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

Blonde/yellow color, nice white head. Pretty simple taste; much carbonation, kind of bitter, kind of strong, but not really complex.

Straling (361) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Pours a slightly cloudy blond colour with good carbonation. Dry, bitter, and yeasty aroma. Nice sweet/bitter hoppy taste, some fruity notes there, bit of sour tangyness going down. Smooth thin/medium bodied texture, goes down smooth.

330 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a big, stable, creamy white head. Aroma is mild, light fruity and spicy with hint of white sugar. Flavor is sweet pale malt, some fruit, spicy, yeast and white sugar, not much bitterness. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. Decent for a Blonde, relatively tasty with surprisingly grayed alcohol, I.E. the alcohol is present in the flavor but not really boozy. This one felt right for me today.

Een goed, deftig blond bier zonder meer. Er zijn er nog zo, maar er zijn er ook een pak slechter.

Helles Bier mit schnell zerfallenden Schaum. Sehr bitter im Vordergrund und auch im Nachgang recht bitter. Malzig mit leichter Alkoholnote. Hopfen nicht zu schmecken. Für mich kein überragendes Bier.

Bottle. In Omer glass. Pours like a Pilsner. Strong foam head. Looks beautiful: nice bubbling due to the carbonation, all around the glass. Aroma is distinct: hints of copper, cherry, hint of pine, refreshing malts, some yeast. Nice. Taste starts with a kick: quite sour and bitter, a little boozy even (but nice!). The beer tastes well-rounded: there is a refreshing tingling sensation in the first couple of seconds, a subtle build-up of sourness accompanied with alcohol midway that slowly turns into a bitter after taste. I would say this is very much like a Duvel, but a little different.

Lore (1042) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 22, 2014
cloudy pale yellow colour, huge, white head; aroma of floral hops, hints of honey, yeasty notes, some alcohol and maybe bread; taste of malty sweetness, floral notes, yeast and alcohol; not too much hoppy bitterness; correct Belgian strong ale

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 Yellow colour, big white head in Omer’s beautiful glass. Aroma and taste are big on grainy and sweet malts and spicy yeasts. Good body, lively carbonation, nice bite.
