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.

Bottle @ home. Mostly hazy yellow-orange appearance with a white head. Floral hoppy, slightly sour, light Belgian ale nose. Fairly floral hoppy taste with a yeasty, slightly sour, Belgian golden ale flavor. Slightly hoppy, lightly fruity Belgian ale finish.

beernbourbon (1288) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Bottle. Pour is light cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is lemon, chamomile, faint hop, light spice, and hay. Flavor is very true to nose with a lightly floral quality and a crisp spicy finish. Not bad.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2011
On tap at Brouwer’s. Pours a light honey amber, with a foamy white head. Nose is interesting - herbs and bubblegum. Wheat, cardamom and a bit of rosemary countered with apricot candy. Flavor follows suit, adding floral notes (that could just be my head) with a full but incredibly delicate palate. Dry finish, without being too sharp - it just sort of disappears. A bit of citrus, lots of herbs/floral notes. It’s almost a bit too delicate for my taste, but it’s a very pleasant brew.

ttutony (639) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Slightly hazy yellow in the glass with a thin white head. Very floral aroma, like smelling a handful of flowers. Slightly grainy palate with a healthy dose of floral notes there as well. Hint of citrus in the mix as well.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color. The head was three fingers high and white with good retention and lacing. Nice aromas including the likes of flower blossom, subdued apple, chamomile, clove, and fruit pastry. There was also a whiff of sweet cream. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet. Tasted of clove, minerals, light pear, herbal hop, and biscuity malt. Very nice.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2011
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the brett character. I get a lot of leather and brett funk, with some lemons and oranges mixed in. Very inviting aroma. The flavor is more of the same. I get brett, leather, oranges, biscuit malt and toffee malt. Lightly funky. Very drinkable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice wild ale from New Belgium.

On tap. Golden pour - floral and citrus aromas. Tastes earthy, spicy, and refreshing. This was delicious.

Nikiel (875) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Pours a foggy light gold with small white foam. Smells lightly sweet and certainly sour. Tastes wheaty and lightly sour with hints of clove and dandelion. Simple, bitter, almost like a sour mead

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle from Ericandersnavy, thanks! Blonde. peppery citrusaroma with a hint of leather. Initial malt, soon taken over by lemony floral flavors. Leather, pepper, esthery. Indeed a tip of the hat to Orval, but fruitier. Well done!
