2013 re-review in a 12oz bottle - identical to the 750ml review in 2010. Great consistency!
A - Golden hay. Thick frothy head.
S - Very mild. Light yeast, grassy, with some floral notes.
T - Light malt, wildflower honey. A split second touch of hops in the mid profile as it mellows into a soft grain finish.
M - Smooth but buttery.
O - A nice accessible saison.

A- Poured a golden and slightly hazy with great billowy head. Head subsided to thin film with good lacing.
S- Smells slightly bready. More pronounced citrus and floral notes.
T- Tastes wonderful. Nice light spice and yeastiness with bread and fruit overtones. Slight bitterness at the end.
M- Medium body with medium to high carbonation, finishes quite dry.
Great saison, I would recommend this beer to anyone.

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.
