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.

tom10101 (2218) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy bright golden/orange with a medium white head, good retention and some lacing. Aroma is floral with yeast, noble nops, spices (cloves) and light citrus. Taste is slightly sweet and moderately yeasty with floral notes, noble hops, cloves and light citrus. Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Dry finish. Highly drinkable and quite refreshing. Well done, good Belgian Ale!

gururyan (548) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 24, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Poured from a 750ml into a snifter, hazy gold in color, aroma similar to a farmhouse, taste a bit more like a wit than what I was expecting. A bit floral, but not overkill like Orval or Triple Karmeliet. Not bad, glad I tried it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gorkogrlo (95) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle 0.33. Golden color, small white head. Fast disappeared. No lacing. Aroma: toast, little pepperness and some apple. Flavour: spiceness, bread, hay and apple (not cideric, or acidic). Probably from acetaldehyde, but nothing too much. Crisp. On hoppier side. Dry finish. Overall: at first drink it was too much like green apples, but they disappeared. And become quite spicy. It is good beer.

Buongiorgio00 (576) - - JAN 8, 2014
Veramente ben luppolata, con un amaro secco e deciso che oltrepassa i confini di una classica birra belga ma senza suscitare indignazione. Davvero un buon prodotto, con un gusto ricco di sentori di miele e limone. Forse solo un po’ troppo carbonata, per i miei gusti ovviamente.

Aroma: Citrus, cheese, yeasty, malt, little grass, hint of cardboard Appearance: Orange, yellow, little yeast flocks (all over), quite carbonated, white quite frothy head, slowly disappearing, full lace Taste: Quite malty, hint of honey, cheese, light citrus, medium carbonation feel, slightly dry bitter finish
