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

jerohen (2054) - Bussum, - JUL 8, 2012
Bottled 0.7 L. Clear golden colored, slightly hazy when pouring the last part of the bottle, thick lasting white head, lots of carbonation. Fruity and flowery nose, some hops. Refreshing medium bitter flavor, some hops, little bit spicy. Medium bitter finish. Not a very complex brew, but very well balanced and dangerously drinkable. Good beer.

Maakun (1170) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear golden with big white head. Candy, strawberries, sugary, lots of bitter herbs, lemon cakes, ras-al-hanout. Quite sweet with medium bitter herbal finish. Medium bodied with full carbonation and some alcohol. Nothing special.

Nocturne (1040) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear golden shade. Forms a large white head. Aroma is nettle, honey, grain. Malty taste with slight banana, pear and apple notes. It seems sweet but that’s kept in check by a dry finish. Drinkable but not the most distinctive.

Muggus69 (1394) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector BB 17.09.16 Pours a huge fluffy white head atop a clear pale gold body. Rather nice, pleasant sort of nose to it - sweet ripe pear, stonefruit-like esters, subtle floral hops, touch of sweet woody perfumey spices. Body full yet surprisingly delicate for its weight, fine carbonation. Palate is quite subtle, but nice - floral, herbal hops, sweet sugars & cereal malts, pear & apricot, doughy yeast with spicy, clove notes. Moderate bitterness, slight warmth, reasonably well balanced. A delicate, somewhat elegant, Belgian blonde - understated, often a rare attribute in the style.

Gangstergafje (84) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2015
Nice soft foam. The colour is bright golden/yellow. The beer is crystal clear. It looks very appealing. The smell is rather plain. Some beery smell and some sweet aroma’s. The taste is nice. It has a hint of normal pilsner. It has a full body, nice and sweet, but not to sweet. The bitterness is mild, but adequate. There is a touch of almond in it. This almond aroma stays in the finish, wich is nice.

RhetoricalAns (501) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
340 mL bottle. Golden blonde pour, light hazy. Finger of white fizzy head that swiftly turns into a thin cap. Citrus grain aroma. Taste has some pine hops at the end. Very effervescent. Made fine, overall very average.

Wow. A one of a kind beer. One of the best I’ve tasted in recent years. A nice dark bite, beautiful color and delightful aroma.

Jado (617) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2015
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy straw-gold with a sudsy white head and visible floaties. Aromas of orange juice, honey, grass, flowers and a hint of banana. Taste starts off with baked apple and orange zest before a peppery, grassy hop note powers through. Floral notes, lemon and more orange come through toward the end. Pleasant apple and lemon aftertaste. Like this a lot.
