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.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Wheaty base, with some spicy yeast, faint banana-like fruity notes, and a light spritzy/seltzer quality. Pretty good.

Not one of my favorite perennial beers, but it is a flavor filled Belgian with a bit of a bitter long finish.

A lightly hazed golden ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with smooth floral hops, nice. In mouth, a light caramel malt with light grassy floral hops, faint citrus, light bodied, OK. On tap at Corner Foodery.

tectactoe (1524) - Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Jason! Super hazy, goldenrod body with a foamy, white head that fizzles down into a swampy film & chunky collar. Aroma is full force Belgian yeast with a light farmhouse-y funk, hints of lemon & lactic tartness, a touch of grass, & a faint, biscuit undercurrent. Taste is very dry with lots of farmhouse & woody funk, notes of cobweb & cellar floor, mild lemon flesh & stone fruit skins with a sharp, yeast filled finish... A hint of baked bread, leading into a bone-dry, horsey aftertaste. Sharp, carbonated mouth feel... Good Belgian ale. Fairly light, quite funky, & super dry on the palate.

kaser (2541) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Draft pour at unite urban grill Orange cloudy pour. White foamy head. Bitter and hoppy grapefruit and lemon taste. Not IPA in my mind but a good beer.
