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 8įC and allow Oerbier to age at its best. After a couple of years Oerbier tastes like it should have been blended with wine Ö 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.

Pours chestnut brown with a big tan head. Aroma is sweet spices and alcohol. Taste is pretty much the same. Spice, nutty, plums, and an alcohol kick. This beer will warm you right up. Good stuff.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 Deep brown colored beer with a creamy froth. Aroma of spices, raisons and lots of sweetness. The taste is sweet due to lots of raisons and sugar. Alcohol comes too much through at the finish.

Murky brown beer with creamy lasting head. The Aroma impression is bread- and winish with citric notes. The taste is very malty and cakey.The aftertaste ends in well balanced bitterness. Carbonation and alcoholic touch is superb!

Pours dark brown with ruby highlights. Lasting beige head. Aroma of toffee, mild fruits and some spicy herbal notes. Flavour is similar, fruity caramel notes balanced out with a spicy dry finish. Medium-full bodied. Very nice sipper.

Murky brown, small but creamy and lasting head. Aroma was bread and wine, with some grape notes, sort of like a cheap sangiovese. Very much a dark fruits and bread flavor, with a tinge of Belgian sourness on the finish. There is a bit of alcohol in the finish as well. Nice stuff.

Delicious. This is somewhere between a Scottish ale and a Belgian. It has the sweet maltiness of a Scottish ale, yet with the yeastiness of a Belgian. With the Scot character, it has the sweetness, with burnt sugar, fruit, and spice. The Belgian tradition comes through with the yeast, bitterness and citrus. Fantastic.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 33cl bottle. deep brown pour, lots of yeast in the bottle. Smells spiced and delivers on the palate even more than expected. Strong, burnt sugar taste with massive raisins. Tart finish is reminiscent of wine. Warming, noticable amount of alcohol. For sipping. Not specifically my kind of flavor, but nevertheless a memorable brew.

33cl bottle, carried back from Belgium in March í03...cap lists a BBD of 09 2004...Iím about 5 months past that. Pours nicely with a good head, brown colored beer.Lovely aroma of liquorice, spiced pumpkin, and overwhelmingly RAISINS!! Sweet and fruity, nice body that isnít heavy, but full..sweetness in the finish is like chocolate, never cloying. Fruity with a spicy undercurrent, and just a touch of warming alcohol. This is a yummy brown ale from Belgium.

Smooth, spiced brown Belgian with a powerful bite to it. Thereís an unmistakable sense of quality in this one -- you just canít fake the good stuff. Terrific mouthfeel and feeling to the stomach. My first De Dolle, and if this is anything to go by, itíll be the first of a long line.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2005
Sugary sweet, caramelized, fruity aroma of raisins, grapes, pineapple, grapefruit and just a hint of butterscotch. Opaque dark amber-brown with dense, fine-bubbled tan head that lasts nicely and coats the glass. Sweet malty flavour has plenty of dark fruits, a lightly roasted character, fair herbal hop flavour and a light bitterness that takes the edge off the big sweet malt profile to keep it from ever becoming cloying. A pleasant breath of alcohol in the finish. Lightly warming with rich, thick, full body, and moderate fine-bubbled, soft carbonation that luxuriates on the tongue. Bottle (Institut de la BiŤre - Jan. 2005).
