4.63/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured into a glass from the bottle. Brilliant cloudy straw colour with fine bubbles and a good 5 cm of fluffy head that gradually shrunk, but never fully disappeared.

Champagne-like aroma of yeasty fruit with sour undertones.

Crisp on the palate with some residual sugar. Subtle notes of crisp sour apples with a yeasty, mineral (chalky, but pleasantly) aftertaste, and lingering notes of apple peel. Well balanced between rich and refreshing

Fine carbonation tempers the rich, creamy texture for a perfectly balanced mouthfeel.

Bottle to tulip. Best by date of 04/2012.

A: First of all, every Ommegang beer I've ever seen has been an absolute stunner in the glass, and Hennepin is no exception. The head is 4 fingers high, the brightest white imaginable and it lasts annoyingly long. The half point lost is from the lacing which is good, just not as impressive as it could be. Medium goldenrod in color and very hazy. About a 15% transparency.

S: Very yeasty: must, barnyard and dough. Ample malts of bread and straw, lightly toasted. Hops are above average with pungent citrus aromas of orange and lemon as well as a distinct floral quality.

T & M: Spices, dust and paper hit the palate along with a tame sourness and a moderate level of residual sugars. The front end is sweeter than the back, which has a chalky dry finish. Full body with a thick, minerally texture cut through by the lively and fizzy carbonation.

D: Residual sweetness keeps the drinkability score average. For me, a bold saison such as Hennepin is a sipper, and a seldom one at that.

750ml bottle into red wine glass. Split with a friend. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a thick white head that quickly faded into a fuzzy layer that stuck around forever.
S: Notes of Belgian spices and yeast with a hint of sweaty socks. A touch of tobacco comes out as the beer reaches room temperature.
T: Flavors of golden fruits, bubblegum, peppery yeast, kiwi?, melon, and lemon zest. Very doughy and bready as well with a light sourness in the finish. Hints of hay and wheat and maybe allspice. Aftertaste has a touch of peppery hops and toasted crackers. As the beer warms I get some notes of banana and cloves. The aftertaste is a bit sour, bitter and leafy tasting as well.
M: Creamy frothy carbonation with a medium-full body. Finish is sweet and drying.
D: A really complex beer. Thirty minutes into it I was still picking out new flavors. This could be the best saison I've ever had, and certainly one I will compare other to.

Poured a light hazy gold with a big head that took forever to die down. Bouquet is a big wallop of citrus and spice and the flavor holds the same as well as some fruitiness and malt. And it all blends together seemlessly. And just like their Abbey Ale I'm simply amazed I can get this at Trader Joe's for around the $8 range.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a beer mug.

This beer has a straw yellow, slightly opaque color. A massive head results from the pouring of this beer, leaving the appearance of soap suds on the sides of the glass as it dissipates. Each sip leaves a bot of that soap-bubble styled lacing.

The smell of this beer is a little metallic with hints of yeast and fruit typical of a Belgian-styled beer. Potentially there is a little bit of citrus as well.

Hennepin tastes of mild citrus and light yeast coupled with dried fruit maybe. A malty-yeastiness maybe. The finish is full of alcohol flavor, which I didn't really expect. A little metallic.

This beer has a good bit of carbonation; chewing produces a good bit of that soap-like lacing in one's mouth. The alcohol makes it's presence known in feel too.

As far as drinkability, this beer is not too bad overall, a light Belgian-style that is bright and proves to be a nice sipper; however, the presence of alcohol flavor from a 7.7% ABV beer kind of makes me want to drink one, then move on.

Overall Ommegang does well in their saison offering.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tall thin glass at 50 degrees, only after the pour (which despite my best efforts to be gentle produced an out of control amount of head) I noticed the label says to serve it at 40 degrees.

Pours with 4 full fingers of billowy white head that sticks like sea foam on the glass as it recedes. Body is pale yellow and slightly cloudy, and full of little bubbles rising to keep the head alive. Very inviting and authentic looking.

