Bomber. Poured clear, bright golden with a dense, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up bright Brett-like fruitage, pineapple, and cloves over a soft, fairly nondescript pale malt base.. smelled very clean and refreshing. The flavor found a lot of fruity and floral, Bretty dryness on the edges, but the core was a bit lacking.. lightly-tart pineapple zest and floral notes on the quick, dry finish. Light-medium bodied, dry, and lightly tangy on the palate.. Orval-ish, but at least a standard deviation removed. jsquire (4490) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Hazy golden color out of the bottle with a big fuzzy white head. Odd dusty lemon rind and a little funk in the nose. Lemon tartness with some tangerine and rotten lemon rind. Dry grass finish. Okay but not that interesting. GarrettB (1600) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Jan. 10th, 2010 - The story behind the Le Fleur, Misseur? is my favorite brew backstory in craft beer. It’s everything natural and idyllic that I like in beer culture. It traces New Belgium’s explosive growth back to one man sitting on the side of a Belgian path, inspired by one kind cross-culture gesture. I feel like I can already forgive this beer for any flaws in its flavor profile. It produces little head, and glows with a transparent, pale honey colored hue. The aroma is likewise light, but sharp with sour cherry, agave and white grape acidity. Somewhere in between the sour cherries are dumped, leaving a light and sweet flavor that starts with honey and refined sugar, then shifts down to a much plainer sweetness with florals and a slight soapy alkaline flavor. It’s light drinking, but not my style. The story, I’m afraid, is much more touching than the beer. dnstone (3418) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Super fresh light malt aroma with definite brett tones. Pale gold and slightly hazy with decent white head. Swwt with light citrus notes and a clean saison-like finish. Santé!

Bottle shared amongst friends. At this point of the night/tasting things started to get fuzzy, perhaps the lack of water and food in my stomach played a major role in that. This was a tasty beer with nice malty flavors. Sort of on the sweeter side but still very enjoyable and drinkable.

Date: February 16, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: Byerlys Description: Opaque golden orange with chunks of sediment. Nice amount of head that faded quickly and some lacing. Aroma is pineapple, clove, and bread. Taste is citrus, maybe lemon or sour orange, touch of honey and spice. Reynolds314 (3450) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Too much!? The base beer is nice but man there is too much in here that reminds me of potporri... Like drinking a bouquet of flowers with a medium sweetness that almost makes you want to stop drinking with each sip. I get what theyre trying to do here but for me it falls flat.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2011 Bomba, Belgian flavors and spices run ranpant. I’m loving it! Some bratty funk, some very little sour. Finishes like a saison 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle:   Straw in color, sediment floats about, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Big floral
nose, semi-sweet, slight straw/hay.   Haven’t smelled a beer this floral in a long time, perhaps maybe
Southampton Cuvee des Fleurs.   Tongue starts out floral, a little pale maltiness, sweet, slight dryness.   I
have had this before, but didn’t think it was that enjoyable.   This certainly is a change of pace.   Clean,
and very floral.   Not sure how you would classify this.   Not like most Saisons as it isn’t barnish in any
way.   I guess its classed as Belgian Ale, which makes sense.   Fairly light, very flavorful, clean, would
make a great summer thirst quencher, great for salads.   Pretty tasty! DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Draft at Falling Rock. A bit of pineapple on the nose. Pours orange tinged with an inch of white foam. A bit dry on the tongue. Seems more like an aborted attempt at a saison.
