750 ml bottle from Lifesource in Salem OR. $8.99 ( on sale). 5.8% alc volume. After a rather foam filled pour it settles down and is a hazy yellow bodied beer with a large frothy white head. Aroma of slight barnyard, earth, leaves and a bit of wood and berry. Taste is the same as the aroma but with a bit of rose bud. MOuth feel is fine enough..dryish finish medium small bubbled carbonation.’ OK beer but i think past its best

Medium body, with a slight creamy mouthfeel. Tropical fruit on the nose and hints of banana.
Little to no head, but ver crisp. This a very interesting farmhouse, because you do get some rose pedals on the nose, and a slightly sweet malt finish. Overall decent beer

750mL into a tulip. Pours a pale hazy yellow w/ a 1-finger white head.

Aroma is herbal and a little funky, earthy. Wet hay, dried flowers, a touch of pollen.

Taste is light and crisp with some Belgian funk, floral hops, and a touch of bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is dry, a little prickly.

Overall an OK beer, almost a cross between a saison and a witbier.

Had on tap at Commons Brewery in SE Portland, OR

Pale-straw coloring with a decent white head that dissipated somewhat quickly before leaving an appetizing-looking sticky white lacing.

The rose hips and elderflowers are immediately apparent on the nose along with aromas of fresh citrus and a bit of farmhouse funk.

Incredibly-well balanced on the palate with ample carbonation and a bright and flowery complexity.

This is, hands down, a superb effort. I could literally drink this all day, everyday. My desert island beer list might be in dire need of revamping.

Pours a very pale, straw-like color with a thin and very quickly dissipating white head. A bit hazy looking through the glass.

I can definitely smell the flowers in this one--rose and elderflowers is what it says on the label, and being no horticulturalist I'll take their word on that. There is also some sweetness, earthy funk, and a light malt pull to go along with the flowery aroma.

Taste is a bit on the earthy side. Definitely get the notes of funk, earth, straw, etc.. that define the style. There is also a good deal of sweetness and hints of herbal/floral notes.

Pretty highly carbonated and a bit lighter bodied in the mouth.

This is a pretty good if light beer. Pretty good flavor for a beer with a relatively thin body. The flowery presence on the nose and their slight presence on the palate are interesting. Fleur de Blanc is an interesting saison, though it is not one of the better versions of the style I've had to date. Still, a nice effort.
