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

Foffern (1294) - Bod, - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours a clear golden straw-yellow colour with a big frothy and white head which falls down pretty fast. Aroma of pale malt, hay, grass and some pepper, alcohol, citrus and belgian yeast. Not far from a pilsener. The flavour is not very impressive either with hay, sweet corn, hops and some spices and alcohol. The mouthfeel is soft and slick, and has a light to medium bitterness. Im a bit disappointed by this beer, and is pretty boring and too close to a light lager in aroma and flavour.

danielecamo (522) - ITALY - NOV 16, 2014
In bottiglia. Aroma di miele milefiori, camomilla. Al palato a dominare il miele e la dolcezza del malto con il contributo del luppolo praticamente impercettibile. Sbilanciata

Bottle @ The One, Brugge. Golden-blond with a thick frothy head. Light in its style despite its strength with some lager style malts evident.

kerenmk (2565) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Clear blond with a frothy white head. Some straw, a little corn and a little grass aroma, straight forward bitter, saaz-like hoppiness. Medium body, lots of carbonation, bitter finish. Straight forward, no-nonsense neer.

tricksta_p (1342) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2014
Aroma of fruits, yeast, light bready malts, some spices, floral hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate bittersweet finish. A little noticeable alcohol. Quite decent Belgian Strong Pale Ale.

Robe blonde dorée Arômes citronnés et herbacés Notes de citron et safran Cette bière belge possède des arômes fins et fruités, accompagnés d'une amertume subtile mais bien présente. Son goût est généreux avec des notes de citron, de safran, et l'arrière-bouche reste douce avec une légère amertume.

Have had this before but now rating it. Pours classic Belgian strong golden - huge white head, just slightly hazy bright gold liquid. Great aroma with clean funk and some bread. Taste has a lot more bready / malty than I was expecting - I think its partly because the carbonation is in such balance. This is a great beer - really just textbook. Id put it up against Duvel any day.
