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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Bright pour, terrific white head that lingers.

Smell: Smelled clean like a pilsener with a hint of spiciness.

Taste: This is where the spiciness really hit me: on my tastebuds. Delicious, without being heavy-handed.

Mouthfeel: Medium/light body. Quite refreshing.

Drinkability: Very tasty and drinkable. Cloying Saisons drive me crazy. The even-handed ones like this make me appreciate the style and brewing skill. Well done.

Tang- it tasted would wonderful slight bias as I'm a huge wit beer fan. It tastes great prefect balance of wheat and that slight sweetness with subtle notes of citrus.

Odor- smells like a heavy wit beer and the smell of yeast rolls.

Manifestation- Normally I pour beer into a glass with this being my first one I didn't really car so much. Most beer disappoints. However there was clearly sediment in the bottle. It had a slight frothy head upon opening from me rotating the bottle but it wasn't shaken.

Great beer.
