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.

On tap Very nice saison/Belgian style that balances the yeast really well. A faint banana yeasty aroma topped with a well balanced yeasty body. But not too yeasty, and that sets this bee apart from other American variations. Very nice

Location: 750 ml bottle from Whole Foods-Bowery, 1/3/13

Aroma: The nose is clean and hoppy, with some grass, Saison yeast, lemon, and earth
Appearance: It pours a hazed golden-orange color with a huge froth of lacy, off-white head
Flavor: It has light sweetness, lots of grass, spice, and earth, and a light-medium bitter hoppiness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a lively carbonation, feels a touch slick, and has a bit of dryness
Overall Impression: This was the first beer Iíve tried from Perennial, and I actually quite liked what they did here. Itís almost like an Pale Ale-Saison mixture, but not exactly. It has a Belgian feel for sure. I donít know how to classify this, so Belgian Ale seems perfect. Itís a little overly carbonated, which hurts the drinkability a bit, but overall, itís really quite enjoyable.

Floral aroma. Nice bitterness. Kind of like an ipa with Belgian yeast. Thin head. Lasting bitterness.

750mL bottle, sent from tstockstrom (thanks Chuck), pours a hazy golden / copper with a substantial white foamy head. Aroma is full of doughy notes, with loads of Belgian yeast, with a little spicy and some orangey fruits. Flavour reveals earthy notes, Belgian yeast and dough above all, with a very slight hint of orangey fruitiness. Quite earthy and doughy, with a hint of spice on the finish. Not as good as Iíd hoped for - the nose is much more inviting than the flavour profile. Still, decent stuff.

750ml split at DC tasting. Thick, bright tan, steady long lasting foamy white head. Really true to style, this has a great authentic mouthfeel. Nice delicate straw, noble, hop. Smooth, easy medium, light body. Wow. World class.

Bottle shared by Noodleuser. Thanks! Poured a cloudy, orange-yellow color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was notes of herbs, some yeast and spices in there. Flavor had notes of spice, sweetness, touch of yeast.

Bottle shared by noodleuser. Thanks man! The beer is hazy and golden hued with a half inch or so of white head. The aroma brings spice, straw, grass, herbal scents, yeast. The flavor follows the nose to a tee. A touch of bready sweetness, biscuits, fruit, before finishing crisp and dry. Light to medium in body. A solid beer.

750mL thx to noodleuser. Full cloudy orange. Thick doughy and yeasty nose. Estery. Taste is spicy, crackery, doughy, a bit bland with mild paper and whole wheat bread. Ok. Not offensive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
