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.

Very clear one. Nice hoppy aroma and very equilibrated taste. Nothing to harsch, floral at the beginning. Golden and clear appearance with a nice lasting foramy white head. Excellent choice for a hot summer evening!

Hazy amber color, big white creamy head. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Very smooth and silky texture. Aroma of orange, tropical fruits, peach, malts, yeast. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Very fruity and very easy to drink. Great Saison-like Belgian Ale!

Shark_Pants (235) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours slight hazy orange with nice foamy head. Aromas of honey, bread, banana and pepper. Smells quite similar to Tripel Karmeliet. Taste is bready, honey, very light citrus, belgian funk, dryness in the finish. Medium bodied, appropriate for the style. Nicely balanced, very enjoyable.

Bottle at pipers in middelkerke. Pours hazy orange with a big white head. Fruity aroma from both hops and yeast. Medium body, wheat like taste. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rdb84 (122) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Light orange color, not too much foam, quite bubbly. Aroma is fresh and yeasty, orange, nuts, cheese. Taste is like the aroma: similar to a Saison, but not as outspoken in its individual elements. A blended sweet taste of yeast and light orange, develops towards a robust bitterness, some cheese in the aftertaste. Agreeable, but a little bland (apart from the bitterness).
