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.

bierocker (25) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Golden colour with a creamy white head. The aroma is of yeast, candi sugar and fruits. The taste is of sweet malts, spicy cloves with hoppy floral finish. A well balanced yet beautifully complex beer.

Davhgbrew (929) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle and wob. Dark gold, light amber. Sweet, yeasty, floral hoppy aroma. Huge amount of sediment floating around. Malty caramel and spicy clove sweetness with a slightly syrupy belgian yeast beginning. CARBONATION is moderately high. Middle leads to a bitter yeast flavor. Finish is cinnamon, yeast m, and lingering herbal/floral hop flavor. Overall malt forward yet moderately bitter strong belgian yeasty ale.

madnorwegian (43) - FRANCE - MAY 21, 2014
So tasty. Pours with a light airy head and a honey color. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit almost like an IPA. Beautiful flavors of honey on the palate along with citrus, like candied oranges. Very very well balanced beer. Smooth amd full flavored. Love it.

A malty Belgium yeast beer with enough hops to keep my palate satisfied. A fresh tasting summer supping beer that is light with lemons & limes on the tongue. Rated by BrewTom

Goldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht hefig, fruchtig, würzig, blumig, genauso ist auch der Geschmack.

mikedR (1088) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2014
This rating is for the 2013 "limited edition," which otherwise seems identical. Reminds me of a saison, slightly sweeter and more highly carbonated, with highly hopped *flavoring* but not hop bitterness. Strong pine notes integrated with the saison. It works well.

Deu (681) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Cloudy golden color with minimal white head. Fruit nose and aroma. Soft to medium carbonation, small bitter finish (but it’s there). Nothing outstanding but everything is in place.

Large White foamy head. Opaque light orange body. Lots of deposits. Quite bitter with strong hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dfonorow (1349) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
Hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma and flavor of barnyard, white grapes, candi sugar, earth, yeast, citrus peel, and spices. Finish is a bit hot.
