Ommegang Hennepin

Ommegang Hennepin

Ratebeer 3.68 94th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

The name really reveals nothing about the style; its a Belgian style saison.

Taste +4

The nose is a little hard to get past; skunk cabbage, yeast but yet still sweet. The pour gives a huge fluffy head that stays longer than your in-laws. Luckily the taste is better. You are graced with a medium feel, honey sweet brew, mixed with yeast, grains and slightly spicy nuts. Overall a very clean, effervescent drink.

Aftertaste +1

The corn, yeast and white bread sweetness quickly vanishes leaving nothing.
Alcohol Content +1 7.7%

Wow, one must be careful, this is a 750ml corked bomber. It would be wise to share this one.

Value 0

This one cost $7.50 US. It is a good saison, but not that good. North Coast Le Merle is a more reasonable choice.

Ingame Enhancement 0

I shared this brew with my Father in our hotel room at Disneyland. All things not conducive to violent on-line gaming.

Overall 6/10 Nice

It was a nice beer, but the price was a little steep.
