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.

Poured into snifter after watching The Office series finale. Tastes like a saison mixed with wit, only not as good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rosenbergh (7157) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2014
12 oz bottle. (The Greenville Beer Exchange) Greenville, SC.
Hazy yellow colour with a small to mid-size white head. The aroma is delicious fruity hops, mild bitterness, yeast and spices. Yummy! The flavour is also delicious. Yeast, fruity hops, mild bitterness, spices and some maltiness. Balanced and tasty. An excellent example of American Belgian ale.

nakedwhendrunk (2202) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - OCT 24, 2014
This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a nice looking light to clear yellow color with a good transparency about it. The head was quick and dissipating into barely nothing. Lacing left a lot to be desired. The smell was absolutely spectacular as it had a superb grassy / sweet to lemon bursting citrus hops. The taste was sweet, light grassy, light sweet lemon bursting into sweet orange juice - like character. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a superb sessionability about it. Carbonation was extremely smooth. Overall, whoah, where did this come from, Ommegang? Way to freaking go! Please send some of this earlier next Summer as I’m trying to switch to my darker brews right now.

stevoj (2259) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Almost light and airy enough to be close to witbier territory. Cloudy orange gold with a small fizzy head. Light floral hoppy aroma. Taste is equal parts floral, malt, hops, lavender, coriander. Dry finish.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Serving: Draft at MacDowell Brew Kitchen. It pours a yellow color with a slight haze and a pillowy white head. Then nose has a touch of grain, yeast, and lemon. The flavor follows suit with a touch of florals and citrus pith. Refreshing.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4988) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very hazy and bright yellow color with an enormous fluffy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was pepper, citrus, must, funk and was dryish. The flavor was dryish, tart, chalky and quite musty with notes of citrus, funk, chamomile and other vague herbs. Very long finish that turns very dry. Medium body. Interesting.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Cloudy golden color with white head. Aroma contains some citrus, spices, and perfume. The flavor is slightly sour with some lemons and herbal notes. Overall very saison like but awe.

A very aromatic beer of sweet flowers. Good orange pour that was sticky and laced well. Great oiled hop palate.

Iron Horse- DC. Nice pour, clean cloudy light golden. Good head for this type, foamy sticks to sides. Citrusy, not very strong. Easy drinking but complex. Grape fruity. Not much aftertaste...refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
