Perennial Artisan Ales Hommel Bier

Poured into a Chimay goblet from a 750ml bottle.

A – Pours a nice rich golden color with some slight haze and a nice amber and copper notes. Almost gives it an orange DIPA hue. There is a thin 0.25 inch head that is dense and kind of chunky but sticky. It recedes fairly quickly but not too fast. (4.0)

S – Wow! Aroma is delicious. Hop juice is pretty strong with some slight sweet notes. Including some mango notes as well as some slight tangerines. There is definitely citrusy hop resin in their as well as some slight hops. Similar to some Belgian IPAs. There is nice malt sweetness as well with some bready toasted character in the nose. Earthy and a bit yeasty. (4.0)

T & M – Wow. Very nice Perennial! Starts off with some earthy grain that gets quickly covered up by some grassy and earthy hops. Herbs and spices are present. There is some nice slight citrus notes as well as some mild tropical fruit notes. There is also some clove. The bready malt is refreshing and clean and flavorful but the hops really make this beer. Very similar to some Beligan IPAs. There is some nice spice and almost peppery note as well as a nice Belgian yeast overtone that dances well with the nice orangey hops. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp with a slight dry finish and some slight hop stickiness and bitterness on the back end. (4.5) (4.0)

O – Very good brew. The second one I’ve had tonight from them and they have both been amazing. This is very well crafted. You can tell they put care in their product as well as they try to be unique. Very good. (4.5)

Bottle shared by noodleuser. Thanks man!

The beer is hazy and golden hued with a half inch or so of white head. The aroma brings spice, straw, grass, herbal scents, yeast. The flavor follows the nose to a tee. A touch of bready sweetness, biscuits, fruit, before finishing crisp and dry. Light to medium in body. A solid beer.

This beer is a crystal clear golden color with a half inch white head that has some really nice retention. Pretty nice sheets of lacing as well. Aroma is mild. Subtle spice and belgian light friutyness with some earthy aromas, but it is quite subtle. Nice though. Flavor is nice but more aggressive than the aroma with lots of peppery spicy flavors with some mild grassy notes in the background. Mouthfeel is light with good fine carbonation. Very refreshing and enjoyable light beer.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #62 (Mar 2012):

LOOK: Golden orange

SMELL: Earthy, leafy, soft resin, dragon fruit, yeast, faintly medicinal, peppery, floral, clementine pith

TASTE: Hop bitterness, leafy, tree bark, nutty yeast, orange peel, faint white peppercorn, kiwi, chalky, light melon rind, biscuity, mild warming alcohol, dry semi-bitter finish

Fresh and in your face, but without being aggressive. Depth and complexity won us over, and each sip made us think a little bit more. Hoppy Belgian Pale Ale with a generous and skilled hand adding Pacific NW hops. Best of both worlds?