Nose is full of soft yeasty bready very Belgian-yeast notes, noble hops and toasted malted barley. Some hints of clove spice and other spices like it. Swirling the beer only makes the head advance up the glass, which is true to the style.

Sourdough bread, yeast, and toasty sweet bread make up the flavor profile of this beer. A little banana makes an appearance as it warms, but not in a significant way. I am surprised to find a noticeable amount of alcoholic flavors here, and it is distracting from the rest of the flavor profile.

Rich, smooth, spicy and medium-full mouthfeel. High marks here, this is like bread in a bottle. Nicely sweet but bites enough to check the sweetness.

Drinkability could be higher if not for the noticeable alcohol.

Conclusion: I wasn't as impressed with this beer as I had hoped to be, but I have limited experience with this style, so I may simply not be able to tell why it is rated as high as it is.

Poured into a MJ tasting glass. Pours a pale golden color with three fingers of stark white head that drops down to about a fingernail's worth of foam.

Aromas of funk and must and chalk. No hops, very little malt.

First sip is of a chalky dryness with hints of tobacco. Peppery, lemony saison qualities.

Mouthfeel is less than medium, drying, a little peppery, some prickly carbonation. Very thirst quenching.

Drinkability is fantastic, this is a great summer beer. Very drinkable, very refreshing, not filling at all.

Poured from a caged-and-corked 750mL bottle into my Troubadour tulip.

Cloudy citrine and golden-yellow body with an immense rocky splashed white crown that recedes to a soapy fat finger. Sticky thick lacing, but no legs.

Mowed alfalfa, challa, orange-blossom honey, and faint spice in the nose. Generally (albeit mildly) floral and citrus-infused.

Dry, moderately hoppy (grassy/earthy noble varieties) palate entry. Grape skins, lemon/lime/orange zest, and white pepper round out the profile. Crisp well balanced taste, though the yeast could be a little more forward (I thought the bottled version would be better in this regard than the kegged version, but I can distinguish no difference).

Medium-light bodied, effervescent, and refreshing.

Quite drinkable, but lacks a bit of complexity and flavor compared to the better Belgian examples. Originally I would have excused this based on value, but over the years Ommegang has gone up in price making me less inclined to choose their offerings over those that are the source of their inspiration.

750 ml caged and corked bottle>large tulip

A very pale golden color, fizzy little bits send streaming bubbles up to form a gorgous 3" high, rocky and fluffy head with very slow dissipation and very sticky lace.

The aroma is full of yeastie complexity, hearty spice rack, tangy and herbal with a honey-sweet malt underneath. cream of corn from the can, subtle banana and vanilla...very nice.

The flavor is 'beyond the pale' in complexity. The yeast flavor is huge with a spicey and crispy first sip, and then a hefty mix of spice and pepper, and a pleasant bitterness from the hops with more earthiness to follow. The malt is actually pretty hefty with a brilliant subtle sweetness that provides amazing balance. hearty and earthy with a unique smooth malt along with a clean crispy feel that finishes smooth and long. the feel is like a luxury sports car (I can imagine) and pretty damn impressive for a something brewed outside a Belgian Abby.

Amazing beer, especially since this is an American brewed Belgian style with the yeast complexity to die for. A rightous value to at only $5.99 for 750.

Bottle dated Oct, 2009.

A - Golden color. Looks alot like a pilsner.

S - Yeasty, with traces of fruit. After a few minutes the beer had a more pronounced smell.

T - Sweet taste, with the alcohol finishing behind it. The combination makes this a very nice saison.

M - Crisp taste and very smooth with slight carbonation.

D - Very much. I like Ommegang and this didn't disappoint.

On Tap at Kite and Key in Philly in a pint glass.

A- Very light golden with yellow infusion and a semi tight bright white head, sudsy lace.

S- Whoa there buddy, a very earthy hayish straw yeasty bready vibe with some underkining apple and pear. Some alcohol seeping through, not a bother, im trying to drank here.

