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.

bottle courtesy of beernbourbon, thanks! nice little belgian ipa sorta deal. nice and hoppy, and the belgian yeast adds more of a nice creamy mouthfeel than a sharp spicy one, much nicer imo. good stuff, easy to drink, nice and floral, moderate bitterness, sweet syrupy malt backbone.

tap at brewery-pours deep orange with lite hazy with a small soapy white head. nose is floral hops lite caramel and nice tea-like qualities, probably from the hops. lots of husky malt flavors lite citric hops-very nice balance here! this beer has a major mineral quality that kind of tasted off to me however, it was not unpleasant enough to lower the score. mineral qualties and herbal hop bitterness on the finish. i really like the herbal character of this beer. nice work!

Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy dark orange gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is hop with an earthy undertone. Quite promising. Med plus body. Flavor is a little citrus sour, followed by some really earthy hops and yeast/spice notes. Though I guess the earthy is also from the yeast based on the description. If the hops aren’t earthy tho, I’m not sure what they are. Pretty good bitter! Each quaff is a pleasure to both the nose and the mouth. This is pretty good ale.

Pours hazy golden with a small white head. The aroma has earthy floral hops, light Belgian yeastiness and is fairly dry. Medium / light crisp body with mild amount of carbonation. The flavor starts dry and earthy with lots of grapefruit zest and pine. The malt is light in comparison and a bit crackery. The finish adds spice and shows the hops well. Really nice beer.
