Hennepin - awesome label had to try the good stuff

Appearance - apricot orange with a good hazy texture to it

Smell - Fresh wheat, light fruit, and overall great beer scent for a wheat beer

Taste - Exceptional! Light and tasty that grows into a hearty thirst quenching after taste. Has hints of some seasonal fruit, but none to distinct that it takes over the flavor.

Mouthfeel - I wish it had some more carbonation to keep the great flavor going.

Overall - A nice, nice beer

Really diggin' the Belgian funk!
Light and crisp
Wet Hay, Barnyard Funk, HorseBlanket, Grassy
Not excessively malty or hoppy
Smooth and quite sessionable...

Copied from stxp:

appearance: whitish gold, champagne, high carbonation, slightly hazy

smell:slight butterscotch, belgian yeasty, bubble gum, banana, some phenol

taste: cloves right up front, slightly bland phenols in the middle, alchoholic on the end, slightly dry finish, almost no hoppyness

mouthfeel: starts a bit thin, gets thick in the middle due to high carbonation, creamy, alcohol punch only comes out right at the finish

overall: love the ommegang belgian yeasts, great clove spicyness, minimal bitterness, smooth despite almost 8%, very drinkable

(4.0) A: Hazy and golden with a very tall creamy eggshell coloured foam head with intermingled sporadic bubbles. Very good retention and lacing.

(4.5) S: Banana, pineapple/passion fruit, bubblegum, cloves, belgian-style yeast, pepper, and cane sugar. Very pleasant and enticing. Appropriate proportions of each aroma that come together extremely well.

(4.0) T: Similar to aroma with ripe and sweet tropical fruits coupled with spice including a bitter pepper taste. A refreshing taste of earthy dry grasses with some floral hints. Enjoying how the emphasis isn’t on the sweet side, but rather on the dry and bitter spice side of the spectrum.

(4.5) M: Medium bodied with a moderate/tingling carbonation. Chalky (in a good way) with a bit of chewy character. Lingering dry and bitterness. Wonderful stuff.

(4.5) D: A delicious farmhouse that really brings all the best qualities of the style together.

Poured into my Duvel tulip.

Appearance: Bright sparkling yellow with a big frothy head of about 3” which recedes to about 1/2”, an abundance of sticky lacing.

Smell: Citrus and spice with a bit of hoppy aroma.

Taste: Nice diversity of flavor, the citrus and spice are noticeable, there is no “piney” character imparted by the hops just the citrus and a pleasant bitterness in the finish. No “funk” really which is what I expected from a saison. A flavorful (delicious) pale ale is the best description of this brew. The alcohol is completely un-noticeable.

Mouth feel: Heavily carbonated which means it’s very clean and crisp on the palate.

Overall: Very good beer, as I’ve said extremely flavorful. In fact this beer has reignited my interest in the saison style.
