Hennepin - This 7.7% ABV beer pours a pale straw, light golden in color with a very large head of white effervescent foam. The aroma is predominantly yeasty, with a bit of banana and some biscuity grain. The taste is yeasty, fruity, tart, a bit of Irish soda bread with various dried fruits and a lemon finish. The mouthfeel is very effervescent and refreshing. There is a lot of yeast going on in this beer, but is balanced enough to still be quite enjoyable to me, a decided non-yeasty.
Abbey Dubbel Ale - This 8.5%
BPA Belgian-style Pale Ale - This 6.2% ABV beer pours orange-golden, slightly cloudy, with a massive, bubbly, thick, foaming head that is barely off-white in color. The aroma is fruity, citrusy, with a good amount of yeast and some esters. There is an undertone of grainy malt. The taste is bright, fruity, zesty and grainy with a bitter and very dry finish. I am not a huge yeast fan, there is quite a bit in the aroma, but it is well-balanced in the taste. This is a nice and refreshing BPA.
