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.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle with a bottled on date of 03/12/13 with a best before of 03/2014. Pours with a lightly hazed straw yellow hue with a massive foamy white head that lasts and leaves good lace. Aromas are spicy and floral hops with noticeable juicy and fruity yeast esters and some peppery phenols that mesh well with the hop character. Some tropical fruit, mild isoamyl acetate. Lightly bready and straw like malt notes. Flavors are dry with a medium bitterness. Fruit flavors from both hops and yeast. An assertive, but not unbalanced bitterness. Bready and toasty malt notes, banana, tropical fruit. A bit grassy and straw like. Esters are a touch high and isoamyl acetate forward for my taste, albeit it is still a very nice beer. Very lively carbonation, pretty dry, mild acidity. Good.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy honey gold color. Large rocky white head with clinging lace. Floral fresh hop aroma. Yeasty notes as well. Bready, sweet citrus malt flavor upfront. A touch of bitter lemon peel in middle. Dryish, spicy hop notes in finish. Well balanced and refreshing.

Rich malty nose with fruity / yeasty elements. Smooth, slick on the tongue with a sharp, dry finish. Medium body, medium fizz. Floral hops flavor with some coriander and a little pepper. Surprisingly rich flavor. If I were blindfolded, I might call it a yeasty wheat beer.

polo_marco (301) - milton, Vermont, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Smells very malty with a touch of lemon. Awesome super dense cloudy yellow color with one finger white head that last and last. Sweet malts coming out to play first then some citrus fruits like lemon like, and oranges. Light body with carbonation that just tackles the tougue. Love how crisp the carbonation is in this brew. Love your beers keep them coming. Nice work!

Opaque, absolutely unusual milky/brown color, solids in suspension. Medium body, moderate flavor, oily texture, hollow middle, avg heat but well carbonated, long palate but harsh finish. Very bitter, dry. Intense hops, resiny, earthy. Interesting in more than one way. . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
