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

I personally was a little disappointed with this blond. Pretty much a bog standard lager, with no defining qualities. Still, very well made and makes for easy drinking.

Een redelijk zwaar bier, traag te drinken en ervan genieten. Diepe smaak en goede schuimkraag.

Very nice golden yellow body, numbers of fine bubbles, fine and dense foam, creamy and lacy. Very pleasant aroma, delicate and exciting; agrums, flowers, fruits, grass. Beginning with a metallic, astringent taste though very pleasant - and banana maybe? hint of honey; fine bitterness, dry finish.

33cl bottle@Crowne Plaza Brussels in Omer glass@approx 7 degrees C. Pours clear yellow with a large white head which quickly dissipates leaving a decent lacing. Aroma of malt, grass and hops with a little caramel for sweetness and a twang of yeast. Very well balanced beer with fine hops notes being balanced by the malt and with a pleasant rather than domineering sweetness. Definitely as a beer should be in my taste by if I had to chose, I would prefer a Duvel in this category.

Batavi (191) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2015
Fles gekocht bij AH, uitgeschonken in Gouden Carolus bokaal. Helder goudblond bier, met een witte rotsachtige schuimkraag, die na enige tijd wegzakt. Aroma’s van mout, kruidige hopsoorten, Belgische gist, koriander en fruitige tonen van peer en banaan. Het smaakpallet is klassiek Belgisch, beetje tripel achtig, zoet, kruidig met een stevige carbonatie, en een aangename hopbitter in de afdronk. Er zitten smaaktonen in van mout, witte kandijsuiker, peer en banaan, specerijen en kruiden als koriander, nootmuskaat en witte peper, met een florale hopbittere finish. Geslaagde Belgian Strong Ale, gebalanceerd met aangename aroma’s en smaakpallet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aromat bogaty, przeniczny, troche cytrynowy. Wygląd perfekcyjny: mętne, kolor słomkowy, niesamowicie gęsta piana. Średnie nasycenie. W smaku goryczka, pszeniczny charakter, trochę alkohol. Bardzo dobrze. Zwłaszcza, że kosztowane w samej Brukseli :)
