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.

Poured into a tulip from a 750ml bottle with a best by of 1/2018.

L- A hazy gold with thick and fairly well sustained head. There is a considerable amount of yeast in the bottom of the bottle and the brewer even cautions to pour slowly.

S- Yeasty with the scent of wet grass and a slight funkiness.

T- Peppery with a hint of citrus peel pith. Moderately hoppy but balanced and refined with a clean, dry finish.

F- Very effervescent and light on the tongue. A rich full body, very crisp and light.

O- This Saison achieves a nice balance of complexity yet maintains the spirt of simplicity of a true farmhouse ale. One of the best I've had.

Slightly hazy straw gold pour with a thick white one-finger head. Big yeasty aroma. Taste has strong pepper, yeast and grain flavors upfront backed by even more pepper on the back of the tongue. Light bodied and highly carbonated.

25.4 oz. bottle consumed over two days with various Yuletide snacks. Used Ommegang's proprietary tulip as a vessel.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy straw with a big white head. Looks great. Terrific saison presentation.

Aroma: Good nose. Grass, funky yeast, citrus/orange rind/lemon, hay, earth.

Taste: Follows nose. Orange rind leads the way and is right on the the edge of overpowering without going over it. Tasty saison. Doesn't quite equal the appearance and nose with the taste, but that's a high bar.

Mouthfeel: Very easy on the palate for such a complex, flavorful beer. Alcohol is noticeable but not painful.

Overall: Excellent saison. Recommended to anyone. Up to the hype, I'd say.
