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.

Hazy golden orange with a speckled white head. Lots of spicy, noble hop aromas with some bready and caramel notes along with a little fruit - great complexity. Bread, dried papaya, and some hoppy spice. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Great example of a Belgian IPA that’s from Belgium.

Bottle sample from notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, cereal, Belgian yeast, some sweetness, mild citrus and floral notes, a light fruity character, ok.

Bijl (96) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2016
Oranje/gele Belgische Ale met 4 hopsoorten. Het bier is licht troebel met een witte snel verdwijnende witte schuimkraag. In de aroma citrus, hop fruitig, mouten iets aards en een Belgische gist hint. Smaak: Zoet en bloemig in begin, wat citrus, banaan vanuit de Belgische gist esters en kruidig. Vooral in de afdronk komt de kruidigheid naar voren en een redelijke bitter. Mondgevoel is zacht, medium body, medium koolzuur. Iets droog in de afdronk. Een mooi subtiel bier....keurig in balans. Goed om mee te starten.

willisread (2041) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 9, 2016
250 ml bottle from Tanakaya. Clean fruity ester nose. Floral and herbal notes as well. Sweet on the palate, with some honey and grain. Average carbonation and medium body. FInish is dry with a little peppery hop character. Simple, but well-done little Belgian ale.

geologyguy (1235) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2016
Medium bold smell that is diverse and hard to place...appearance has lots of floaters which is interesting...front end is a little sweet but then morphs into drier yeast taste...light bitterness...some diversity but not a lot

Flaska från Saveur Biere. Smak och doft av humle, belgisk jäst, gröna äpplen, gröna bananer, grönpeppar, honung, citrus, bröd, jord, honung, gräs och örter med toner av koriander. Lagom sötma, rund och len, många smaker i fin kombination, torr, viss funkighet och god beska.

AgentAle (1406) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
Aroma is citrus, clove, straw and yeast. Taste is light sweet malts with a fairly well balanced hop profile that has light earthiness and funk about it. Smooth for the abv. Appearance is a hazy gold with a medium bubbly and frothy head that retains quite well.
