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.

Hazy yellow with a dense skim of white head. Aroma is spices, sulfur, citrus and roses. taste is the same, with less rose notes, and more lemony bitterness.

Ommegang Fleur De Houblon falls short of the hype. Not much aroma coming from this bright golden pour with a nice head. Taste doesn’t have the hop notes describe but it has a nice malt profile. Fleur de Houblon is pretty good but not as good as the rating and the pedigree one would expect.

Draft poured cloudy. Smooth tasting of hops with a hint of citrus and spices. Some bitterness but decent drinking pale ale.

Not too bitter for a pale ale. Really drinkable for the strength. Perfect champagne-level of fizz.

Dogbrick (7959) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2014
On draught at Winking Lizard. The beer is a slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a medum fluffy white head that recedes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus and yeast. Medium-bodied with flavors of floral hops, citrus, malt and yeast. The finish is fruity up front with an earthy hop aftertaste. Above average overall.

kseecs16 (1193) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a big foamy off-white head. Aroma is very rich, hoppy, floral with a rich sweetness. Full, complex flavor is sweet up front with a dry spicy finish. Uniquely, earthily flavored and quite good. Mild lingering bitterness.

Pours a nice golden color with white head. Floral notes all over the nose, with just a little pine and light fruit; follows onto the palate. Very floral, but refreshing. Dry on the finish.
