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.

Great Belgian beer, like a strong ale with hoppy aftertaste, if it wasn’t so watery I would love it

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dirty golden amber with plenty of tiny floaters, long time 1/4" head and a few specks of lace. Taste begins with caramel malt, adds bittering and sour in the palate, along with carbonation that creates a very full mouthfeel. Finish extends the palate into a slowly diminishing end. Well-done, not exceptional.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 At Tolkien’s House, Zagreb. Cloudy golden color with minimal white head. Fruit nose and aroma. Soft carbonation, sweet finish. Classic Belgian Ale.

czar (4109) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
pours lightly hazy bright straw yellow with a small yet frothy white head, leaving some creamy lacing - some yeast or hops particles. belgian yeast - very spicy and dusty, grassy green and leafy hops - some citrus, slightly woodsy - hint of vanilla, biscuity cracker-like pale maltiness - complex and rustic malt bill, hint of wheat and sulfur, slightly warming. lively and soft carbonation, light body - oily, bittering herbal-grassy-spicy drying finish. uber-quenching for its abv. tasty and good! loved it.

ICEatALAMO (908) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2014
2013 bottle. The pour is a hazy golden. The aroma is all belgian. The taste is nice citrus and belgian at the same time. A little disappointing overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sterk gehopt met geur van honing (heeft niets met hommels te maken). ideaal biertje op een terrasje in de zomer

One of those beers that just baffle you! I had the pleasure to taste this beer while on vacation next to the brewery in this little magical town that produces a lot af quality beers, Yesterday I was there as well, again... Home of the hop country that produces Westvleteren, St. Bernardus, Poperings Hommelbier, Watou, jejeje and so go on. This beer has a fruity pallet that serves you in every summer. With a BBQ, or after a feisty meal. Also in winter after a Christmas meal, or next to the fire place, this one you will enjoy. Either you like beers or not. This beer will serve you if you don’t like the hops from the Westvleteren 6 (Blond) and also when you are not that fond of the Weißbier from germany. 2% stronger but 300% more taste en ja ga maar eens Nederlands leren, prima biertje mijne heren!
