Hazy deep straw color with a lot of orange to it. Bright white 1-finger head with medium retention and light lacing in the glass.
Kind of funky on the nose in a good way: orange peel, lemon zest, coriander, grain, mint, white flowers and the thread of a light sour lactic note that pulls through everything.
Old world feel from the new world with a light hop funk, white pepper, earthiness, white flowers and celery seed. Light bitterness allows the palate to keep deep earthy tones and still feel clean on the finish.
Medium bodied. The carbonation is a little aggressive in the mouthfeel, giving the beer a slightly frothy texture. A very faint hint of alcohol on the finish.
Nicely done. Surprised that the carbonation was as aggressive as it was on the palate based on the appearance, but there are several things going on with the beer. Solid execution of the style.

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.
