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.

jeremytoni (3008) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2013
From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Bitter hoppy malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

zizzybalubba (1484) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Yellowish-orange pour with a huge frothy white head. Aroma of lemon zest and flowers. Bright, citrusy hop flavor with a bitter finish from the Belgian-style yeast. Slightly Earthy on the finish and certainly very dry. Achieves what the brewer intended; an approachable, full-flavored, Summery Belgian ale. Nicely done.

chinchill (2056) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2014
12 oz bottle of Flower of Hops with a BB date stamp of 3/2015. The pale, hazy golden body is topped by a fine looking near white head that has good retention. Both the aroma and the flavor are indeed flowery and hoppy, but thereís an over-abundance of yeast in the nose that detracts a little from my enjoyment, despite the nice fruity elements it brings. Mildly sweet up front and slightly bitter by the finish. Spiciness builds in tasting. Feel: crisp; semi-dry and slightly over-lively feel. Medium-light body.

BelgianBeerGal (3231) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2014
ABC Orlando bottle decently fresh. Cloudy straw color with a bubbly white head and a little lacing. Classic Belgian ale aroma with a good hoppy kick. Flavor is a little muted with light bitterness and a tweak of citrus. Okay.

swillguzzler99 (121) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2014
12 ounce bottle into a trappist glass. Delicious looking gold straw with half-inch frothy, undulating head. Nose is fruity. Maybe a homeopathic bit of banana clove. Taste is more mute than a German hefe. Sweet but nondescript with a bitter linger. One of the most interesting beers Iíve had in a while. Worth a try.

rondphoto (2197) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 1, 2014
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light amber with a solid two-finger white head, stripes of lace. Nice floral aromas along with light wheat. Taste is mild bitter wheat in tandem with a kind of Fruit-Stripe Gum (if you remember that). Maybe a little apple in the finish. A really fresh, bright brew that suggests warm summer afternoons in a very pleasing way. Excellent brew.

rosenbergh (7239) - 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.

Bulk_Carrier (2227) - 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 Iím trying to switch to my darker brews right now.

stevoj (2292) - 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 (3336) - 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 (5045) - 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.
