2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tasted 17/3/15 at Ieper, Belgium. Poured a cloudy amber with a one-finger white foamy head that retained OK but laced poorly. Carbonation moderate to high and fine. Aroma strongly of yeast. Taste of sweetish caramel and strongly of overpowering yeast. Light to medium body. Finish semi-sweet then with lingering strong yeast. Not my style.

75cl bottle. Pours a creamy, quite dense and white medium to large size head, sits on long lasting half finger; nice hazy golden colour with minuscule particles going all around. Smells fruity, belgian yeast, lemon, floral, hay. Tastes citrus, honey, spicy, fruity, herbs, cheese, with again typical yeasty notes; quite a low sweetness, medium hoppiness but at the same time delicate, never too invasive bitterness. Average and pleasant carbonation, medium body. Very drinkable, this is a nice and balanced typical Belgian golden ale

Colour is orangle, slightly opaque. Medium head, good retention - nice. Aroma is hoppy, kind of flowery, some grass. Taste is mildly bitter with a nice sweetness in the middle and with a dryish end, some bitterness stays in aftertaste. Seems to be very good session beer. More bitter than other belgian beers. I could drink that one every day.

Une couleur blonde est légèrement trouble la mousse se dissipe peu à peu
Au nez elle va être assez fleuri , mielleuse et épicé
Embouche on va sentir des saveurs de céréales caramel et aussi l'alcool (malheureusement)

Colour is golden with a little bit of orange. Nice floral aroma. Taste is a bit sweet (honey?) that evolves into a nice bitterness (floral, perhaps a bit of orange too). Very nice, refreshing beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy orange with a lasting, stable, bubbly white head. Sourish aroma, slightly hoppy with some spices and nice fruity tones. Something acidic as well, but in general not that disturbing. Taste is mildly bitter with a nice sweetness in the middle and with a dryish end. Bready tones, some yeast, spicy, clear grassy hoppy tones, some citrus and some forest fruits as well. Nice fresh taste, refreshing bitter, truly wonderful. Silky mouthfeel, full bodied with a lively, yet not disturbing carbonation. In general, the Hommelbier is quite a tasty gem. A nice well-balanced hoppy ale with a beautiful, lingering taste.
