Hennepin has an impressive appearance - not just the golden color, of course, but the head, which is massive and long-lasting. Pouring along the side of the glass will not even help one bit - pour slowly. Very nice honey-toned spicy floral aroma. Though there's some raw honey sweetness as well, the taste overall is nice and dry, lemony, and herbal, all very well integrated in the mouth. Smooth stuff. This bottle was brewed in Belgium, the label says. Wherever they wind up brewing the stuff, it's bound to be a classic. This is one of my top go-to beers for special occasions.

Part of the few bottles of Ommegang I was able to procure on a recent trip to the US.

A - Pours a clear golden colour, finger of soapy head, solid retention and nice sticky lacing.

S - Floral notes, spicy citrus, leafy greens and a hint of cloves.

T - Fruity notes with the cloves coming through, floral citrus hops, unique spiciness that is tough to nail down, but is incredibly tasty and complements the musty caramel malts.

M - Lighter bodied ale that comes across a tad prickly is heavily carbonated, but finishes nice and wet.

O - Quite tasty saison, nice floral flavours, ABV is well hidden and the mouthfeel makes for a refreshing ale. A tasty ale indeed and worthy of seeking out.
