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.

It’s really earthy and yeasty, with almost a lager-like finish. Hops are lingering, but not tingling if ya know what I mean. Reminds me very much of the Poperings Hommel Bier. It’s a Belgian taste that takes some getting used to.

glennmastrange (2493) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Bottle. Moderate roasted grain for the malt, light to moderate herbs and citrus for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with dried fruit in the background. Head is large, fizzy/frothy, white, with good lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber/tan. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily, with a fizzy carbonation and a tart finish. An easy drinking Belgian Ale, perfect accompaniment for a big dinner

Draft: Orange-pulp looking appearance, with an off-white head. Orange-malt and grapefruit-peel scent. Yeast, orange malt, fruit flavour. APA-like hopping... Really wonderful.

wxman (1615) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2015
On tap. Pours a cloudy pale amber with a thin but resilient white head. Aroma is musty with coriander and other spices. Taste is sweet pale malt, honey, peppery, bready, yeasty with a distinct hop bitterness not all that typical in a Belgian ale. Good, quite good.

onceblind (6172) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Hazy gold with a thin foamy cap. Lovely aroma of honey and lemon citrus and the lightest bit of white pepper. Musty flavor with yeast and honey and a certain blonde breadiness all over the place, some white pepper and Belgian tree fruity esters, light honey, grassy dry hop bitter tones, and a yeasty Belgian blonde malt/white peppery finish.

draught@Erzbierschof Krone - pretty hazy dark red.orange beer under a solid creamy and long lasting pale beige foam; gently perfumy and estery with notes of watermelon and pears; a good malt backbone, clean, rounded and tasty; fairly sweet, very subtle and moderate carbonation, quite dry and decently bitter; long hoppy finish of quince and melon
