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.

blankboy (6525) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
Draught at Café D’Alsace, N.Y., June 2. Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Lovely aroma is herbal and hoppy along with Belgian yeast. Flavour’s the same, herbal and hoppy along with Belgian yeast and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Pleasant, light, and easy to drink on a warm Summer day.

swanmann (662) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Quickly chilled from the freezer, this beer is bright, slightly hazy and golden, with loads of white, tight, lively head, finally subsiding and leaving lace. It sort of smells like lemon, candied pineapple, citrus rind, slight alcohol and wet blankets. Remarkably well balanced flavor, with a lightly caramel sweet shot down the middle, with semi-dry bitterness and bready chewiness. Opens up a bit as it warms, more florals and honey. At 6.8% it’s darn lively. Good beer.

jandd1983 (3145) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Sampled at the W&C on Ballas. It poured a clear golden yellow color with a thick foamy white head. The aroma was of Belgian yeast, wheat, herbal tea, some flowers and light peppery spices. The taste was light, peppery, with bready malt, tropical fruits and spicy hops in the finish. Very good.

Quevillon (2652) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brewery on June 21, 2013. Hazy pale blond, medium head. Light spicy hop aroma, notes of Belgian yeast. Taste is the same, but dry, bitter spice. Pure summer beer!

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a fluffy white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of floral, pine, tropical, and Belgian yeast. Tastes of all the same things with a good hop presence. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing and chewy with a dry finish. It’s nice to see a brewery that make Belgian style beer brew a hoppy style also very light for the summer. Very tasty and full of flavor. Will definitely have this every summer.

bottle. a great looking glowing gold beer with cloudiness under a whipped white head. big herbal, grassy, vanilla, yeasty aroma. flavors of lemon, grass, band-aid phenols, plastic, hay, white grapefruit and pineapple. the phenols are acceptable in the style, however, quite obnoxious in this one which is my only turn off here...otherwise its almost perfect. it has a great refreshing, hoppy note with a high effervescence.

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. I love me some floral beers, and Ommegang did a good job with this one. Great on the nose, great on the tongue. You know the deal. Good hops, may have been better if it was a wee bit stronger.

Pale pour with a thin head. Full mouth. Some copper in the taste. Hoppy backbone. Very easy to drink and overall a fairly nice beer.

Lubiere (11014) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
A hazed blonde ale with a thickk lacing frothy head. In aroma, a smoth fruity malt with grassy citrusy hops, and light solvent. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with orange pulp, grassy hops, coriander, decent.
