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.

Tasty and bitter beer with a nice appearance and fair alcohol percentage. Got it in various locations around Belgium. Mostly the western regions sell it in the supermarket. Comes is 25cl and 75cl bottles. After pouring the beer, a fair amount of foams appears and stays for quite some time. A bit like Duvel but not so much. Taste: herbs, hops ofcourse and bitter, much CO2 but functional as the tastes fly around. All over a very tasty beer with enough alcohol to enjoy!

Lightly sparkling pale golden, white creamy head stays ok, bit sticky lacing.

Pouring with white head but not quite firm. Malty taste and a light haze in golden colour. Hops are present but in a little to shy way. Taste is good but not quite as good as my expectations from the fresh hops. Still a good beer.
