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.

Draft at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a medium dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was dark, dried fruits. Light sweet, fizzy funky yeast notes. Bold, but still refreshing.

Do tap. Marrom-avermelhada, opaca, espuma de boa formação. Aroma de frutas escuras (ameixa, uva), carregado de leveduras e um toque leve de malte. O sabor acompanha o aroma, com menos levedura e mais doce. O final é levemente picante, um pouco tostado. Carbonatação média, suave para beber, quase não se nota a presença do álcool. Ótima experiência.

AleRider78 (623) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Acquired via trade with Chopz. 300ml bottle. Bottle cap says bottled 2012. Pours a huge frothy beige head and has an extremely murky brown appearance. Lacing is kinda weak. Aromas of roasted barley malts, dried fruits (raisins, plums) and spices. Flavours are plentiful malty, dark roasted malt, chocolate, spices. Alcohol is quite evident and actually a bit overwhelming. 9% but maybe a bit more now. The finish is very dry and tastes very much like prunes or prune juice.

On tap at the Trappist. It pours an amber color with an off white head. The aroma has some fruitcake, baked bread, brown sugar and light notes of clove spice. The flavor is spicy with more clove up front, cinnamon, chili powder and fruitcake. High carbonation and really lively on the palate. Good.

SkillsFactory (521) - ITALY - JUN 6, 2016
Tra il rosso rubino e il tonaca di frate, schiuma beige di persistenza esemplare. Aroma fruttato fantastico: banana matura, pesca, pera, mela cotta e prugna, lievi note vinose ed oleose, lievito belga, note tostate ed erbacee. Al palato principalmente banana, mela e pera, lievito belga, finale tostato, un po’ "cioccolatoso" ed erbaceo accompagnato da note vinose e legnose. Corpo pieno, ben carbonata.

Spina @ scurreria. Marrone scuro con bella schiuma. Bevuta un pò fredda, comunque si sentiva un bel corpo e frutta matura

Cieszylem się z ostatniego wysypu belgów, a tu kolejne przegazowane (w zamyśle niewłaściwie przechowywane i/lub stare) piwo. Gushing totalny. Chociaż połowa ocalała. Aromat zdominowany przez cukiuer kandyzowany, zioła, karmel i utlenienie. Do tego karmel i owoce - śliwki i winogrona. Barwa rubinowa, zamglona, z wymuszoną, beżową pianą, która choć obfita szybko opada. Smak słodki z nutą kwaskową i alkoholową. W tle karmel, chleb, suszone owoce, melano. Goryczka - o dziwo - zaznaczona, choć tylko lekko drażniąca i przyjemna. Krągła pełnia, zdecydowanie wysokie wysycenie i kwaskowo- słodowy finisz z akcentem alkoholowym, rozgrzewającym przełyk. Pełnowartościowe mogłoby być niezłe.

Butelka z KiK, warka do zamazane, ale raczej swiezutka. Kosmicznie wysoka piana, choc niezbyt piekna jesli idzie o strukture, bardzo ciemny bursztynowy kolor piwa. aromaty to glownie swieze ciemne owoce (bardzo intensywne), suszone ciemne owoce (w tym rodzynki), lekki karmel... w sumie niewiele wiecej. To co czuc ma o dziwo wydzwiek kwaskowaty dzieki owocom (wisnie, czerwone porzeczki). Czuc tez nieco alko w stylu porto oraz lekka przyprawowosc belgijska. W ustach najpierw czuc bardzo wysokie, szczypiace wysycenie, warto nalewac z rozmachem ;) dalej faktycznie wyrazna kwaskowatosc i troche slodkosci. Generalnie tez powtorka aromatow. niewiele ciala. jak na taki ekstrakt i alkohol - jest bardzo rzeskie. jest bardzo dobre, niemniej przyznam sie, ze to nie moj kierunek BSDA, smakuje to jak imperial dubel ;) wiec jak na piwo z top50 to troche rozczarowanym...
