Review of Poperings Hommel Ale

Beer Apprentice - Craft Beer News, Reviews, Interviews and Info.

Hello guys.  Thanks for checking back in on another craft beer review.  Today, I’m going to be trying the Poperings Hommel Ale produced by Brouwerij Van Eecke N.V. located in Watou, Belgium.

I don’t recall ever having a beer from Van Eecke before, so I don’t really know what I’m getting into with this one. Only one way to find out I guess.

The website,, didn’t provide any particular information about this brew, therefore I checked on and found this 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.

Sounds nice enough to me.  Let’s pour.


This beer came in a 25.4 oz. bottle and it had an ABV of 7.5%.
