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

sneevel (71) - - NOV 24, 2012
Nice aromas of fruit, esters, spices, cloves. Great mouthfeel, and decent concentration. Same flavours in the mouth. Good balancing hops. Not terribly exciting, but a well made beer which camouflages its eight percent well. Drinkable.

Lore (994) - 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

fkoolen (227) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2014
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.

inbirraveritas (1216) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 7, 2014
Bottled, 33 cl. Opal yellow coloured one with a creamy and lasting white pillow on its top, which remains finger thick. Low-keyed fruity nose. Tasteing starts crisp followed by a mild citrus fruity aroma escorted by hints of apples, bread and bubblegum. Dry, spicy and somewhat warming aroma underpainted by lemon peel. An easy brew in a good sense.

Holmen2 (682) - NORWAY - JUL 1, 2014
Clear golden. Persistent white head. Fruity green bananas, dried tropical fruits and wine gum. Very fruity taste, well balanced with moderate bitterness. One of the better blonds.

Headbanger (3230) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2014
11.2oz bottle 6/28/14 (Armanetti’s-Aurora)-50° in Trappist Glass-Pours yellow with a small white head and great big floaties. Aroma yeast, wheat, and hops. Taste of the same with a bit of malt on the back end. This light bodied brew is a bit weak.

graziano85 (290) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 16, 2014
Golden colour and a big dense head. Smell is yeasty, malt and a clear alcohol hint. Taste is yeasty too, bread crust, and again too much alcohol in the taste. Nothing special.

nathanvc (41) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2014
Appears clear golden with a frothy white head. The aroma has hay, citrus, herbs and alcohol. It tastes nicely sweet with a light bitter finish. The body and carbonation are medium, texture can become a bit creamy. Despite the bitter, grassy finish a refreshing beer.

Bosbouw (1123) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2014
Iets troebele gouden kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hop, kruiden en bloemen. Smaakt bitter, iets zoetig, kruiden en hop. Iets te zoet.

Vignale (1990) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2014
Flaska från Beernavigator. Gyllengul, klar, högt vitt skum. Torr, doft med kalk, mineraler, citrusskal, blommig parfym och lite jäst. Maltfokuserad, säd, kryddad snaps, citrusskal. Lätt sötma, lite alkohol som slår igenom, lätt beska. En kraftfullt ljus belgare som funkar utmärkt till lite fetare fisk. Trevlig kryddighet.
