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

ignorant (50) - madrid, SPAIN - FEB 10, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2016 dark, murky brown beer, with plenty of beige foam. Aroma of malt, caramel, dark fruit and vanilla. Brett some fresh yeast. creamy on the palate, with malty taste with hints of molasses, candy, cake, again dark fruit, ripe plums spices and yeast. Something dry and sour at the end, with some connotation of red wine. In fact there is a special edition wine aged in barrels of Bordeaux. Alcohol well integrated.

Sample at Winking Lizard. Cloudy amber color with a medium fluffy white head that dissipates gradually. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, yeast and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of ripe fruit, earthy yeast and grainy malt. The finish is fruity with a cherry and fig aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Veel schuim bij het inschenken. Donkere kleur. Nogal zoet, kalishesmaak. Licht verteerbaar, maar keert er van om.

StoutHead (941) - DENMARK - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours cherry-red with a large off-white head. Aroma of fruits, spices, hops and nuts. Taste is pretty much like the aroma but also with flavours of caramel and molasses. Full body and very active carbonation. Bitter and fruity finish. Awesome. I’ve had this one many times - even at the brewery and it never dissapoints. Love it.

sjogro (2193) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle at home. Bought at Plan B. Cap reads >MAY2017. Pours dark brown with huge fluffy cream/tan head. Roasted sweet malt, oily, melasse, licorice stick, spices, nutty, piney, yeast and during the second half of my glass dough, spring onion and lemongrass, aroma’s keep on opening up! Amazing! There’s blueberries in the muffin dough. I feel like I’m fucking stoned. Chocolate and mint coming in now. Taste is moderate sweet and below moderate bitter, yeastiness keeps sweet and bitter compact and adds a tart finish. Body is full and texture is slick, thick and oily. Carbo is spikey but activity is average. Very nice beer! And NAT & STRAF indeed, drinks easy, will get you tripping. Reminds me of certain members from the Rochefort family.
