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.

Deu (668) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Cloudy golden color with minimal white head. Fruit nose and aroma. Soft to medium carbonation, small bitter finish (but it’s there). Nothing outstanding but everything is in place.

EddyBeer1 (765) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2014
Blonde dorée légèrement voilée, effervescence forte de visu, moyenne au palais, col blanc crémeux et abondant. Les malts clairs de l’entrée laissent assez vite place à une bonne amertume houblonnée et herbacée doublée d’un petit citronné, assez sèche mais rafraîchissante.

Minderbinder (1591) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle 330ml. Pours golden with medium white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of sugar, malt, belgian yeast, citrus. Taste is of sugar (candiesque), citrus, belgian yeast, bitterness, alcohol. Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Belgian. Fruity: nice citrus. A good one. I really tough there was some candi sugar in there. Must be a combinaton of yeast (nice features) and kinky hops.

Uma bela surpresa! Que tal uma tripel com dose extra de lúpulos? Malte, álcool e lúpulos bem equilibrados. Gostei!

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.
