A: Poured a hazy pale dark yellow. A steady stream of bubbles raced up to a creamy thick head. The head persisted over the entire glass.
S: Classic Belgian esters and phenolics. Slight grain. No hop aromas.
T: Classic Belgian esters and phenolics. Sweet grain. Some flavor notes. Perfectly balanced hop bitterness. No hop flavor.
M: Spritzy. Very carbonated. The beer has just enough residual sweetness to balance the carbonation without being dry or cloying. Right on for the style.
O: Excellent example of the style. It's not my favorite style but I give it high marks for accuracy and execution. I would highly recommend.

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.
