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.

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.

This feels weird to type...this is the first Ommegang product that hasnít blown me away. Itís not a bad beer by any means, but it tastes a lot like a handful of other summer ales Iíve had. Itís not something Iíd feel confident being able to pick out of a crowd. That said, itís still crisp like a summer ale should be and itís worth buying again when itís actually summer. I have no earthly idea why itís available in February in Pennsylvania.

hotstuff (4639) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Rated on 11-28-2015 (Bottle) This beerís appearance is a huge foamy white head with a long retention, light hazy yellow body, very lively, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is yeast, citrus, hops, floral, grassy, lemon, fruity, earthy, and spicy. The flavor is lightly bitter, sweet, fruity, citrus hops, floral, light lemon, light yeast, and a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel of this beer is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A very quaffable beer with a nice easy drinking flavor. It is worth trying and a beer that I would partake in again.

From the bottle. Hazy with white head. Quite spicy and flavorful. Aroma has a bit of earthiness. Definite sharp bite, bigger than standard. Well dine.

Deep and murky pour with big white head on top. Aroma of floral hop and some fruit, zest. Flavor is a bit earthy, peppery, orange peel, peach and malt now. It is light but definitely complex.

On tap, poured into a snifter. The aroma is a floral, sweet tropical note that hits the nose in abundance. Itís a clear, straw colored beer with a dense white soap head that has moderate lacing and good retention. The taste is a medium bittersweet. The medium body has an oily texture has a fuzzy carbonation with citrus and tropical fruit, and bread for flavors. The finish has a crisp spice quality, followed quickly by a sweet tropical juice (primarily pineapple) that leads to an aftertaste thatís clean with a faint hint of some bread.
