I saw a bottle of OMER. with a 'Trappist' logo.

The bottles that are used by some Trappist breweries, are almost identical to the bottles used in our brewery. The only difference is a small reliëf drawing in the glass with the Trappist logo. Sometimes, this bottle is not filtered out by our inspection machine. Don't worry, the bottle has been inspected on all other aspects (such as sterility, hygiene,...), and is completely safe. The beer in the bottle is an OMER. with the same high quality as all the other OMER. bottles. Cheers!
