3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
