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.

Bouteille 33cl, dégustée à la maison ! D’apparence trouble, la couleur paille tire vers l’ambré ; une belle mousse se forme immédiatement, environ 50mm. La bulle est compacte. Au nez, l’arôme houblonné laisse immédiatement transparaitre les épices et le pamplemousse. En bouche, c’est très agréable. La texture est onctueuse, et on attaque sur les malts, le pain blanc et les levures. La seconde bouche est plus amère, on sent vraiment les houblons, épicés, mais aussi les herbes et le citron. La finale est douce, d’amertume soutenue. Une belle belgian ale équilibrée, se démarquant par son onctuosité. Je la retiens sans hésitation.
