COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oerbier means original, from the spring. This beer has been brewed in small scale (5 gallons). Oerbier is brewed from no less than 6 malts. Poperinge Golding hops in flowers and a special yeast which makes it a little tart, especially with aging. At the brewery we have excellent cellars which have a constant temperature of 8°C and allow Oerbier to age at its best. After a couple of years Oerbier tastes like it should have been blended with wine … Oerbier has been refermented in the bottle and contains a layer of yeast, having vitamins B. NAT en STRAF on the glasses means WET and STRONG, a warning for the 7.5 vol. alcohol content. The little person on the glasses is the Oerbier man, a simple creature who holds a brewers fork in his right hand, symbolizing the work and science, but looking to the other side, the result of all this, the glass of (Oer)beer. The artwork on the poster is a wallpainting found in Spain, (Altamira) and is considered by art lovers as being the best prehistoric art work (30,000 years BC). On the other hand we have Oerbier started in 1980, going on with the tradition.

Bruin bier met beige schuim en kleine gistdeeltjes. Niet slecht, maar ook niet heel bijzonder.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2015 From zombier. In La Trappe glass. Another good brew from de dolle. However, I prefer their blonde ones

leghorn99 (101) - Livorno, ITALY - JUN 24, 2015
Il colore è marrone rossastro, quasi tonaca di frate, opalescente; molto generoso il "cappello" di schiuma, color ocra, fine, cremoso e molto persistente. Naso molto pronunciato e dolcissimo: toffee, zucchero di canna, frutta sotto spirito (uvetta, prugne), datteri, leggeri sentori di pane nero. Molto pulito. Il corpo è pieno, con una carbonazione abbastanza sostenuta. Il gusto non si discosta molto dall’aroma: molto dolce, ma meno pulito, ripropone la stessa frutta sotto spirito, toffee, liquirizia. Ottimo l’accenno di carattere vinoso. La bevuta continua nel (troppo) dolce, ed il palato rimane sempre abbastanza appiccicoso dopo ogni sorso. C’è un finale leggermente amaricante (frutta secca) ed etilico ma non basta a riportare il necessario equilibrio. Questa Oerbier si beve abbastanza bene, l’alcool c’è e riscalda ma non fa sentire troppo la sua presenza.

There are beers reference. A beer that evolves beautifully in the glass inside the mouth bottle. I do not know if the best is the smell, the taste in the mouth, the color, in short, a beer brutal!

Deep amber, clear. Full body, flavorful, intense heat. Sweetness is followed by mild bitterness. Fruity, alcoholic. Rich and powerful, good way to finish a tasting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pistacho (47) - SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
On tap at Café Gaspar. Sweet fruity nose, perhaps so fruity that it seems a little bit solventy. That´s a greedy one, good body and caramel notes. It’s simple but sincere. Liked it.

jamesie1857 (1643) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2015
330ml bottle from Belgium in a Box - Pours a cloudy brown with huge beige head and very active carbonation. The nose is mellow and sweet, with caramel, various dark fruits, a slight winey note, and a touch of spicy alcohol. The flavour is full of dark fruits. Plum, raisin, a little bit of sour black cherry sweets, then a soft caramel sweetness. The finish is slightly dry and rather vinous, but quickly warms with the booziness kicking in. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky. Best I’ve had in a while this.

UXO (763) - CANADA - MAY 21, 2015
Pours clear medium amber with two fingers plus of fluffy light tan head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is dark boozy fruit (dates and raisins), caramel malt, brown sugar, green apple, other stone fruits. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild tart, very light bitter. (8/10) Medium body, prickly carbonation, medium duration finish with a little lingering alcohol warming. (4/5) Quite a nice BSDA, if a bit on the pricey side for where I got it. Very mild considering the beefy ABV, almost sherry-like and quite good for sipping. Almost feels like there’s a little brett in there contributing to the mild tartness, but it’s quite restrained. Sweetness is similarly restrained, and kept well in check by the pleasantly prickly carbonation. Certainly much better than the amateurish label might have you expecting, and having read their writeup, I’d like to cellar some for future experimentation. (16/20)
