Poperings Hommel Bier

Slender 330 mL bottle, Greens, Ponce De Leon, Atlanta, GA, USA.

Poured into the Duvel tulip, this creates an enormous, fluffy head with plenty of lacing. A cloudy and hazy honey color, this looks like a classic and typical Belgian Pale. Good looker.

Corriander spice notes in the nose. Taste is pronounced peppery and dry, with a hop finish that is very surprising for the style. Like De Ranke XX and Houblon Chouffe, this is a hoppy Belgian that lacks much rich, fruit flavor, but has the mild grapefruit bitterness instead. Nice alcohol level, a very easy beer to drink and very interesting. A little thin, but not a problem.

Not a typical Belgian Pale, but a clean an interesting change of pace. Tired of typical Belgian sweetness and fruit? – This would be a nice way to go.
