COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s an unassuming road leading to the priory. Here, off the corner of two intersecting roads, dedicated monks have been making beer for over 150 years. It’s always been a simple life – the kind that requires they brew only enough to sustain the activities of their monastery In the silence of passing seasons, they pray, they brew and retire in a solitary existence behind the sheltering walls. They live a most interesting life. Most likely one we wouldn’t sustain. Nearby, each summer, the trellised fields spring to life as rows of resinous green cones are trained toward the heavens. Rumor is some monks love these hops and being surrounded by budding yellow aromas and the leafy pungent fields inspires them. Since we weren’t sensible enough to locate our brewery near hop fields, we can only offer this blond ale in celebration of our Abbey brethren and their steadfast Devotion.

omhper (19975) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2008
Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival. Pils-like hazy golden with brief lively head. Grassy malt with butter undeneath. Dry, yet fruity with medium body. The grassy malt and hay-like hops makes it reminiscent of a pilsener, but fruitier. Mineraly finish with lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel is cleaner than in my dreams, but it remains very drinkable. I really appreciate the effort to brew tradition style laid back beers, but this is no real masterpiece yet. For ultimate perfection perhaps 10 generations of practive is needed?

Cloudy orange brown beer. Good white head. Smooth with hints of orangey marmalade and a touch of grapefruit. The fruit doesn’t taste like hoppy fruit though! Slighty bitter finish. Smooth and very drinkable.
