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.

maybe its the coriander and burnt toffee and orange and melon, pepper, usually a potent turnoff for my sensitive palate. Very much like a brown ale to me,

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 8, 2005
UPDATED: APR 7, 2008 ’03 33 cl bottle. Amber color with a nice head that dissolves into just a thin sheet. Aroma of De Dolle yeast, apples, caramel malt, oak and candi sugars. I did get some coriander, orange and burnt caramel out of this awesome beer.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - APR 7, 2005
One of my first Belgians--and in retrospect, it is like the name of its brewers, a bit odd. Strong aroma, semi-acidic body with yeast and hop notes. There are beers I like better but this one’s unique.

Choos (666) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2005
Aroma: malt and alcohol very powerful aroma. Apperance: cloudy red/brown with a tan head and good lacing. Flavour: prominant alcohol, malt and great non herbal hop flavours. Palate: medium to thick mouthfeel with a lasting maltiness and some lingering carbon.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2005
Robe acajou foncée. Arômes et saveurs d’alcool. Corps voluptueux. Saveurs complexes et notes de gomme balloune. Levure présente en bouche. Très bon!

Lunkie (1560) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2005
Sweet hop malt spiritus aroma. Cloudy brown colour with good head and lacing. Smooth sharp hoppy spiritus flavour with a hint of malt. Long smooth bitter palate.

pilsnerrogge (2630) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2005
Copper coloured with a truckload of sediments. HUGE head. Citrus-fruity yeast- aroma. Sweetish, frutiy, peppry flavour. Rich and warming. The taste of alcohol may be a bit too upfront.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Pours rich amber coppery, wispy head with touches of lace (nothing as chunky as that from Arabier). Aroma is almost pure alcohol whiff, with a touch of almond. Flavor is a bit sour, light malty, and minimally hopped. Smooth mouthfeel, with brisk tangy finish. Nice.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
bold fruit forward beer with wine and port like qualities. Dark fruits and Turbinado candy sugar make for for a very satisfying brew.

guzzler67 (1563) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Hazy, deep amber appearance with an aroma that was fruity, malty and somewhat bready. Spicy, tart fruit taste with hints of apple and berries. Nicely carbonated with a full-bodied mouthfeel. Finishes with a note of anise. On tap at Max’s.
