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.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy straw-yellow with a white frothy head. Aroma of hops and very floral. Taste is yeasty, moderate hop, earthy and a great citrus burst. A definite summer beer with the ability to make it into my top 5 favorite summer ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

"Damn - they did it again. Hazy yellow, ginormous head. Their bpa is one of my favorites in the style and this follows suit. A cross between a hoppy bpa and a Saison. Pepper, earthy hops, floral aroma, yeasty yet light and refreshing. Delicious, and growing on me w each sip. I hate to have another beer to need more of, but its a good problem to have."

KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle from BOTW. Huge floral and citrus nose, light spiciness from the Belgian yeast, wonderful. Lemon, grapefruit zest, light bread or crackers. Reminds me of a Westy Blonde. Glowing golden, almost pastel, cloudy, tall fine head, effervescent. Crisp malts, lemony, lightly spicy. A bit tart with a solidly bitter finish. Prickly carbonation, light to medium body. A great hoppy Belgian style blonde. World class.

Cloudy yellow pour with a big white head. The aroma has some sweet, banana-like esters, earthy and floral hops, and spicy notes. The flavor is similar, with lots of spiciness on the finish, very earthy too. Good amount of bitterness, and a dry finish.
