A bee on a hop, now i've seen everything. Review from written notes.

Deep orange color, hazy with visible streams of upward carbonation. Thin layer of white foam on the surface.

Grassy, herbal hop nose, slightly bitter, the hop smell seemed a little muted up against the Belgian yeast.

Moderately hoppy flavor, noble and grassy again. Yeasty and still a little bit "green", it leaves a fresh and young impression. Simple and clean malty base with a building grassy hop bitterness. Effervescent and quenching, medium bodied, clearly Belgian inspired. Something i'd try again, it's a nice hop-forward Belgian Pale Ale. (622 characters)

I had the privilege of splitting this bottle with the legendary Bradley Mehlenbacher of Draco and the Malfoys on October 28, 2011, poured into Tulips from a 750 mL bottle.

A: The color was a fantastic cloudy dark amber. With its color it reminds me of Boulevard's The Sixth Glass which I hold great memories with. The head was even an intimidating 2 fingered head.

S: The head was dominated by hops, but they weren't even that strong. It had a minor citrus smell, but nothing to strong.

T: The taste was nothing spectacular. It was mostly hops with a kick of some slight spices in a Belgian-like variety.

M: It held a medium body and the carbonation fairly light.

O: I feel as if this is a great choice to get someone new into the beer scene, but it's nothing spectacular. It hits some nice notes, but it feels more like a session style beer rather than a special occasion style beer. (893 characters)

Poured from the bottle a deep copper-gold with two fingers of off-white head.

Aroma of Belgian yeast, light malts, tropical fruit and oranges.

The taste was light on the citrus side but offered a good amount of bready malts, yeast and a touch of spice and table salt.

Medium bodied and a touch dry with a moderate carbonation.

A delicious Belgian Pale. Perennial is off to a good start here in St. Louis. (408 characters)

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) (1,595 characters)

Enjoyed on-tap @ the International Tap House in Chesterfield, MO for $4 (Labeled Hommel & 5.9% ABV on their "Tap Board"). Poured from the Wooden tap handle with PERENNIAL written down it in black into a 14+oz Tulip Glass.

Aroma- Good amount of hop aroma from the beginning but malts are evident as well! Very well-balanced and has a bit of fruit character (possibly citrus but very faint). Belgian style, so the strength of the aroma is easy to take on but fun to try and nab characteristic.

Appearance- Received with a 1.5 finger head that has great retention! Has a deep copper color body that is clear but has such great color it looks semi-hazy. The lacing is tremendous on the walls of this Tulip.

Flavor- Has a slight fruit note from the beginning but very smooth and has tons of malt. The hops are medium flavored in here with a light bitterness at the finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Moderate Carbonation, Smooth, Creamy, and then has a nice peach taste after all the complexity passes on the palate.

Overall Impression- What a tremendous Belgian Pale Ale by Perennial! This one surprised me how greatly smooth and easy drinking it was! The peach taste on the backend was also very nice. Get to Perennial Ales & enjoy this soon! (1,258 characters)
