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.

Visual: Pours almost clear pale deep orange with suspended bits of yeast, super clustered activity like a snow globe, 0.5cm lasting frothy head.

Nose: light sweet floral liquid barley malt, light apple notes. (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: super fine-smooth CO2, crisp bite

Mid-palate: metallic-lager liquid barley malt, (lvl-4-sweetness), light short tangy

Finish: grainy barley malt exhale, honey, subtle light bitter hops

Summary: Unbelievable that this is 7.5% - too smooth to be true. Not a ton of pronounced flavour but a superbly executed balance of ultra-creamy mouthfeel, barley-grain, plus a little extra citrus-floral notes from the hops that compliment the whole experience. 3/4 through and still amazed at how smooth it is.
