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.

A dusty bottle bought at Greenlife Grocery, poured a hazed golden with a big head. Has an aroma of pils malt, saison charcter (barnhouse) oxadation and slight skunky flavor. Metalic taste in there too even though its corked. I think this bottle was treated poorly and was probably not stored properly. Too bad could have been a good beer. Buyers be ware!

Golden, yellow color, with a big, froth head. Aromas of herbs, grassy hops, fresh, soft yeast and spicy clove, multi-layered, none of the flavors stands out too much on its own. Has a very gentle grassy hoppiness above a supersmooth yeast foundation with lots of spicy hints in it, clove being the most recognizable. Developes an interesting interplay between hops and spices. Finishes very enjoyable, with lots of yeast, while hops still shine through, adding a superb refreshing aspect to the beer.

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 (2768) - 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.
