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.

Poperings Hommelbier es una cerveza belga, de alta fermentacin y con segunda fermentacin en botella, de color rubio ambarino ligeramente turbia y de espuma blanca, densa y abundante, de duracin media. El aroma a malta se mezcla de forma exquisita con el perfume de flores y hierbas (debido al tipo de lpulo aromtico Hallertau). Posee un sabor floral con notas de miel ,a lpulo, naranja y comino. El uso de tres tipos de lpulo y la segunda fermentacin le quitan todo tipo de agresividad y la transforman en una gran cerveza, con mucho carcter y fcil de beber.

Gurthnar (5441) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Quite big beer flavour-wise, lots of things going on. Slightly warming alcohol presence. Big hoppiness, mostly fruity, slightly spicy. Honeyish moderately sweet malty presence. Big beer and not ashamed of it. High carbonation, relatively refreshing. Very good.

puboflyons (3293) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 9, 2016
From the 330 ml. bottle with an expiration date of 08/04/2017. Amber-orange pour under a modest head. Interesting aroma of Belgian yeast, sweet toasted malts, and a kind of mossy note. The taste is on the sweet side but the traditional Belgian toasted malt character plays through. Mild hop finish. Spicy. Medium body.

Bobson (91) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2016
Looks golden and very clear with a medium white head. Smell gives sweet fruit with some yeasts. Taste gives you the same yeasts, some spices and also a bit grassy. Overall, a very pleasant beer that I would happily drink again.

Bottle sample from notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, cereal, Belgian yeast, some sweetness, mild citrus and floral notes, a light fruity character, ok.
