The color is a cloudy coppery amber. A chunky, dense white head retains well and leaves some patches of thick lacing behind.
Grains and yeast are first on the nose with an herbal sort of earthiness underlying and citrus notes.
There's a nice dynamic between a light thick touch of honey and zesty citrus, also complimented by a gentle peppery spice underneath. This one's all purity, complexity and balance. There's a raw, leafy earthiness on the palate also. A biscuity malt serves as the backbone, but all the flavors are completely complimentary. A delicious brew.
The body is medium and the mouthfeel is a balance of crisp and smooth.
It's really a tough call between this and Dupont if you're deciding between which saison to go with, though in the end I Hennepin the edge. This one is absolutely a delight to drink.

Hennepin pours a nice golden peach color with a bit of a haze. Massive fluffy head seems to be lingering quite well. great lace. nose is wonderful wheat and barnyard funk. Clearly some strong spice in here as well. Great hard saison taste. Very pronounced wheat and yeast flavor with good peppery spiciness. This is no Dupont but it is quite good. At this point the haze is starting to fade a little bit from warmth, but is still very present. Flavors are becoming earthier at this point. The aftertaste has some nice banana notes. The mouthfeel is slightly abrasive on the tongue, but overall quite good. Drinkability is solid on this one, and is impressive. Overall this is a great saison style, certainly one of the best in america. Props to ommegang, I think this is my favorite brew from them.

12oz bottle

App: Light golden/straw with a perfect amount of haze. Small streams of bubbles rise to a thick, frothy head.

Smell: Apricots and apples with a hint of champagne sweetness. Sour and peppery yeast. A hint of husky malt, perhaps wheat?

Taste: The beer changes flavor throughout the sip. It starts with a biting carbonation that is taken over by the tartness of the yeast. A slight sweet flavor (pear and orange) follows that is taken by a hop and malt bite. The taste dries on the tongue and leaves a sweet, husky malt behind with a bit of lingering bitterness.
