Pours hazy, light-amber in color. Nice head formation and retention, while lacing is only sparse. On the nose, traditional Belgian yeastiness blends with a bright, hoppy citrus character. Chalky, phenolic presence at first followed by sourdough bread. Bright citrus note of lemon zest at the end.

Hop bitterness is prevalent on the palate, but it's definitely short of what you'd find in an American IPA. Bright, citric hop presence without the pungent, dank character of that style. Brisk, well-carbonated, if a bit prickly. Scrubs the palate nicely. Light malt profile with fruity esters providing the bulk of the flavor notes: green apple, white grape.

I've tried a couple Belgian IPAs previously and found I didn't like the combination of Belgian yeast and big IBUs. Fleur de Houblon was more to my liking, with a strong hop citric hop presence that did not overpower the BPA flavor.
