BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

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.
