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.

gururyan (606) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 24, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Poured from a 750ml into a snifter, hazy gold in color, aroma similar to a farmhouse, taste a bit more like a wit than what I was expecting. A bit floral, but not overkill like Orval or Triple Karmeliet. Not bad, glad I tried it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

If you’re going to have a hoppy Belgian beer, you might as well have one from an area that produces them. Crisp and fresh offering.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste lightly sweet, a little spice, grassy. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yeasty aroma and cloudy gold color with a sweet malty flavor and slight fizzy long finish. Not a bad standard beer.

abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at Cardinal. Misty golden body with a dense small yellow tanned head. Pleasant coriander, Belgo yeast spices, rubber and scented eraser on the nose. Earthy, light meaty, grassy, malty, herbal, garden cress and sweet flavors. Medium to full bodied. The bitterness is prominent and carries green apples in the finish.

gunnar (5293) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at Cardinal,Stavanger. Pours cloudy golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma of spicy and grassy hops, yeasty malts. Taste is strong herbal bitter, with a minty bite at the finish. Clean dry mouthfeel, high carbonated. A bit biased about this, because it is good, but strange.
