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.

0.75l bottle. Slightly hazy orange body, huge white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, apricot, grass, orange zest and even some coriander. Taste of bread, orange zest, honey and coriander with grassy and floral hops. Very balanced brew. Very nice. Especially considering its price.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2016 Has a floral aroma with a hint of vegetables. Blonde in color with a quickly dissipating head. Taste has that of flowers and fruit possibly bananas. Not harsh on the palate. I can Really appreciate a great Belgian beer.

25cl Bottle at home from Beer Hawk. Mostly clear golden straw coloured pour with a lasting off white froth that lasts. Aroma is nice saison yeast, sweet, sweaty hay, clove phenols. Flavour is composed of light cereal grains wheat, straw, belgian yeast, phenol, little spicy peppercorn, hay. Palate is medium light, frothy, slightly sweet. Pretty good.

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.

ardeo (133) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2016
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 (2751) - 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.
