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.

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.

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

AgentAle (1400) - 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.
