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.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to snifter glass.

A: Hazy yellow golden, very active carbonation keeps a thick white head at the top.
S: Yeast, clove, citrus notes, sweet malt.
T: Sweet. Light malt is embellished by savory spices of clove, ginger, and cinnamon. Strong notes of lemongrass and orange as well. Alcohol is hidden, and gives depth to the beer. Heavy carbonation.
M: Medium. Carbonated.
O: Reminds me of a blue moon, but much better. Spicy and flavorful. Will definitely get again.

Pours a light straw yellow with a very fizzy head. The smell has a bit of spice up front but settles into yeast and fresh bread with some light citrus. The taste was very nice, almost champagne like with hints of banana as well as fresh baked bread. The feel was a bit overly fizzy but it was a great beer overall. Would highly recommend.

Champagne like highly carbonated pale pilsner pour with light fruits & spices. The palate and finish is very dry.
