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.

A very good example of the style, extremely floral on the nose, like being in a well kept flower garden with a variety of different breeds, not as light and easy drinking as you might expect from the style and a bit of the herbal quality becomes harsh on the finish or else this would be an unbelievable beer.

$2.79 bottle from Market Street Wine Shop, Downtown. Pours hazy golden with a massive soft off-white head. Yummy floral aroma - spring flowers, along with banana and spice. Flavor is slightly sweet rose water, banana, more flowers - violets even. Some lemon, some fun, some deliciousness. Damn this is nice.

Damn I’m usually not big on Ommegang beers but this one knocked it outta the park. Drank this in the beginning of fall but so with I had found this in the summer. I would’ve gone through a case of it. Aroma was awesome. Peppery yeast and lemon peel were big and dominant with a slight hippiness to it. Pour was a nice light hazy gold with a one finger white head. Taste was like the aroma. Lemony and yeasty with a bit of funk and stale hops throughout. Nice bitter and dry finish. That Ommegang yeast is front and center but not overpowering or bubblegummy. Medium carbonation. Probably my favorite Ommegang beer I’ve ever had.

Draft at Smithfield Hall. Unclear yellowish-gold. Frothy white head and lots of lacing. Belgian yeast and clove, spice, and citrus fruit. Melon and mango notes. Fairly sweet, yeasty, and spicy taste. Clean, mid-plus bodied mouthfeel. Nice drinkablity overall. Good beer.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a semi-clear dark amber brown colored brew with a thick off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of golden malt, Belgian yeast, and a touch of earthy spice. Taste is medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Flavors of hard fruits, Belgian yeast, a hint of candi sugar. Finish has a sparkly carbonated Belgian ale aftertaste with some hard fruits that slowly disappears leaving a yeast aftertaste. A solid Belgian ale overall.

Aroma is dusty, fruity, tropical fruit hops, barnyard, banana, good. Appearance is hazy golden amber, off white head. Taste is spice, fruity, earthy and pine hops, fruit, dusty, barnyard, I’d say it has a more "in your face" approach than Orval. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, a wonderful dry fruity and piny aftertaste. Overall, this is very very good.

Cloudy golden sunshine with 2 fingers of white lace trailing meringue, disguised as a head. Nose is herbal. Middle is soft creamy grain bill, herbs, wood and earth. Finish is fruity, floral and lightly bittersweet. Excellent beer from a solid brewer.

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.

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!
