COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep burnished gold with a slight haze, Le Fleur Misseur opens with pineapple, clove and honey notes. Dry-hopping produces a flower leaf aroma supported by tones of fresh bread and honey. Le Fleur finishes dry and slightly herbal. Produced for New Belgium coworkers to celebrate our 15th anniversary, Le Fleur has roots in the earliest days of our history. In 1988 founder Jeff Lebesch sat weary on the side of a Belgian road when a young lad passing by picked a delicate yellow flower and offered it to Jeff. “Le Fleur, Misseur?” Jeff misspelled the boy’s comment in his journal as he accepted the offering. A treasured memory, a beer to treasure. Brewed in honor of the New Belgium’s 15th anniversary. It is a tip of the hat to Orval.

SF5! Medium yellow, slight head. Grassy hop and slight funk aroma, a hint of a floral note. Flavor is a match. It is reminiscent of a hoppier and less funky Orval. Good stuff. Just a bit thin onthe finish.

"zesty citrusy yeast in the aroma and flavor. well done enough that this could be a good summer session beer. a little musty, with a touch of brett to produce a dry finish, but still light and refreshing. enjoyable yellow pee-pee beer...yeah!! "

Backlog rating on 10-20-2012 at Fort Wayne Ratebeer Gathering (Bottle provided by jsquire) This beer forms a small white head that is mostly lasting, pale yellow hazy body, very little carbonation, floaties, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is funky, fruity, tart, and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. This beer’s mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is quaffable and worth trying.

Sampled at Ft Wayne RB tasting - Pours hazy gold with a lasting white head and a very fruity smell. The flavor is slightly funky with tart, fruity, and earthy characteristics. It’s bubbly and finishes dry. Really good.

22oz bomber. Pours a lightly hazy yellow straw with a thick fizzy white head. Nose is medium sweet, light herbal character, apple, pear, dusty. Flavor is similar and kind of a letdown for the price. But I should have known better.

This bottled brew from a rating party poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated hazy yellow colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was floral and funky. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of funk and floral. An OK brew just nothing special.

Bomber. Poured clear, bright golden with a dense, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up bright Brett-like fruitage, pineapple, and cloves over a soft, fairly nondescript pale malt base.. smelled very clean and refreshing. The flavor found a lot of fruity and floral, Bretty dryness on the edges, but the core was a bit lacking.. lightly-tart pineapple zest and floral notes on the quick, dry finish. Light-medium bodied, dry, and lightly tangy on the palate.. Orval-ish, but at least a standard deviation removed.
