Return to List

Omer's Blond is made with malted barley from the Loire and three varieties of hops from Germany, Slovenia and the Czech Republic. It pours a slightly hazy golden color, with a white head that lingers and leaves beautiful lacing behind with each sip. The nose leads with subtle aromas of fresh grain and hop flower, backed by notes of lemony citrus, hay, apple flesh and bread dough. The dry palate offers more of the same in terms of flavor, with additional tones of ripe stone fruit that lend depth. Assertive carbonation helps to counter the rich malt and fruity core as well as the weight of the alcohol. Spicy hints of white pepper and baking spice grace the just-bitter finish. Lauren Buzzeo
