BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This style is a farmhouse ale, and is considered to be in the domain of the Belgian Ssaisons. Hennepin is a delicious brew for all seasons; it is spicy and refreshing.

A moderately hoppy, farmhouse-style ale with a champagne-like effervescence, Hennepin has a crisp start followed by malt sweetness balanced with a firm bitterness. Hennepin has a bounty of great flavors: ginger, spice, orange and toasted grain. Pouring a bright golden color with a spicy-sweet balance of orange peel, sweet malt, hops and ginger, Hennepin makes way for a dry finish with a slight bite of ginger.

Purchased at the LCBO in a 4pk of 12oz bottles- $13.10

A- Very good. Opened well and poured a nice light foamy head that stayed for minutes

S- WOW this is the best yeasty beer I have had in a while. Have had a few Saison but this one is fantastic.

T- Almost as good as it smells. This brewery has it going on. Yeast, malt, floral hints from coriander. Slightly sour.

M- Creamy. Slight bitterness but only at first sip. Saison

O- Excellent! Very good. Had a bomber I bought in Buffalo that I just didn't want to open and now I know what I got.... Will hold that baby for a bit.

Food Pairing

This wonderful Saison paired well with... chicken in a mushroom sauce

Enjoy!

Pours a hazy light yellow with tons of head. Nice soapy lacing down the glass. Smells of wheat and banana in the nose. There is a hint of spice notes as well. Tastes of sweet malt, spices, whole wheat and definitely more than a hint of alcohol. This is a very refreshing wheat beer although I feel it's a little over carbonated for my taste.
