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.

On tap for the Perennial event at Bainbridge. Pours cloudy orange with medium to large white head. Nice lacing patterns. Aromas and taste are belgian pale malts, hops, spice, and orange zest. I like prefer american pales but this one was impressive.

750ml in a Trappist glass. Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma of spicy yeasts, citrusy hops, and some sweet, caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same with a nice balance of everything. Average texture. A good beer that blends hoppiness with Belgian yeast characteristics well.

EtTuCthulhu (1072) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 9, 2013
This beer pours a hazy brownish gold color with a large persistent head, and the aroma is spruce and floral hops. The taste is mildly sweet, slightly bitter, and slightly sour, which isn’t that unpleasant; furthermore, the medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and slightly bitter finish combine quite nicely for a pleasant mouth feel.
