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.

Special batch Dry Hopped with Simcoe and Mosaic. Should be a different entry.I didn’t expect as dramatic effect ont he dry-hopping, they really wnet for it. Definite tropical and fruit aroma. The beer’s flavor is standard. A pleasant and hoppy belgian ale.

Bottle. Pours a murky orange color with a BIG fluffy white head that leaves lace as it descends from the rim of my glass. Hops...wait a minute hops? Yes, hops is the initial aroma of the Belgian Ale! Nice aromatic citrus hops mixed with some fruity Belgian notes. Medium mouthfeel. Smooth, orange with a nice little citrus hop wallop in the back end that lingers. This is a very nice beer!

A cloudy apricot color with big fizzy head and decent lacing. Smell is light with some citrus and Belgian yeast character and spiciness. Taste is somewhat citrusy with earthy and spicy notes. Has a plastic taste that I don't like but little bitterness. Mouthfeel is soft and light bodied with high carbonation. Was disappointed, may have been old. ---Jeremy H

2013 bomber to a snifter. Pours a hazy golden orange with big fizzy white head. Aroma is earthy with a little citrus. Taste is earthy and a little spicy with an almost plastic taste. A little hops and orange, but very faint. A bitterness comes at the end but is cleaned away by the intense carbonation. Finishes dry and clean. Watery mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
