Brewers Description of this Great Summer Beer:
“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.”
The yellow-orange color of Fleur de Houblon has a slightly hazy complexion and healthy steady head. Floral hops mixed with lemongrass and orange peel create the perfect invitation. A smooth, slightly tart, beginning lays the foundation for this light bodied beer with subtle, yet powerful, flavors that mimic the aroma. The beer is beautifully spiced with a dry finish.
Fleur de Houblon has all the characteristics of a great summer beer. It is harmoniously refreshing and complex. This summertime beer will likely become an instant favorite.
