This brew pours a large invigorated white head of finely sized bubbles. It has a Cloudy wheat yellow color with yeast and carbonation rising in it. It has a mild malty hoppy aroma. Its a bit fizzy at first, but it soon dies out. I tasted a mixture of flavors that was unique to this brew. It was a bit chewy, doughy and had a hint of something else. It became very smooth with time. The good buzz I caught afterwards keeps making me raise my rating on this brew.

I should start this review out by saying that I'm quite biased towards the Ommegang Brewery beers- it's one of my favorite breweries, and Hennepin is my favorite beer. However, I will strive to be as honest as possible despite my love of it.
Can I rate this a 6? Please? It's fabulous. It's similar to the regular Hennepin in many ways...it pours a pale gold color, with lots of head- gorgeous. The smell is like Hennepin with more bite- it's sharper.
Taste is, simply, yummy. It's a bit crisper, drier, fruitier than regular Hennepin, and a bit more alcoholic tasting. The mouthfeel is bubbly, medium-bodied, and plays on the palate. Drinkable? You better believe it.
Now, I'm always in the mood for Hennepin- but, I can see this lovely cave-aged version being more of a specific craving. That being said... I can see cravings for this happening frequently. The sad thing is there are only 3360 out there... mine was number 1010. Oh well. Get it while it's there. Yummy, yummy, yummy.

Pours a deep golden color with a white soapy head and great lacing that never goes away. Smells of coriander, orange or lemon zest, and a lot of booze. Tastes of lemon peel, a warming alcohol, hop bitterness, and coriander and black pepper. Mouthfeel is really nice and has a high drinkability.

For this review, 12oz bottle in a tulip glass.
A- Light yellowy-gold color with a massive white head. The head fades to a thick film, serious lacing. This beer is clearly unfiltered.
S- Bananas, pears, light fruits, spices. And two of my favorites: yeasty funk and funky yeast.
T- Belgian style yeast, spices, light fruits. Spicy, a bit peppery.
M- Ebullient. Light, crisp, refreshing. Body without baggage.
O- Spot on for the style. I've drank this many, many times and it always tastes fresh and inviting.
