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

Lovely beer. Golden with big foamy head that has good retention. Fruits and some hoppy floral notes in the nose. Malts are noticeable as well and some banana sweetness coming from the yeast. First impression: wow! Take a sip. Strong alcohol gives this beer a ’bite’. Some sour lemon taste. Spices, belgian yeast, malts and hoppy bitterness. Fruity alcoholic dry finish, leaving you to want more. This beer is a trip. Very skillfully brewed. Dare I say it? Better than a Duvel?

Simple taste in the beginning but tries to get fancy at the end but comes up short. Too cloudy for a blonde Belgium.
