BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States
ommegang.com

Style: Belgian Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Nothing is more evocative of summer than the beautiful aroma of flowers, and the favored flowers of brewers are hops. Our brand new summer ale, Fleur de Houblon (Hop Flowers), is brewed to bring the many elements of summer into a refreshing and easy-to-drink Belgian-style ale.

Fleur de Houblon is a rich gold color with distinct floral hops in the aroma that follow through in the taste. Whole-cone Bravo hops are used to impart their earthy, fruity, and floral aromas and flavors. The body and flavor are clean and dry, with pleasing complexity and spicy notes from both primary and secondary fermentation with our unique Ommegang house yeast.

Served a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a foamy white head that persists and leaves great lacing on the glass. Floral hops, medicinal, soft wheat, coriander and light fruity esters from the yeast make up the delicious aroma. Taste is delicious wheat, floral hops fresh apricots and a favorable spicy yeast character. Mouthfeel is light body with delicate carbonation and a semi-dry finish.
Overall this beer has great appeal for the style and is precise in balance and the taste is super fresh and thirst quenching. Another great beer from Ommegang!
