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.

An awesome saison. Pours a straw yellow with a big frothy head. Nose is yeast, lemon peel, coriander, peppery spice and some funk. Flavor is same lemon and pepper goodness with some brett presence. Finish is lingering citrus bitter. An exemplar of the style and VERY refreshing.

Palme (4667) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2017
On tap @ Fools Gold. This is a mild blurry looking goldenish colored one with a nice medium sized hefty lacing white head on the top. Smells nice with a slightly lemonic sour mild theme. Lime zest and some soft yeast. Blue grapes and pear also in here. Nice. Its sweeter in the taste than the aroma. Nice and oily on the texture and about average on the small prickling carbonation bubbles. Refreshing and saison typical in the taste. A bit on the sweeter side perhaps. More pear and melon, a little bit of hay. Soft white peppery tail. Good stuff. 20.06.2015

This is my first Belgian Saison style recommended by a cousin who likes Belgians. It was very, very good, really enjoyed it. Golden color, nice head, medium body, noticeably sweet and hoppy. Definitely going to try this again.
