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.

A dusty bottle bought at Greenlife Grocery, poured a hazed golden with a big head. Has an aroma of pils malt, saison charcter (barnhouse) oxadation and slight skunky flavor. Metalic taste in there too even though its corked. I think this bottle was treated poorly and was probably not stored properly. Too bad could have been a good beer. Buyers be ware!

Достаточно не типичный по вкусу Бельгийский эль.Пиво имеет большую шапку пены, слегка горчит. По вкусу чувствуется горечь с цитрусовыми нотками, включая апельсиновую цедру.

Hazy orange/golden liquid, small head. Aroma of fruits, citrus. Light body, little bit carbonation. Taste is bitter, lager-like.

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.

Leicht trübes Gold mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Malzig, etwas Honig, fruchtig, Zitrus, blumig, sehr süffig.

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.

Keg at six degrees north Edinburgh. Pours clear golden, nose is grass, stewed veg, rhubarb, taste is dry, fruity, sugary.
