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.

What can I say? I’m a hophead at heart. This is an interesting brew that could be placed in the belgian IPA area with strong carbonation. I think it is pretty good really.

Barreras (1047) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours a yellow color with a grass and spruce aroma. Taste is a light malt with a plant aftertaste on the palate. No distinct bitterness but an airy malt tinge after the swallow. The alcohol content is recognizable but the beer is still smooth.

bonkiedeaap (309) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2014
25cl bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is gold in color with a solid white foam and with a lot of bubbles. In the aroma the grassy hops are easily recognized. In addition, the fruity scent with a tone of unripe pineapple. A full and refreshing spicy taste changed the pallet to light citrus, orange and grapefruit supported by the hops. The finish is honey soft to change immediately into a light spiciness of cumin seeds.
