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.

grassy, flowery and citrus smells coming off of this sucker. Ranking it highly for the aroma. Not bitter at all, though little malt shows through. good hop notes. Ironically, the yeast is the main event. Another good one from Ommegang.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a thick off-white head that takes its time settling. Aroma is floral, sour with some malt. Medium body, lively carbonation on the tongue. Taste is a little fruity and earthy with a good malt backbone. Finish is fairly clean and a little dry. Great!

ABUSEDGOAT (2538) - California, USA - JUN 9, 2016
I saw fleur and houblon and hoped Ommegang had made some floral IPA, but alas that is not the case. Luckily, this is still really nice. Cloudy golden orange, large white rocky head, good lace/retention. Aroma is yeast, light bubblegum, lightly floral, light earth, moderate to high fruit. Medium bodied, fairly dry finish, itís a floral Belgian ale - shocker. Itís no Orval but itís nice.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky golden color with a large white head. The aroma is fruit, yeast, spice and some wood. The taste is hop driven with some fruit and spice. A very good beer.

Pours a semi cloudy bright yellow with a huge head of white foam. Aroma of light spices with some sweet fruity notes. Medium body. Very light grassy hop taste. Flavors are not very bold. Leaves a somewhat blah aftertaste. OK, but not that refreshing or tasty.

Bottle. Huge bubbly white head with hazy golden body. Aroma of grapefruit juice, spice, clove, basement, floral hops, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery/sticky texture, lively carbonation. Fizzy in the mouth to begin, sticky in the end. Tart, dry finish. Taste of citrus, lemon, clove, light funk. Good balance among hop bitterness and acidity.
