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.

4.04/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: 4.25 - Straw colored, with a lot of yeasty haze, and a dense half inch of very white foam.
S: 4.0 - Lemon fresh fruity scent, and very floral hops.
T: 4.0 - Quite fruity flavor, nicely citrus, with pleasant bitterness and earthy, floral hop flavor. Though it uses the "standard house yeast", I don't get as many spicy phenols as in most Ommegang beers--perhaps fermented at a lower temp?
M: 4.25 - Ommegang always gets mouthfeel right, with lots of carbonation, and a soft, creamy body.
O: 4.0 - Very well-crafted beer, though it doesn't stand out as a favorite among their very high-quality line-up. It's still very good.
