OMER. Traditional Blond is the result of a craft that has been kept in the Vander Ghinste family for 120 years. For five generations, the recipes, brewing techniques and secrets have been passed on from father to son. The eldest son is always named OMER. When Rémi Vander Ghinste bought the brewery in 1892 for his son Omer, it was given the name ‘Breweries Omer Vander Ghinste’. This name was kept until 1977, when it was changed to ‘Bockor Brewery’ for commercial reasons.
This ale has a secondary fermentation in the bottle, and is brewed according to an original recipe. It contains
malted barley from the Loire region (France) and three varieties of aromatic hops from Germany, Slovenia and the Czech Republic. It is a full flavored beer with a fruity aroma and a subtle bitterness.
Omer should not be cellared. It is meant to be consumed as fresh as possible. To serve: Pour the beer slowly allowing the freshness of the hops to fully emerge and leave approximately 1/2 inch of beer (the yeast) in the bottle. The ideal serving temperature is between 42 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit.
