look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A - Slightly hazy, dull golden color. Four fingers of beautiful, white head with excellent retention. Lots of thick lacing. I'm not sure you could improve on this...
S - Faint earthiness combined with underwhelming citrus. Pepper, phenols, and lemon. The smell becomes much more pronounced as the beer warms up a bit.
T - The lemon and citrus fruits hit you first. Just the right amount of dryness, tart, and earthy flavor. Nice, pepper and phenol aftertaste
M - crisp, medium mouthfeel
O - Another stellar choice from Ommegang. After trying a biere-de-mars, I didn't think I would ever like anything this dry and earthy. But this is so complex, yet balanced. Very drinkable. I went through the 750 mL bottle way too fast.

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.
