Having toured Howe's Cavern just hours before, I was very excited to try the beer that had been aged there at a constant 52 degrees for a year. It didn't take much enticing of our guide get a taste after the tour of the Brewery Ommegang.
Compared to the regular Hennepin, the Cave Aged was thicker, richer and a little sweeter. The regular already is a world champion but the Cave Aged which was 2 years old (bottle still covered in authentic cave dust) was so much richer and more complex than the regular Hennepin.
The beer was Saison but with the complexity of a good dubble. Get it while you can as new owners of Howe's Cavern no longer let Ommegang age beer there.

Poured from a bottle into a Boulevard Brewery, Kansas City, MO, standard pint glass.
A: Thick and cloudy yellowish with tinges of green. Nice body of color with some nice lacing and head, lots of very small, fine floating bits from the sediment in the glass (not too distracting, thankfully).
S: Very high in citrus and green apple with a hop body. Some alcohol and yeast backbone. A good aroma.
T: Lemon and floral hops, green apple finish with some mild bitterness. Very light malt body. Little bit of light sweetness, not much bite. Rosey finish.
M: Very crisp and clean, nice and drinkable. Fairly strong beer, but doesn't feel like it.
O: Another very good selection from Ommegang, who is currently averaging a wonderfully high rating for me. Probably the most consistent and highest average brewery I've reviewed. Hennepin must be my least favorite beer from them so far, but it is still a very good brew that would be nice to drink on a mild summer afternoon.
