4.18/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Hennepin is a cloudy, hazy yellow color with about 3 fingers of thick, fluffy white head. When it reduces there is still a great deal of fine lacing. It looks gorgeous.
Smell: Cloves and banana are prevalent. Maybe just a bit of citrus and the slightest of hop scents.
Taste: A really nice taste of citrus, cloves, banana, pineapple, and earthy flavors. Just a little funk and hops at the end. It is a soft, slightly dry finish, pleasant and very tasty.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, with just the right amount of carbonation. It is incredibly smooth and tasty going down.
Drinkability: It isn't too heavy or thick, and the flavor completely outweighs the alcohol. I would drink this as often as possible.
Serving type: bottle

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.
