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.

gururyan (728) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 24, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Poured from a 750ml into a snifter, hazy gold in color, aroma similar to a farmhouse, taste a bit more like a wit than what I was expecting. A bit floral, but not overkill like Orval or Triple Karmeliet. Not bad, glad I tried it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PlutonowyMan (883) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2017 Kolor złoto pomarańczowy, zamglony. Piana bardzo okazała, barwy białej, długo trwała. Aromat chmielowy, owocowy. wyczuwalna belgijska drożdżowość, akcenty miodowe. Smak podobnie jak aromat typowo belgijski. Drożdże, przyprawowość, nuty pszeniczne i miodowe. Finisz cytrusowy, cytrynowy. Goryczka delikatna, chmielowa. Wysycenie dość wysokie, sprawia, że piwo bardzo szybko zasyca, ciało średnie w kierunku do pełnego. Pijalność bardzo wysoka.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2017 (bière très houblonnée et pourtant bien structurée, originale, mais mousse envahissante)

biilz (205) - SPAIN - OCT 14, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2017 Достаточно не типичный по вкусу Бельгийский эль.Пиво имеет большую шапку пены, слегка горчит. По вкусу чувствуется горечь с цитрусовыми нотками, включая апельсиновую цедру.

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

Smells sweet and of vanilla, tastes like a strong Belgian ale but very creamy, Rich and textured. Very interesting.

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.
