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

dmac (4546) - 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.

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.

Bottle (12 oz). Shared by the devil himself, thanks czar!

Appearance: Slightly hazy bright golden with a medium mostly lasting white head and good lacing.

Aroma: Herbal hops with the classic Ommegang yeast, some spiciness, floral notes and light fruitiness.

Taste: Quite herbal too with a good clean malt backbone that supports everything else very well. Light spiciness, dough, floral notes and some fruitiness too.

Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Herbal and somewhat dry finish.

Overall: Well executed hoppy Belgian Ale. Ommegang are better than most Belgian breweries to craft Belgian ales. Balance is a good as it get and it’s quite drinkable/quenching. Loved it.

mathieuc (1952) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2015
Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of pilsner malt and flowery hops, really nice. Taste is dry and moderately bitter and filled with herbs, straw, fruits and light peppery notes. Body is medium and carbonation medium-high and fitting. Overall a really nice and "authentic" belgian IPA!
