3.75/5 rDev -6.5%
Bottle poured into glass
Billowy white two finger foam cap subsides with very good lacings. Golden yellow, clear liquid with slight carbonation.
Aroma of citrus lemon and grass
Lemony taste on the front of the tongue spreads to the sides. Grassy kick on the side of the tongue. Bitterness on the sides and back . Slight bitterness on the aftertaste
Quite a bit of carbonation on the sip
Another very good beer from Ommegang

3.5/5 rDev -12.7%
07/23/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Finding some taps left from a Belgian promotion I tried a taste comparison of this & d’Achouffe Houblon Chouffe, which is a triple. Due to circumstances beyond my control, (sort of), like limited funds & being dramatically close to my self imposed ABV limit, I ended up with the Ommegang. No regrets but I will be looking out for the Chouffe. It's robust flavor, body & alcohol were impressive but not of the moment. Not out of place by any means, just bad timing. It's even usurped what started a glowing review of the Ommegang. I'll be looking forward to both, equally, in the future.

4.5/5 rDev +12.2%
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 6.8 % abv and there is a nice short description of the beer.
Appearance: The look of the body is cloudy and the color is a light golden hue. It’s head is tall bright white in color and long lasting. It slowly settles to a thin creamy foam covering which leaves nice lace patterns on the glass.
Smell: Fleur De Houblon has a classic Belgian character. Pale light grain with classic spicey Ommegang yeast mixed with some light citrusy, grassy and spicy hops.
Taste / Palate: The nose and tongue are right on the same page. The base is light pale grain with white pepper and clove like spicy yeast. It also brings a light and pleasant Belgian funk/barnyard note to the mix. Hops add a touch of dryness and mild bitterness along with balanced grassy, floral and citrusy lemon flavor notes. The palate is on and very easy drinking. It feels smooth and creamy yet still lively with carbonation.
Notes: In my opinion Ommegang just keeps on hitting home runs and this is no exception!
