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.

12oz bottle. Poured cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head. Lots of carbonation. Grapefruit and lemon with a hint of pepper. Very refreshing. Tastes kinda like Fresca but way better and without the added cancer.

bwa5879 (601) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Light, very cloudy straw/tan with 3 inches or so fluffy bright white head. Smells of fresh sweet lemon citrus, fresh cut hay, hibiscus, honey, light Belgian yeast as well as rye/brett. Very tingly on the tongue, slightly higher than average carbonation. Pretty clean finish, just a touch dry. Floral hops and smooth grassy lemon flavors mix with a perfect amount of bretty yeastiness. Like a tasty Belgian style hefeweisen with tart bretty yeast instead of what. Great summer beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brouwerij (914) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Under high pressure, loud. Pours a hazy golden yellow with thick, fine eggshell head. Replenishing head, good retention, and lots of lacing. Aroma barnyard, stinky, citrus/juicy, yeasty/spice, floral, mild hop. Flavor is slightly herbal, mildly spicy (yeast), fruity, fading into a pleasant hoppy, citrus finish. Mildly sweet, fruity, yeasty aftertaste that lingers. Moderate carbonation, medium-light body, and crisp texture, though the mouthfeel drops off a little quickly. A decent belgian, light, slightly spicy and herbal, drinkable.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy darker yellow color with ginormously thick white head on it. Nose is a little hard to get at with the huge head, but I can get some of the spice elements to it. Taste has the same bit of spiciness to it, and ends up being just a tad sour and dry. Nothing special to me.

LilBeerDoctor (3413) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, wheat, herbal tea, flowers, light peppery spices. Very rich and complex aroma. Flavor is light, peppery, with bready malt, tropical fruits, and spicy hops in the finish. A great summer ale, more complex than most, with lots of spices and flowery notes. Good stuff! 8/4/8/4/14 (3.8/5)