T- For a saison, this is simple, nothing to see here, but saying that I gotta say this is a kick ass saison. Pure balance of earthy yeast mixed in with small fruits. The alcohol detracts and I wish it was lower, I would drink more. Earthy hops and all of that.

M- Medium, crisp, bready aftertaste, not hot, the alc stays on the tounge though. Pretty dry.

D- If this was lower in ABV I would drink more of it. Either way you gotta try this.

Very enjoyable.

Pours a nice straw yellow with the tulip getting slighty darker toward the top

Smells a little "pilsnerish" and yet there is some delicious spices and fruit notes in the back

Really like the taste, nice and warm with a load of sourish taste upfront that subsides into warm straw like mlltiness folowing

Light and bubbly

the 7.7% is well hidden, but this bomber isn't lasting long

Thanks

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Duvel tulip.

Appearance: Pours a very pale yellow, almost white, color. Has a very large, foamy head that dissipates fairly slowly and leaves some impressive lacing.

Smell: Strong apple and vinous notes with yeasty and peppery hints. Definitely smells like a saison.

Taste: Spicy and bitter throughout with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Has sweet, fruity notes throughout backed by a yeasty flavor as well. Quite complex and quite tasty.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied with a pleasing crispness to it.

Drinkability: Quite delicious and quite possibly the best saision I've had to date (granted, I haven't had many). Thoroughly enjoyable and something everyone should try once. Truly a classic in the style!

Opaque blonde, spritzy carbonation produces billowing head. Drops some lace, but medium-to-poor head retention, the glass might be to blame here.

Plenty of dry, peppery spice - actually smells crackling dry. Soft, floral notes - lavender-like. A touch of sulphur.

The tongue is first awash with saltine cracker and bread crust, then drying carbonation floods the palate, wiping it clean with more pepper, chalky dust, faint citrus and a leafy, herbal character. Faintest whispers of candy-ish sweetness, but nearly non-existent. Pleasantly rustic and distinctly DuPont-like in overall character, though the greater 'heft' of this one (higher ABV) is noticed over all.

Pleasant, tongue-curling dryness is straight to style, begs for another sip, making this a solid, enjoyable Saison. I am biased as this is my favorite style, but this is a solid standard. Takes a slightly drinkability hit because the strength doesn't keep it sessionable, however I'd not hesistate to give a full bottle a try.

A year old Belgian bomber poured into a goblet. Golden straw, yellow color with a very rocky head. Very effervescent carbonation that just keeps coming and coming. Certainly hazy to almost cloudy appearance. Nice looking beer.

Aroma was fairly lemony, which took me by some surprise, plus some peppery, spicy character. Definitely some bready malt coming through, too. Nice, complex, inviting aroma.

Taste was very good, having a nice pilsener malt character accented with some spicy phenols & lemon. Finally, a decent amount of hop bitterness to balance things out. Nice beer though there is so much going on here it's almost overwhelming.

A very full mouthfeel from all the carbonation but a beer that at the same time finishes very dry. These make this a very easy to drink beer. Great stuff.

another likely aged jewel, unfortunately I forgot to check the date. c'est la vie. enjoyed with good people..

cloudy light orange, soft pillows forming, esters popping. The 2nd pour releases aromas exploding like supernovae, the yeasty funk with a lemon twang. Extremely drinkable and delicious, spiciness (peppery) from the yeast and a slight hop contribution fill my mouth with happiness and remind me of days spent on trampolines.
The carbonation splashes these flavors deep into my tongue, impressing upon me the urgency of this flavor. I will never doubt a saison again..

750 corked-and-caged bottle split with the girlfriend between 2 Chimay goblets. Bottle date is 12/17/09

A - Hazy golden-straw with a thick, luscious head of creamy white foam. Phenomenal lacing and retention.

S - Banana, clove, lemon zest, biscuits and yeast.

