4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
75cl bottle with my Belgian father-in-law in Eecke, France. I’ve always loved hommelbier so it was interesting how this was going to compare. First off, this definitely has a much lighter, floral taste compared to standard hommel with marked lemon / citrus notes and a lovely dry finish. Exceptional beer, as always.
