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.

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.

abemorsten (2703) - 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 (5247) - 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.

rand (1280) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Golden a bit muddy with a nice white head drawing to the glass. Malted aromas, fruity of yeast, spicy of hop, note of honey. The taste is on the cereals, wrapped by yeast with an hoppy bitterness fine and delicate. It takes qualities and scale with every sip, bittersweet until finale, tingly and powerful with a perfect hop, very good example of a well integrated 40 IBU.

EdInSaltLake (628) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Earthy, clove-ish spice, and banana Belgian aroma. Really spicy clove flavor, with the banana and earthy flavors in the background. Some malt sweetness, offset of quite a bit of bitterness. A tiny bit of tartness.

Holmen2 (809) - NORWAY - AUG 9, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 From tap at cardinal. Cloudy golden. Meringueish off-white head and lacing. Fruity, floral and slightly sour aroma with lime, tropical fruits and chocolate. Similar and very refreshing taste with newly mowed grass and herbs. Lime, grape fruit, moderate bitterness and a hint of chocolate in aftertaste.

0,5 cl @ pub. Alla spina. Ale belga dolce e aromatica davvero buona. Va giù che è un piacere.
