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.

Aroma van honing, stro en abrikoos, ook gekookte groente. Smaak gaat een fris bitter door, met een verrassende zoete bite. Lekker bij eten.

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.
