COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer and human life have a lot in common. For centuries, no one knew quite how either really worked. Beer fermentations were believed to begin when a “magic stick” was dipped into a fresh batch of wort. Without microscopes, no one knew that a tiny, sugar-eating fungus turned all that sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Biologists faced similar mysteries about human life. One widely-accepted belief was that teeny, tiny people, called homunculi, would grow into full size babies inside of a woman (that’s where the label comes from!).
Homunculus is a strong, golden Belgian ale with a pronounced hop character. We’re not talking bitterness, but hop flavor and aroma. The Belgian-style yeast strain contributes significant fruity esters that mix with the hop profile to create a taste that’s more than the sum of its parts.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a hazy, orange-golden body under a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma has a faint yeasty touch, with fruityness, canned peaches and some sugar. Some alcohol too. It’s quite warming on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Fruity, sweet flavor with a yeasty hint, canned peaches and some banana. Lasting finish. Nothing impressive going on here. 140301
