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.

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 I’d hoped for - the nose is much more inviting than the flavour profile. Still, decent stuff.

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.
