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.

Mooi goudblond licht troebel bier met romige witte schuimkraag. Bloemig aroma, beetje grassig, fris. Vol en romig van smaak met subtiel licht bittere afdronk. Prima biertje. Niks mis mee.

Bottle 75 cc. Pour ceux qui sont sensibles aux arômes de houblon, cette blonde fera leur bonheur (’hommel’ = houblon = hop) mais le résultat est certainement perfectible : voir d’autres blondes triples belges.

PhillyBeer2112 (2740) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Finally trying this beer after all this time. Light golden, funky nose is grains and spicy hops. Flavors has bubblegum phenols and mild alcohol sweetness show through, with spicy noble hops behind that and a medium bitter finish. Really quite nice combo of sweet belgian traits and hops, no clove notes.

Dorada miel, turbia, escasa espuma blanca que deja película. Aroma malteado, dulce, agradable, notas herbales y especiadas. Bastante cuerpo y punto de gas. Ricamente malteada de predominio dulce, caramelo y delicadamente lupulada. Levadura belga presente. Sabrosa. Rica.

Beerheart65 (1369) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2015
Lightly sparkling pale golden, white creamy head stays ok, bit sticky lacing. Strong aroma, belgian yeast, herbs, perfume-like flowery notes, fruits, green apples, ripe banana, bit spices also, coriander, distant pepper, complex and lively, honey comes as this warms bit. Medium body, light feel, medium carbonation, semisweet, mildly bitter, long finish dries bit. Easy to drink, balanced, complex, lively, great.
