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 8C 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.

rbrazell (1696) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Chestnut pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of brown sugar, roasted nuts, candy sugars, figs and grapes, with notes of spices and yeast. Effervescent body with the sweeter notes hit the front with roasted nuts, toasted bread, candy sugars, dark fruits mid palate and finishing off with touches of spice. Mmmmm.

@Mechelen, Schenkt bruin met licht kaki kraag. Aroma is zoetig, mout, caramel, donker fruiten zoals rozijnen. smaken zijn gelijk een volle prikkelende co2 in de mond, caramel, rozijn, alcohol. goede donkere fruiten en kandijsuiker, redelijke body, redelijk zoet en redelijk fuitig, mis een beetje de zure toetsen om het tot een echte kraker te maken, jammer had met een beetje verheugd op dit biertje..wellicht was die gewoon wat te hoog.

Bottle. Reddish brown with creamy beige head. Fruity bready aroma and a hint of spice. Initial taste quite sweet becoming slightly acidic and sour with a refreshing bitter finish. Full carbonation and mouthfeel. Decent.

23 year old 1991 vintage bottle at Akkurat Stockholm, april 19th 2014. Deep red body, unclear, with a small beige head. Aroma of berries, branch, moss, yeast. Taste is lightly sour with plums, roast, wood, nuts. Deep complexity, sweet raisin and yeast aftertaste. Really nice.

wvhoran (324) - Tasmania, - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle. Mahogany-brown with a large and lasting tan head. The aroma is of yeast, caramel malt, fruity (plums, something sweet like dates or prunes). It has too much carbonation for our liking. The flavour has smooth malts, chocolate, fruits, distinct yeast with a lightly acidic finish, some bitterness.

conway (1531) - - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle. Dark ruby/mahogany with a thick eggshell colored head. Aroma is bread crusts and construction paper. Taste has lots of caramel and apple but is badly oxidized. Bottle is about a year old and didn't hold up well. Substantial booze. Rich mouthfeel and strong carb. Will look for a fresher bottle because this one unfortunately didn't work out.

bonkiedeaap (284) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2014
Bought this bottle at de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a dark brown color and a nice cream colored head with a lot of bubbles. The aroma is very fruity and also has tones of yeast, bread and, licorice and candy. The taste is fruity and start to evoluate into a nice freshness and little sourness in which the tones from the aroma come clearly forward. This makes this beer well balanced. The finish is light sour and a has a medium bitterness, noticable for a while. Bravo to this beer, one of the better strong ales Ive tasted so far.

hopwine (361) - Bend, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2014
