Pours out a cloudy gold color with a some yeast particles floating around. The fluffy white head is massive and kind of chunky. There is just something about that yeast from Duvel. The head retains in the glass as a think blanket until the last drop. Lacing from the ale leaves some rings around the glass.

The aroma is light, crisp, and full of citrus hints. Lemon peal, white grape, and yeast.

The crisp tart citrus flavors hint the palate first. Lemon peal, even a hint orange peal pull through the almost white grape sweetness from the alcohol. On the other side, I get a soft yeast roll flavor from the malt. The hop and spice are light. Hints of coriander and a mild bitterness from the hop.

Light in bodied and despite the ABV % very refreshing

This would be a perfect ale to drink in the warmer months amongst friends for any occasion. Thumbs up from me!

Interesting and telling... after having this beer over a dozen times, and never pausing to review it, it's either a testament to pure drinkability and enjoyment, or my serial absent-mindedness.

Hennepin pours into a Duvel tulip with an ample head of creamy white foam that leaves concentric rings of lace in the glass. There's an ever-present skim on the surface, at least a few cm thick. Bright and saturated color, pure bubbly sunshine.

Signature Belgian yeast at first, lightly citrusy and musty, with herbal notes of tea leaves, coriander, and sage.

Grassy tea-like hops emerge in the flavor as well, alongside peppery Belgian yeast phenols and dry crackery malt. Finishes very dry with a lightly bitter edge. Seemingly simple on the surface but well nuanced in flavor and aroma. It has a prickly feel, well carbed, and easily degassed after swirling the glass a few times. Quite a thirst-quencher, and it pairs exceptionally well with charcuterie.

"Hennepin. It goes with everything!" ...Sorry, old joke.
