I thought this to be a pretty decent beer. I noticed some banana notes in the aroma.
Looked nice with a tall head.
Smelled good too with spicey malts and hops.
Good

A murky tea colored brew with a substantial creamy egg shell colored head and lusciously laced. The aroma has a slightly orange citrus over grainy grass theme and a subtle bubblegum sweetness. A bit different but it quickly entices the palate. The flavor delivers very much what the aroma suggested with a very grassy attack but with a decided lemony-orange hop over a thin bready grain. The hops seep in with more and more gusto and a suggestion of clove. This really grows on me. It’s kind of more grassy bitter than I like but the citrus and grain balance it out pretty nicely. This is medium bodied at most with a somewhat frothy feel, very delicate, tingly carbonation. Nice stuff that leaves a bitter coat way back on your tongue. Recommended!

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)
