Brewery Ommegang Hennepin Farmhouse Saison
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Brewery Ommegang Hennepin Farmhouse Saison.
From the Brewery Ommegang website: “Ale with spices: Grains of paradise, ginger, coriander and sweet orange peel. Hearty and rustic Golden Ale. Full-bodied, hoppy and crisp. Hennepin was made to quench your thirst for the unknown”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a cloudy gold with a fluffy white head and thick lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, spicy, Belgian yeast, floral, citrusy, caramel with hints of banana and fresh cut grass.
Taste: Sweet and fruity – banana, apple, pear and peach, Belgian yeast, ginger, coriander spice, bready malt and citrus and pine hops.
Overall: Complex, balanced and highly drinkable, Brewery Ommegang Hennepin Farmhouse Saison is an excellent beer. Brewery Ommegang continues to impress me with their offerings and this 7.7% ABV beauty is most definitely one to try.
