I have to start by saying that Cuvee Des Fleures has been my favorite beer of the year, and I hope that the rumors are true and we'll see it as a regular brew by Phil Markowski in the near future.

First poured into an Ayinger glass, then into a Delirium Tremens glass. The DT glass was the best for aroma, but the head retention was better in the Ayinger glass.

A- Nice butterscotch color, cloudy, and plenty of head that dimples

A- Powerful flowers come through right away in the aroma, along with some lemon and hay/ grass aroma.

T- Herbal and bright, very lively, slightly tart, with a pretty bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium, springy, and carbonation is light.

Like I said, it's my favorite innovation of the year- pretty cool, a brew with flowers!

this ones really strong on the aroma. the aromas are really like a garden of many different flowers, some sage. its really really floral, a bit herbal. the taste is a bit less intense thank fully, but its still hard to swallow. not sure about this one, for me anyway

"...ale with a variety of flowers, including L. augustifolia, A. nobilis, C. officinallis and a generous amount of H. lupulus." After some googling that equals lavendar, yarrow, dandelion and hops.

Gold with a lumpy blanket of white foam on top. Clear to cloudy depending on first or last pour.

Smells like green bananas and must. Tastes very spicy with a burnt agave nectar sweetness which is really, really nasty.

This was a drainpour.
