3.86/5 rDev -7.2%
A - Golden straw yellow with a head so big I couldn't even pour the beer into my glass all at once.
S - Fruity, floral, phenolic, fresh bread dough, lemon grass.
T - Fruity - pears, raisin, banana peel, light sweetness, highly carbonated mouthfeel, bitter finish.
O - Very solid beer that makes me want to try more Saisons. Definitely worth a go.

S - 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
A - Bright cloudy yellow with thick pure white head and substantial lacing.
N - Smells of sweet pine, orange peel, grass and yeast.
T - First I get a orange zest taste followed shortly there after by a peppery spice. Malt and hops in the end. The alcohol is well hidden behind the flavor profile.
M - Near perfect carbonation. Aftertaste is pleasantly clean and does not linger.
O - Not my favorite style as I usually enjoy hoppier beers, but Hennepin is a crisp and refreshing representative of the style. I will most likely drink this beer again in the future.

Side poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
Appearance - Pours a nice golden color with a big thick, pillowy head of about two fingers that had great retention, probably more than five minutes. I love the bottles that Ommegang uses, very unique and cool.
Smell - Bananas and spices, some citrus from the hops, yeast, and cloves round out the smell. Not as pronounced of a smell as something like Orval, but a well balanced nose that is quality.
Taste - Follows the nose, although a little more subdued. The spices and yeast make their appearance, finishing with a touch of hops.
Mouthfeel - Finishes smooth, easy to drink this beer. Medium carbonation with a fairly dry finish.
Overall - This is a good beer, nothing spectacular, but good. I would rather have a couple of the other Saisons instead, but there is nothing wrong with this one. It just doesn't really leave the "wow" impression taht I look for out of a Beer of Fame.

Pours a pale semi transparent yellow with an impressive white foamy head. The head is bright and fluffy like vanila ice cream.
The smell is lemons and yeast. Smell very fresh, like a lemon desert.
The flavour is similar to smell, a little tart and bitter.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation .
This is nice tasting beer, light and refreshing, would be nice in the summer. Hides its abv completely.
