A- Beautiful white head that slowly vanishes completely. The body is a hazy golden-yellow.

S- Floral hops, pepper, dandelion, and lemon. A belgian-styled yeast is prominent. I can almost detect brettanomyces, but I know it's not there. Dry.

T- Follows with sweet floral hops and lemon pith being prominent. Finishes with the hops gaining a bitter quality. Cracker malt

F- Silken for an ommegang, but still over-carbed.

O- I love the flavors that Ommegang can create, but their yeast always falls short on mouthfeel... too harsh. Luckily, Fleur De Houblon is a little more subdued and sophisticated.

12 oz bottle of Flower of Hops with a BB date stamp of 3/2015.

The pale, hazy golden body is topped by a fine looking near white head that has good retention.

Lemon, yeast, spices and light bread in the nose. Both the aroma and the flavor are flowery and hoppy, but there's an over-abundance of yeast in the nose that detracts a little from my enjoyment, despite the nice fruity elements it brings. Mildly sweet up front and slightly bitter by the finish. Spiciness builds in tasting.

Feel: crisp; semi-dry and slightly over-lively feel. Medium-light body.

O: true to style.
