So I went to the grocery store today and stocked up for a few days of tastings. Amongst these beers was Omer Traditional Blond, one I had not seen or heard anything about, although I rarely go to the grocery store and browse the beer aisle-I know what I like.
Omer Traditional Blond: 8%abv Recommended serving temperature 6-8C 43-46F.
Upon opening the bottle you are welcomed by the sound of fizzing, having said this, once poured into a glass it immediately fills to the top with a thick white foam. Highly carbonated. Once things settle down the beer has a pale, golden-yellow opaqueness about it. The alcohol content and yeastiness of the beer are there upon first taste. I am drinking it from the bottle and there are some beers where it feels as though the beer has adopted a bit of its flavor from that processing. I am not overly enthused about this beer, I am one for second chances and will revisit it in the future. If you have any thoughts on this beer please let me know. For after work today I recommend you stick with your go-to beer. That is all.
Having already written about Grimbergen Blonde, I don’t believe these two beers to be in the same class, as Grimbergen clearly tastes better.
