Poperings Hommelbier was specially brewed in 1981 for the 3 annual hop festivals in Poperinge. Since bumblebee is the local dialect for hops, the name for this tribute to the Poperinge hops was quickly found. Meanwhile, Poperings Hommelbier is appreciated worldwide for its unique style with 100% hops from Poperinge.
This 'Golden Ale' has a firm white head that invites you to discover the scent of green hops, yeast and light fruit notes. After a full and refreshing spicy taste, the pallet changes to light citrus, orange and grapefruit, supported by the hops. The honeyed aftertaste leaves a slightly spicy cumin taste to a full hop taste.
