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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a cloudy golden yellow color, topped with a small white head. Smell is yeasty with some pepper and grass notes, as well as something a bit musty? The carbonation explodes in your mouth with TONs of little bubbles. Very crisp and refreshing. Taste is sweet and peppery in the beginning then finishes a bit dry with a nice hop background.

I really like this beer but I have to say I think I prefer the Ommegang and Rare Vos over this. Just my opinion.
