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.

Hazy golden orange with a speckled white head. Lots of spicy, noble hop aromas with some bready and caramel notes along with a little fruit - great complexity. Bread, dried papaya, and some hoppy spice. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Great example of a Belgian IPA that’s from Belgium.

Moutig blond bier. Vooral fruitig, maar ook zoet. Lekker bier, past goed bij een voorgerecht met hoppescheuten.

Keg 6 degrees north. Pours deep gold, foamy islands of white head. Huge Belgian yeast and hop aroma, made me all nostalgic for beers a plenty in Moeder Lambic. Rich wheaty full taste, honey and yeasty taste. Good stuff.

On tap at restobiere, bruxelles. Golden color, almost clear, big creamy white head, fair persistence. Aroma is malty with hints of honey and lots of hops following. Very tasty, i thought it was a tripel. Taste perfectly balanced, finish nicely bitter, with aromatic herbs and roots. Medium to full body, fresh, alcohol comes out very late and it’s not intrusive. A lovely ale.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 Uklar og gylden i glasset. Fine humlenuancer i næsen. Bitter på tungen, næsten som en IPA.
