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

4.04/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours with three fingers of bubbly white head. Active carbonation is huge. Color is a light straw yellow. Sticky lacing left behind as head very slowly dissipated.
Smell: Pears, spices, bananas, and semi-sweet bready malts greet the drinker. There is some very dry pepper, and ashy notes on the body. Earth and dirt mesh with some light hop notes on the back end. Wow a lot going on here.
Taste: Touches of pepper and airy spices hit on the front first. Bread, sweet dough, and some salty hops show up on the body. More sweet malts ride through on the finish and some lingering spices go well together.
Mouthfeel: Bright carbonation with pleasant transitions of spice and sweet malts.
Overall: A great American saison. The pepper and dryness is heavier then I expected but this overall is a slow sipper that is easy to enjoy.
