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.

JonnyConga (120) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Tiny 250ml bottle. Looks great, crisp and clean hop bitterness. A little Belgian spice but not much. A slightly spicey and strong (although you can't taste it) tasty pale ale - perhaps even a pilsnerish beer. I want more than the 250ml. Could sink a lot of these on a hot summers day... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours two fingers of head on a hazy darker straw body. The aroma is just rip apples and pears, then dry grains and lemon. Nice. The taste is spicy at first, then a dull bitter note and finishes grainy. The texture is crisp with a nice fizz. A nice beer.

Kauge (841) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden colour. White head. Nose: fruity Belgian yeast, band-aid, strong. Tastes sweet, low bitterness. Body lighter side of medium. So much band-aid overall. Should perhaps try another bottle of this - possibly had a bad sample.

visionthing (3767) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2015
25cl bottle at De Verloren Hoek, Gent. Pours clear golden with a nice and lasting, white head. Herbal hoppy and slightly grassy and somewhat fruity aroma with pale malt and Belgian yeast. Moderate sweet with earthy and herbal flavours and a quite pleasant bitterness. Tasty brew!

AGCostaNeves (69) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 18, 2015
Orange blurred color has a good training bubbly foam maintenance mild stroke that lasts for almost the entire tasting. The aroma is sourish, slightly hoppy revealing good herbal hops, the flower type, with some grass. The fermented malt and citrus fruits appear. The taste is slightly bitter shows, but a delicious sweetness appears gulp. A certain banana and wheat malt are revealed, but dry finish and long form. Good carbonation, medium-dry finish body. The aftertaste brings some bitterness that resembles a Weiss, but much drier. Alcohol is hardly noticed. A gorgeous Belgian beer!

Icedwarf (851) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2015
Helder donker geel bier met schuim. Smaak is licht biter en licht zoet met sporen van graan en ananas. Niet echt bijzonder maar goed te drinken, smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen..
