Celebrating some new glassware, this brew is poured into THE Hennepin footed bulb... and forms a thick, foamy cloud that traces quite well.... body is a sediment-laden transparent orange-brown head... handosme and stout.... floral notes with grape and soft hops--a bit of lemon and something sweet... inviting... medium-bodied, lively on the tongue and effervescent on the mouth.... more than drinkable, but slightly more alcoholic than the average saison... fresh, crisp, hoppy in a soft citric way--somewhat tart but not candied or false--a bit of vanilla? a bit of malt in the aftertaste, but complex with some grapefruit elements... by mid-glass, hennepin setlles into a groove of Belgian elegance that belies its nationality... the Ommegang presentation two years ago at the PSU Brew Fest made this beer even more attractive--and it flirts like a true Abbey (Williams!) ale, but pulls back and only offers a soft eye--that, I can live with....

Traditional looking Belgian. Golden straw in color, but unfiltered so it's hazy and full of particulates. A bright thick white head sits up top.

The nose is happy. Cloves and coriander dance with orange peel.

The mouth is happy too. Those same spices greet the tongue, along with that same orange peel, and some peppery notes.

Mouthfeel is fantastic. It's crisp and refreshing, almost cleansing. Despite all the spices, it's a gentle feeling that seemingly cleans your palate.

A simple beer to drink. It tastes good and provides a crisp feeling as it goes down. Despite the spices and high alcohol, there's no burning whatsover, it actually seems to cool you. Would make a great beer for warm or cold weather.
