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.

On draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie. Poured hazy gold with thin ring of head. Crisp with grassy notes and a touch of lemon. Finished dry and slightly spicy. Decent summer beer but not much going on.

stevoj (2235) - 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 (4971) - 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.

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

Transfer from BA review on 6-1-13- Served on tap in a fluted glass Appearance – The beer is served a hazy orange-yellow color with a nice thick one finger white head. The head has a good level of retention, fading slowly over time to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma is a mix of fruit, wheat, and grass with a bit of yeast. The strong wheaty smell is mixed with fruits of orange and lemon with grassy and some floral notes rounding out the aroma along with a touch of yeast. Taste – The taste is wheaty and slightly yeasty up front with a moderate amount of orange citrus. The lemon citrus flavor develops more toward the middle of the taste with the wheat becoming more grainy in flavor as the taste advances further forward. The hops that were detected in the nose begin coming in more toward the middle of the taste with the grassy hop flavors starting off the hop entrance and the floral hop then coming in later. In the end a crisp and slightly sour lemon wheat flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the lighter side in terms of thickness with a carbonation level that is slightly on the higher side with lots of little carbonation bubbles. Both are quite fitting for the style and make for a more refreshing feel on the tongue. Overall – A crisp, refreshing and flavorful brew. Very enjoyable and great for the summer weather.
