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. For more information on Oerbier's recent recipe history, see the following article: http://www.bunitedint.com/Products/de_dolle/oerbier-re_evolution.html

Een heerlijk bier, met de smaak van karamel en hop. Mag zich meten met Rochefort 10. Zeer vol en uitgebalanceerd.

Nische (1115) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2015
Pours a cloudy dark amber brew with a huge reddish head with good retention. Aroma of brown sugar, roasted nuts, candy sugars, figs and grapes, with notes of spices and yeast. Taste is overripe grapes and yeast together with stonefruit with a slight sourness in the finish

Holmen1 (3287) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 3, 2015
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt med Ovesen mens esb-vørteren kjølner: gusher raskt brakt under kontroll. Høyt storboblet beige skum som legger seg til en film. ABV is 9%. Opp gjennom skummet stiger en Intens og fruktig, bærlignende aroma. I den vinøse smaken finner jeg også litt krydder. En kraftig maltkropp holder det hele elegant i sjakk. Storartet øl, og de 9 på Richters skala merkes først i magen.

Holmen2 (1657) - NORWAY - APR 3, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 03.04.15. A gusher. Nutty brown. Huge and foamy pale brown head. Aroma of ripe berries, dried berries and fruit and some malt. Similarly fine and fruity taste. Complex, while easily drinkable. Very carbonated.

Donker Amber kleurig bier met een witte schuimkraag. Smaak het zoete van aardbei en rozebottel en een minimale bitter afdronk. Gehad als kado voor Thijmen.

asheft (2680) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Bottle. Fresh strawberries in the nose. Hazy garnet under an eternal, rocky, tan cover. Extremely fruity estery flavour that is slightly medicinal. Accents of strawberry, white grape, and stone fruit ending with a moderate to medium, dry, Belgian bitterness. Medium body, smooth and warming. Unique.

thanatosti (1097) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought from a colleague. Hazy dark brown with a big off-white head. Malty aroma with lots of dark fruits and some caramel and Belgian yeast. Taste is bittersweet. Body is massive but due to the very lively carbonation it is experienced lighter than all those heavy abts. Warming alcohol in the finish. Great Belgian beer.

poured from a bottle. This beer has a firm tartness to it. Some caramel notes as well as a fruitiness and slight earthy character. Not bad.