T - Banana dominates again with some yeast and lemon in there. Really getting a bitter spiciness towards the end that a) I can't really place and b) I'm not enjoying too much. Not sure what to make of this, I had such high hopes...

M - Slick with a medium body and high carbonation.

D - I generally like saisons so I feel I could drink this pretty easily. However, I don't know if I got a bad bottle or something, but the bitterness is really overpowering and unpleasant. I'll have to re-visit, I know this can be better then this.

12oz bottle into snifter.
A: Pours with a vigor, into a tow finger head that dissipates into a frothy layer that is uneven. The body is a bold, light golden haze and is nontransparent. The white head leaves a spotty lace on the glass.
S: A buttery aroma, of both clove and spices. The medium intensity is pleasantly light, while still noting good characters. mellow finish on the aroma.
T/M: A bread and butter notes, is projected on the front. Spice and mellow clove on the overall body, a good representation of the style. Very classic notes, but lower intensity with the taste. I get a tingling mouthfeel on this one that shows hops on the finish. Sweet lingering tastes are coupled by a subtle dryness.
D: This is a extremely drinkable brew, great tastes and aromas, while still being light and crisp. Good hidden ABV and I am craving another one.

Some years back, my extremely good friend, Jake, gifted me with a three-bottle set from Brewery Ommegang. Ommegang is a Belgian brewery in Cooperstown, NY. I'm just going to let that settle in for a moment. You may associate Cooperstown with Baseball. But beer people associate it with Brussels. The three beers included in this set were the Hennepin Farmhouse Saison, Chocolate Indulgence, and Three Philosophers Triple. This review will be of the 2008 Hennepin Saison.

I'd been holding onto this beer since Christmas of 2008. I've not really aged beer before, but felt these would be good candidates. Keep the age in mind through this review.

Eyes: The Hennepin Saison pours from a 750ml corked and caged Belgian bottle as a bright amber. I stored this sideways and don't think all of the yeast settled back to the bottom from when I put it in the fridge to chill. The first pour was crystal clear but clouded up somewhat as the yeast snuck into the pour. Still, the golden amber was very inviting and "rustic". Head was creamy white and thick, but not fluffy. It clings to the sides rather well, but does not "lace" much. Eventually dissipating to a thin foam.

Nose: Nose is very thin. This could either be from the long aging or the fact that I have a late-summer cold. The aroma seems to be lightly plastic, but not in a repelling way. There's a little spice and maybe some fruit, but it's not the prominent component.

Tongue: At first, this beer comes across as rather bitter; not from hops. Rather, it seems to be an alcoholic bitterness. There is a good base of citrus and maybe ... I don't know; figs maybe? Hennepin came across as a little one dimensional until I was about half-way through the first pint. Spice began to present itself. Maybe a little pepper. There was some late-presenting malt. Definitely grainy, but not sweet. Perhaps this was through the temperature of the beer warming up over time. Still, I would have liked a little more fruit in a saison.

Mouth: There is a little bit of solvent to the mouthfeel. It lends to the spiciness of the beer. The higher alcohol level of this beer definitely provides a good burn and astringency, but not in a bad way. This isn't a liquor burn; more of a comforting warmth.

Overall: Despite the solvency and slight metallic taste, this beer is very drinkable. Most of the flavor comes through AFTER drinking and in the after taste. This would be a great beer for an October evening at a bonfire or barn party. This bottle could have been aged a little long. It was still a great beer!

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

served on-tap at Mellow Mushroom - Tuscaloosa, AL - into a pint glass

Pours a straw yellow color that is fairly indicative of the style. 1.5 fingers of dense, white head stuck around for most of the drinking session. Lacing was adequate. Problem is that most examples of the Saison style (and I've had a lot of them) look pretty awesome. So, when rating to style, this impressive looking beer is actually pretty average amongst its peers.

Not a lot going on in the nose. It doesn't smell like an elite Saison. It doesn't even smell like a good Saison. It is all banana and spice and airy biscuit malt. Lots of banana, actually. No funk or phenol or sourness or hoppiness to speak of. If this were given to me in a blind tasting then I would emphatically call "bullshit" on its aroma.

