Poured into 10oz glass. Poured a semi-hazy light golden yellow with a very active, tall, fluffy, bright white head that had very good retention and lacing.

The aroma is a very pleasant blend of grain, yeast and spice. On the tongue those aspects are bolder, crisper and better focused. The flavors meshed very well and a nice all-around flavor was the result.

The body crisp and sharp, with a nice semi-dry finish. Drinkability was excellent, as is typical for the style. Overall, this is a very nice example of the style and is certainly worth seeking out if you haven't already.

Ommegang Hennepin is my taste of the saison style. I quite enjoyed it as I continue to explore the various Belgian styles.

A: Pale straw colored and hazy. Nice white head that disapates quickly. Little or no lacing.

S: Smells mild. No hops or floral of any kind. Sweet malts and sour yeast are present.

T: Follows smell. Malts and yeast are the predominant tastes. Little to no bitterness. Alcohol finishes slightly warming.

M&D: Medium body and clean mouthfeel. Very drinkable.
