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.

Hazy golden color out of the bottle with a big fuzzy white head. Odd dusty lemon rind and a little funk in the nose. Lemon tartness with some tangerine and rotten lemon rind. Dry grass finish. Okay but not that interesting.

Jan. 10th, 2010 - The story behind the Le Fleur, Misseur? is my favorite brew backstory in craft beer. It’s everything natural and idyllic that I like in beer culture. It traces New Belgium’s explosive growth back to one man sitting on the side of a Belgian path, inspired by one kind cross-culture gesture. I feel like I can already forgive this beer for any flaws in its flavor profile. It produces little head, and glows with a transparent, pale honey colored hue. The aroma is likewise light, but sharp with sour cherry, agave and white grape acidity. Somewhere in between the sour cherries are dumped, leaving a light and sweet flavor that starts with honey and refined sugar, then shifts down to a much plainer sweetness with florals and a slight soapy alkaline flavor. It’s light drinking, but not my style. The story, I’m afraid, is much more touching than the beer.

Super fresh light malt aroma with definite brett tones. Pale gold and slightly hazy with decent white head. Swwt with light citrus notes and a clean saison-like finish. Santé! Notes: Brewery visit during ’09 GABF

Bottle shared amongst friends. At this point of the night/tasting things started to get fuzzy, perhaps the lack of water and food in my stomach played a major role in that. This was a tasty beer with nice malty flavors. Sort of on the sweeter side but still very enjoyable and drinkable.

Too much!? The base beer is nice but man there is too much in here that reminds me of potporri... Like drinking a bouquet of flowers with a medium sweetness that almost makes you want to stop drinking with each sip. I get what theyre trying to do here but for me it falls flat.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2011 Bomba, Belgian flavors and spices run ranpant. I’m loving it! Some bratty funk, some very little sour. Finishes like a saison

Bottle:   Straw in color, sediment floats about, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Big floral nose, semi-sweet, slight straw/hay.   Haven’t smelled a beer this floral in a long time, perhaps maybe Southampton Cuvee des Fleurs.   Tongue starts out floral, a little pale maltiness, sweet, slight dryness.   I have had this before, but didn’t think it was that enjoyable.   This certainly is a change of pace.   Clean, and very floral.   Not sure how you would classify this.   Not like most Saisons as it isn’t barnish in any way.   I guess its classed as Belgian Ale, which makes sense.   Fairly light, very flavorful, clean, would make a great summer thirst quencher, great for salads.   Pretty tasty!

Draft at Falling Rock. A bit of pineapple on the nose. Pours orange tinged with an inch of white foam. A bit dry on the tongue. Seems more like an aborted attempt at a saison.

22oz bottle. Golden pour, white head of big bubbles. Aroma of Belgian Ale, large amount of golden raisins, dandelion, aged grassy hops. Flavor is tart, pale malt, straw, a touch of acidity. Overly active carbonation. Gives me a bit of acid reflux drinking this, lots of burping, slow to finish. Flavor is as authentic to any Belgian Ale I’ve had, fresh or aged.
