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.

bottle into pint glass
Appearance- Hazed over and light golden, 2.5 fingers of fluffy head recedes into .5 finger that stays for the duration, thick lacing.

Smell- Citrus, various spices like clove, anise, tropical fruits, yeasty, little funk

Mouthfeel/Taste- Carb is very lively and effervescent, medium/full body but appears lighter due to carb, light sweetness. Flavor follows nose with citrus and tropical fruit, spicy clove and ginger, light bready malts and yeast. Alcohol is almost 8% but well hidden, nearly imperceptible. Finishes fairly dry with faint hop bitterness, maybe a whiff of alcohol.

Overall- Tasty beer, full of big flavor. I really liked the lively carbonation - great mouthfeel on this brew. Crisp. The head is impressively big and fluffy, aromatic. Can't think of anything bad to say, other than I wish it wasn't so expensive!
