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.

BeerSamizdat (4) - San Francisco, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Itís 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. Itís a Belgian taste that takes some getting used to.

ARH (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2015
On tap, poured into a snifter. The aroma is mellow juicy citrus with a pepper touch and a light pastry dough hint. Itís a murky honey gold with a white, frothy head and a messy and sudsy lace. A medium soapy ring is retained with a soft, thin, dusty and splotchy surface. The taste is a medium sweet and bitter, slightly more bitter than sweet. The beer is creamy but light on the palate with a soft foamy carbonation and a medium light body. Flavors of lemon, grass, bread crust, and a light cardboard, are noted with a late peach sweetness. The finish is peppery and dry with an aftertaste of white pepper. Itís dry, lightly astringent, and it pairs well with rich, buttery foods.

BillKismet (3463) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 1, 2015
This brew has a crystal amber body with a layered cream bubble head--quite appealing a appearance. The aroma and body are fairly consistent, characterized by crystal candy and leafy hop noses, with good overall balance.
