Pours pale yellow... excellent clarity for a wheat.

Very sour, earthy aroma

Tastes sweet, honey with citrus, balanced with a crisp carbonation, finishing with a lingering wheaty tart/sourness... very refreshing.

Great wheat, balanced, yet extreme.

A: pretty light yellow in color with a big head that settles down nicely.

S: Fresh citrus fruit with a nice yeastiness about it. Very inviting.

T: A very nice tasting beer. Light up front with a nice mild spiciness. Finishes with the taste of lemon peel and a bit of that yeast I smelled.

M: Sparkling and light. Goes down rather easy.

D: I bottle these in the small 12 oz, bottles but could but down a big boy with ease.

Overall: A great domestic version of a Saison. Summer is the season to enjoy a saison and this one is thirst quenching. I just finished cooking burgers on the grill and popped this one open. Like peanut butter goes with jelly, Hennepin goes with charred flesh (burgers), summer, and good times.
