750ml bottle poured into an Ommegang tulip.

Appearance
Cloudy straw/gold with 3-4 fingers of fluffy white head. Excellent retention with low carbonation.

Nose
Pear, apple, dough, lemon, hay, clove, pilsner malt and a hint of potpourri.

Taste
Pear, golden delicious apple and lemon pith. Pilsner malts, wheat and doughy bread. The yeast is very spicy and quite funky. Dried hay, potpourri and hints of barnyard. Clove, black pepper and coriander. Finishes with grassy noble hops and a suggestion of apricot.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, dry and refreshing.

Overall
Very complex and easily accessible Saison. Definitely one of the better American renditions of the style.

Its been several year since I last tried this beer. I remember that I liked it, but I am not a fan of saisons so I haven't been tempted. This was included in their Christmas pack this year and I am glad it was.

It seems like most of the saisons I have tried are made with Brett yeast and/or are too dry for my taste. The hennepin is like a tripel, very flavorful, none of the other weird flavors that seem to be common with saisons.

I poured it into a st berdnardus goblet and it looks great in the glass. Nice thick white head. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice flavor. I will have to pick this up more frequently.
