look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy medium golden in color, with a massive, dense white head, which retains superbly. Massive streams of ultra-fine carbonation drift lazily to the surface. The lacing is thick and fully coats the glass walls.

Aroma: Prominent alcohol, medicinal notes, paired with light fruit notes of apples, particularly apple peels, and pears. Faint clove notes are present as well.

Taste: Opens with light fruit notes, old apples and pears, a little fruit rind bitterness, lots of spicy notes, white pepper and cloves. The alcohol is mellow, spicy, and slightly sweet and omnipresent in the taste. As the taste progresses, some earthy hop notes appear, these help to bring the taste to a graceful close.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A superb example of this style, one which demonstrates that magnificent examples of Belgian styles can be brewed in the US. Certainly a superb choice for a cool fall day. For me, this beer embodies the joyous celebration of a bountiful harvest.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass longneck bottle, served in a Sam Adams Boston Lager glass.

The Hennepin was bottle conditioned so it poured with plenty of head and a “majestic golden hue”. Once I fought through the head to get a taste I was rewarded with a beer that has a nice creamy texture but was very light on the palate which is as advertised. There were citrusy notes that added a bit of pep on the tongue and created an all-around excellent beer.
