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.

StoutHead (942) - 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.

Bottle. Pours a really dark brown with a fading beige bubble head. Aroma of chocolate, nuts, dark fruits, figs, blackcurrant, spice. Taste is of nuts, toffee, wood, figs, brown sugar, spice on the finish. Medium carbonation, light oily mouthfeel.

sjogro (2267) - 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.

anstei (1012) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. A Belgian Strong on the sugary-candy side of the spectrum. Despite the heavy malts, there’s still a lot of hops in this one. The carbonization is very sparkly, making it - despite all the sweetness - quite easy to drink.

Draft @ De Dolle. Shared with the UnPer100 crew. Brune foncée, col beige tenace. Arôme est plaisant et assez envoutant, sort un peu du lot des bières brunes belges. Ici un accent est mis sur le malt, retrouve pas mal de chocolat, fruité noir perce en rétro accompagné d’une fine pointe de réglisse. Palais est enclin à bien mettre l’accent sur les 9% de cette bière, retrouve un profil chaleureux, bien garnit au niveau des malts, chocolaté, grillé, caramel, le tout conserve un léger côté épicé qui perdure et sans être dominant est un élément important de cette version. Ce dernier s’apparente à la réglisse. Une classique du style qui se laisse déguster.

Ok, j’ai affaire ici à une bière dont le profil ne m’est pas familier. La bière est brune et se gonfle de mousse de manière chaotique et démesurée lors du service. Je dois être très prudent! Cette mousse ne tient pas vraiment cependant et en peu de temps, elle n’est plus qu’un souvenir. Lorsque j’approche le verre de mon nez, je suis frappé par des arômes sûres et violentes. Rien à voir avec le profil des bières sûres sauvages classiques. Non, l’attaque est pourrie. Cependant, une fois cette attaque passée, de douces saveurs de fruits se développent doucement sous mes narines intriguées et admiratives. Un prune fabuleuse se marie a une cerise noire qui sont accompagnées de fruits plus délicats telles la clémentine et le noyau d’abricot. Un nez prodigieusement complexe! En bouche, une effervescence beaucoup trop agressive pour moi vient gâter la dégustation car je peine réellement à laisser couler le liquide dans ma bouche sans heurts. Beaucoup d’alcool je dois le mentionner, mais au-delà de ces deux défauts (importants pour moi cela dit) le liquide est aussi complexe qu’il l’était au nez il y a à peine un instant. Une texture moelleuse supporte une quantité fulgurante de fruits noirs et confits. Un jus de dattes et de pruneaux (sans ses effets relâcheurs je l’espère!) maturé avec savoir, sagesse et intelligence. Le fruit confit, l’orange et une fraise. J’aurais sans doute pu donner une note parfaite à cette bière si ça n’avait pas été des deux importants défauts mentionnés plus haut. Peut-être ma bouteille a-t-elle mal vieilli? Il faudra que je déguste à nouveau car je suis visiblement ici devant un produit d’exception.

Good aroma, and particulary good taste. It goes well with Arabier’s pâté and spanish jam.
