Ommegang Fleur de Houblon Summer Ale to Debut in May


(Cooperstown, NY) – Brewery Ommegang has a new limited release beer on the way in May, Ommegang Fleur de Houblon. Below is the brewery website 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.

Available for a limited time in 1/2 BBLs and 12oz bottles starting in May 2013.
