Commercial Description

As you pour this rich golden ale into your glass, consider your surroundings. Are you in a restaurant? Outside on the deck? Is it hot and humid? Cold and brisk? Take a drink. Feel the way Hennepin is bright and lively in your mouth with a warming mix of spicy gingersnap and citrusy hops. Refreshing. Relaxing. It's true: no matter where you are, Hennepin is the perfect ale for all seasons.

  • Saison Voisin

    N/A

    Refreshing, with a light touch of bitternes and fruitiness, Saison Voisin is produced by top fermentation. It is unfiltered and is refermented in bottle.

    A rustic ale, pale in color, inspired by the rich brewing traditions of the Flanders region. Abundant hops and a Belgian yeast strain contribute exotic aromas af tropical fruit.&nb...

    Pale, hazy yellow color with a fluffy white head that nearly overran my glass. Aroma is both fruity and earthy. Very crisp on the tongue. Almost to the point of being sharp. Honey, ginger, orange, coriander, with earthy malt and hops. Finishes on the dry side. Just a little bit of funk from yeast at the end. That last sip was almost like an apple wine.

    Amazing flavor, complexity, and balance. Wonderful

    Picked this up at my local WholeFoods and didn't know what to expect. I had it with a pizza... and I have to say. I quite enjoyed it. Worth the premium price. Would drink again.

    [Best served in a Tulip glass]

    Poured a light hazy yellow with a huge pure white frothy head that was fully lasting and had extremely excellent lacing. The aroma was very heavy of an earthy yeast, and a moderate odor of straw malts and a citrus hops with notes of banana and some spices(clove I think). It tasted mildly sweet and yeasty with a slight acidic tinge at first and ended with mildly bitter yeast flavor and had hints of citrus, and other spices with the flavor lingering on the palate for a nice while. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery yet dry and quite creamy in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall an exceelent representation of the style and a brew most definitely worth drinking again.

    This is a heady beer with a lingering aroma and a gentle, but lasting mouthfeel. Very easy to drink and a great beer to share with friends. In fact pretty much every beer from Ommegang is great to share with friends.

    Let me tell you that I absolutely love the appearance of this beer. Nice beautiful shade of gold with all the pretty little yeasties floating around in it. It also gives perhaps the best head I've ever come across. Pun intended.

    The aroma is nice, but could have been better had I been drinking this out of something other than a pint glass.

    The flavor was very good. Lots of citrus with some grass and honey. Very nice balance and complexity. If there is one thing that drops the score for me, it is that I think it is just a touch too bubbly. But that is just a personal preference.

    Definitely worthy of its reputation.
