Ommegang Hennipin is made with the same yeast they use for all their other beers.  Is that not a saison?

I suppose it's all in your own interpretation and good beer is good beer nonetheless. 

A) Hennepin is a tasty beer

B) If I brewed Hennepin, I don't think I'd call it a saison. I'd probably call it a spiced Belgian Blonde. I guess it's not right or wrong either way; that's just how I think of it. Beer nomenclature is a silly thing.

Agreed! I say we just nuke the whole BJCP category list and replace them with "tasty beer" and "swill".
