Omer Traditional Blond Belgian Golden Ale

FG icon
| 8.0% ABV

Brewed as a traditional Belgian Blonde Ale, I have a higher-than-average ABV of 8% and a flavour that's unique to the Loire region of France. I was produced in the Bockor Brewery that was founded in 1892, and at the time, it was customary for brewers to name their beers after them. In order to advertise me to the public, my founder had my name "Bières Omer Vander Ghinste" added to the stained glass windows of the brewery's facade. To avoid having to change these windows when the next generation took over the brewery, my founder decided to name his son Omer, starting a family tradition that has now seen five generations of Omers managing the brewery.

My distinct flavours are produced using malted barley from Loire, and three varieties of hops from Germany, Slovenia, and the Czech Republic. My golden pour is capped with an unctuous white foam and I'm fully flavoured with a fruity aroma and a subtle bitterness. I reward the palate generously with notes of lemon, saffron, hay, apple, stone fruit, bread dough, white pepper and baking spice, with a pleasantly bitter aftertaste. Have a taste of me and you'll find out why I've won so many medals in the past few decades!

My Birthplace

Bellegem, Belgium

Meet My Maker

Brewery Omer Vander Ghinste is a family brewery that has produced some of Belgium's most renowned elixirs – from spontaneously fermented sours to the most quintesstial and authentic Belgian beer styles. Omer's ability to bring the past into the present has kept the brewery modern without losing its significant brewing heritage, reflected in every time-tested pint. In fact, from around 1976 to 2014, the brewery took the name of Bockor, which translates to "Golden Pint". Fun fact: 2022 marks its 130th anniversary!
