A growler filled at Al's of Hampden on 23-Apr-10. Hennepin is on record as being my favorite. It was also in the running for my newborn daughter's middle name (although it wasn't the winner).

A: The saison is crystal clear, a pale golden straw color that radiates. If I didn't know any better, I'd call it a pale lager due to the hue. A full head, over 2 fingers, is lacing in thick clumps.

S: The nose is refreshingly sharp, hoppy with a fresh dose of Belgian yeast. Mild fruitiness and black pepper jump out, both subtle but unmistakable. Grapes (white, of course) and a teaspoon of funk round out the nose, alongside a brief earthy hop aroma.

T: Each sip is deliciously sweet, lightened up by fleshy fruits (think pears, peaches, apples). A dose of anise follows the fruit, a dry sharp contrast to the sugary fruit. Coriander adds a black pepper flavor, a bite against the sweetness. Throughout, the saison is light and refreshing. Clove and pear appear near the finish. Near the end of the growler, the carbonation tapers off, allowing the fruits to linger much longer than normally.

M: The mouthfeel is sweet, with a heavy dose of yeasty fruits. Hops linger around but never get in the way of the pale fruits.

D: The ale nails every aspect, sweet and dry, sharp but lush. It's been my favorite for years and this growler is no exception.
