COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the hop capital of Belgium, Hommel is the word for humulus, the plant genus where hops reside. Our Hommel Bier defies tradition by combining North American malts, Pacific Northwest hops, and a Belgian yeast strain. The result is a beer that combines earthy and spicy tones from the yeast with a slight orange note contributed by the hops. We think it’s buzzworthy.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2013 Bottle. Pours a golden-orange color with white head. Grainy, earthy, hoppy, flavor. Updated rating at Perennial. More refreshing on tap.

adnielsen (9108) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2013 Bottle @ Brad’s house Minneapolis, courtesy of jcnielsen. Pours a touch hazy, orange appearance with an off white head. Fairly grapefruity, grassy, a touch piney hoppy, orange citrusy, a bit yeasty aroma. A touch funky, barnyard, somewhat spicy yeasty, somewhat bready, somewhat citrusy flavor. Pretty easy to drink and packs a pretty heavy hop punch.

tmoreau (2429) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2012
On tap at the annual CBS picnic, and self served to clear plastic with a hazed, orangy gold tone, off white head foam that quickly diminished to a ring & film, and some etched-like cling to the lacing. The nose was floral and spice, light yeast, and light fruit & citrus. The flavor added mild malt, moderate but smoothed hop bitterness, medium to light body, and soft carbonation. Just sessionable for the occasion.

Golden beer with a small but lasting white head. Hoppy yeasty aroma, spicy, hay, pepper, some fruits, citrus, floral notes, some banana. Hoppy spicy flavor, pepper, hay, clove, quite bitter, perfume, floral, herbal, peppery. I like the attitude in this beer, lots of hops but still remaining a belgo style beer. Long bitter finish with pepper, yeast, fruit and some hay.

BREWMUSKCLES (2234) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2012
full of fruitpunch and tropical fruit flavor not overdone and still beery with light enough balanced flavors of resinous pine and citrus hop with toffee barley malt. a bit of farina yeast for mouthfeel and dimension and a touch of fructose. marvelous and a treat.

JoeinDahlem (1326) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2012
Seductive farmhouse-style ale with clever hopping. Tough to categorize, and I find it compelling. Ruddy gold color, fruity hop nose that is hard to pin down... citrus, black currant, light touch of resin. Firm and friendly bitterness, with an impression of sweetness coming from a light touch of caramel flavor. Zesty, fruity hop flavor. I expected the classic Dupont mold, but this is something original. I like the reaonable abv. A quibble with the cost, as $10 for a 75cl locally seems rough compared to $8 or $9 for imported Saison Dupont. Would prevent me from drinking this as often as I’d like.

Pours hazy orange. Notes of yeast that dominate with a nice long finish of cloves. Nice complexity dominates the finish.

jstraw (1922) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Draft at Jerry’s. Gold with good, creamy, white head / Bright, hoppy nose of weed, cream, and citrus / Medium body, somewhat fat with soft carbonation, fruity but dry with just a hint of sweetness, and good, very bitter finish / Elegant flavors of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, pine, and resin / It’s a terrific American pale.
