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 Saisons. 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.

12oz. bottle poured into a tulip-style glass. It pours a hazy gold color with almost 3 fingers of foam. There is lots of thick lacing left on the glass. The smell is a bit spicy, with some cinnamon and fruity and nutty aromas as well. The taste is kind of fruity, kind of spicy, and kind of hoppy. A really good balanced blend of flavors. It is just the slightest bit dry. The mouthfeel is fairly full and bold. At 7.5%, this is fairly drinkable too. What a bargain!

This beer poured a cloudy yellow with a great big pillowy head. Looks delicious. The aroma is a fruity citrus with a yeasty a smell.
The taste is amazing. A lot of banana like esters with a little bit of orange or citrus zing. The flavor makes it very easy to give this beer a swish. Great mouthfee. Moderate carbonation on this one. You'll know when you pop the cork. Great drinkability. Thanks for sending me this one Weare138.
