OMER. traditional blond is made of excellent summer malted barley from the Loire region (France) and pure water. During the brewing process sugars are liberated that will serve later to nourish the yeast. During the cooking process 3 varieties of hops from Germany, Slovenia and the Czech Republic are added to give the beer the specific aroma and bitterness

F: huge white frothy head, long lasting. C: hazy opaque golden yellow. A: nice floral, yeast, spice, malt. T: almost like a saison taste, very good balanced malt with hoppy complex taste, coriander, bready, crisp higher carbonation, medium body, black pepper, pear, honey, yeast, very nice beer, I recommend to taste.

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Dorada limpia y clara con preciosa espuma blanca extra duradera y muy abundante (aspecto de pilsen recien servida). Aroma nulo. Potente en boca, predominantemente amarga, pero tambien con tonos frutales, manzana verde y florales muy agradables. Buena sin destacar en nada.

Mjp12 (757) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2015
A Belgian ale that is dominated by sweet fruits, rather than any yeasty complexity, not my kind of beer.

thirstyrabbit (1411) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle. Semi hazy golden body with a tall head. Mild malty and yeasty aroma with soft lager-like hoppiness. Sweet taste with some earthy lager type of hoppiness. Otherwise a pretty standard Belgian Blond Ale. Slightly harsh/metallic finish. Quite good, but considering the number of Belgian Blond Ales (a pretty homogeneous style, yet somehow deemed not worthy of a separate subcategory here) out there it’s rather forgettable. Does not have anything that would really grab me.

minutemat (2397) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2015
330ml bottle, thanks to jefVerstraete. Pours blonde with big foamy white head. Sweet, yeasty aroma. Taste is sugary sweet, smooth with yeast, light hops, very flavoursome. Great beer.

Salmaneser (64) - BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ home. Golden yellow beer, minimal white head. Sweet, fruity aroma, apples and banana. Taste and palate are very pleasant, bitter aftertaste that lingers shortly.

huineman (397) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 10, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2015 Pours golden with frothy head. Aroma is intense: bitter herbs, iron. Taste is powerful, structured, metallic and savoury. Very long bitter ending. Very good ale.

martjoobolut (1467) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 1, 2015
0,33L bottle (from Wine of Galilee). Pours golden with huge off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, grains, malt. Flavor follows the nose. Finish has some bitterness and metallic notes. Alcohol is rather well covered. Overall: good enough to get drunk.
