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.

Not much of a small, but it has a pretty good taste. A little watery but has a complex mixture of tastes.

12 oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a substantial foamy white head nearly spilling out of the glass. Outstanding head retention and thick globs of lacing. The aroma fits the style perfectly. Spicy lemon and orange peel along with great yeast esters. Bread and cracker crumbs in the background with some flowers. Just really amazing in every way possible. The flavor is just as great as the aroma with juicy orange and lemon up front with a quick hit of coriander. Spicy Belgian yeast is present throughout and a very nice bready malt base. Light bitterness and a very light spritzy mouthfeel. Overall, an amzing enjoyable beer. I don’t believe I have had a bad beer from this brewery and this one is just perfect for summer.

Nice, refreshing pool-side brew. Murky 14 karat pour with a tight ivory crown. Fresh floral, citrusy, yeasty, spicy nose with similar flavors. Grapefruit pith and lemongrass, honey-baked biscuit, and white pepper. Leafy and green. Solid brew.
