750ml corked bottle poured into a pint glass.
L: Straw yellow.
A touch cloudy.
White, meringue like head that lingers a while.
S: Lemon/citrus scent.
T: Tastes like lemonade with strong fruity esters.
Ends with a slight bitterness, like orange zest.
F: Body is medium to thin.
Highly carbonated which complements the tartness.
O: I'm drinking this after lunch, outdoors, on a day that is 84F. This really hits the spot!

1pt. 9.4oz [750ml] corked and caged brown bottle

Bottled on 8/7/2013 - best by 8/2015

Ommegang Hennepin Farmhouse Saison poured out into my tulip glass a cloudy/hazy bright golden hue. Atop sat a 2-finger white fluffy head that had good staying power and formed numerous collars of foam while consuming. Fine carbonation bubbles rushed to the top - champagne like.

The nose is fruity, peppery and yeasty. The taste is of light fruit; orange peel, candy sugar, spicy and peppery. Mouth feel is creamy with fizzy carbonation that tickles the palate. The ale finishes a little dry.

Hennepin is very drinkable and a fine brew from a top shelf brewer Ommegang.
