I'm breaking form with this review. Usually, I review beers I've never had before, or if I have I don't reveal my opinion before the review, but in the case of Ommegang Hennepin it was actually quite necessary. You see, this is a beer I've never been able to wrap my head around. It gets high ratings on the big beer websites, but I've never understood why. Dan Harper of http://youtube.com/TheEndosymbiosis seems to have a similar taste in beer as me, so I sent him a bottle of Hennepin. Now we can find out if this beer is a little overrated, or if I'm just crazy for not loving it.

I poured a 12oz bottle into an oversize wine glass.
