Poperings Hommelbier – 7.5%
From Van Eecke comes Poperings Hommelbier at 7.5%. De-capping gives a lovely carbonation ‘hiss’ The aroma is nice and fragrant with the usual Belgian style Kent Goldings-ish & saaz like aroma. A real flavour bomb, lots of yeasty fruitiness going on followed by a hint of alcohol presence afterwards. The yeast adds a slightly spicy finish and the hops add little bitterness. Deep amber in appearance with a moderate malty presence. High carbonation and absolutely gorgeous. My ‘normal’ default drinking beer on my Belgium visits.
