BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang

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.

Last of a twelve ounce four pack.

Appearance: Pours clean and golden and spurts forth a mountainous off white head. Nice sticky lacing throughout.

Nose: Smells like summer, which is a sour citrus, light hops and hint of apples.

Taste: This was kept a little too cold for my liking so I gave it time to warm up and let some of the flavours loose. Tart lemon zest flavor that moves to a sweeter flavor finishing up with a hint of hops. Generally subtle flavors.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability: Proper carbonation and mid to light bodied. I could have a couple on a hot summer day, but would stop at two.

Notes: Solid all around Saison. Recommended and I like to use it for cooking as well, but it's not a beer I always have on hand.

One of my personal favorites (a now one of my wife's favorites as well).

A: Pale gold, slightly cloudy, with an absolutely huge head

S: Yeasty, estery, with funky spices.

T: A beautiful balance of sweet malts and esters balanced by a nice sharp bitterness and spiciness. Also a nice backdrop of horseblanket that rounds things out. I have to say that even though the bottle says to leave the yeast behind, I think the added yeast really improves the character, making everything softer and mellower.

M: A great creamy/spritzy combo that works well with food.

D: So refreshing, so complex, a beer for almost any occassion.

Dark golden color, with a white head. Head dissapates quickly, but carbonation continuously replenishes it. Aroma and taste contain honey, spice, and citrus. Highly carbonated, very crisp, and drinkable.

This is a great beer for the price, $4.50 for 750ml in Indianapolis.
