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.

God Belgisk Ale. Fin smag af humle, og dermed god bitterhed. Frisk i smagen. Kedeligt udseende.

Great blend of spicy Belgian yeast , and some straw hops on the aroma. Pours with a foamy white head. More yeast spice on the finish .

Aromas of fruit and barley. Pours a cloudy orange with a creamy white head. Tastes of caramel and a grainy finish. Can definitely feel the alcohol in this one.

Draft Half Pint at Battersea Beer Festival, London in Feb 2011 - Golden in colour. Hoppy; floral & grassy hops. Fruity; citrus-orange, grapefruit. Malty; caramel, toffee, candy sugar. Subtly spicy. Nice hop/fruit/malt balance. Refreshing. Sweet spicy fruity throughout. (2011-02-09)

Visual: Pours almost clear pale deep orange with suspended bits of yeast, super clustered activity like a snow globe, 0.5cm lasting frothy head.

Nose: light sweet floral liquid barley malt, light apple notes. (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: super fine-smooth CO2, crisp bite

Mid-palate: metallic-lager liquid barley malt, (lvl-4-sweetness), light short tangy

Finish: grainy barley malt exhale, honey, subtle light bitter hops

Summary: Unbelievable that this is 7.5% - too smooth to be true. Not a ton of pronounced flavour but a superbly executed balance of ultra-creamy mouthfeel, barley-grain, plus a little extra citrus-floral notes from the hops that compliment the whole experience. 3/4 through and still amazed at how smooth it is.

Belle présentation. Nez de malt doux avec touche de gingembre et de fleurs. Goût qui respecte le style, tout en équilibre, malté, houblonné et épicé sans facteur de surprise mais très appréciable. Le corps est comme celui d’une multitude de bières de la Belgique. La finale se fait sur des houblons nobles avec cette petite mais charmante touche de gingembre.

rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2016
Bouteille de 750ml, bouchon de liège. 27 01 2018 Un liquide blond légèrement trouble avec une belle mousse blanche. Un nez belge avec des épices, du blé, du miel et une touche de fleurs blanches. Une bouche agréable avec du miel, des épices, pas sucrée, une finale longue et piquante. Très bien faite.

GemmeDeReve (119) - FRANCE - DEC 19, 2016
Bière blonde assez trouble, avec un nez assez acide, pas de mousse, mais assez pétillante. Un goût d’agrumes qui ne reste pas en bouche, pas mauvaise mais pas exceptionnelle
