La Hommelbier, une admirable bière, dans sa version annuelle spéciale « nouvelle récolte » du houblon... En 2013, le brasseur nous précise que les conditions climatiques ont permis un houblon particulièrement aromatique. Nous sommes donc plus qu’impatients devant cette bouteille de 75 cl qui titre à 7,5 % abv, comme la hommel classique. La couleur est un doré brillant foncé superbe. Clarté nette. Bulles fines par milliers en colonne au centre puis partout autour (j’ai pris un verre tulipe très haut de Hopus.... c’est de circonstance!!!). Mousse blanche bien épaisse, crémeuse au sommet. Arômes de houblon, malt, fleur de houblon, levure, orge grillé. 1ère bouche à la texture douce et fine, sur du houblon magnifique et du malt clair. Arrière-bouche maltée, levurée, pleine. 2ème bouche sur des fleurs de houblon avec des nuances très larges. Arrière-bouche d’une belle amertume. 3ème où la fleur se développe encore, fine, parfumée, très riche. Arrière-bouche fraîche et pourtant ample. La longueur développe tout le registre : fleur/malt/levure, avec une amertume vraiment très distinguée. La levure est fine, précise, un rien épicée, magnifique. L’alcool est très progressif et constitue un soutien exceptionnel aux saveurs. La finale est sans défaut. CONCLUSION : une bière qui répond pleinement à son attente, et qui permet ainsi à la brasserie familiale très ancienne des Van Eecke (1624) d’obtenir sans problème son deuxième 5.

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.

Pelna paleta piekny zlotawy i jasno pomaranczowy kolor piwa. Metny calkowicie gesa i spora kremowa piana. zapach drozdzowy, bananowy i zywiczny, troche jakby sosnowy. Piekna lakierowana i limitowana butelka. Swiezy chmiel wspaniale wyczuwalny w smaku dominuje nad slodowoscia. Im blizej konca degustacji i dna butelki tym wiecej smaku zywicy wyczuwalem. Naprawde extra gozkie i wytrawne piwo, nie dla wszystkich, ale dla milosnikow chmielnych gozkich zdecydowanych piw. Chmiel Poppering jest tu wszechobecny. Polecam odwaznym piwoszom

77ships (3680) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Procured from ALBO. Hazy, lively orange with a solid white head. Nose is full of floral bitter hops, touch herbs, green noble mainland Europe hops, touch white bread yeast, quite enjoyable. Taste is rich, bitter floral hops, grass, touch honey, white bread, white pepper. Very easy to drink. Great balance, great profile. Really good stuff, total surprise for me, def. delivered more than I was expecting.

Sigmund (5006) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2014
Sample from bottle, RBNG 2014 in Halden, Grand Tasting. ABV was 7.5%. Golden to orange colour, large white head. Distinctly spicy and hoppy aroma and flavour. I tasted only about half of the beers available at the Grand Tasting, but this was the "Beer of the Tasting" for me.

_angst_ (2685) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy orange with a big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some soapy lacing on the glass. Smell is yeasty and fruity with crackers, peaches, dry soil, hay, white pepper corns, grapefruit juice, pineapple, lemon zest, dried pine needles, papaya and passionfruit. Taste is bitter, fruity and phenolic with crackers, dry soil, hay, grapefruit juice, pineapple, mango, white pepper corns and hints of leather. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry and light bodied. Finish is bitter with crackers, grapefruit rinds, hay, white pepper corns, dry soil, leather and unripe tropical fruits. Very pleasant surprise of a beer.

Kaaz (4) - NORWAY - MAY 22, 2014 does not count
Smaker søtlig fersken, appelsin og svak karamell fra malten. Som en kraftig Blond, men hele veien er det fruktig humle som dominerer. Appelsin, granbar preger, men den er ikke så veldig bitter. Humlen er fruktig og fersk. Veldig god øl.
