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 itís buzzworthy.

Itís 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. Itís a Belgian taste that takes some getting used to.

hopscotch (10130) - 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 (2588) - 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.

25.4 oz bottle. Clear orange with a meringue head. Nose is grass, toffee and lemon peel with hints of bubblegum. Crisp medium light with a carb bite finishing fuzzy. Taste is citrus pith, peel and grain with just a hint of honey ending bitter and grassy. A nice rustic ale with spicy hop accents.

Well done. This beer is made so spot on to the style of a Hommel. Earthy spicy mellow hops. So unlike a regular American IPA. Kind of hard to believe that itís made here. Good job!
