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.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours slightly hazy golden with a small white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big grain, grass and noble hops, along with yeast, Belgian spice and perhaps a touch of lemon. The flavour is mildly dry up front with grainy, pale malts. It quickly acquires a decent dose of hoppy bitterness and this grows to a long and moderately bitter finish with a slight pepperiness. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a fairly simple hoppy Belgian style ale. Light, refreshing, but not the most interesting. 2014-05-03

arkurzynski (1583) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2014
Hazy straw gold with copious white head. Gentle nose of citrus peel, floral hops, yeast spice, and faint "country air." Flavor is semi-bitter citrus/citrus rind with yeast spice. Light sweetness that dries out to a slight bitter carbonic finish. Lingering bitter citrus. Nice light ale.
