Saisons are the original lawnmower beers, designed by Belgian farmers for après-scythe refreshment. Hennepin is bright and sparkling, with touches of ginger and the citrusy fizz of a dash of orange soda. 7.7% ABV - Wall Street Journal, "Upgrade Your BBQ Beer"
Other Notes: As you pour this rich golden ale into your glass, feel the way Hennepin is bright and lively in your mouth with a warming mix of spicy gingersnap and citrusy hops. Refreshing. Relaxing. Hennepin is the perfect ale for all seasons. Try Hennepin with rustic fare such as quiche, bread and cheeses, roasted chicken, fresh water fish, including shellfish (especially lobster). Hennepin's coriander and ginger notes lend themselves to the composed spicing in Asian cuisines. It goes well with Thai and Indian cuisine, sushi, Mongolian hotpots, fried fish, spare ribs and Peking duck. Reviews "Despite Saison's relative obscurity, there are several excellent American examples. Brewery Ommegang, in Cooperstown, New York, has been making its version, Hennepin, for five years. It's a bit sweeter than the Duponts, with a nice balance and notes of tropical fruit." -GOURMET MAGAZINE
