COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nothing is more evocative of summer than the beautiful aroma of flowers, and the favored flowers of brewers are hops. Our brand new summer ale, Fleur de Houblon (Hop Flowers), is brewed to bring the many elements of summer into a refreshing and easy-to-drink Belgian-style ale. Fleur de Houblon is a rich gold color with distinct floral hops in the aroma that follow through in the taste. Whole-cone Bravo hops are used to impart their earthy, fruity, and floral aromas and flavors. The body and flavor are clean and dry, with pleasing complexity and spicy notes from both primary and secondary fermentation with our unique Ommegang house yeast.

mverity (265) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Great appearance, huge bubbly white head, that held for a long time, and has great lacing. The smell was citrusy and earthy but that’s about it. Taste is interesting. Heartburn after 4 big sips. Very lithely hoppy, tons of citrus, and a nice yeasty character. Mouthfeel is a tad thin, and mildly efflorescent.

12 oz bottle from FLBC. Pours semi-hazy yellow, foamy white head. Lacing is the the same. Aroma is spicy, lemon, summer freshness. Flavor is nicely dry, a little bitter on the finish, deeply complex, and quite quaffable. Another excellent beer from OMAGN.
