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.

ManVsBeer (9737) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2016
Bottle from Nisa, Hebden Bridge. Clouded orange brown with a thin head. Has yeasts and pale malts in its nose, grittier in this respect due to its evident strength. Fairly smooth in the palate.

jbruner (4567) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bomber with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of light herbal earth and a hint of Belgian light fruity esters. Taste follows, clean and crisp, really nice and balanced. Mild, effervescent, nice.

YigSvartka (304) - Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 26, 2016
Opaque cloudy matte gold with a forthwith vanishing white head. Bubbles eminently visible. Unique, but not concretely robust aroma with notes of apple, yeast, caramel, orange, and banana. Full bodied and vigorous which adequately describes the flavour which consists of apple, banana, orange, yeast, and malt with a pleasantly sweet and hoppy lingering flavour that ensures a lasting appreciation with each subsequent taste. Admirably robust.

Hoppy belgian ale. Golden color, nice and persistent head. The nose is a bit absent. Wonderful honey in perfect balace with the bitterness. Perfect body. Great beer!

La Popperings Hommelbier est une ode au houblon cultiv en Belgique. Dun titrage alcoolique de 7,5 % Abv, lHommelbier possde 4 types de houblon dont le Brewers Gold et lHallertau. De couleur ambre, trouble, la bire prsente une forte effervescence et une fine mousse. Le nez est sur le malt, la levure et prsente des flaveurs trs agrables dpices et dherbe frache. La premire attaque, trs agrable; est soyeuse sur les notes de caramel, de biscuits et dorge. En deuxime attaque, arrive lamertume, sur des armes de sucre candi et de pin. La belle complexit permet, chaque nouvelle gorge, de percevoir des variations subtiles sur cette base. Lamertume souvre ensuite progressivement, crescendo, tirant vers des armes dagrumes avec un alcool trs bien contrl. La finale est alors brillante avec une amertume tout en contrle, arrondie par le sucre. Quel beau pome houblonn nous offre ici Van Eecke. La Belgique peut tre fire de son terroir.

Xstream (242) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2016
Geur is wat zurig als zuurdesembrood. Ook wat zoetig met de geur van groen fruit. Body is bijna romig. Volmondig en als honingbrood. Licht bittertje in de finish met wat kruiden. Peperig en grassig. Lekker!
