EDIT: REALLY important to note- there are DIFFERENT types of hennepin, depending if it is brewed in Cooperstown NY or in belgium. The labeling tells you, and I'm not sure if they've standardized it all. The arched front labels are ones brewed in NY- those are GOOD, the standard hennepin that I love. The ones with a flat square label with the words "product of belgium" are NOT good. They taste like Duvel knockoffs- and since Moorgat brews them IN belgium (to keep up with demand since the NY brewery is allegedly too small), it's no suprise. So if you want the TRUE hennepin, u must buy the arched label with NO pouring directions on the side, with NO statement "Product of Belgium".
The one pictured in these reviews for example is the belgian version. Not as good.
tulip, 750ml bottle
A- ridiculous head, huge, soft, pillowy, rocky chunky. Retains forever to the last sip. Light hazy golden straw on careful pour, very minimal lacing which is my only qualm (and may be only due to my glass).
S- Fruity, yeasty nutty, musk, a little peppery spice.
T- lightly sweet pineapple, dri-ish finish (still sweeter than other saisons I've had), yeast, lightly peppery spicy, some earthiness to it.
M- foamy tight carb, creamy, light bodied.
Overall, this is my favorite beer, the first saison I ever had when I started to get into belgians, and the beer I've bought the most of. 750 ml is better than 12oz's I've bought, and it goes down sooo easy and delicious.
EDIT: Having another bottle and pouring it more carefully yields clumpy splotches of lace, thick clumps at that! So got to raise the score again.

Apperance-golden hazy with a beautiful white head that sticks around for a while.
Smell - spicy, orange, hay, funk
Taste- orange, green banana, dry, slightly sour, hides abv very well
Mouthfeel - very nice smooth, full mouth feel
Overall - A lovely beer. Very refreshing, delicious and beautiful to look at. Available at a decent price. Not an easy beer to get where I live but will pick it up when I travel to another city.
