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.

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 (2192) - 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.

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - 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 (1906) - 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.

BeerSamizdat (4) - San Francisco, USA - AUG 18, 2012 does not count
It’s really earthy and yeasty, with almost a lager-like finish. Hops are lingering, but not tingling if ya know what I mean. Reminds me very much of the Poperings Hommel Bier. It’s a Belgian taste that takes some getting used to.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a mid-sized, fragile, white head. Good retention. The nose is a spicy, fruity blend of clove and banana with a rumor of tangerine. Medium-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is plenty bitter, offering spicy hops and pale malts. Finishes moderately bitter and dry.

chanokokoro (138) - Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy gold with a huge pillowy three finger head that has great retention and leaves abundant lacing. A very subtle but pleasant aroma of Belgian tripel yeast and hops that add floral tones and herbal accents. Extremely well-balanced flavor that includes tones of pear, a bit of bitter apple, herbs, flora and earthy accents. Finishes crisp and dry with just a slight bite from the bittering hops. Well-carbonated and fairly light to the low end of medium bodied with a touch of creaminess. A recommended Belgian-style pale ale.

MrBunn (2438) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a sudsy head and aromas of light lemon, a little grass and some dusty grain notes. Flavor is light and refreshing with a decent amount of lemony edginess to it, but has a somewhat dusty grain presence that seems a little off... This is a very good beer, but my first mild disappointment from Perennial.
