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 a cloudy straw-yellow. Good off-white head--small, but plenty of blanket lace. Lots of lasting power. As always, there’s a ton of Belgian yeast to the smell. Behind that is some pale malt, but it’s subtle. More bitter than most of Ommegang’s offerings. Again, there’s a harsh yeast bite geometry hop in the background, but it’s not prominent. The aftertaste is better on the hop bitterness, but this still the tale of a strong Belgian yeast flavor.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2014
On tap @ Rattle N Hum. A really big foamed one, and the beer itself is really cloudy, golden yellow in color. It smells of blind Belgian yeast, some green apples, a little spicy touch, some alcohol, apple zest and a little bit of silo fart. Smells nice. Tastes like a proper Belgian. Some yeasty tones and a half sharp alcohol sting. It has a just below average carbonation level and a light oily mouthfeel. The green apple zest sticks in the taste as well, and it’s what I would call as light mouthdrying. Somewhat watery finish. 13.06.2013

Tap - not much head, pale straw color, light bodied, mild floral hop aroma and flavor with mild sweet malt backbone - not bad but expected a little more ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, flowers, frutiness, and a bit of spice. Taste is sweet, but sufficiently hoppy. Aftertaste of yeast and hops linger on into the aftertaste. This is a really well done Belgian ale. It was great after a long run.

Mep3222 (416) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Smells sweet of Belgian yeast with a bit of a nice hop aroma. Some fruity, maybe banana aromas. Full body in the taste and well balanced. Some Belgian sweet, a bit of hops and some banana nut flavors. All well balanced. Really like this one. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mverity (263) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Great appearance, huge bubbly white head, that held for a long time, and has great lacing. The smell was citrusy and earthy but that’s about it. Taste is interesting. Heartburn after 4 big sips. Very lithely hoppy, tons of citrus, and a nice yeasty character. Mouthfeel is a tad thin, and mildly efflorescent.
