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.

Golden beer with a small but lasting white head. Hoppy yeasty aroma, spicy, hay, pepper, some fruits, citrus, floral notes, some banana. Hoppy spicy flavor, pepper, hay, clove, quite bitter, perfume, floral, herbal, peppery. I like the attitude in this beer, lots of hops but still remaining a belgo style beer. Long bitter finish with pepper, yeast, fruit and some hay.

bhensonb (12130) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy dark orange gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is hop with an earthy undertone. Quite promising. Med plus body. Flavor is a little citrus sour, followed by some really earthy hops and yeast/spice notes. Though I guess the earthy is also from the yeast based on the description. If the hops aren’t earthy tho, I’m not sure what they are. Pretty good bitter! Each quaff is a pleasure to both the nose and the mouth. This is pretty good ale.

Tmoney99 (11678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Draft sample. Poured hazy golden color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sweet malt, yeast, earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded with a standout change of pace brew.
