12oz bottle poured in to a pint glass.

Cloudy straw yellow color with a big, fluffy, bone-white head.The head stuck around for a long time and left some very nice lacing.

Yeast and some sweeter citrus in the nose. Lemongrass, pineapple, and a little bit of fun and booze.

Citrus, fruit, and funk are up front in the flavor. The flavor then turns hoppy and spicy. It then has a nice clean finish of clove and yeast.

Medium bodied and very carbonated. Not overly dry and a crisp, clean finish.

Another great beer from Ommegang. Highly drinkable and refreshing. Could possibly be a new summer favorite for me.

Welcome this is a farmhouse...ale

Ommegang Hennepin is a Farmhouse Ale, that could also be classified as a Saison. The brew pours a pale gold with a HUGE white head that required several pours, before settling to leave a thick lace. Banana and clove dominate the nose at first, but settle into other aromas including some grainiess, citrus, and slight funkiness. Complex flavors erupt on the pallet! Citrus and floral notes intermingle with hints of wheat, spice, clove, lemon and funk, to name a few. This beer finishes clean and dry, with a medium body and high level of carbonation. As with all the other Brewery Ommegang beers we have had the opportunity to review, Hennepin is an amazing example of Belgian-style brewing in America. World-Class!

750 poured into a De Struise glass that looks like the one they print on the back of the bottle.

This thing is carbonated! Bright golden body that would probably be totally transparent if it weren’t for the rush of bubbles. The big white head just kept growing after I poured.

Banana, citrus, grass, and pepper in the nose. Not much phunk.

Citrus and grass are very prominent in the taste. Pepper and clove type spice character. Little banana and a general fruitiness. Slightly tart.

Lots of bubbles. Light body. Super dry.

I dig super bubbly bottle conditioned Belgians but holy crap I have never seen so many bubbles in a beer. It settles after a couple minutes though and makes for a great drinking experience. A solid Saison for sure.
