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.

Gerbeer (1686) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours amber with lots of floaters and light head of big bubbles that dissipate quickly. Aromas of sweet malts, ginger, and light citrus with some floral notes. Flavors are similar though a bit more pronounced and with the addition of dried bananas/yeast. Pleasant.

Scopey (6315) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Keg at Six Deg North. It pours clear gold with a minimal head. The nose is fresh, dough, grass, floral, light sweetness and farmhouse bread. The taste is crisp, bitter, doughy, grass, hay, spice, mild sweetness and earth with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate cabonation. Hides abv well. Pretty nice.

mcberko (6029) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
330mL bottle, pours a clear golden with a large white head. Aroma brings out lots of Belgian yeast, dry apples and some floral notes. Flavour is very dry, with lots of Belgian yeast, crackery malt, and light floral notes. Very dry, yeasty and fairly lively carbonated. Classic Belgian ale.

Très très très bonne bière. Elle reste encroyablement délicate en bouche. Je m’attendais à quelque chose de très houbloné et ben non, l’équilibre a été trouvé!

Hazy orange with thick but light white head. Aroma is musty yeast y. Taste is light yeast and hops. Distinctive orange taste in the background. Need to try a fresher bottle, but still pretty good.

BOTTLE 33CL from dmcchew. Thanks, Cristian Mihai. Look: amber with lots of yeast sediment, big off-white forthy to creamy head with above average retention. Aroma: sweet fruit, orange, some kind of oriental desert with sweet and spicy nutty notes, crystallized honey, a tad of alcohol, some grainy corn notes too. Taste: sweet corn, spicy phenolic, warming alcohol, low-to-moderate bitterness.

Silvan7 (655) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle @ home from Beergusto. Ambrata velata con schiuma bianca abbastanza fine e poco persistente. Aroma fruttato, di pesca, scorza d’arancia, lievito belga, zucchero candito, luppolo erbaceo, gomma. Molto complessa. Gusto secco, amaro, con lievito luppolo erbaceo, un po’ di gomma , uno speziato solo apparente, dovuto alla fermentazione. Molto carbonata, un po’ spigolosa, di corpo medio. Abbastanza armonica, poco calda, molto dissetante.

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - JUN 2, 2014
Drought. Golden yellow with creamy white head, slight honey aroma, low carbonation, honey taste with a sour tang and bitter long finish. The bitter aftertaste and the metalling tang is not very nice.
