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 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.

Draft. Orange/pineapple, caramel malt, and light hay aroma. Golden yellow with nice head. Very sweet orange/pineapple, caramel malt, and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Nice body and balance. Excellent - not sure how I missed this for so long.

Tap into a wineglass showing red wine with a finger of clean white foam. The nose is tart and acetic with hints of blackberries. The palate is lightly carbonated and medium bodied. Very light flavors of dark fruit (plums, blackberries, cassis) and a light bitterness on the finish.

JohnGalt1 (1663) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Cherry wood brown with huge 2 finger lite tan head. Sticky lacing lingers for a long time. A little cloudy from a crappy pour. Initial aroma reminds me a very watered down Supplication. Next is dry slightly floral and pungent ... Nuttiness fades to an almost dry amaretto aroma. Pepper low coriander and finishes with an unexpected Belgian yeast spiceness and maybe a little bit of tartness. Very unique and flowing flavors .... spices and fruit meld to yeast fruitiness ending with a dry tart finish.

Bottle at Poechenellekelder. Rich plum character with a jam feel, some porto wine quality, great finish. Definitely a classic with a dangerously hidden abv.
