A: Clear apple juice colour with some minimal but rapid carbonation bubbles. Frothy 3 fingers of white head that settled to a thin cap.

S: Up front floral and grass notes with sweet hits of lemon peel and coriander. Also some yeasty sweet bread and light malts.

T: Less sweet that the scent with yeasty bread and grassy earthiness. Taste of mild malts and a crisp clean dry finish.

M: Clean, crisp and dry with a upfront sting of carbonation. Maybe a little heavy carbonation, but that's my personal preference.

O: This dry brew is easy to drink, easy to enjoy and easy to pour another. The mix of malts and hops with a dry finish makes this a refreshing treat, uncomplicated and straight froward.

Hennepin, just hit shelves in Texas today, had to pick some up.

Hennepin pours straw yellow, with vigorous amounts of carbonation. Large solid fluffy white head retains with ease. Smell is dominated with a funky yeastiness, and various spices, deep and complex smell overall with some fruit esters popping through.

Taste is neutral enough for Hennepin to be chugged down on a hot day.Yet, complex enough to be enjoyed throughly anytime of the year.

An influx of spicy and unrelenting hops build a beautiful foundation for all the flavors to come. Intense earthiness along with a dry spiciness throughout with ginger accents on the fringes. The ginger works perfectly with the dry spiciness. The yeast is providing a lot of the flavor as well, especially the earthiness. A hint of citrus peel is thrown into the mix about halfway through, giving lead way to the flawless finish. Hennepin finishes with that spiciness lingering, albeit now much more refined then the start. It's almost as this beer starts untamed, and then at the end of your sip you have taken it into captivity.

I have to say one of the best parts about this beer, is the truly decedent mouthfeel. Flawless.

Hennepin is a delicious, world-class Saison, that simply must not be missed. Definitely recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: A nicely hazy golden-straw body with three fingers of slightly off-white, bubbly head that sticks around and leaves good lacing.

Aroma: A honeyish malt body with fruity (golden fruit, citrus, and banana), yeasty, and spicy (clove, coriander, and pepper) notes. Some traces of booze, but not much.

Taste: Up front, a sweet pale malt character with fruit, spice, and ever-so-mild molasses twinge towards the end. It's somewhat sour and dries towards the end. Hints of alcohol in the end, in just the right proportion. It may not the most complex flavor profile, but it's quite satisfying.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied and smooth with good carbonation. Crisp with a dry finish.

Drinkability: Generally good, but reined in a little by the moderately-high alcohol content.

Verdict: Hennepin is a great beer to sit down with an enjoy on a peaceful Summer evening. It may not be the most complex Saison out there, but it's still well worth a try.

Pours a nice slightly hazy golden yellow, with a frothy white long-lasting head. Lacing all over the glass. The aroma is grassy with a fruity/citrusy note. Peppery, spicy hop bitterness, but very pleasant. Not too sour. Finishes smooth and dry, but with a lingering spicy/peppery aftertaste. Overall, I find this to be a great summertime brew, especially on those hot afternoons.
