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.

Pours hazy gold with a small white head that dissipated into a thin film. Aroma is earthy, spicy, yeast and floral. Taste is sweet with spicy undertones. Finish is dry, and overall this was very solid and drank way to easy.

dmac (4738) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2015
12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a hazy brownish/gold body with a super impressive ever rising fluffy white head. The head actually lifted over the rim of the glass by a solid inch and clung there with pride like Ron Jeremy upon disrobbing. The aroma was floral, slightly peppery, potpourri, lemons, tangerine, fresh squeezed orange juice, lime. Palate is delicate, soft subtle mouthfeel with light carbonation, really nice. Flavor is a bit more earthy than the aroma but then the aroma flavors of flowers, potpourri, lemons, citrus rinds, oranges and yeast. Nice beer.

Wow Aroma! Low complexity but nice taste and really a 100 mph fastball of what it wants to be and is. Very impressive. Draft @ Four Moon Tavern ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty good - tasted similar to a saison to me. Taste is full of cloves and bubblegum and is dry and peppery. Nose is earthy, full of yeasty character. Somewhat refreshing on a hot day.
