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.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 This stuff is lovely. The wife credits this beer with successfully introducing her to the hoppy spectrum. I do say try this beer. There are lots of hop fields outside Poperinge and in the center of a round-about just out side the town is a giant hop sculpture. Serving: Bottle

75cl bottle from MOMH. Pours clear gold, generous white head. Aged cheddar, cut grass, blossom honey aroma. Spritzy. Sweet malt, honey, light caramel, some noble hop bitterness, finishes dry and slightly astringent.

Kleurplaatje (72) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2015
Pours hazy orange with a lasting, stable, bubbly white head. Sourish aroma, slightly hoppy with some spices and nice fruity tones. Something acidic as well, but in general not that disturbing. Taste is mildly bitter with a nice sweetness in the middle and with a dryish end. Bready tones, some yeast, spicy, clear grassy hoppy tones, some citrus and some forest fruits as well. Nice fresh taste, refreshing bitter, truly wonderful. Silky mouthfeel, full bodied with a lively, yet not disturbing carbonation. In general, the Hommelbier is quite a tasty gem. A nice well-balanced hoppy ale with a beautiful, lingering taste.

R2k2 (373) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2015
Een troebel, doch iets oranjekleurig bier waarin de gistdeeltjes nog in rondzweven. Een lekker vol, iets zoetig aroma, maar met de goede hint van hop. Een iets zoete smaak, maar wel verfrissend. Een lekkere bittere nasmaak blijft achter. A cloudy, yet somewhat orangecolored beer where the yeast is still present. It has a nice, full, somewhat sweet aroma, but with the touch of hop. It has a sweet, yet fresh taste. A nice, slightly bitter aftertaste remains.

Alusmamuts (600) - LATVIA - JAN 24, 2015
Pale yellow hazy with rich bit creamy white head. Honey sweet on the tongue beginning, followed by short sourness and finishing by remaining mild bitterness.

Moolesen (269) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle 25cl. Golden with a white head. Buxus aroma and some hops. Taste the malt which is nice in balance with the hops. Quite high carbonized. Medium length

Nice Belgian Ale with a rather refreshing aroma of hops and citrus. I expected a lower amount of alcohol.

Cloudy golden orange with 2 finger head. Aroma of cloves, citrus, honey. Flavor of honey and wheat with light grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Also has a unique flavor that I can’t place. Lively carbonation and lasting foam.
