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.

Dark brown-reddish color with big beige head. Dark fruits, spices, candied sugar. A bit of tartness still, heavy body and an extremely rich taste. Medium carbonation. This is a serious win. Can compete with the good Abts/Quadrupels. More intensely fruity than these.

In bottiglia da 33cl. Colore bruno, schiuma fine, molto abbondante e persistente. Aroma di frutta secca, uvetta, nocciola. Al palato una nota calda ed etilica evidente con sentori di frutta secca, uvetta, leggero caramello. Finale che bilancia la dolcezza generale della birra.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2015 De Dolle Oerbier uitgeschonken in Oerbierglas. Bij het openen van het flesje komt er al wat schuim uit. Een mooie volle beige schuimkraag dus in het glas, kleur van het bier is donker roodbruin licht wazig. De geur is kruidig met Belgische gist. De smaak is stevig eerst zoetig en dan licht zurig, beetje wijnachtig, lekkere vrij complexe smaak. Smaaktonen van kandijsuiker, hout en licht zurige en zacht bittere hopsmaak. Het vrij hoge koolzuur gehalte is wel duidelijk aanwezig, De afdronk is medium lang, hoppig en licht droog met een warme alcoholische afsluiter. Een goed voorbeeld weer van een uitstekend Belgisch bier dit Oerbier, zeker eentje die ik vaker zal drinken. Niet zo complex en speciaal als Stille Nacht, maar absoluut weer een mooi kwaliteitsproduct van de Dolle Brouwers.

Damn this is one fine dark Belgian ale. I’m incredibly impressed by it’s creaminess, rich aroma and wonderful taste. It’s Palate is wonderful and leaves a very nice bitterness behind. Love it!

Not bad, but too much bread and yeast bulge. More precisely overlap everything else
