Poperings Hommel Fresh Harvest
Every year In mid-September fresh hops are picked in the Poperings hop field and immediately used to brew the annual Poperings Hommel Fresh Harvest Ale.
The 4 hops used to brew this fresh cone Hommel are from Poperinge, Saphir, Magnum, Challenger, and Kent-Golding.
After a 3 week resting period, this ale is dry hopped again with Saphir cones.
The ale is bottled exclusively in 750ml bottles with extra yeast and sugar added so it can referment for 3 weeks. There are a limited number of bottles produced because of the one time harvest of fresh picked cones.
High fermented Belgian Ale with refermentation in the bottle.