I would call "bullshit" on its taste, too. This does not taste like a good Saison beer. It is dominated by banana esters. There is some minute funk flavor and a bit of generic malt flavor to inform the banana but that's it. This beer is pretty accessible for what it is. It just isn't a good example of the Saison style.

Solid mouthfeel on the beer, though. It strikes a good balance between the prickly carbonation and having a body size conducive to carrying the flavors that it wants to present. Drinkability suffers from 1.) not being a good example of the style, and 2.) having a large (for the style) ABV%.

Saison is my favorite style of beer. I am very passionate about it. So take this review with a grain of salt; I am a Saison nerd. I haven't tasted Hennepin for a few years until tonight, yet it is just as poor as I remember it being. I can't understand how people think this is a good Saison. if you like this beer then I implore you to check out better examples of the style.

really does look exceptional, straw golden color and huge bone white pillow of head.
Overall this bottle is a bit differant then i remember, the aroma is fruity biscuty esters, but i remember in other multiple bottles there being quite a bit more funky wet hay, and a dryer cleaner mouthfeel on the pallette, it's all still good though.
Flavors are full of yeast and light peppered spices and clove. once again missing that wet straw im accustomed to with this one, this particular bottle is kinda dissapointing, if only for the fact i remembered it differantly.
The feel doesn't have as poppy a carbination as i would like, or as dry a finish.

I love hennepin, and have enjoyed other bottles as much as Fantome and Dupont, so this bottle was a semi-letdown, which is rare for ommegang, great brewery.

12 oz bottle into a Dupont glass.

Appearance- Massive white head, poured very gentely and this one still nearly got away from me! Straw color body, high carbonation. Great retention and lacing.

Smell- lemon zest, grassy, earthy, some yeast poking through.

Taste- Follows the aroma, sweet up front, a peppery spice in the middle, finishing nice and dry.

Mouthfeel- Very champagne like, light, crisp, high carbonation, very drinkable.

Overall- This is the best american made saison. Looks great, tastes great, and you could definitly drink a few of these.

I've had quite a few saisons, mostly ones brewed in America. But as all Ommegang beers are, this is an American-brewed Belgian beer, right down to having been stocked in the foreign section of my local Wegmans. It's going to stay true to the Belgian saison style, which is completely new to me.

A: Beautiful. Quite a bit of frothy white head, and a light yellow hazy body that's to die for. If I could compare it to other saisons I've had, I'd just observe that it's a lot lighter and fluffier than usual.

S: Smells of very sweet Belgian yeast. Quite a bit of zesty, spicy citrus as well. Lovely.

T: Is this what a saison is supposed to be? The only reason I'm giving this category a 3.5 is because I'm rather puzzled by the lack of lemon and pepper character. It tastes like a slightly lemony Belgian pale, it certainly isn't as whizz-bang as some other artisianal American saisons I've had. I don't know if that's a good thing or not, but it's just underwhelming me for the style. Certainly no farmhouse funk that I've become accustomed to with this style, either. Lovely, but rather mild.

M: Light, effervescent carbonation, begins a bit syrupy with a dry finish. A nice substitute for champagne on a special occasion.

D: Very dry, but certainly could drink a couple of 12 oz bottles of these in a night. Not so sure how sessionable it is, considering the sweetness that lingers on the tongue.

Perhaps I should buy some saisons that are actually brewed in Belgium and do some comparing. But I was certainly surprised by the restraint of my first beer of this style.

My first Saison, and I will definitely be looking for others in this style.

"Crisp" and "Refreshing" are over-used, but I can think of no better terms for this. Citrus-strong up-front, nice carbonation, slight bananna, really just wonderful, and only $7.49 for a bomber.

I've been impressed with everything from Ommegang, but even moreso this. I honestly can't think of a better beer on a hot summer day...
