BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States

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 Ssaisons. 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.

Pours a hazy yellow with a big foamy head that lasts for a bit. Moderate lacing. Big aroma of grapefruit and citrus, with notes of yeast. The taste follows the aroma, along with a fair amount of sweetness and spice. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. This is such a good saison. It leaves me thinking of warmer weather and hoping for another glass soon.

Apperance-golden hazy with a beautiful white head that sticks around for a while.
Smell - spicy, orange, hay, funk
Taste- orange, green banana, dry, slightly sour, hides abv very well
Mouthfeel - very nice smooth, full mouth feel
Overall - A lovely beer. Very refreshing, delicious and beautiful to look at. Available at a decent price. Not an easy beer to get where I live but will pick it up when I travel to another city.
