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.

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 (5866) - 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, Id 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.

polo_marco (328) - 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!
