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.

I'd rate this a great summer beer. The hazy gold color looks pleasant in a pint glass, and its fizziness would go down well on any hot, humid evening. Overall, I found it happily undemanding-- the taste is not so complex, but I enjoyed the straw and honey flavors, with some fruitiness as well. Definitely worth drinking again. And again. Love the bottle, too. I have yet to go wrong with Ommegang.

Medium copper color, large head. Hoppy floral nose. Nice carbonation. Mildly hopped, spicy, slightly malted. Some yeastiness and some fruitiness. Light and refreshing. Yeasty flavor. Finish is light. Aftertaste is slightly fruity with some hoppyness, not bitter. This beer carries it 7.5% alcohol well.

A- medium to large head that stayed until the very end. Dirty golden color that is cloudy with yeast.

S- Fruity smell with hints of citrus and even bannana. Also smelled yeasty.

T- As with the smell you can taste the fruity nature of the beer. You can recognize citrus and I even tasted a hint of bannana. It also has a slight sour taste to it.

M- The fruity flavor stays with you but is not overwhelming. It has a light feel to it. Very drinkable.

D- I liked this beer and initally tried it because it it the America sister brewery to Duvel and it was the strong ale version. Having said that you can tell a distinction between the two, while both are very strong ABV this one seems to be heavier even though it is not as strong. This was a good beer and I would drink it again but given the choice between the two I would pick Duvel everytime.
