The current flagship of the Omer Vander Ghinste Brewery, Omer Traditional Blond is an award-winning Belgian Strong Ale that pours pale gold with a thick white head. Using hop varieties from three different countries in a recipe that took two years to perfect, the brew is top fermented and bottle conditioned.

Aromas include citrus, apricot and honey with floral notes and spice. Taste follows the nose but includes a sweet malt crispness and a mild hop bite. A soft, smooth mouth-feel and dry finish help conceal the considerable 8.0% ABV.

Food Pairings

Appetizers & Salads: A fine accompaniment to pear and blue cheese salad, vegetable fritters or crab cakes.

Entrées: Try with pork tenderloin or sole meunière (fried Dover sole) or any favorite fish dish served with fries and a fresh salad.

Desserts: Particularly nice with any dessert featuring lemons or other citrus.


The Omer Vander Ghinste Brewery, named for its founder, began commercial brewing operations in 1892, and has been continuously in family hands since then. Still located in Bellegem, a village in the Flanders region of Belgium near the French border, the brewery released its very first ale to high acclaim and its fortunes have flourished ever since.

Helmed by five generations of the Vander Ghinste family – of whom all first-born sons are by tradition named Omer – Bockor depended upon a combination of brewers' craft, innovation, marketing savvy and tenacity to grow into an international brand, yet still it maintains close ties to the village in which it was born, striking a balance between modernity and tradition.

I loved the service, I love the selection not the website. We were delivered our order promptly. The only reason, was I didn't like the flavor of the beer. But anything to do with the website and their selection I would give 5+ stars. But rating the beer itself I didn't like the flavor. So unsure if this was a review for the beer or the website. So you got my feedback on both.
