Ommegang Hennepin

 Saison is a complex and once-endangered style of farmhouse ale that originated in the French-speaking southern part of Belgium, traditionally brewed in the winter months and served all summer long. Ommegang’s Hennepin is the best interpretation you’ll find here in the States. It pours a softly murky straw-gold, with classic clove and spice flavors shining brightly through the Belgian yeast strains that give it that musty farmhouse aroma. Lighter, fruity esters and a dry, crisp finish hide the fact that this beer is nearly 8% ABV.
