COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hommel is the local abbreviation of humulus, from the botanical name for the hop plant. Confusingly, it also means bumble bee in Flemish. Poperings Hommelbier is a hoppy, golden-bronze, ale. It is made from a blend of winter, summer and aromatic pale malts.

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2014
Classic Flemish ale since 1981, celebrating the hop culture in and around Poperinge. Yellowish white, irregular, stable, sticky head, colour a misty peach blond. Very aromatic hoppy smell, clear dry-hopping, pepper, orange peel, grapefruit, green apple, cumin, honey; fresh and sharpish ’citrusness’ in the onset, soft sweetish malts, dry-hopping apparent from the middle onwards with a strong, green, perfumey, peppery hop bitterness in the finish, where some fruitiness also lingers as well as warming, gin-like alcohol. Nice and elegant beer, justly a classic.

aleigator (231) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2014
Golden, yellow color, with a big, froth head. Aromas of herbs, grassy hops, fresh, soft yeast and spicy clove, multi-layered, none of the flavors stands out too much on its own. Has a very gentle grassy hoppiness above a supersmooth yeast foundation with lots of spicy hints in it, clove being the most recognizable. Developes an interesting interplay between hops and spices. Finishes very enjoyable, with lots of yeast, while hops still shine through, adding a superb refreshing aspect to the beer.

If you’re going to have a hoppy Belgian beer, you might as well have one from an area that produces them. Crisp and fresh offering.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste lightly sweet, a little spice, grassy. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yeasty aroma and cloudy gold color with a sweet malty flavor and slight fizzy long finish. Not a bad standard beer.
