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.

kidobutai (229) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Light clear appearance, not much aroma to speak of. The taste is quite hoppy, too bitter for my tastes. Like an IPA.

stecken (174) - SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2013
Hazy golden with white head. Aroma is yeast, citrus, hay. Bitter taste, medium body. Long bitter finish. A good beer that doesn’t stands out.

Fritz123 (783) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle at the Yard House in Boca Raton, FL. Tulip. Pours a golden straw color with a white head. Head stays for awhile. Decent lacing. Aroma of fresh hoppiness, cereal, sweet fruits and yeasts. The taste is very hoppy for a Belgian style beer. You get the Belgian yeasts with fresh piney hops, some mild sweetness, and a bready cereal graininess. Light in body, medium carbonation. Bitter finish.

Boshish (5) - ITALY - NOV 1, 2013 does not count
Bought @ rotsaert, belgium. A:pours hazy light orange, nice thick head small bubbles, not lasting much time. N:i smell a little sweetness(maybe honey) followed by continental hops aromas. M:it has a silky consistency, very pleasant.Starts a little sweet, and soon it turns to bitter. Overall it has a great balance and its a very refreshing beer,perfect for a hot summer day.7,5% abv are totally hidden, it could have been 4%.Definition of this beer as belgian Ipa is quite misleading imo since its just a belgian blond ale,a little hoppier than usual, that misses the hop aroma intensity of an Ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pizd (429) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
(Bottle): Pours hazy golden with a white head. Yeast, hops, fruits, grass, citrus aromas. Subdued malty base in the taste with sharp fruit sweetness, hops, yeast, grass and lemon zest coming through. Refreshing and light.
