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. ďLe Fleur, Misseur?Ē Jeff misspelled the boyís comment in his journal as he accepted the offering. A treasured memory, a beer to treasure. Brewed in honor of the New Belgiumís 15th anniversary. It is a tip of the hat to Orval.

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. Iím 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.   Havenít 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 didnít 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 isnít 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.

unclemattie (4189) - Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2011
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 Iíve had, fresh or aged.

22oz bottle (bottled on 06-25-09) poured into tulip glass. Appearance: Golden yellow in color with lively carbonation. Frothy white head with good lacing. Aroma: Grassy hops, pine, cereal, grapefruit, orange, lemon, hay, and bananas. Taste: Sweet citrus fruits at first then hoppiness comes forward. Hop spiciness. Fizzy. Palate: Light bodied. Dry. Smooth finish but bitter. A good Belgian style ale...I previously had this before and think I remember a different taste, could be from the age, but not sure. Have more in supply, interesting to see if there will be change next time I crack a bottle.

Bottle, pours hazy dark yellow with slightly off white head, aroma has notes of flowers (big surprise), some fruity notes including some tropical fruit, some slight honey, spices, and some biscuity bread. Taste is a bit thin, but is complex with notes of flowers and honey, mixing with fruit and bread, finishing slightly sweet and fairly dry. Nice.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a hazy golden color with a bit of a white head. The nose brings some citrus and tropical fruits with light grain alongside some Brett and light, earthy funk. The taste is mild funk with some fruits and pale malt. Slightly dry feel with some funk. Drinks nice and light; would be interesting to see what the funk turns this into.
