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 (thats where the label comes from!).
Homunculus is a strong, golden Belgian ale with a pronounced hop character. Were 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 thats more than the sum of its parts.

Stuedmaster (351) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 2, 2015
22 oz. bomber from Holiday Wine Cellar. Pours slightly cloudy, rich, dark gold with a nice frothy white head that leaves thick lacing. Aromas of white peach, honey, hearty grain, banana, clove, ginger. Has a dry, crisp quality to the flavor, with spicy and grain accents. Well balanced flavor, very fruity and spicy, a fine example of the style. Full bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and well balanced finish. Would repeat.

LuisVida (72) - - JAN 20, 2015
Color dorado con espuma abundante y cremosa, muy belga. Es una cerveza fuerte, cálida, falta de armonía por un amargor que no acaba de encajar, pero con un gran aroma, muy personal. Hierbas de perfume, naranja, melón y miel, con una puntita metálica.

RW80 (2322) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle (65 cl) shared. apperance: hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head with a decent retention, leaving not that much lacing. Aroma: Bready malt, some bubble gum and pear, orange and yeast, dried fruit. Taste:moderate sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, riped fruit,(oranges) dried fruits (arprictos), some bread and light yeast and alcohol only there in the back. Medium -full body, soft carbbonation., oily texture. And American Belgian strong Ale. Quite interesting and better as most Belgians I had in this style in the last months. However it seems to be a bit more orange instead of lemon based incase of fruityness.
