3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy pale yellow, big, foamy, billowing white head, lots of carbonation. Zesty aroma, floral, spicy, a bit of cracker, Belgian yeast. Taste is crisp, slight bitterness, spicy floral note, some grassy earthiness as well. Light bodied, pretty refreshing. Not bad from Ommegang, good for summer. I preferred Hop House a bit more though.

Ommegang Fleur De Houblon falls short of the hype. Not much aroma coming from this bright golden pour with a nice head. Taste doesn’t have the hop notes describe but it has a nice malt profile. Fleur de Houblon is pretty good but not as good as the rating and the pedigree one would expect.

Not too bitter for a pale ale. Really drinkable for the strength. Perfect champagne-level of fizz.

On draught at Winking Lizard. The beer is a slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a medum fluffy white head that recedes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus and yeast. Medium-bodied with flavors of floral hops, citrus, malt and yeast. The finish is fruity up front with an earthy hop aftertaste. Above average overall.
