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.

This just might be my new favorite summer ale. Nice and light beer with great depth of flavor. Very light foamy head and beautiful light amber color. Delicious!

From bottle into glass. Great lemony color with light lacing foam, nice light mouth feel with some fizz, citrusy taste with a little spice. Worth having a case available in the basement! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 Lemon orange nose, nicely carbonated, pillowy head that laces the glass, tastes tart, hoppy, delicious. Tastes like a Belgian crossed with an IPA. Love it.

Fleur de Houblon is the kind of Belgian Ale that seems like it only could’ve been made by monastic brewers. It’s that pairing of old-world taste and timeless beauty. Knockout looks - lightly hazy gold, incredibly good head retention. Funky, earthy, and dank nose. Floral hops and spicy yeast. Flavors are lemony, peppery, bready, and mildly hoppy. Super dry palate. The hops admittedly give Fleur de Houblon a certain American flair, yet it doesn’t seem totally out of character for the style. A very complex and lovely beer.
