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.

puboflyons (3397) - 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 (99) - 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.

Bijl (596) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2016
Oranje/gele Belgische Ale met 4 hopsoorten. Het bier is licht troebel met een witte snel verdwijnende witte schuimkraag. In de aroma citrus, hop fruitig, mouten iets aards en een Belgische gist hint. Smaak: Zoet en bloemig in begin, wat citrus, banaan vanuit de Belgische gist esters en kruidig. Vooral in de afdronk komt de kruidigheid naar voren en een redelijke bitter. Mondgevoel is zacht, medium body, medium koolzuur. Iets droog in de afdronk. Een mooi subtiel bier....keurig in balans. Goed om mee te starten.

3.7
willisread (3293) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 9, 2016
250 ml bottle from Tanakaya. Clean fruity ester nose. Floral and herbal notes as well. Sweet on the palate, with some honey and grain. Average carbonation and medium body. FInish is dry with a little peppery hop character. Simple, but well-done little Belgian ale.
