This feels weird to type...this is the first Ommegang product that hasn't blown me away. It's not a bad beer by any means, but it tastes a lot like a handful of other summer ales I've had. It's not something I'd feel confident being able to pick out of a crowd. That said, it's still crisp like a summer ale should be and it's worth buying again when it's actually summer. I have no earthly idea why it's available in February in Pennsylvania.

Hazy yellow gold with a billowy white head that needs time to settle. Lacing on glass. Smells bright--lemony, floral, herbaceous. Same in the flavor, with the floral aspect most noticeable. Seriously, my dry mouth feels like I've been eating flower petals...but in a good way. Not a lot of complexity, but it is a summer offering. At almost 7%, it's not wimpy, and has stood up to a couple of seasons gone by.

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.
