notes of crusty bread, grassy hops and earthy malt. Some citrus fruit flavor, with notes of vanilla and spice. Crisp, dry finish. Excellent balance of malt and hops. Delicious.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 Sweet aroma, a combination of a saison and a belgian ale. Floral perfume, hay, honey. Taste is sweet and lightly bitter. Grass, honey, quite belgian-triple-ish. Quite sweet, nothing special.

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...

mead-like effervescence followed by expected saison qualities of fruitiness, slight sour and balanced tones of hops/malt. amazing saison, amazing presentation in bottle design. will impress company.
