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.

Kevolutionary's rating

Kevolutionary (18) - Red Lodge, Montana, USA - MAR 10, 2011
750ml bottle, Cloudy with a big foamy head. This is exactly how I thought it would be, with an underwhelming hop character. As far as belgium goes, I suppose it is hoppy. But you might as well create a new category in order to keep belgian and american hop characteristics separate. Its good, I finished it and its only $8.00, so I will probably have another, its just not hoppy.

Luneylane (152) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAY 16, 2017
A bottle from Beers of Belgium, shared with Dad whilst on leave. Aroma: fresh bread, fruit. Appearance: hazy amber, very generous lively head. Palate: medium-bodied and creamy, lively carbonation. Long, predominantly sweet finish. Taste: very well-balanced, medium sweet, a noticeable kick of booze at the end. Great beer, glad I bought the 750ml. bottle.

ordybill (1707) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2017
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a gold color with a small white head. The aroma is a sweet mix of fruit. The taste is fruit driven with some caramel malt.

Bottle pours light brown with white head. This is sweet and a little bit of pumpkin pie spice. Honey like sweetness with a mild hop after taste. Pretty good beer

Bouteille 33cl, dguste la maison ! Dapparence trouble, la couleur paille tire vers lambr ; une belle mousse se forme immdiatement, environ 50mm. La bulle est compacte. Au nez, larme houblonn laisse immdiatement transparaitre les pices et le pamplemousse. En bouche, cest trs agrable. La texture est onctueuse, et on attaque sur les malts, le pain blanc et les levures. La seconde bouche est plus amre, on sent vraiment les houblons, pics, mais aussi les herbes et le citron. La finale est douce, damertume soutenue. Une belle belgian ale quilibre, se dmarquant par son onctuosit. Je la retiens sans hsitation.
