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.

Very nice beer for the hot weather. Light feel to it with an aroma of citrus and sweetness. The flavor follows. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale golden body was hazy, and a large four finger thick head formed rapidly, despite me pouring the beer very gently. The look reminded me a lot of Duvel, but the floral hoppy smell was evocative more of an IPA. Besides the hops, there were spicy, dusty smells imparted by the house yeast strain. The taste was a great combination of typical Belgian Pale Ale flavors, of banana, papaya, melon, and white pepper, and a distinctive hop character. The finish was somewhat tart, and spicy. The body was light and alcohol well hidden. A very easy to drink beer with a refreshing take on the style.

Pours a hazy gold with a towering white head. Hay and hop aroma, with lavender and carnations (clove like) giving a real flowery note to the aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet with a healthy amount of bitterness and a tasty yeast component. Finishes dry with some must and lemon peel.

grassy, flowery and citrus smells coming off of this sucker. Ranking it highly for the aroma. Not bitter at all, though little malt shows through. good hop notes. Ironically, the yeast is the main event. Another good one from Ommegang.

Enjoyed from bottle at World of Beer in Evanston, IL prior to seeing World War Z. Also nursing a hiccup fit, hoping this clears it. Appearance is a very cloudy bright gold with a rich white head. Aroma of floral hops, hay, grassy, smells summer like. Taste is light, notes of clove, lemony, rather carbonated which will not help these hiccups, light dry finish. Overall I like it, good summer ale with a slight Belgian twist. It seems like this could be their new flagship brew.

Pours bright yellow into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Yeast and pepper aromas. Sweet with caramel and yeast upfront turning to spicy hops in the lasting finish.

Deep golden straw color and big fluffy white 3 finger thick head. Very effervescent. Aroma is wheat, mild yeast, but very recognizable as the Ommegang strain. Also picking up mild citrus fruits. Taste is very typical of Ommegang lighter color brews, nothing really stands out other than a touch of lemon zest and a bit of pepper. Palate is light and bubbly. I’m a huge fan of ommegang but was not too impressed by this one. I was hoping for more lemon and hop flavors to shine through.
