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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Draught from the brewery. Pours cloudy orange, with a thin but lacing head. Nose shows bright, earthy hops. Resin and citrus. Bitter and then dry on the finish. Some floral notes, but more on the earthy side of flowers. Dirt included in the flowerpot, I guess. In a good way.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of spicy, herbal hops and a musty note. The taste is herbal, spicy hops, medicinal bubblegum (kids amoxicillin), bitter finish. Medium bodied.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2013
On tap at Capone’s, Norristown. Cloudy deep orange pour, nice filmy head on it. Super dry nose, pungent and very inviting, with a pronounced earthiness to it. Playful mouthfeel, lightly bitter on the dry finish. Flavors are really nice, with a seriously earthy yeast core that brings together floral and bitter notes alike, with light spice on the finish. Very enjoyable.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden hued body with a lasting white head with good lace. Aromas are floral, light citrus, medium esters, and spicy hops/phenols. A touch of isoamyl acetate. Flavors are extremely bitter, a touch vegital, light citrus, not a huge amount of hop flavor, just mostly bitterness, medium esters. Very lively carbonation. Dry.

Lupulucid (189) - - JUN 20, 2013
The aroma is light and slightly floral with a hint of grain. Initial flavor is very unique with a grain character and accompanied by a chalky mouthfeel. This fades to a more typical Belgian expression with yeast balance by lively hops. Malt notes linger, adding depth.

notalush (5000) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Hazy orange pour with a frothy, well-sustained head - nose of spicy and citric American hops, lightly musty yeast, earthy malt, tangy citrus - smells more like an American IPA than a Belgian ale, but still nice - full, frothy carbonation in the mouth - flavor is medium dry, with crackery malts, crisp hop bitterness - a bit of earthiness, metallic notes, dusty/basement yeast late, followed by lingering, lightly sweet orange zest and a light herbal note - it’s a good beer, but not for the price - nice to try a Perennial brew, though.
