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.

What can I say? I’m a hophead at heart. This is an interesting brew that could be placed in the belgian IPA area with strong carbonation. I think it is pretty good really.

Bottle at the Elm Tree from Belgian National Day Festival. Light golden and almost clear. A small foamy white head leaves considerable lacing. Candy sugar yeast, pear drops, notes of coriander in the aroma. Further olfactory probing reveals touches of butterscotch, bubblegum and applesauce. Taste is initially simple and sticky sweet, with yeasty flavours to the fore. The ensuing soft bitterness is welcome, giving more depth to the taste. Concentrated resiny hop bitter finish. Fruit caramel, orchard fruit and sourdough dance in the aftertaste. Thin to medium creamy body. Heavy carbonation, but it feels brilliant on the lips. Surprised as to how much I liked this (a lot)!

Meget humlet, helt over i IPA afdelingen, den er dog lidt lysere i det, men har samme lækre blomster/honningsmag over sig.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2017 Belle couleur belle mousse. Une belge, pas trop forte (7.5), avec du corps. Bonne.

Flaska belgoklubben. Guldisig vätska. Doft av jäst, hö, örter och aprikos. Smått stallig. Smak av ovanstående med kryddig ton. Diskret beska

Flaska från Belgoklubben. Ljust gul med vitt skum. Doft av örter och lite skumbanan. Söt och fruktig smak.

Overraskende god øl, rund, blid og skøn. Den overrasker ikke, men den tager dig med storm. Den fylder, uden at være dominerende. Sgu et godt bryg!

33cl bottle. Aroma of fruits, bread, hay, earth. Pours hazy orange blond with a fading large head. Taste is fruits, grass, minimal sweet. Fizzy mouthfeel.

Luneylane (193) - 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.

ramboraffe (2254) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2017
750 ml bottle from belgoklubben. Hazy golden with white head. Light fruity with caramel and candy and hay. Dry with medium bitterness and medium carbonation. -
