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.

Garrold (4839) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
750ml bottle. Bier Huis, Ossett. Hazy orange. Thin, lasting, white head. Nose has sweet, lightly spicy malts. Hops come over spicy, too. Big on the Belgian yeast. Taste is upfront sweet. Gets a little spicy. More sweetness on the finish. Ok. A bit one dimensional.

hauxe (581) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2016
Pours from the bottle hazy dark gold with a big fluffy white head that reminded me of a Duvel pour. Aroma is yeasty, sweet, with a hint of spice. Taste is dry, a bit bitter, with a long multilayered finish at which the depth of taste in this beer really becomes apparent. Honey, green apple, bubble gum, and a strong yeasty bread undertone are all present. Overlying it all is a gently candy sweetness that is all the more interesting given the lack of sugar as an ingredient. Medium bodied, well carbonated, and the alcohol is completely hidden. Really very good stuff!

kapusil (1308) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 26, 2016
0.75l bottle. Slightly hazy orange body, huge white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, apricot, grass, orange zest and even some coriander. Taste of bread, orange zest, honey and coriander with grassy and floral hops. Very balanced brew. Very nice. Especially considering its price.

25cl Bottle at home from Beer Hawk. Mostly clear golden straw coloured pour with a lasting off white froth that lasts. Aroma is nice saison yeast, sweet, sweaty hay, clove phenols. Flavour is composed of light cereal grains wheat, straw, belgian yeast, phenol, little spicy peppercorn, hay. Palate is medium light, frothy, slightly sweet. Pretty good.
