Name – Hennepin
Country – United States
Type – Saison

Appearance – Poured a slightly hazy golden straw color with a big white head.

Smell – Sweet smells of apple and pear are big with some hints of yeast present.

Taste – As with many Belgian styled beers the taste pretty much is on with the smell. Apples, pears, sweet malts and some hops. A little yeasty.

I’ve had a few Belgian styles lately and continued it up with this one from Brewery Ommegang. I’ve had a few beers that say saison on the bottle but are technically classified otherwise. This is the first one that I have seen that is actually classified as a saison. I really enjoyed this one as with others in this style. It hides the alcohol content pretty well so that could sneak up on you.

Overall Grade – A

    This is a twofer beer. You pour one and as you drink it you try to figure out what’s going on with this beer and you’re done. When you pour the second and start drinking it, it hits you and hits you hard. This is one fine bottle conditioned brew. I agree with your review, for an American brewed Belgian saison beer this is remarkable.
